The #Woman in #Marriage - #WiseWoman

Welcome to the continuation of The Woman in Marriage series.

Series four is titled - The Wise Woman



About a month ago, I mentioned in series one that I was invited to speak to a group of married women about - The Woman in Marriage - during their Mother's Day Symposium.


To read the first post on The Forgiving Woman, click here & the second post on The Praying Woman, click here & for the third post on The Virtuous Woman, click hereToday, I'm going to share some truths about The Wise Woman in marriage.


4. The Wise Woman – Queen Esther – The Book of Esther

“The wise woman builds her house but the foolish woman pulls it down with her hands.” Prov 14:1.

(i) The woman in marriage builds her home with love (cement) peace (bricks) joy (sand) and understanding (water).
(ii) She knows when to speak to her husband and when to hold her peace. A wise woman speaks wholesome words because a wholesome tongue is a tree of life, while vile words breaks the spirit. And out of the lips of a wise woman comes out a soft answer which turns away wrath. Prov 15:1.

(iii) A wise woman fears God and departs from evil (Prov 14:16) because she knows that a woman who fears the Lord, shall be praised. Prov 31:30b.

(iv) A wise woman has a merry heart. “He who has a merry heart has a continual feast (Prov 15:15b). She smiles, she is always cheerful and has a positive outlook on life.

(v) A wise woman respects her husband at all times even when she is hurt or angry.

Queen Esther

Esther was a Godly woman in the foreign land of Shushan. She was an orphan raised by Mordecai, her cousin. Her ancestors were taken as captives from Israel. Esther was a woman full of wisdom.

An orphan and a foreigner eventually married the powerful and influential King Ahasuerus who ruled  127 provinces from India (Asia) to Ethiopia (Africa).

In everything, Esther sought the face of the Lord. When her nation, Israel was under threat of extinction by the self-seeking Haman, she listened to Mordecai’s wise counsel.

Mordecai asked Esther to go into the King, her husband. Esther told Mordecai; “I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.” Esther 4:16b. She told Mordecai to ask the entire Jewish people to fast for her for 3 days. She knew the power of God to save.

(vi) A wise woman knows the power of God to save.

On the third day, she went into her husband, King Ahasuerus. Queen Esther risked her life. But the king put out the scepter (If he hadn’t, she would have  been put to death). The king told Esther to ask for anything up to half his kingdom.
 
Through Queen Esther’s wisdom and courage, the nation of Israel was saved and the enemy destroyed.

In contrast to Queen Esther, I want to share the story of an unwise Queen with you.

The Unwise Woman (Queen Vashti) - Esther 1

Queen Vashti was the dethroned wife of King Ahasuerus before Esther took her place. Vashti lost her exalted place at her husband's side, because she single-handedly pulled down her own house with her own hands.
Photo is courtesy of Googlesearch
The king sent for her to appear before him on the last day of the feast he held for the princes, nobles and the people throughout the provinces. He asked for her to wear her royal crown. The king's intention was to show off Queen Vashti's beauty.  

But she refused to appear before the king. Queen Vashti humiliated her husband, his authority and the people.

For her foolishness, Queen Vashti was stripped of her position and she never appeared before the king again. Her place was taken by a more worthy woman, Esther.

Dear women, the power is in your hands. By your words and actions, you have the choice to strengthen or tear down your home. 
 
Be very clear about this; The woman in marriage has the power to build or destroy her home.
 

The series continues next week with The Submissive Woman. Thank you for visiting.

The #Woman in Marriage - #Virtuous Woman

Welcome to the continuation of The Woman in Marriage.

Series three is titled - The Virtuous Woman


I mentioned in series one that I was invited to speak to a group of married women about - The Woman in Marriage - during their Mother's Day Symposium.


To read the first post on The Forgiving Woman, click here & the second post on The Praying Woman, click hereToday, I'm going to share some truths about The Virtuous Woman in marriage.


3. The Virtuous Woman

Ruth, the Moabite woman was a virtuous woman -Prov 31 & Book of Ruth

“Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.” Prov 31:10.
When a man marries a woman, he expects her total loyalty, dedication and love to their union. He expects his wife to behave in a certain way, becoming of a respectable married woman. The society's expectation is no different.

The attributes of a virtuous woman includes the following;

(i). A virtuous woman is upright:
She does her husband good and not evil all the days of his life. She would not plot to deceive him, or do anything to harm him. Her husband's heart safely dwells with her.

(ii). She willingly works with her hands:
She is not idle or lazy. A virtuous woman does not engage in gossip or bear tales. She is too busy engaging in profitable business for the benefit of her family.

(iii). She is honourable with good morals:
She is not adulterous. flirting with other men is not her way of gaining her husband's attention. And engaging in illicit affairs can not be named as part of her character.

