The honeymoon is over and real life begins. You have to actually be a wife. I’m not talking about sexing the man to death, really he can get that anywhere. I’m not talking about cooking the best fried chicken and greens either. Both of those items are necessary for the survival of the marriage but the reason he chose YOU to be his wife is not because of those things. His wife should be a person who loves him, as is, no warranty, black black no trade back. If he never changes, if he never makes more money or has more drive and ambition you love him. He is expecting you to understand what he can’t say, be there for him no matter what. It sounds like a lot, almost unreasonable but there it is, the truth.
Wives, be willing to serve your husbands the same as the Lord. A husband is the head of his wife, just as Christ is the head of the church. Christ is the Savior of the church, which is his body. (Ephesians 5:22, 23 ERV)
Marriage is work, it means sometimes you have to be quiet and let that man be “The Man”. You have to allow him to make the decision and support it, do whatever you can to make his dream a reality. Get on board ladies, it’s time for us to take our rightful place in the marriage. We are called to be a helpmeet, not the director but the assistant to the director. Pray for that man, trust that God is God Enough for him. Trust that the God who you formed a covenant with knows what you are in need of, He also knows what your man needs to lead your family. Trust the process’!
