Marriage Miracle

January 17, 2012

From my vantage point as a pastor, I believe that one of the most difficult tasks a Christian wife struggles with is submission to her husband (likewise, husbands struggle to love their wives as Christ loved the church). Submission doesn’t come naturally; in fact, I believe the fallen principle within a wife drives her to battle for control. She might not verbally resist but she still might act in ways that are contrary to a husband’s leadership. Here’s the story of one wife who was able to finally see her nonsubmissive behavior.

    There’s not nearly enough pre-marital counseling or post-marital mentoring happening for either marriage partner–and even WITH counseling, this is a tough thing to learn to recognize in oneself. The lines get blurred between being a suitable helpmeet for our husbands and a nurturer, teacher, character-builder for our children–then throw in the effects of the curse and our desire to control our husbands and our gift for manipulation, and we have a recipe for destruction. May God grant us open eyes and tender hearts~

    I couldn’t agree more. There isn’t an easy answer. It’s hard to detect in one’s own life, and then a faulty husband makes it easy to keep pressing in the wrong direction.

    Our expectations are huge contributors to the situation, as well. None of us truly expect the difficulties we find ourselves in; rather, we somehow think we’re going to evade them–no matter how well-warned we are. We’re just arrogant that way.
