The Steps of a Good Man are Ordered by the Lord

Updated: Mar 6, 2021

Is he a good man? Is he not a good man?

The questions that plague the mind of a wife who has seen the best in her husband, yet has also had a run with the worst.

Sometimes, you may ask yourself, "why has he changed so much?" or say "this isn't the man I fell in love with."

The idea of perfection that surrounds marriage is something that consumes most before the wedding, and once the marriage is finalized, the shock of reality hits like a ton of bricks.

My husband was never perfect and neither was yours. We saw the best in them because that "is" the best of them.

No husband is perfect - and as a human being, they will: โ€ข ๐™€๐™ง๐™ง๐™ค๐™ง ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ โ€ข ๐™๐™–๐™ก๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ โ€ข ๐™ƒ๐™ช๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™›๐™š๐™š๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ โ€ข ๐™‰๐™š๐™œ๐™ก๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™š๐™™๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ โ€ข ๐™ˆ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™™๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ช๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ โ€ข ๐™‰๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ฌ๐™š๐™ง ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ฅ๐™๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™š ๐™˜๐™–๐™ก๐™ก ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จ

But that doesn't take away the good that resides in them.

In all fairness, the things listed above could be said about you and me.

I don't know about you, but when I've failed at being #theeloquentwife, I want a little grace. I don't want to be kicked when I'm already down.

The Bible says that a just (righteous) man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: || Proverbs 24:16

If the Lord, being Holy and Righteous is rooting for our husbands and giving them strength and courage to not stay down when they've fallen, but to keep pressing to be better today than yesterday - shouldn't we do the same in return?

โ€ข Marriage requires lots of love, grace, forgiveness, and long-suffering. You can't change the unpleasant ways of your spouse, but you can always stand in the gap and go to God in prayer concerning him.

Love covers a multitude of sins. || 1 Peter 4:8
