There is so much to learn in marriage. About how I am selfish beyond measure. Wanting to prove my worth always. Even to the point of finding my worthiness in how Joel acts as a husband. Not the way it ought to be at all.

My identity and righteousness comes from Christ alone. Alone. And I should rejoice and be honored that He has given me a man to walk with, who also desperately yearns for Christ and His Beloveds, and is often so much better at just loving than I am.

How to be a good wife? How to be the bride of Christ? Two pressing questions in my life.
