asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious
Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that
you may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart
may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which
He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the
saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That
power is like the working of his mighty strength..."
"That He would grant you, according to the riches of
His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in
the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able
to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length
and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes
knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of
God" (Eph 3:16-19)
When God created woman from Adam's rib - God knew exactly
what He was doing. Even though woman is from man's flesh and
bone; she is totally different from man on EVERY level of
woman's life. And I am speaking of the spirit, and of the
heart. She is unto as "the weaker vessel" of strength
only. But when it comes to the spirit and the heart; woman is
much stronger than man. Woman can endure much pain - physically
and emotionally - more so than man. And her discernment is much
higher and valued greater than man. This is not to say she lacks
pride and ego such as man because she does. But in her
discernment - her value is justified.
In God's endearment - He places value upon woman as His Rose;
as His Diamond. Even though she is equal to man; God had placed
virtues upon a woman's heart to be as she was created to be -
and that is man's helper. If man listens to his woman he
would gain more value upon himself then he could ever possibly
realize. Throughout the Bible God speaks of woman's virtue

After reading these virtues - stop and think about your wife... I
would almost guarantee your wife possesses most - if not all of
these virtues.... Now look at yourself and count the ways. How
many of these virtues do you have living in your heart????
I pray you are now beginning to see the bigger picture concerning
your wife; her heart; and her spirit.
When was the last time you ever wrote your wife a love letter -
or have you ever? When was the last time you partaken on a
journey with your wife - such as making a list of things you have
not ever done with her? Here is a list to begin with and in your
own heart - add to it in your heart's content:
A marriage is the
most difficult relationship known to man or woman. It is a work
in process from your wedding day until our Lord brings you home.
And if there is anything in you want to save your marriage; then
the time is now to begin rebuilding. To know woman (your wife) is
something you must seek our Lord in guidance to help you with.
You cannot do it with your own understanding without our Lord
Jesus and there is no question about it. You have to build an
intimacy with God before you can build one with your wife. You
have to trust God with all your soul; with all your mind; with
all your heart; and with all your might. Ask our Lord to help you
and believe me - He will help you. But you first must have the
desire in doing so.
