My wife and helper

My wife and helper
S - Gen 2:18 (NASB)
18 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”


 “This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”
 24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

O - From the beginning God had a plan in His creation.  First to create all things, then to create man in His image, and then to give man a relationship with his own flesh and blood.   The scripture says it is not good for man to alone, and he needs a helper.  The principle relationship God gives us from the beginning is one with our spouse.

A - As I start the new year, in a new house, on the adventure and mission God has prepared for me, I am reminded of the helpmate He has blessed me with and the relationship He intends me to work within to cultivate life on earth. 

P - Dear heavenly Father, thank you for this refreshing of your plan and your creation.  Thank you for all that you continue to invest in my and Abby's life.  I pray Lord that you would continue to refresh, provide, and guide us in pursuit of you plan for our lives.  I pray all that in Jesus name, Amen.