(iv). She is generous to the poor and the needy:
Oh, she does not shut her ears and heart to those who need help around her. If she can't provide help, she will direct them to where they can find help or pray for help to come their way.
(v). She wears fine clothes and dresses her household in beautiful attire:
Everywhere she goes, she looks good and her husband, children and maid always appear well-cared for. Her household is kept warm in winter. It doesn't depend on whether or not her husband is wealthy. She is creative about making sure her family is well-dressed, not necessarily geared in designer outfits. 
  

(vi). She will not put him down outside or inside. She keeps the home clean and tidy, because she knows cleanliness is next to godliness.

(vii). She speaks kind words. On her tongue is the law of kindness.
(viii). She has reward because her children rise up and call her blessed and her husband praises her.
RUTH was a childless widow and a foreigner (a Moabite) in Bethlehem of Judah. She had returned from Moab with Naomi, her mother-in-law. Ruth worked with her hands, by going to glean wheat alongside reapers in the fields to bring home food for her mother-in-law. She was strong and honourable.

One day, her mother-in-law said to Ruth, wash thyself, anoint thyself, wear your best garment and go to Boaz, a wealthy man from Elimelech’s (Naomi’s husband) family. Naomi said, don’t make yourself known to Boaz until he had finished eating and drinking.

Later on, Ruth married Boaz, took in and gave birth to a son, named Obed, the grandfather of King David.

A childless widow and a foreigner became part of the royal lineage of Jesus Christ.

The woman in marriage knows when to ask her husband for favours. She washes herself, anoints herself with perfume, wears appealing clothes and approaches when he is merry.

The Godly woman knows that sex is wholesome and holy in marriage. She knows how to please her husband sexually and how to be alluring in a graceful and loving way, better than the prostitutes and the strange women. If she does not know how to please her husband, she asks God for help and guidance. God is her Teacher because HE is the Creator.

Book Showcase: Royal Cowries #Historical #African #Romance #NewRelease is out

Welcome to a special edition of Book Showcase!

It gives me great pleasure to announce the release of Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) and to invite you to celebrate this new milestone with me on the release tour.

Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel

In the land of Igodomigodo in 1470, a man's word was law.
But in the hands of a wild
maiden, Uvbi, lies the future, where women might have a say. When her freedom is endangered, Uvbi issues a threat to Nagudia before she disappears.

Nagudia, a renowned bronze caster conceals his past to gain freedom, but when he hears a scream in the bush, he takes action and his destiny becomes intertwined with Uvbi's. Are their lives destined together or will the journey to come uncover truths that will throw them apart?

'A new name?' Ubvi's eyes widened. 'What name change do you refer to?'
'I can't say anymore on that subject for now.' Nagudia sealed his lips with two fingers, drawing her gaze to his long, strong hands.
Uvbi nodded in understanding. 'Going back to our conversation, I must warn you. My ways are littered with demands. You might become weary of them as time unfolds.'
He puffed. 'You insult me when you imply I might not live up to your expectations.'
A grin worked its way to her lips. 'I sincerely apologize, great warrior.'
Nagudia strode back and forth. 'Go on then, let your worries, and demands be heard. We shall see if I can live with them. Can any demand be more tasking than the ones you dumped on me in the past, I wonder? Did I not meet them in a timely manner?'
Uvbi liked the glowing fire in her chest and she sighed in harmony with the rustling leaves.
He stepped too close. Nagudia smelled of rain and freshly cut grass.
Hot air blasted through his skin straight into her body. A wild tremor passed from her head to her feet. Uvbi pressed her wet body into his, and he held her for a long time.
He pressed his cheeks against her hair and inhaled deeply. When his calloused palms stilled the movement on her back, she lifted her head.
His eyes stayed hooded but his arms tightened around her waist. 
Time stood still.
His heart beat grew louder, and faster.
Her heart leaped.
The trees whistled and cheered.
In the ensuing silence, her body drew strength from his solid chest wall, and tense belly. With her heart hammering to the unspoken words in his eyes, Uvbi stepped out of reach.
 

 


This is me, Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
I love writing romance novels that are as intriguing and flirty as they are entertaining. Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are a wide range of toe-curling, skin-tingling romance books with compelling characters who have heart and soul.

The stories are dotted with unexpected twists and turns and conflict and are set in fascinating Africa, enticing Europe and America. The witty dialogue between the characters keeps you thoroughly entertained.

If you want to cuddle up and relax, grab a copy, travel with the characters and sail away to Pleasure Island. They cure boredom and relieve stress!

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel. My first contemporary romance novel; LOITERING SHADOWS was published in May 2010. Other Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, the National Novel Writing Month 2010 winning novel, THE GARDENER’s ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN, the spicy hot HUSBAND to RENT, Stolen Valentine Kiss (Holiday Series #1) and Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2). 

At the moment, I’m working on my four romance novels. My job is taking care of my gorgeous, life-size hero of a husband and two vibrant and loving ‘near teenagers’.  In my spare time, I love to read romance novels, swim and watch TV shows.
