"And the contentions of a wife are a continual are a continual dripping." Proverbs 19:13b
Be careful your conversation does not revolve around quarrels and controversies (contention). It is so easy to allow the worries of this age to dominate our thoughts and then our conversations. Ladies, we are the heartbeat of our home. Our attitude literally has the ability to affect the atmosphere around us. When we spend time with the Lord we are filling ourselves up with his goodness, love, wisdom, positivity, strength and joy. Our attitude and His attributes then spill over into our home and all those living in it because we reflect what we give our face time too! I find when I immerse myself in the Word there is no room for the worrisome, pesky little thoughts that stir up contentions and lead to quarrels and strife. This is how we protect our conversations from becoming a continual drip of discussing the bad news, worries, etc that can easily permeate our day. I can then respond instead of react to the tests and trials that come my way. This gives me an advantage over the enemy whose goal is to stir up strife in our homes. So be wise in the way you start your day! A quick little prayer is a great start but we need more – we need armor, we need wisdom, and we need peace!
"A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands." Proverbs 14:1 NLT
