Wife After God By Jennifer Smith, Cymplified!

I believe that there’s always room for improvement in each of us. We can always be better versions of ourselves. We can always do better in each of our own roles. I can be better in my role as a wife. I can be a better wife with God’s help. That’s how @unveiledwife‘s Wife After God 30 day marriage devotional has been an instrument in my aim to improve as a wife.

This devotional encourages Christian wives to “draw closer to God and to their husbands”. I know that people say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But, if I could do something to avoid it getting broken, then, why not? Right?

Following the advice of Jennifer Smith, the author, I wrote down the focus verse of the day, what God is teaching me, prayer and answers to questions. Some days have challenges included in them. There are times I feel the questions were too many, usually three, and too difficult. Maybe I feel like I’m taking an exam, or maybe these questions dig into issues I have trouble facing. It’s good to have my heart examined, right? Maybe it’s just me, hehe!

These are the things I like about Wife After God:

  • It is based on the Bible. The messages and thoughts were written according to the focus verses. This is very important because God’s Word is the truth. This devotional aids in the practical application of Scripture.
  • It assures me of God’s love for me. He is faithful even if I make mistakes and hurt my husband, intentionally or unintentionally. God forgives me and in turn, I model this forgiveness to my family.
  • It shows situations I can relate with. I may not be in the exact same circumstance, but I also struggle with the same feelings and pressures. This devotional showed me passages that could help me cope.
  • It encourages me to pray. Praying is vital in the life of a follower of Jesus Christ. He even taught us how to pray. I believe in the power of prayer and praying for my husband blesses our marriage.
  • It encourages me to seek God. I have learned that when I seek the heart of God, I will find the heart of my husband, the love of my life.

At first I was slow in doing the devotional because of the challenges I stated above, then I realized it doesn’t have to perfect. I could do it my own way provided I read the Bible verses and write down words that REALLY speak to me. Words that I genuinely lift to the Lord in prayer. Toward the end, I was always looking forward to what I’m going to learn about each day.

  1. I thought I’ve read this before when I’ve read the title but I’ve read a different book pala “A Wife After God’s Own Heart” by Elizabeth George. I’ll check this book because I know that I can still improve more. 🙂

  2. This book reminds me of the book that was given to me. It’s about God’s email to guys or males (something like that). It’s a good daily read.

  4. Actually I don’t read that much but this book is a must read. And I agree, it’s not just about fixing broken things. If we can do things to prevent broken relationship then me must. Thank you for sharing this one sis.

  5. Being a wife and mom is not easy and I totally agree that we need improvement in being one. It’s only by God’s help and strength that we can be what He wants us to be. By the way, the book really looks like a good read and aid for meditation.

    I agree with you. I think I have to rekindle my relationship with Him. After reading this post, my faith in love, Him, and everything else in between, came back.
