    A brawling woman is not a Godly woman. The man and the woman must yield to the leading of the Holy Ghost just as the bride of Christ (the chuch) to Him that your prayers be not hindered. Check out 1 Peter 3

    I'm shocked and sadden. Are these Christians responding here. You talk only about the nagging wife.-But there is a root to this fruit. "Why?" She is responding to something wrong.

    In life there are so many enemies of destiny and talking about our plans most times gives them the edge to manipulate. It is better to talk your plans over to God than man. He will give you better direction. So, thank God for this word that came to me today as a reminder that I should talk less about my plans and depend on God to help achieve my plans. Also, I don t need to have an opinion in every matter that is brought around me. Sometimes, people capitalize on the word you say and use it against you. I have been in so many situations to know that most times having no opinion is better than be a smart aleck . So yes, He who keeps his mouth and tongue, keeps his soul from trouble.
