Introduction

If you missed the last post that sets up this one, click here.

So this was the introduction for the ladies.  Hope you enjoy this series of posts. :)

Usually at some stage in life we will come to the point of asking ourselves, Why am I here?  and What really is my purpose in life?

As women, to answer these questions we have to go back to Genesis.  We know about the story of creation.  God spent 6 days creating; day, night, land, seas, plants, animals and finally man.  And God said, It's all good.

When the realization came that all the animals had a companion to share and do life with, and Adam, the supreme of all earthly beings did not, God said...

It is not good that man should be alone; I will make for him a help meet fit for him.  Genesis 2:18

God recognized a dilemma, created an answer, and that answer is you and me.  We were created to love, support, and to help those in our lives meet the goals God has given them.  And if you are married this means your husband first and foremost.

OK.  For all you ladies out there wanting to scream at me, But what about my goals in life?  What about all I want to do and accomplish?

Here's your answer,  But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness; and all these other things will be given to you in addition. Matthew 6:33

How do you care for His kingdom?  By living the way He subscribes.  And in this case it means having divine order in your home and being a help meet for your spouse first.  And like I told the ladies Sunday night, What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you.  In other words, all these other things will be given to you in addition.

Now that we know our purpose and why we're here (to be a source of stability, comfort and help allowing our husbands to accomplish all God has set before him) then here is our next question we need to understand the answer to...

What is it that my husband needs from me?

I have six answers to this one question.  Join me tomorrow as I share the first one with you.

And if you did not get a chance to register to win a free copy of the very book that has helped me more in my marriage than any I've ever read, click here.  I even added a picture of me at my wedding shower for you.

Try not to laugh too hard at the hair. :)
