"she will do him good and not evil all the days of her life."
proverbs 31:12 kjv
"ALL the days" - from the time you're a little girl in pigtails to the time you're walking down the aisle to say, "i do,"clear on up until death do you part.
yes, i'm bringing our someday-husbands into the picture again today. ;)
is the way you're living right now doing good to your husband? even if you're not married and have no clue who your husband even is, the way you live right now, the choices you make right now, will affect the rest of your life, and that, of course, includes the life you will live with your husband someday.
are your choices today ones that you can be proud of, ones that will do good to your future and, therefore, your husband?
do you pray for your husband? this most certainly includes the someday-husbands of us unmarried ladies. only recently did i realize the importance of this, and it is something i wish i had done more faithfully when i was younger.
i mean, think about it -by praying regularly for your husband, you can have a huge impact on his life long before you even meet him!
it can be hard to pray for someone you don't know, especially if you're like me and like to be able to pray for specific needs. but without even knowing him at all, you can pray for God to strengthen him, bless him, encourage him, surround him with godly, uplifting people who will cause him to draw nearer to the Lord. you can pray that God would help him to guard himself against impure thoughts and actions. more generally, but still one of my favorite ways to pray is to ask God to make my husband more like Christ.
so you see, even if you're not married, you can make godly choices for your life and uphold your husband in prayer, having a tremendous impact for his good, "all the days of [your] life."
