So in mid November I stood the test of submission to my husband and to my amazing surprise I don’t think I passed it at all. However I can say that he didn’t either.
Understanding what submission in marriage means also learning about what both the husband and wife must do to make it work. I admit to my wrong doing. I didn’t put the faith in my husband to believe that his decision was right but he didn’t consult me either on my feelings concerning the issue either. So we both failed the test. And yes it did create arguments and yes I did cry (I am a big crier, I cry for everything thats just how I am) Finally though we did come to a great compromise and we both saw each other point of view. Yesterday however on our anniversary I decided maybe I should talk to him again. The last thing I want is for him to not believe that I have put all my trust in him. He would breathe his last breath of air in me so I can live so he must know that I trust and honor all his decisions as the head of our house.
In closing I want to share a bible verse.
22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— 30for we are members of his body. 31“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 32This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
