Created to be His Help Meet ~ 2

Chapter 2 ~ A Merry Heart
  • Proverbs 17:22 A Merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones
  • A merry heart is the foundation of health and happiness. And the day you have a merry heart will be the first day of rebuilding your marriage into the heavenly gift it was meant to be.
  • Love is like a flower: you can't expect it to grow without sunshine. Has your husband seen your sunshine lately?
  • Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance...
  • Do you have an attitude of contentment?
  • Remind him that you miss him when he is at work... remind him that you love him no matter what... remind him that you appreciate him.
  • Women spend billions of dollars every year to make themselves more attractive, but the most effective beauty aid is free - a joyful smile
  • No man has ever crawled out from under his wife's criticism to be a better man - no matter how justified her condemnation
  • Never demand that a man love you and cherish you because he ought to. Earn every smile and shared moment. Cultivate his love for you.
  • The tool of your warfare is your loving, kind, delightful, radiant, adoring self.
  • God stands with you when you stand by your man, but you will stand alone if you insist on standing by your rights. Always remember that the day you stop smiling is the day you stop trying to make your marriage heavenly
  • Stand by your man!

Time to Consider

  • God's perfect will is that I learn to be the best help meet possible.
  • Bubbling cheer goes a long way to maintain or even restore a marriage. Make a decision right now to break the "poor me" habit.
  • Establish a new habit ~ What can I do today that will make him smile?
  • Think of other ways and times during the day that you can establish a habit of praise and thanksgiving by showing joy. Write them down, think of yourself doing them, and then practice this new and wonderful habit all day long.
