From Overwhelmed to Free by picking 5 things

18054698Over the summer the women’s Bible study group I’m apart of read the book The Power of a Praying Wife” by Stormie Omartian. Before reading this book I have never heard of Stormie or anything she had written, my expectations were kind of low since I’m not much of a reader to begin with. But I was going to give it a go since I wanted to be able to share with my group and not feel left out.

Chapter one, His Wife, kicked my butt…I thought this book was about praying for my husband not about me!!! As I am reading through this chapter I am taking notes and highlighting scriptures that I would like to remember for certain situations. It wasn’t until I got to the “Creating a Home” section that I was overwhelmed with conviction.

…you will still be expected to see that the heart of your home is a peaceful sanctuary-a source of contentment, acceptance, rejuvenation, nurturing, rest, and love for your family. On top of this, you will also be expected to be sexually appealing, a good cook, a great mother, and physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit. …These are basic things a man may not compliment his wife on every day (or ever), but he will notice if they are not done.

After reading all of that I circled the list and wrote next to it “I fail in all categories.” I felt like such a failure and didn’t want to read anymore after that. The next day still feeling overwhelmed by how am I

n-OVERWHELMED-MOM-large570 going to accomplish all of this when I struggle so much as it is, God spoke to me. He didn’t speak audible but to my heart and this is what He said  “Don’t worry about the list, pick 5 things that matter to YOUR husband and see that they are done. We will work on the rest together later.” I don’t think I can explain the kind of peace that came over me but it was as if I huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.

It’s been a month since I’ve been taking care of those 5 things and the Lord is slowly helping me take care of rest of the list. I no longer freak out about “How am I ever going to get all this done?” which is so freeing! If you struggle like I did in anyway I encourage you to start with 5 things and give your To-Do List to God!

Oh and just in case you were wondering what the 5 things that matter to my husband here’s the list:

1)Make sure sweet tea is made (he’s a southern boy)
2)Dinner is Ready
3)Clean Underwear
4)Work Clothes are ready
5)His lunch is packed.

Looking Good!

Early in my marriage I use to joke about now I no longer have to try so hard to impress him he’s stuck with me now. How wrong I was!!! We are to honor our husbands with our behavior as well as our appearance while also not becoming vain. I know, I know…what you’re saying “When do I have time after getting the kids ready?” or “He never takes me out or gives me a reason to get dressed up.” It doesn’t matter if you have a date night once a month or never, LADIES it’s our duty to earn that second look from our man!! Just like we want our husbands to still be romantic and surprise us once in awhile we should do the same just in a more visual way. (wink, wink) So break out the heels, dust off the make-up bag, plug up the straighter, spray on some perfume and go get your MAN!!! (by man I mean your husband only, of course)

In honor of Looking Good! I will be doing a giveaway that just might come in handy, don’t worry it’s nothing weird I promise!

I will be giving away 12 free redbook subscriptions. (picture on the left) I will also be giving away 12 L’Oreal Goodie Bags just as pictured on the right. So 24 prizes in all just click the link below to enter!
