Just Balance with Brittany: Balancing being a whole WIFE
What's up? How have y'all been? I hope nothing but the best, and if not, I pray that God grant you peace and wisdom during this time.
My first and best example of what a wife should be is my adorable Mommy, Stacey. I mean I don't know any one that does it better (of course, everyone says this about their person so just oblige me 🖤). I mean honestly, she just made everything look easy. The older that I get and the more time I spend being married to my amazing husband, I realize all the behind the things stuff that goes into being a wife that I never got to see (you know, we stayed out of grown folks business 🖤).
As I have started to explore my pushing back on societal norms and expectations of what it means to be a wife, I have started to ask myself "why"- and so it came up in therapy and we have managed to just stay there for a few sessions. So I'm doing the work and really being introspective around what it means to be a wife- and honestly, today, like right now in this moment, I'm doing a good job of keeping the balance. What better way to dump my thoughts than right here on my podcast. So here it goes.......balancing being a whole wife.
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. – Ephesians 5:21-28
