Today’s devotional will be taking a new direction and I trust the Holy Spirit that the activity today will inspire a revolution in the lives of husbands and impact a healthy seal on their flocks-wife and children. As the head of my family, I can tell you sincerely that there is power in the things we write. They communicate our deepest thoughts to our flocks, and remind them that we appreciate their works in our lives. You may not be able to present a commendation plaque to your wife, but you can give her a written expression of yourself. So whether you are educated or not, I have prepared a letter from the word of God and encourage you to copy it. If you cannot read it out, just slip it into your wife’s purse or hand it over to her lovingly. One of the things you gain when you develop the attitude of writing to your wife is that it builds a base of reference for her, which keeps reminding her that you are always there for her. Now here is the letter.
My dear wife,
“Tell me , o thou whom……my soul loveth, where thou feedest
If thou know not, o thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds’ tents.
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies
Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse, thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse. I have gathered my myrrh with my spice, I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey, I have drunk my wine with my milk, eat o friends, drink yea. Drink abundantly o beloved
· Father, open my eyes to see the lies behind every suggestion and advice
· Father, empower me by Your Spirit to live a life well pleasing to You
· Father, plant my feet firmly in righteousness as I relate with my flock
I stand strong on God’s word to lead me in all things at all times, even as I lead my wife and children in godliness and righteousness as the head of the family in Jesus name. Amen.
