Submission

HOW I LEARNED TO SUBMIT TO MY HUSBAND by LUCY MBIZI
When l first learnt about submission, l dismissed it as l thought it wasn’t meant for me. l didn’t get to understand the topic in the first years of my marriage. l was one of those wives who was so independent and would make impromptu decisions on my own without involving my husband. It was only after l received the revelation on submission that l discovered how l deprived my husband the role that God has bestowed upon him being the head of the family and the leader. It didn’t come easy for me especially where l was expected to[...]
SUBMISSION, DISCIPLINE, OBEDIENCE, AND TANTRUMS IN THE GROCERY STORE
Trolley pushing isle by isle, picking grocery items from your list in the supermarket, your five year old daughter excitedly points and exclaims, “Mommy, mommy!” Please may I have that toy?!. “No darling, a toy is not on our list today,” you reply firmly. In the blink of an eye your ears and everyone else’s in your vicinity are ringing as your daughter launches into a full-on tantrum, kicking and screaming on the floor in disobedient rebellion as she did not get her way and all the “judgmental” shoppers eyes are on YOU. Many of us can identify with this[...]
Submission: What If My Husband Is Not A Believer? Should I Still Submit?
As a wife, if your husband is a non-believer, it is no reason to act in any rebellious way because you are frustrated that they don’t come to the Lord by you telling them to.

The Bible tells us that we must submit to our husbands whether they are believers or not. Your conduct as a believing[...]
Strong Is Not Wrong, Independence Is The Problem
There is a clear distinction between being a strong woman and wanting to be independent. Being strong is encouraged by the word of God. Proverbs 31:17 NIV [17] She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. Being independent is encouraged by the world. I remember desperately trying to hold onto my independence as a strong woman when we first got married, feeling overwhelmed to not “lose” myself completely in marriage and let a “man” tell me what to do and run my life. The word independence is defined as being self-reliant, self-dependent, self-sufficient, all good[...]
Strong Is Not Wrong, Being A Wife Who Is Not Submitted To Her Husband Is
I am excited to have written this post with my husband. He is sold out to Jesus too and we share a passion for marriages centered around Him! When we write together will use identity “Loved Wife, Respected Husband” Here is our first post together. 1. Being strong is not wrong. Proverbs 31:17 NIV She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. Proverbs 31:25 NIV She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 2. Not being submitted to your husband is wrong. The Bible is very clear; Ephesians[...]
