Strength Comes From Being Feminine

Feminism has it all wrong.  They think if they can become more like men and equal in every way, then they will be strong. Gabrielle Reece has it all right. Reece, who was OF COURSE introduced as a “mother, model and former pro beach volleyball star” in that order, explains in the book, “to truly be feminine means being soft, receptive and – look out, here it comes – submissive.”

She goes on to say, “I think the idea of living with a partner is ‘How can I make their life better?’ So if I’m the woman and he’s the man, then yes, that’s the dynamic. I’m willing, and I choose to serve my family and my husband because it creates a dynamic where he is then, in fact, acting more like a man and masculine and treating me the way I want to be treated … I think because women have the ability to set the tone, that the ultimate strength and showing real power, I believe, is creating that environment. I don’t think it’s a sign of weakness. I think it’s a sign of strength.”

Hello...God's ways work.  Whenever I write about submission, many people tell me how wrong I am to teach it.  See the ways of God are foreign to those who chose to not believe in Him.  Right is wrong and wrong is right.  However, there are a lot of unbelievers who choose to live by God's standards because they realize they are the right way to live.  His ways work.

It comes down to being unselfish;  loving others, especially your husband, more than yourself.  How can he not start loving and adoring you if you make it your mission in life to make him happy???  We do reap what we sow.  It may take time, but he will eventually respond to being loved in such a way.

Continue loving, serving, and being submissive to your husband.  When you do things God's ways, you reap His blessings.  If you continue to do things the world's ways, you will reap the world's blessing.  God's blessings are far beyond anything you can even hope or imagine.  Oh, how I love your ways, precious Jesus.

I am not sure if Gabrielle and her husband are believers or not but her husband is one blessed man!

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried:
he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
Psalm 18:30
