To the Wives Who Have a Hard Time With “Submission”—This Is What the Bible Really Says…

So, understand that the Biblical model holds both parties accountable and calls both men and women to lay down their pride, to yield to our own desires to do whatever feels good or easy, and to humbly give our very best for the sake of victory/a successful relationship and to glorify God. Isn’t that the only way to win–to be a team player and trust the Coach?

Whether or not you realize it, you have probably already submitted to your man in some ways if your relationship is at all healthy. Have you ever compromised or given up doing what you wanted to do so that you could love him well and do what he wants to do? That’s submitting. That’s submitting your own selfishness to be sacrificial and love well. And I’m sure he’s laid down his pride at times to honor and love you, too. See how this is necessary for it to work?

This is not about getting walked all over nor is it about whether or not you have a successful career or admirable accomplishments of your own. This is about something deeper–about giving your best. Anytime you give your best, you’re sacrificing your selfishness and submitting what you have–and that’s not something to be afraid of nor does it rid you of your strength.

It simply strengthens the team. <3

“Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her…holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.” [Ephesians 5:21-33]

She is passionate about seeing women set free by the love of Christ and works to bring them to that through sharing real, raw, and relatable stories and anecdotes with a creative spin. She launched her site in 2015 on a simple premise — to get real, to sort through the lies women believe, and to encourage readers in Truth while offering touches of comic relief along the way. She especially loves to keep it real by speaking openly into real-life struggles and offer encouragement through storytelling because she believes that our stories are the most unifying thing we have. The messy, broken, and imperfect parts of life are the threads that weave us together, reminding us that we are truly not alone. She understands the reality that we all have imperfections, brokenness, and pieces of our lives we’d rather not show. She recently published her first book, WholeheARTed: A Coloring Book Devotional, released this past spring. It is available for purchase via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Lifeway, and more. When she isn’t writing, you can find her with a coffee in hand as she dives into the Word, jogging through town, and traveling the globe with her husband. You can get to know her more on Facebook, Twitter,or Instagram.
