Sometimes Submitting Sucks

After nine years of marriage, I think I’m experiencing an actual season of submission to my husband.

We disagree on a couple of big issues right now.

I don’t have peace, and neither does he.

We are both praying for the same thing, and unfortunately, the answer is wait. Which is what he’s telling me to do as well.

But I want justice. I want God to move swiftly. And I know in my heart of hearts that God rarely moves in the way I think is correct. So while I pray for Him to bend my will to His, even though I’m telling Him what I wish He would do (since He knows anyway), I am also submitting to Justin’s wishes that I wait.

Sometimes submitting sucks.

But I know that God will bless it. So if for nothing else, I’m sticking it out for that.


Ephesians 5:22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
