Let's talk about Submission



" Likewise you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; while they behold you chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of appearl; but let it be hte hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even in the oranment of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of Ahlahayam of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also who trusted in Ahlahayam adorned themselves being in subjection to their own husbands. Even Sarah obeyed Abaraham calling him lord, whose daughters you ar as long as you do well and are not afraid with any amazement. Likewise you husbands dwell with them according to knowledge, give honour to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the graceof life, that your prayers be not hindered. Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous, not rendering evil for evil or railing for railing, but contrairwise blessing; know that you are thereunto called, that you should inherit a blessing." 1 Peter 3:1-9




I know that was a lot of Bible reading, but in today's culture, Sis...YOU NEED IT! 


Submission is something that almost every other woman I know in this walk likes to run from. They feel that they shouldn't HAVE to submit to their husbands. They want to have the same treatment as far as authority, but want to have only the perks (i.e. a nice home, money in the bank, luxurious lifestyle etc). So let me ask you something...how are you supoosed to get those things, yet you don't want to submit? Go ahead...I'll wait. 


Can a woman have her own money and a career? Yes. Can a woman be a housewife and live a great lifestyle? Also yes. A woman can be wife and have all those things. But before you can, you have to submit to the man that his supposed to be your husband. You have to come to a mutual understanding about the lifestyle you're BOTH going to live and the standards that you will have for each other. If you're in this Word and trying to live up to the standards of the Most High...this is literally the blueprint that he's laid out for the BOTH of you. 


Today's culture will have you in a world of hurt real quick. There are all these social media posts about how women don't need a man or can be fine by themselves. Notice how the people posting about such things are miserable and single themselves. Don't let the fake confidence fool you. If you want to have a marriage that is not only sustaining, you have to follow what the Most High says, not the world and definetely not social media. 


Coming from a personal standpoint, I'm not gonna lie...submission is hard! I have my days where I don't want to hear ANYTHING that my husband has to say. I feel like he isn't getting it and that he can just go somewhere and leave me alone. And the days that my mindset is like that, those are the days that marriage is tough and we're having issues. Not taking all the blame on myself, but after 10 years together and almost 7 years married, I'm coming to understand that if I get out of my own way, the good days are more often and the bad days are few and far in between.  If I want my prayers to the Most High to be heard, I have to also get out of my own way and LISTEN. When you do that, things (meaning marital problems, life issues) are also a little easier to navigate. 


I hope this post gives you something to think about today Sis. Submission isn't a bad thing. It doesn't have to be hard, and it definetly has it's beneftis when understood in the correct context. Have a great day Sis!
