Marraige Challenge: Day 5 – Are You a Porcupine Wife?

Marriage Challenge: Day 5 – Are You a Porcupine Wife?
“A porcupine has a lot of good points, but nobody wants to be around it.”

I loved this topic, it was so convicting and very encouraging. I have to be honest, I have been a porcupine wife to my hubby. I am soo sorry babe, I love you!! I want to be a fluffy bunny wife! Not hurtly, gentle, soft and quiet.
Matthew 5:9 says “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”
I was encouraged by what Courtney pointed out to help to not be a porcupine wife:
The key:

1. Pray. Ask God to help you have restraint and to keep you from hurting your husband.
2. Study God’s word and let him renew your mind. Go through Proverbs chapters 10-31 and mark every verse that refers to the tongue and your speech – you’ll be amazed at all of the wisdom there! It truly IS life changing!
3. Memorize. Pick one of the verses from your Proverbs study and memorize it! Then in times when you are tempted to “poke” your husband – pause – and recite God’s word…let it change you from the inside out!

This is part 5 in a series of 10!
