Do you want to know the "will of God" for your life? Have you spent time in His Word getting to know Him? Have you read His Love Letter to you? Do you still walk around as if God doesn't care about "little ole' you"? Do you think that God doesn't "talk to you the way He talks to others"? Dig into the Bible, His Word is ALIVE, He still talks to us today in 2012 in His Word and it's PACKED FULL of GOOD STUFF!!! (John 6:51)
"Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence..."? Jeremiah 5:22

"TREMBLE YE WOMEN THAT ARE AT EASE; be toubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins." Isaiah 32:11
Too many churches today are preaching what we "want to hear" to make us feel good about ourselves and not enough are telling us to be "poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word." Isaiah 66:2
"There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy..." James 4:12
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28
What do you think God's will is for each of our lives?.... To fear Him!!!!!!
If you fear God, He will fill you with His wisdom to live the rest of your life in His will, but first you must fear Him.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom" Psalm 111:10
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom" Proverbs 9:10
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge" Proverbs 1:7
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed." James 1:5&6
You see, fear of God, must first be in place in your life, for Him to give you His wisdom concerning His will for you.
I know you don't want to hear this...again, but if you are a married woman, the number 1 thing on the list of God's will for your life (under loving God) is being your husband's help meet. (1 Corinthians 11:8-9; Genesis 2:18) Ask your husband what this looks like for him. It may look completly different for both of you, but you can't help meet your sweetie's needs if you don't ask him what they are. When he does finally trust you enough to tell you, please don't jump in defense with your words or actions. Take some time to think about what he said and ask God to help you meet your husband's needs. Before you talk to your hubby about it, ask God to soften your heart to hear your husband out and help you carry out the task before you. Your husband may have a huge burden he's been carrying around for awhile and now that you've asked, he may share. It may seem too big for you to carry out on your own, but don't worry, with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26) If you fear God, He will fill you with His wisdom when you ask Him, (James 1:5&6) to help you, help your husband.
Once you have these few things in your life:
1. Fear God (includes repenting of your sins! Mark 1:15; Luke 12:5)
2. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength (Matthew 22:37-38)
3. Love your neighbor AS YOURSELF (This includes your husband, children, fatherless, widow, poor, needy and those who have wronged you -Matthew 22:39; James 1:27; Luke 6:35)
you will feel SO FREE!!!! You will feel as if a huge burden has been lifted off your shoulders when you trust and obey God. Then you will be "in His will" and enjoy His blessings. (Deuteronomy 28:1-14)
I double dog dare you...
