ABC's of a Godly Home - Day Q

Day Q - Quiet and Queen

Spiritual Challenge Day Q - Quiet. 1 Peter  3:3,4 "Do not let your adorning be external-the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear- but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." Today your challenge is to look at yourself and to see if you are more concerned with your external or internal beauty. This might be easy for some of you but for others it might be really hard. The above verse reminds us that to God, our heart and our spirit are of more concern than our outer beauty. Another thing that we need to see in this verse is that we are to have a gentle and quiet spirit. Loud talk, yelling and being harsh with our words are not characteristics of a gentle and quiet spirit. So today ask God to help you have a gentle and quiet spirit and ask Him to keep your focus on your inner beauty more than your outer.

Physical Challenge Day Q - Queen. I want you to realize that you are the queen of your castle. But I'm not talking about being queen in the sense of you make all the rules, I'm talking about how set the tone for your home. As queen your attitude effects the attitudes of all those around you. Have you ever realized that? Have you ever noticed that when you are short with your children, their attitudes start reflecting that? Your physical challenge today goes along with the theme of your spiritual challenge. Today you are to smile and be positive all day! No harsh words, no short tempers and no ugly wrinkled up faces. Smile! Everytime you go by a mirror, smile. Everytime you look at one of your children, smile. When your husband gets home, smile at him. Make a conscious effort today to be a happy and joyful queen.
