A submissive wife deserves a loving husband

Keeping it short and simple…my take is this:

Being submissive to her husband does not mean that a woman is weak, rather it means that she is a true child of her father (God).
This is because the command to be submissive is God’s, and not man’s.
Most women fear the word ‘submissiveness’ because they believe it is another word for being a “doormat”. This is as a result of some misconception of the word, and wrong teachings of some feminist. Again it could also be attributed to  some men’s treatment of women due to their(men) misunderstanding of what the word means as well.

If truly women have a clear understanding of what “it means for a woman to submit to her husband, then they would understand how easy it is, because they will know that, giving the position of man, starting from the time of creation, it is only natural for any woman to submit to the man in her life.

Having said that, if a woman must fulfill her own part of the command by God,  to be submissive, then the man MUST fulfil his, which is
“TO LOVE HIS WIFE JUST AS CHRIST LOVED HIS CHURCH AND GAVE HIS LIFE FOR IT. (Ephesians 5:22-25).
NB: A man that LOVES his wife WILL NEVER MISTREAT HER IN ANY WAY!

To be submissive is as simple as this:
LET YOUR MAN LEAD…LET HIM BE THE LEADER OF THE HOME.

Women are called “Helpmates”,  that means that the men are supposed to lead and then the women should help them.

Let him lead in everything…except the ones he assigns to you as his helpmate.

I SUPPORT FAIR TREATMENT…BUT NEVER GENDER EQUALITY
Woman was made out of a man, so how can they be equal????

We all have our places…let’s take them accordingly….

  1. But what if your husband is doing something thats causing him to neglect his responsibilities of running the home..being strict…letting things slide…its about video games and work all a sudden…but if i tell him no more video games im telling him what to do and i was told God dosent like that…and im sinning because i dont control this house my husband does…im so confused and lost…i cant sleep at night im always sad i cry all the time …ive talked to him about this but it does no good ….he sais he has to play video games to keep his mind off the death of his dad who died in 2016…but if i were always on video games when im not at work he would take them away from me in a heartbeat…and ive been mouthy and defiant and he threatns to discipline but never ever follows through ….i think i just want out of this lifestyle…we started it bc of my bipolar i get out of control and defiant and this drew us so much closer but the last few months with my husband its work then home then video game maby a movie or tv show….im so lost…..

  2. Hi Jaime,
    Sorry to read what you are going through in your marriage.
    Hope you feel better…

    A submissive wife isn’t the one who is neglected or abused. She is the one who respects her husband’s position as the head of the family.
    And my opinion (from my understanding of the Biblical teachings about the subject), is that IF A WOMAN MUST BE SUBMISSIVENESS ,then THE MAN MUST BE LOVING! THE TWO CANNOT BE SEPARATED.
    The woman’s duty is to respect and submit and that of a man, is to love. And remember, Love embodies a lot like respect, fairness, goodness, etc. So if your husband LOVES you, everything else comes with that.

    Having said that, it doesn’t mean that as a woman you cannot show your husband some love.You can only submit when you love.

    Everyone has the right to do the things that make them happy, (like playing video games 😊) But! When it becomes the cause of problems in a relationship such as yours, then it needs to be addressed constructively, and in Love.

    How have you been addressing the problems with your spouse? In anger or in love?
    What times do you choose to talk about the problems? When they are happening or after?( for instance, do you try to talk about your dislike of the amount of time he spends playing the game at the time he is playing or after?)
    Better discussed when both of you are all cuddled up and smiling 😊😊
    What is your manner of approach like? Furious or calm?

    Is it possible to consider the above points?

    Have you considered counseling? Is it something that you and your spouse will be happy to go for?
    Sometimes it takes hearing things from others to get us on the right track, you know.

    I wish you the best and above all, God’s Grace in your marriage and life.
