A Hard Word To Take
The word submit, seems to some, a dirty word hard to take;
But if you love the Lord, it’s a commitment you will make.
I’m not saying it won’t be hard, alone for you to do;
In trusting God and staying close to Him, it is possible for you.
I know at times a man; can just drive you up the wall;
But the Lord dwells near by us, gives strength when we call.
Sometimes, I know, you feel like growling and pulling out your hair;
Strength to show him love is there, when you give to God your care.
I know, it’s hard, when he takes advantage of the love you’ve shown;
But because of your patience and love, he has spiritually grown.
When the skillet has lifted, to bang upon his head;
Just remember ladies, you’ll miss him, when he’s dead.
When you’re tempted ladies, with the dog his bed to make;
Take a deep breath, and sloooowly meditate.
Just remember all the good times, the candy and that single rose;
And that love filled night, when he got the courage to propose.
There are so many things to appreciate; he is after all, your prince;
Even if at times he lacks, a simple common sense.
I know submit is a really hard word to take;
But please ladies, do it, for testimonies sake.
Then the Lord will bless, both you your children too;
If you’re just willing, to do as the Lord has told you to do.
If a day gets hard and you really want to ring his neck;
Just reach those sweet lips over and give him a little peck.
Now, if you feel like gritting your teeth, and making some mean face;
Call upon the Lord, to provide you with His strength and gentle grace.
With all fun and kidding aside, this remains serious advice
Love your husband dearly and live a life of sacrifice.
I wrote this just to be a bit funny, but at the same time teach a biblical truth taught in the scriptures.
1 Corinthians 16:16 That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Colossians 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
