Woman! Know Your Place!
All you women of God:
Should ever a man tell you to know your place, then, by all means, KNOW your place. It is a place of value that is far above that of rubies. Let no harsh word take root in you and rob you of that truth.
On the other hand, respect your man. Give him even more respect than you think is due him. He is, after all, your covering. Encourage him and he will rise up to be a strong tower for you, a strong tower in the likeness of God.
As for you who are divorced:
It is true; God hates divorce. Yet, He granted Israel a divorce because she was an adulteress. (Jer. 3:8) How painful that must have been for a God who hates divorce. He hates it because it tears families apart. It is the bond of family that He hates seeing torn.
On the other hand, the Son of God laid His life down for you. There is no greater love than that. Never let the religious, self righteous opinion of another convince you that God, who hates divorce, would expect you to remain married to a man who hurts you, physically, mentally, emotionally, or otherwise. It is one thing to remain married to a man who doesn’t know Christ so that he might see Him shining in you. It is an entirely different thing to stay in an abusive relationship simply because religiously opinionated people point their fingers at you.
You STILL, though divorced have a place of value that is far above rubies. Rise above the ashes and KNOW your place.

A wonderful write Joyce, never has been the truth better spoken and I might add ever-single word true. You are very spiritual minded that is obvious, thanks for sharing you’re wisdom. More men should be giving this and Amen, I will, “AMEN”
I have but one Lord and He is my Husband and my covering and His name is Jesus, the Son of Man. I have but one God and His name is Immanuel, “who is God with us” and He is the covering of Jesus. For no man will I fear and only One will I call Lord. My mate of 23 years is my companion in my walk through this life..... and even when our struggles are many, Christ is always with us, guiding, comforting and counseling.
Amen,Blessed is He who comes in the name of The Lord,and Blessed is the Holy Marriage in Him!!! I sure Thank God for my Blessed Marriage for it is His Grace that keeps it Beautiful each day! With Jesus Love, Dee "Numbers 6:24,25,26"
