“So the Angel of the LORD said to her, ‘Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.’ ”  Genesis 16:9  NKJV

Submitting can be one of the hardest things to do.

Thank You, Lord, for teaching us first to submit to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, as You
grow us

to live in submission
to You

we can
submit to others

knowing You’re in control
there too.

God bless you as you submit yourself to God and others.

Submitting To One Another

“. . .but be filled with the Spirit . . .submitting to one another in the fear of God.”  Ephesians 5:18,21

Submitting can be a touchy subject.

Lord, please help me understand more and more about submitting to others in fear of You, not them.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Heart Sure

Submitting sounds like
giving in
like being a door mat
for others to wipe their feet on
before barging in
but God sees it as a heart
so sure of its surrender
to Him
that it can make way
without being lessened
or dimmed.

Over All

“But if he does make them void after he has heard them, then he shall bear her guilt.” Numbers 30:15

This chapter of Numbers covers laws about vows. It was a little more complicated for women. Their vows could be canceled or acknowledged by their fathers and/or husbands.

Oh Lord, please help us to submit to You and one another in love, returning us to our rightful places, on our faces at Your feet. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Non-Stick Guilt

There is nothing done
or not done
apart from You
and no guilt can stick
for failing to submit
to oppressive
human made

Please pray with me about this post! And add more to it as He leads. I feel too close to it and may not have represented His heart in it as well as I would’ve liked. Thank you!
