The longing of my heart is to be protected (safe). There’s something thrilling in experiencing a voluntary vulnerability, allowing myself to be touched, aware of my vulnerability yet choosing to trust. Being a true female, the way God created me to be. Touched and trusting. Warm and safe, with no guards.
Ultimately it is accepting with joy the love of Jesus. And in His love He made me a wife. Michael was given to me by God, yet Biblically I must say I was given to Michael. Abba presented me to Michael. To really enjoy the gift Jesus gave me that I might experience true rest and my femininity blossoming—the delight of this sweet safe trust is received when I receive God’s authority, and the man He chose to be authority over me in this life.
Thank you, Lord, for making me a woman. All the commands to walk with and abide in You, for me as a woman have become thrilling. This is TRUE FEMINISM.
Submission grants me the longing of my female heart, to be protected, because God is my loving, all wise Protector, King, Ruler and Husband.
Woman was presented to man and when she disobeyed her curse was to desire to master over her husband. It was a CURSE because it’s a painful struggle, yet yielding to the purpose for which I was created is fulfilling.
1 Peter 3:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
Always always it is about pleasing Him.
