I was created to be his.
I was created to be his help meet.
Let that sink in for a moment. I was not created to be a great entrepreneur or the most amazing chef. I was not created to be an eloquent speaker or a talented musician. Although those things aren’t a bad thing to be, that is not what I was created to be.
I was created to be my husband’s help meet.
How do I know? God told me so. Genesis 2:18 says, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
I have been thinking a lot about this lately and asking myself the question, “Am I fulfilling my role as his help meet?” Am I really helping him?
I do the dishes, I cook meals, I teach our children, I iron his clothes, and the list goes on. But those are already my jobs. I wonder if I could take it a step further and help him with things that he is working on. So I sat down and numbered a paper from 1-5. I thought I will just think of 5 ways that I can be a better help meet to my husband. These are things beyond the daily chores that I do. You know how far I got? #1. That’s it. I could only think of one way to be a better help to my husband.
So I must be doing pretty good, right? If I can only think of one thing that I am not already doing? Ha, no! It means I better open up my eyes and look around! I better start talking to my husband and ask him what can I help him with.
So that is my challenge to you this weekend. Write out Genesis 2:18 in your notebook, then number the paper 1-5. Think of 5 ways you can help your husband and be a better help meet to him. If you can’t think of 5 ways than start observing and ask your husband what he would like help with.
