I absolutely believe that we (as man and woman – in a relationship) were created to carry out 2 very distinct roles that equally contribute to One Whole – which is the union of LOVE between man and woman who honors themselves, each other and God!!
The STRENGTH of a man is actually in him being a Champion for his family and in his care, concern and reverence for his woman. He should always be there by her side, to protect and defend and speak proudly of her to all… He is the one the family looks to as a role model. Not “do as I say, but do as I do”! As a man, a husband, a father, a worker and spiritually as well — How he conducts himself and treats others resonates far louder than his words!!
The BEAUTY of a woman lies is in her kindness, compassion and her nurturing soul… Her role is always to support and enable her man to become ALL the Best he can be (just as she does her children) – in the home, workplace and the world in general! She says “wait and listen”, and gently reminds him when acting brash or he wants to forge ahead too quickly! He in turn does not see it as criticism but as a much-needed perspective that he wants and needs to have! She should always be assured that by him taking the “lead” it is understood that he does so WITH HER in mind and always by his side!!
A TRUER PARTNERSHIP can never be found when it is like this – the way it was intended to be!! I think we have a tendency to think of ourselves as separate individuals – having separate needs and objectives! When God meant for us to BECOME AS ONE!!! To think and act in all ways as a UNIT and not two forces in opposition with each other or with greater distance growing between them as they travel down their individual paths!
It is intended that we should complement one another. Each of our strengths can strengthen the other. We are to edify one another – Always build each other up, not tear each other down. For when we do this, when we truly act in the best interest of one another – in the family unit as a whole… Everyone grows and is strengthened by it!!
Much love to you all!! ❤ ~ Bren ❤
