I’ve learned that I don’t necessarily have to trust my husband in every detail in order to be happily married, and to gladly follow him, because my husband is not really the guide along this journey of life anyway.
Ever heard the phrase, “Respect must be earned”? Well — it’s a false statement — at least in Biblical terms as it relates to husbands and wives! “However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:33 Hmmm. . . not a suggestion. Not a multiple choice option. Pretty much a command. Yep!
Your husband should have a secure trust in you, a trust that inspires a confidence and security within his heart that he will never truly lack as long as he has you, and he has no reason to fear of failure because in your eyes he will always be a success.
Some of the most beautiful scenery along this journey of life has been off the beaten path, along a trail that I would have never seen or attempted on my own, but following my husband in trust, yielded a wonderful journey.
