I enjoy being in love. It’s fun, it’s stimulating, and it’s comforting. However, as I have matured, my anticipation for love has more permanent expectations attached to it. I still want the excitement, the flirting, the butterflies—but I also want the other stuff too. Primarily, a man who is strong enough to handle my submission to him. All right ladies, don’t ring the alarm just yet because I used the word submit. If we are to be true helpmates in the way that I believe God intended…that means submission. Now submission does not equal degradation, weakness or some other erroneous negative connotation. If it makes you feel better, substitute the word for deference, which means the willful submission of one’s will to the wishes of another.
This is why I said “a man who is strong enough to handle my submission to him.” My future husband has to be of strong mind yet be confident and sensitive enough to lead. A strong, Spirit-filled, God loving man, who has submitted himself to Christ will know exactly how to treat me…that in turn alleviates my fear of choosing the wrong man…he will be lead to me, and God will give him the green light saying there she is…Friend, Lover, Mother to your children and Partner. I am perfectly content with continuing to work on my life, both personally, professionally and most importantly spiritually until said time…I’m not chasing; it’s not necessary nor it is what I am supposed to do.
Anticipation of the good that is to come is a very, very beautiful thing.
