One area of being a help meet is submission, so let's address that one first shall we? By God's grace I am growing in this area daily but I still have so far to go. I am learning one day and one step at a time and I have to remember that being his help meet is not just keeping my mouth closed when I happen to disagree with something but it is a matter of my heart. If I am grumbling in my heart, I am not truly being submissive to him, which means I am not submitting to my Lord, Ephesians 5:22 "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (also Col 3:18). Ladies, the Bible tells us many times that we are to submit to our husbands and if God saw fit to repeat Himself, I think we should take heed and listen. One dictionary I have defines submit as this: to give over or leave for the judgment or approval of someone else; to yield to power or authority, surrender. I believe we may lovingly share our opinions with our husband but then we must leave the final approval or judgment to him. We are called to submit to our husbands but our husbands are to submit to the Lord. It is not up to us to decide if they are following the Lord's leading, it is only up to us to follow our husbands leading. One day we will have to stand before the Lord and give an account of how well we submitted to our husbands, I pray I can give a good account. There are many areas this applies to and next time I will dive deeper into specific areas. I will let you ponder and share about this for now.
