What's a helper?

Helper:  a person that gives assistance without getting in the way

Wives, who love God, assist their husbands.

To give help, or assistance, a wife must know her husband's needs.

To know a husband's needs, a wife must study her husband by watching him, and listening to him.

Of course, she can ask concerning those things, but to have someone just "tune-in" is great— huh?

Isn't that what a wife wants?

Are you giving it?

Give and it shall be given (Luke 6:38).

Or scream, and cry, pout, and manipulate, but I guarantee you that a husband does not need that.

The desires, of a woman who loves God, will be met.

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).

Or do you not believe?

Those who believe, love, and those who love, obey (I John 5:3).

The helper, of a man, loves him. She is patient with him. She gives— demanding nothing.

She will not seek her own way; she will give, and give again, keeping her eye on the prize.

The call of God is upward, not inward, and not to consume on one's own lust (Phil 3:14).

Do you help, or do you hinder?

Does your heart long for heaven, or stuff, and a better/different husband?

Do you seek peace (Psalm 34:14), or long to change your husband? (there is no verse to justify that)

Knowing the God of all comforts allows the married woman to walk the narrow path in peace.

Do you walk in peace?

If not, metanoia.

Change your mind about the sin that you do, and do not pick at the sin in your husband's life.

It ain't yours to fix.

The song by Coldplay, "Fix you," is sweet, but off-base.

We don't fix anyone.

We love. We pray. We help.

God changes people, and husbands, and you.

Those who love God, love others— all others, including that husband who isn't what you want.

What do you want?

Do you want to be a helper?

Cry out to the Helper.

Repent of your unloving way, and walk the narrow way; the Helper of all helpers gives strength.

He is almighty, and strong to deliver you, but first, turn to him, and repent.

The days are short, and the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Love one another (John 13:34), and love your husband (Titus 2:4).
