At the Well – Standing for Your Marriage

The topic today is Standing for Your Marriage. Chelsey asked the following questions:

What does commitment in marriage mean? What kind of wife are we called to be to our husbands? What are ways that we can Biblically stand for our marriage?

I believe that commitment in marriage means — being there for each other even if you feel like not being there. Forgiving the other even if its not your fault. Serving the other even if you are tired. Encouraging your partner so he can be all that God has called him to be. Being gentle and loving with your partner even when you are tired. Commitment is not based on feelings or current situations. Commitment in marriage is a lifelong commitment. God abhors divorce.

We are called to be submissive wives. Our husbands are our leaders. We are to give them the respect and leadership role in our families. This is the original design that God intended for our marriages. It is through submission that we can show our husbands love and respect. We are also to be their helpmeet. We are to support them, encourage them and help them reach their God-given potentials.

We are to pray for our husbands. We are to show respect, even when no one else is looking. We are to support and serve our husbands.

    Post filled with TRUTH, and I love it. Your conclusion paragraph is where it’s at, in a posture of prayer for our husbands and for us to be all that we can be as wives in our marriages.

    May we all be strengthened in our commitment to the Lord and our husbands!

  3. These are some of the most valuable lessons I learned in my marriage! It’s not all about me or how I feel! It is giving when it is not easy or when we don’t feel like it. Beautifully written post. Thanks for sharing.

    I loved how you laid it all out there. Being there even if you don’t feel like it, or forgiving even if you don’t feel like it. Marriage is such a beautiful picture of our relationship with Christ. It’s not based on feelings but on faith.

  5. I loved what you said about committment: “being there for each other even if you feel like not being there”. Love IS a choice. Thanks for sharing with us today AT THE WELL. -Blessings, Laurie
