What the heck is ta multifaceted wife? Am I her? Is this a good or bad thing? These were questions I had when I was asked to minister this message.
Since I had no clue what Multifaceted truly meant (I only heard it a 20 thousand times in my adult life), I decided to it look up. Trust, I am not that super smart. I chose to begin with the root word: FACET.
The 1st Webster definition of facet is: a small, flat surface on a jewel. That’s just one side.
WOW! I love this definition! So if we are multifaceted, then we make up all the sides of a jewel. This then technically makes us jewels. Right?
Zechariah 9:16 (NLT) On that day the Lord their God will rescue his people, just as a shepherd rescues his sheep. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown.
Girl, did you see that?? Jewels in a crown. That’s in the BIBLE!
Jewels are unbreakable and always shining. Beautiful! To be cherished. Priceless! One of a kind. Irreplaceable! Needs insurance and added to your homeowner’s policy. Wow! We are some pretty important ladies. I know when I got my 15 year anniversary ring with that elusive “big rock”, I just knew I was something special girlfriend.
So, how does this correlate to being a wife. Well, in my book, Being a Wife Just Got Real, I share the many roles we play as wives. Nurse, secretary, travel agent, chef, laundress, mistress, counselor and the l
ist goes on and on. Those descriptions show just how multifaceted we are. I’m sure many of you can testify that you are your husband’s jewel. Priceless in his eyes even if he doesn’t express it (I got, “you know you are so why do I have to say it?”).
So as you go along this day, keep your head up if your marriage is a hot mess right now. There is hope on the other side! Trust me, I was there. When I focused on my multifaceted and often complex role as a wife, my marriage changed. If God did it for me, He will most certainly do it for you sis!
Romans 8:28 Amplified Bible (AMP) And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.
What roles do you fill for your husband? If not married, how can you prepare to fill the multiple roles of a wife?
