by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – She Will Only Do Him Good
Editor’ note: What the hell is going on in Lori Alexander’s life that she’s spewing more and more about staying with a cheating spouse and deliberately misunderstanding who that Proverbs 31 wife was? I’ve not quoted the commentaries that she is using to justify staying with a lying cheating husband and only being a simpering sappy ‘Yes’ woman to your husband.
Would have liked to have gotten a screen cap of something Lori said last week on her Facebook page shaming people who do not keep their homes in good repair, equating it with sin, but I wasn’t quick enough before it was removed, or hidden. She actually shamed people who may have had good reasons why their homes aren’t perfect, like illness or poverty. She has no love or mercy for anyone.
Gill’s Commentary relates the Proverbs 31 woman to her relationship with Christ. Wives are commanded to submit themselves to their husbands as unto the Lord and marriage is a symbol of Christ to His Church (His bride) so it makes perfect sense and adds a deep spiritual component to the entire chapter; for without Christ we can do nothing. All of our works are filthy rags but with Christ, we are new creatures in Christ and are ordained for good works.
She is not led by her emotions and feelings or PMS. She knows the truth of God’s Word and has made the decision to live by it instead, because she truly believes that she can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens her and that the joy of the Lord is her strength. She trusts God to fulfill His promises to her and knows that His commands are not burdensome, as His Spirit works mightily within her.
For all of you who are married to unbelievers, this is your God-ordained way to live in front of your unbelieving and unfaithful husband. Instead of keeping your eyes on him and his sin, keep your eyes on things above, where Christ is seated and get busy learning of Him and His ways. Allow His Word to permeate and change your mind and thinking. This will, in turn, change your behavior.
