It’s godly [God-like] for a man to protect and take charge. It’s not godly for a woman to take charge. While men have to learn how to be with a woman – and sometimes it takes a long time – they still have to be in charge and the woman must stop being in charge. Especially women that are strong women, or women that were single moms. women have learned they must be in charge because of circumstances.
When women are around men, they need to be able to let the female side of them surface, not the take charge side. That is hard, switching back and forth and some women never attain it.
Men tend to be lazy and not work hard at being in charge because they would rather just ‘let her do it, she wants too’. But that’s a lie, women don’t want too, they were forced too at some point in their lives. Also, some women haven’t learned the balance of being a strong woman and allowing the man to lead. It’s an art.
When a husband and wife have the headship correctly, it works. The marriage works. That’s how God intended it to be.
For a man to say, “you’re my girl”, it speaks of something deeply inside him that is different from the deep emotion attached to “you’re my woman”. “You’re my girl is protective, as a man should be toward a woman. “You’re my woman” is thinking like an equal, still protective, but on an equal basis.
God makes lemon chiffon pie out of lemons. When we mess up in our choices, God can and does turn it around if we lean into Him and do our best.
I’m just your average Joe. That’s what God just told me in the hot tub. OHMYGOSH! FREEDOM! I had a dream the other nite, you can find it under ‘just my stuff’ the post about ‘i don’t think i can do this’.
I get a tremendous amount of revelation in the hot tub. Water. I’m a water baby. I love water, I thrive with water around me. Hence, I’m in the desert. It’s God’s joke. lol
But, I have a pool and a hot tub. So I can be in hot water wherever I am! LOL I was middling in my brain about that specific post. I have a lot of stuff in there that’s personal. But if there’s one thing I know as much as I know my own name, it’s that God wants me to be transparent. He made me transparent. That’s all I’ve heard for decades is about how transparent I am. [I used to think it was a bad thing, now I just think it’s one of ‘those’ God things] So just now in the hot tub, as I was pondering the dream..clearly President Trump is God, so God blew his trumpet and loudly told a select few, it wasn’t on tv or a press conference, it was on the radio! People LISTEN to a radio, tv they watch and don’t pay a lot of attention too, they hear and don’t pay a lot of attention too. But the radio…people listen to it, because they want too. But only a select group of people listen to the radio. It is THOSE people I reach.
So I say to God, ‘I’m sorry I put that on there about faith, maybe I should take it off. I don’t want to be disrespectful’.
God says, ‘leave it there’.
God, because it helps others
me, but it’s disrespectful
God, not it’s not, it’s saying how you feel
me, who’s going to hear? I’m just your average joe.
God, yes, you are an average joe. People need to see that everyone is the same. Most of the time they see ‘big shots’ that are unattainable and unreachable but they don’t see the realness of life, of walking with me. You are showing others that you ALL think these ways at one time or another. Janine, it’s not so much about you, as it is I want my children at ease, not stressing so much about what they THINK they should do, what they THINK they should act like. You are my vehicle baby girl. You ARE willing. So many aren’t.
Wow, this is huge. HUGE. This, THIS alone, set me free of a LIFETIME of living under the curse of being a perfectionist. I’m an AVERAGE JOE! HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I no longer have to BE what ANYONE thinks I should be. I no longer have to prove ANYTHING to ANYONE at ANY TIME. I can soar with God. I can fly! I can BE.
I can BE. If I’m overweight, SO WHAT! Am I loved anyway? YES! If I’m into herbs and flower essences and rocks and Jesus, SO WHAT! If I live however I want too, SO WHAT! I’M AN AVERAGE JOE!
WHAT A RELIEF! I NO LONGER HAVE TO HAVE STATUS TO BE A PERSON! I NO LONGER HAVE TO BE IMPORTANT IN THE WORLD, I NO LONGER HAVE TO MAKE MY MARK [I already met my goal of helping others with the business I just sold] I no longer have to help others, teach others. I can just BE. I can learn about ME, BE ME, have fun. THIS IS MY YEAR! 2018 is MY health year, MY YEAR.
