free to be me: just right for him

>> October 13, 2011

Being a Pastor's Wife looks different for every woman. Some PW's are stay at home mommy's, some have careers, some work on church staff; some have independent ministries and travel, many endless scenarios.

Genesis 2:18 It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him. (NLT)

Did you know that God made you "Just Right" for your husband?

  • If you got married and he was already in ministry, you are just right.
  • If you got married when he was in seminary, you are just right.
  • If you got married and he went into the ministry after 10 years, you are just right.
It might not feel like it at times, but you are "just right" for him. The unique gifting and call that God has placed on your life is there to compliment your husband as well as fulfill your mandate and assignment from on high. God placed you all together like a perfectly matched puzzle piece that when separate, it can function, but when together it fits just right and is powerfully part of a bigger picture.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you....(NIV)

One objective of the enemy is to have you question your self-worth, your impact around you, your place in the ministry and life. If he can keep you guessing instead of walking in confidence he has you where he wants you.

God wants you in a position where you can say "I am Free to be Me"; meaning it and liking who you are. If you don't like who you are, ask the Lord to change you. Seek Him and His ways instead of remaining frustrated. Allow yourself permission to begin to change. Ask the Holy Spirit what is your will for MY life? You created me, show me how to best operate and function. Ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen you so that the resolve he has placed within you is stronger than any excuse you can come up with. The bible says in 2 Corinthians 2:10...when I am weak, then am I strong. We are strong because our strength comes from the Lord.

My prayer for you today is that you can stand tall and say, "I am Free to be Me". Thriving and operating in all God has destined for you.
