“The heart of a woman should be so lost in God that a man must be searching for the Lord to find it.”
After we get married, we get so wrapped up in our husbands. We want their attention, we want to be there for them, and we want to show them love and affection. But I think sometimes we get so wrapped up or “lost” in our husbands that we forget about God. He needs to come first, even above our marriage.
To me, it’s a strange thought. Something else coming before my husband? I mean I know God should come first, but do I really put Him first above my husband? Not an easy question to ask! But when I put it into terms with the quote above, I realized how true, and even how better it is to do it that way.
If our husbands have to go to the Lord first to “find” us and our hearts, then our marriage is going to be even better for it! So how do we become so lost in God? I believe that comes when we focus on Him, read His Word, pray every day, and talk to Him like He is our best friend. Instead of wondering what we are going to do, we ask God. Instead of being fearful, we trust. Instead of trying to things on our own, we ask for His help and strength.
When we do these things we become lost in God, in His Word, and in HIS love. When we are lost in God, then we are ready for our husbands to find us. We are ready to be the best wife we can be with God’s help.
When our husbands have to seek the Lord to find our hearts, then their hearts will be lost in God as well. They will be praying, reading His Word, and seeking His face daily. When both hearts are focused on God, then God brings those hearts together. And that is the goal. For your heart to be found. To be brought together in unity under God with your husband’s.
