So I’ve been reflecting and gaining knowledge on what it means to submit from a woman’s standpoint.
Word of advice to men: if you tell a female “NO” and she then in turn tries to “twist your arm” and make you change your mind, then what you need to do is turn around and take off running! She is not able to respect your wishes nor respect you. Don’t end up having a female come singing to you: and you, and you, and you, you’re gonna love me!
(Ephesians 5:33) 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
(Proverbs 19:13) 13 A foolish son is the ruin of his father,
And the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping.
God is at work again. I’m in the process of starting and building an organization, only Lord knows what this will turn into. Take a look and if you want to get involved click on the contact link and fill out the form.
(Isaiah 58:12) 12 Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
I was reminded of this scripture:
(Proverbs 13:12) 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
We can wait and wait, and expect things to change or to occur in our life, but yet have to endure the work of patience. As we endure the work of patience we tend to grow weary because what we expect to happen has not happened. We lose hope, we lose faith, and we begin to doubt and give up on what could and would be.
Yet, we must also remember (Galatians 6:9)9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
Trust in the Lord and know that He does not forsake those who love Him. Hang on to Him, His Word, and know that He is true. Hold on. He will always come through for you. Trust and believe. He will make all things new! Just keep on honoring Him.
If you treat Him like He is your husband then He will bring you your husband/ wife.
5 For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
6 For the Lord has called you
Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Like a youthful wife when you were refused,”
Says your God.
It just dawned on me, when I hear of see people quote John 3:16 the only part that is quoted is “For God so loved the word that He gave His only begotten Son…..”. I realize because I hear or see that some much that is all I know. There is more to the scripture. Yes, we know that God loves us by giving His Son, but he didn’t give us His just because love us. He gave us His Son so that we would believe in Him THEN so we may HAVE everlasting life. God’s love is so much deeper than we may know and can comprehend. God gives us love, so just accept it. Next time you hear or see someone half-quote John 3:16 know that there is more to that scripture and remind them as well.
(John 3:16) 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
