ICE Woman Can't Melt His Heart!

IN LIKE manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives, When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him—to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].”  (1Pet 3:1-2 AMP)

We women, even we high spirited women!, are commanded in Scripture to subordinate ourselves, be secondary to and dependent on our husbands, and adapt our lives to theirs, living godly lives in a pure and modest way, revering, respecting, deferring, honoring, esteeming, appreciating, prizing, and adoring him!  Admiring, praising, devoted to, deeply loving and enjoying him!  WHEW -- 

Remember, TWO HEADS make a MONSTER.  God has commanded that our husbands be the head of our home.    When I truly learned that re-modeling my husband was NOT my job, and started following God's commands to do what these scriptures command, my marriage took on incredible meaning, and depth of relationship!

We are to LET OUR HUSBANDS in and ALLOW them to meet our needs.  Remember an Independent Capable Efficient woman is just what the initials spell:  ICE woman!  And no man feels revered, respected, deferred to, honored, esteemed, appreciated, prized and adored by such a woman.

Challenge:  LET your husband meet some of your needs!  Appreciate him!  Adapt your life to his!  Revere, respect, defer to, honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and adore him! Admire, praise, devote yourself to, deeply love and ENJOY this guy!   And JUST MARVEL as the stars twinkle in BOTH of your eyes!
