Letting our husband lead & putting our prideful know it all attitude aside


“Trust me, it’s now or never,” said my husband.

Anyone else a strong willed woman reading this? I am. Many times it can get me in trouble when it comes to letting my husband lead.

Woman’s intuition!  I preach at him. Disregarding his role as the leader, a position given by our Lord God. Woman’s intuition is such a beautiful thing to have BUT we must know when to put it away. That’s not to say we can’t voice our concerns. But there are times we must put it outside and let our husbands develope their own. Yes, even if it all feels wrong.

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

“I think I’m the one God speaks to more to be honest. I’m the pessimistic in our relationship. I’m the realistic one. So therefore I MUST be right.”

What an awful prideful thing to say. I hardly have ever been wrong but in major life decisions I always let the hubby take lead, but this time I’m struggling.

1 Corinthians 11:3 but I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God

Ladies guess what? The Lord leads your husband’s too! *Gasp*, I KNOW!

Many times I forget that the Lord sees the prideful from a far and as a woman who tend to be boisterous I can many times let my pride of being correct get the best of me, leaving God looking at me from a distance. Anyone yet? No, just me? *Clears throat*…

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant

My husband is the leader, I’m the helper, he presents an idea and as we pray, I already made up my mind as to what we need to do. So I catch myself and I ask God to forgive  my unwillingness to follow my husband’s lead. EVEN if sometimes it’s making no sense, atleast to me.

I love him best when I’m in Sync with God and God says to follow my husband. So. Hard.

I can’t help but wonder what Noah’s wife said when he came and told her that he needed to build this huge ark. Hmmmm. Lord knows if that would have been me, it probably wouldn’t of gone well.  Reason said, ” don’t build it, there’s no rain.” But Noah still did his thing. Thankful his wife wasn’t me. Not that God’s plans would be stopped by an untrustworthy wife … But it slows down his plans a bit. His plans prevail.

So here I am, wondering HOW were going to make this work out.. how hard it is to blindly follow my husband in to the unknown. How I must trust, and let go of my prideful ways and let him lead. Even if it could fail miserably. Worst case scenario , we all learn a lesson. 

What exactly am I even talking about? Moving y’all. Though we have to wait for our home to sell, we’re planning and praying. Praying and planning. But it looks like we might (90% sure) be relocating our family. To the unknown.

Here’s to trusting his lead. The unknown. Putting my know it all attitude away, my pride and let him lead.

      1. Egalitarianism stems from God’s Word. It’s an understanding that Complementarianism comes from Patriarchy originating in 1st Century Ancient Near East/Mediterranean cultures where men and women had different roles and the roles were unequal. Egalitarianism isn’t bound to that time and place, but the realization of God’s living word evolving and moving into a modern society.
