REJOICE IN GOD Find your joy in the Lord, and in who He has made you to be. You should not look to anyone else to make you happy. He will perfect those things concerning you (see Ps. 138:8).
Allow the presence of the Lord Jesus to envelope you. It is His presence that will enable you to do all things and be an overcomer in every circumstance. Cherish the opportunities you have for your life to be a beautiful testimony of the transforming power of Christ. Thank God for the gift of life's circumstances and His assurance of victory.
May God help you become a woman of wisdom. And may you come to appreciate the fact that your beauty is defined most importantly by your attitude and spirit. I pray that the Father will enable you to see the real power in the roles you fulfill as a woman, a wife and a homemaker, but above all as a vessel of honor created by Him for an eternal destiny and purpose.
Even in a troubled marriage relationship, your life can be a source of inspiration and strength to others. Ask God to allow you to see yourself, as Abigail did, through His eyes.
When you know your sufficiency is in Him, it is possible for you to maintain a quiet and serene spirit on the inside that will radiate peace and a certainty of victory on the outside.
