My husband is the head of our relationship I am his helper. (Tweet This)
I am not less nor is he more and we both are equal to God in worth.
My husband accepts that providing for our spiritual, physical, financial and emotional well being is his God given responsibility. Therefore he could not with good conscience forsake any of these responsibilities.
Just as he was given distinct roles, so was I.
We both have distinct God ordained responsibilities within our family unit.
To not fulfill them would be for us, to disobey God.
We have enjoyed 11 years of marriage and the best of the years came after we both embraced Gods plan for the family.
I have lived outside of Gods will for my marriage and inside of it. Therefore, when I admonish couples to follow Gods Biblical outline for marriage it’s because I’ve lived the life of both spouses trying to lead the family. Not only have I lived it but I’ve counseled women who refused to trust God on this issue and it cost them their marriages.
The sad part is the regret they harbor as they think about how much they loved their spouse and how small an issue submission really is in the grand scheme of things.
It’s a step of faith which requires courage but it’s a step that can take your marriage to a deeper level love and commitment to one another.
If you are struggling with this issue I’d like to prayer for you. Leave your prayer request and/or your name on the comment section.
