Behind The Name
“For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.” Ephesians 5:22-28
Marriage nowadays seems to be a one person show. People desire true love, true companionship, but at the sacrifice of nothing. Me, I believe it is a three way partnership: God, my husband and myself. Above are some of my favorite verses from the Bible. So often they are twisted to represent the world’s view, showing how Christian men just want to rule over their wives without question. I see it as an instruction tool for my marriage; I submit my authority to my husband and he surrenders his life for me.
The meaning behind my blog’s name is to show the world just how joyful, “normal”, opinionated, and excited for life a woman can be when she has a husband who loves her like Christ loves His church.
