I remember when I first changed jobs and had to wait 30 days to be able to enjoy health insurance benefits! At the time, I was a mom of a 1-year-old, who just happened to be in the season of (unbalanced) climbing. It seemed like our couch grew 10 feet tall that month, with our tile floors posing as the catch-all safety net! As I am sure any mom can imagine, the “what if” medical emergencies played over in my head during that month. Oh, what peace of mind I had once my medical insurance kicked in! Climbing was no longer the end of the world, nor did it stress me out as much.
Those of us that are blessed with insurance have peace of mind. Of course, we do not want to ever have to use our coverage, but if we do- it is not the end of the world. We continuously choose to invest in insurance to protect our assets. But what about marriage? What are we doing for our relationship insurance?
This series we have been looking at the personality of the Proverbs 31 wife. If we were to use the same scenario as verse 21, what would your character look like in her situation?
I hope you are the one drinking hot chocolate! But there are many areas in our lives that we are the one scrambling. And although I would hate for you to scramble in any area, I pray it is not your marriage.
We all know the divorce rate is 50%. It can happen in your early years, or later years- divorce has no cut off deadline. So neither should your marital insurance. If you knew you had a 50% chance to lose any valuable asset, you would invest to insure and protect that asset.
You may not be able to foresee a stormy season in your marriage, but you can take proactive steps to ensure you have the healthiest relationship that you are capable of having so that when the storm hits, you are weathering it out on the foundation you have positively built vs. neglected.
Throughout this entire Proverbs 31 series, we have seen how we could be proactive as a wife. We have learned lessons that can truly shape our marriages. How we could be a wife worth more than rubies. (If you are just joining us for the first time in this series, and want to see areas that you could be more proactive in, check out our Mid-Series Wife Review.)
I do not know about you, but I want a marriage that my husband feels honored to have me as his wife. A marriage I feel strong in. One that I can rejoice in!
