Train the young women...
Your Covenant Marriage
Marriage is a covenant relationship:

Matthew 19:6
"So they are no longer two but
one flesh
. What therefore
God has joined together
, let man not separate."
Marriage is a gift from God
(1 Corinthians 7:7)
Agape Love:
Sacrificial love
Show Agape Love by yielding to your husbands authority as leader of your household.
Are your gender roles in your marriage currently reversed? If so, talk with your husband about changing that tonight.
Philos Love: Companion - friendship
*The Proverbs 31 Woman- verses about Wives*

He should trust you (31:11)

Help, build, encourage (31:12)

You reflect on his reputation.
Talking bad about your husband in front of your children, friends, or in public it tarnishes his reputation. (31:23)

Pursuing Righteousness
Use Gods Word as the target.
What is your motive in all
of this?

Your motivation should
always be in total surrender
to the Lord Jesus Christ and
not for your own personal gain.
Live a Life Surrendered to Christ and Pursing Holiness.
Ephesians 3:14-21

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant us to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in our being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith-that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in (our marriages) and in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Many of us learned about sex
in the context of shame.

Whether it was seeing something
you shouldn't have, pornography,
being sexually active before marriage,
molestation, incest, rape, abortion,
or parents warning not to
have sex with no explanation.

Your body becomes hard wired to associate
sexual pleasure with shame and guilt that
does not go away just because you got married.

Understand Your Husband's Need for Sexual Intimacy
*Sexual intimacy reduces the temptation for your husband to engage in sexual sin.
A de-synchronized sex drive is NOT a valid excuse.
Many times our life is a combination of hits and misses. But thanks be to God for his grace through faith in Jesus Christ because we all fall short of God's perfect standard.
see Romans 3 & 6
Once you have a biblical understanding
about sex, you can begin to understand
the importance of sexual intimacy in your marriage.
Ultimate Agape Love looks like this:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends".
The book of Proverbs indicates that a nagging
complaining, quarreling wife is a great burden to
their husband, not just minor irritations but a source of structural damage to her household.
Proverbs 19:13
A Wife's quarreling is a
continual dripping of rain.
Proverbs 25:24 & 21:19
It is better to live in a desert
land than with a quarrelsome
and fretful woman.
Proverbs 21:9
It is better to live in
a corner of the housetop
than in a house shared
with a quarrelsome wife.
What exactly is the root problem of your nagging and complaining?

Pray that God would reveal the problem to you, so you take action to stop it.
The fact that your husband may fall short
in some areas in your marriage, does not excuse ill behavior on your part. You must do your part and STOP complaining and nagging your husband...
Do you have a clue what he loves to do? Investigate! Research it and then plan a date to do it together.
Be friends with your husband! Remember, from Malachi 2:10, he is your companion!

Find fun things to do together, just you and him.
*Proverbs 17:17
A friend loves at all times.

But we still Nag him...
NOT a picture of 1 Cor 7:3
God's Word IS good for correcting and rebuking but God is faithful and He does not just leave it as "STOP-IT". God's Word is also good to teaches us and trains us "HOW- TO" stop-it. (2 Tim 3:16)

We will discuss training a bit later.
My Husband may not be perfect but he is perfect for me.
.."she is your companion and your wife by covenant". Malachi 2:14
"wives submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord."
Ephesians 5:22
Wives strive to be: patient, kind, content, humble, yielding,
rejoice when he does good, bear his burdens , believe in him, endure his faults.
Wives STOP being:
envious, boasting, arrogant,
rude, having your own way, irritable, resentful, rejoicing in his failures, inconsiderate, selfish.
Ever lasting love, your love may endure forever.

Don't ever give up on your marriage.
Lets address the nagging wife...
God will equip you with what you need to be a Godly wife to your husband.

(Hebrews 13:21)
Why do you feel the way you do about sex?

What is the root problem?

Sex within marriage has physical, emotional and spiritual benefits.
God designed marriage as the place for the expression of human sexuality.
Once you can identify what the problem is
you can then start the process to bring healing
to this part of your marriage.
Sexual Sin may have given you the wrong impression about sex in general.
Identify your sexual root problem(s) so you can start the healing process in this area of your life.
1 Corinthians 7:3-5
The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
Do not deprive one another
, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
Show Agape love with Eros love.
Your desire is WAY different than his desire

what are you thinking when...
* you're cleaning up after your husband in the kitchen?

* you're putting away things he has left out in the living room?

* you're picking up his dirty clothes in the bed room?
Then what would you be thinking when...
* you're being intimate with your husband?
Are you complaining and nagging in your head?
What is your attitude going to be towards your husband when he walks through the door?
Would you want to be intimate with him after
having these complaining thoughts?
Romans 12:2
..."be transformed by the renewal of your mind"...
Assuming you have surrendered your life to Christ, put off your old self and put on Christ as suggested in Eph. 4:22
Ephesians 4:22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
"Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks". Matthew 12:34
"Create in me a clean heart,
O God, and renew a right spirit
with in me". Psalm 51:10
* Pray FOR your husband not AGAINST your husband!
Pure and Pure
produces righteous words and actions
Great resource for that is
"The Power of a Praying Wife"
by Stormie Omartian
Always be in pursuit
of righteousness

It takes a STRONG woman to be a Biblical woman!

* Be SRTONG in The LORD and in the STRENGTH of His MIGHT *
Ephesians 6:10
When a wife has a motivation of surrender to Christ as she pursues to be the wife God intended her to be, then she is truly loving her husband.
Confess any unforgiveness,
bitterness or resentment you have
toward your husband.
Train your attitude
Apply the Put Off/ Put On concept to the
"what are you thinking when..." slide.
"wives submit to your own husbands, as to the LORD." Ephesians 5:22
Applying the Ephesians Put off Put on
concept will train you to have a good
