Wife after God is designed to walk you through a journey with god, that is tailored through the role of being a wife. I am going to go day by day and reflect on my relationship with god and my husband. I will not be summarizing days or writing the versus that correlate. But I will be journaling and using the refection questions to help me go through this next month.
In what instances has God invited you to do something, but you were too scared to follow through?
I don't have a instance I can think about off the top of my head, but I will say I feel like I sometimes let fear take over aspects of my life sometimes. I fear about anything and everything, I have points of high anxiety and have panic attacks. I need to remember there is the enemy who is trying to pull me down, I need to take this chapter to heart and have complete faith in God, and know that everything is ok and happens for a reason.
What things cause you fear?
Fear is a distressing emotion caused by the presence of danger, this is what it says in the chapter, and for me it is all about anxiety. I need to try and control everything to over compensate for the anxiety I have.
How does operating in fear affect your marriage?
I think it has a negative impact my marriage because my fear holds me back.
Day 16: Reverence For Christ
What do you think submission should look like in your marriage?
I didn't really ever think about this, but we should submit to each other in a respectful way. With this is does not mean I am a doormat as the wife. In a marriage this could be something as simple as letting your husband choose an activity for the day and doing it with him. Submission is a marriage can be shown in many different ways.
What is required to be able to submit to God or your husband?
I don't like the word submissive, I think is makes me look and feel weak. But now I can see, that it is the wordily view of submissive.
How will your marriage change as you submit more to God?
It is ultimately give you more trust and faith in your relationships. With this it gives him the control and we are able to let go.
