My uncle David told me one time years ago, “ Bubs sometimes you have to sit down so he can stand up”.
.• submission •
This was after hearing me whine and complain that Brandon wasn’t being the leader I thought he ought to be, spiritual or otherwise. Ya see neither of us knew what we were doing when we signed up for this. We were living on love and big dreams and trying hard to do what was right and responsible. Learning to submit to my husband has taught me an awful lot about myself and How good the Lord is. He is strong in both of our weaknesses. He discerns our hearts, makes our paths straight and is the third cord in this marriage that binds us. There have been many times where I had to bite my tongue thinking I knew best... and many times I didn’t but thankfully the Lord redeems, restores and turns all things to good. Submitting to our husbands is much more about submitting and trusting in the Lord to work in you, Him, and the life you share. It’s a gift to us wives to watch our husbands walk in the role they were made for as the Lord calls them up and leads them as they lead our families.
