I was highly convicted by this passage in 1Peter when I read it in my ESV Journaling Bible (affiliate link). I’m not the best wife… I’m hardly respectful to my loving husband who puts up with my crazy, and pure in conduct not so much, I try to get “my” way a lot. While I don’t worry too much about my outward appearance, I also have been neglecting my inward. Remember I said I was “HIGHLY” convicted by this passage!!!
I have to remember beauty comes from inside, comes from a holy life and walk with the Lord. That my harsh mouth is not beautiful and that a gentle and quiet spirit is. Lord, help me show you instead of me.
Lord, help me be a better wife to Mark. To show your love, to give honor to him as the head of our household, and help our marriage get stronger and better throughout the years! May we faithful serve your church for many more years together!
