♕ Today's Promise: “Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1 Peter 3:4 NIV
Beautiful brides, I’d like to share with you how my Beloved was so faithful to me when I followed the principle of Won Without A Word. I now live close to family and my children are seeing their grandparents often. My mother-in-law is amazing. She’s also talkative and sometimes makes people uncomfortable. I knew living closer to everyone I’d have to put all the RMI principles, Biblical principles, into practice often. A couple of weeks ago, after spending time with my son, my mother-in-law told my earthly husband that our son didn’t speak enough and needed speech therapy. EH told me what his response to her comment was and I’m thankful he actually said what I believe as well. We were in agreement. Praise the Lord! My first instinct was to get annoyed. I checked that feeling and threw it away. Then, I considered if what she said had merit. I spoke to HH to please let me know if I should do anything. This comment was VERY hard for me. It kept going around in circles in my head. Each time I would give it to HH for him to take care of. My flesh wanted to speak to her. My Heavenly Husband wanted me quiet, so I stayed quiet and waited for Him to make this good.
My Love is so faithful that today when she was watching the kids as I was away from home, my son was very talkative, repeating what his cartoons were saying, singing, and just showing off. My Love made that happen in front of her and I didn’t need to say a word. I was not raised to Win Without a Word. My instinct is always to defend myself. Now, I do my best to let HH fight my battles. It hasn’t come easy for me to let go of my old ways, but it’s always so rewarding. My Love, You continue to amaze me. You keep showing me ways in which You work everything for my good. This uncomfortable comment turned into a praise report. Thank you that I can give You all my concerns and worries and you take care of them. You are amazing!
Sweet brides, winning without a word goes against what most of us were taught. There are very few people who do it. Yet, He asks us to. I encourage you to listen to His leading. Try this principle. Put it into practice. It will make you wiser and it will give your HH room to work and show off. You will be so joyful knowing He took care of your concern. You can trust Him.
