We have a special treat for your weekend reading and listening pleasure. A double post about the hot topic of submission and “What men wish women knew” and “What women wish men knew”. Enjoy. When a woman submits to her husband, she is actually submitting to God! God set the man as leader and a woman can trust that God is good. She also knows that nothing escapes God’s notice and a wicked man will be held accountable for his actions. Did you know that God cares about women so much that if a husband doesn’t treat her right his prayers will not be answered!
I’ll prove it to you:
1 Peter 3:7 “Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.” So God has you covered ladies! However, a submissive wife is not relegated to idly sitting by while her husband makes all the family decisions. In a healthy marriage, husband and wife work as a team. When a decision cannot be jointly agreed upon, the leader makes it, knowing he is responsible foremost unto God for that decision. He is commanded as leader to make good decisions for the family.
The Healthy Submissive
The healthy submissive is capable of, and thrives on, intense, intimate, emotionally open relationships. This is often evident in the number of nourishing, sustaining, and life affirming friendships she makes over the years.
|The healthy submissive is a giver. She often needs help to ration herself because her impulses nearly always lead her to want to do good for others.
Ever wonder what’s on the minds of single and married Christian men and women today?
I’m excited to bring to you, “The Chat”, a Christian show that features open, honest dialogue from a Christian perspective. Find out what men think, and what they wish women knew. What sends single men running in the other direction, what attracts him to you, how can we build better relationships.
Learn about everything from submission to leadership in the home. I thought the posts complement one another and should go together. Of course not to be outdone “What women wished men knew”. It’s both for couples and singles alike, you are sure to enjoy, “What men wished women knew”. My advice to ladies is really listen in on what the men have to say and then make mental adjustments accordingly. In order to make changes we have to first understand.
On a personal note!
SCW wants to lift up a fellow believer, Kirk and his family in prayer! We understand that you don’t know him, but he is richly loved by us. He’s battling a serious illness, and if any of you have family members or friends that have gone through this you know how tough it can be on the entire family. So as a connected family of believers we ask that you pray for him as we do for you. May God bless your hearts.
