Guarding Your Thoughts - Preparing To Be A Help Meet - Conversations

Guarding Your Thoughts

This is what I have been trying to do even more so after reading the book. I am going to commit more verses to memory that will help with guarding my thoughts. There are so many Scripture verses in the book that is good for that. I am writing them down to go through and learn. The book was convicting. I was convicted even more about my conduct and habits that I have as a young unmarried woman that need to be worked on. I was convicted about quiet disobedience. I didn't recognize it as disobedience at first. I couldn't understand why my Dad would say that I was at times. I saw through this book that I had been in some ways just that. Not that I have been wicked in the sense of being a worldly person and living a worldly lifestyle but it was just in the small things. How I am now is going to carry over into marriage if I ever do have that privilege and so now is the time for me to work on the things I need to by asking and praying for the Lord to change me but of course with a willing heart to change otherwise it wouldn't work. It's  like banging  against a brick wall and there's not a budge at all if there wasn't a willing heart. I have watched young women I know get married and have problems because they didn't take care of the things they needed to before they married. I for one do not want to be like that! Sorry, I want to become Miss Right for when Mr. Right comes along. I want to be what I need to be for whoever He is. And what if I end up  marrying a preacher then what good would I be if I didn't work on the things that I need to??? I'd be a bad example to other young women and older ladies alike. I'd be a poor excuse of a christian. And I do not want that. I do not want to be a hinderance to anyone. The book also, was encouraging and I definitely learned somethings. I think there was only one thing I disagreed on and that's it. I do highly encourage other young ladies and married ladies to read,"Preparing To Be A Help Meet."


  1. Praise the Lord for other young women who are concerned with this as well! We do need to be learning skills and things while yet unmarried but the most important thing we can be doing is drawing nearer to the Lord!
    And one of the things I need to work on myself is obedience...doing what I'm told when I'm told! When I marry [Lord willing] I want to be completely ready for everything that's thrown on me as being my husband's helpmeet!
    Thanks so much for sharing! :)
    In Christ,
