Wives for Eternity

My husband isn’t much into Internet stuff and blogging but if he were to read me writing on “wives for eternity” he might laugh! No, he probably wouldn’t, but I am the first to admit that I am not a perfect wife. I do try very hard and I pray a lot about this area though. I want so much to be “a wife of noble character who is worth far more than rubies” as the book of proverbs says.
So, I have done much studying on how to be a good wife. A wife who is loving and very respectful. I fall in this area so many times but by the grace of God he keeps working on me.One of the things I’ve always known but I’ve been learning more about is God’s desire for the man to be the head of the home and to lead. Everyone knows that a well functioning business or anything needs 1 leader and someone to follow. If you have too many “cooks in the kitchen” things don’t go well. Woman struggle in this area alot I think. Most of us want our husbands to lead and make all the hard decisions but we have a hard time letting him. We like to take over when we think he’s not doing a good enough job. Well, I’ve been learning that like it or not, he’s suppose to be the leader because God gave him specific gifts for that job. Men are generally better at keeping their emotions out of things and making logical decisions and They’re protectors and providers by nature. they’re usually independent, able to focus on their task, they’re strong, courageous and often assertive…making them perfect for the leadership role.

We need to submit to this God ordained plan ladies! This doesn’t mean that we become door mats, running to our husbands every beckon call, but it does mean that we need to be mindful that he’s the head of the home and pray for him, daily, to be the man God has called him to be…a man who submits to and obeys God…because then its easy to follow!

There is a lot more to say on this subject but for now, I want to just say “follow your husband and most of all follow the Lord”
