In my case I found myself hurt, bitter, frustrated and disappointed, praying daily for God to heal and fix my marriage. I finally realized that unless I surrendered to God first by halting my attempts to make my marriage "better" and submitted to God by picking up and putting on the role He designed for me to wear as a wife- I would continue to be in the way of Him being able to bring my husband into line and into his proper role as well.

So what is my role exactly as a wife? One issue I had for the longest time was with the word "submission" my belief was that women were somehow called to be inferior to their husbands and serve while being subjugated, used, and denied any identify or real purpose. Submission is a word that I honestly struggled with at first.

I thought it meant I was less than, that I was called to shove my identity, dreams, values and needs in a closet somewhere and become a slave to my husbands needs and desires. That by being commanded to submit, God saw me as less than equal to my husband. Despite the difficulty with this word, I continue to read hoping for better answers. I found that right away Tony Evans addresses the misunderstanding of submission, acknowledges the long term struggle for many with this word, and highlights the truth that women are in fact EQUAL to men and both are created with high value and purpose.

Recognizing equality, we then see the compassion of husband and wife to that of a head and a body- same value different roles and the fact that a home can no more thrive with 2 heads than an actual body could with 2 heads. Submission means to yield.

A wife is to look to their husband for direction as a body looks to it's head. While I know that all are called to submit to God, leaders are called to submit to other leaders, fellow Christians are called to submit to each other, I didn't know how to submit to my husband in the true meaning of yielding. Reading more, I discovered insight into how to yield to my husband through respect.

While I long, and recognize my need to be loved despite my flaws, I never realized that respect should be given the same way- regardless if he is fulfilling his role or not. The same way we are often called to honor and serve leaders who are not fulfilling the ideal. Tony then shares that by a wife submitting ultimately to God since it's God's design she is able to rest and gain strength and assurance that God will guide her into a changed relationship.

Next, he address the inner person of a wife, being concerned with who we are with God and our walk with Him, allowing ourselves to fully and passionately peruse God which also enables Him to work within us. Are you someone who God can compliment who you are inside? Good question to ask. This pursuit of God results in inner transformation and the favor of God on us- a great reward.

Tony, knowing that these principles will be difficult for us, shares that by allowing God's grace to flow through us, He will empower us to do what we could not do by our own strength- namely, show respect to our husbands if it's difficult and you are challenged with this like I am. This takes us to surrender, the concept that first acknowledges the fear we may have in submitting or yielding to our husbands, but promises that when we respect and submit, God responds by liberating us from our fears. It gives the realization that by submitting to our husband we are ultimately submitting to God's divine order for marriage and is honoring God.

All three principles containing a word that we women have often deeply misunderstood and greatly fought against.
