If God is Not the Head

What couple looks at their relationship and wishes its utter demise at first glance? What couple thinks their years together could have been an utter waste as they watch the fights and arguments over complete nonsense? What couple would have dared spend an hour in some unnecessary activity, though it may not have been sinful, if they had known that those hours could have been used to be with the one that needed them most? This all seems completely clear, though being seen in hindsight. Granted we have a much better view of what caused the argument, we know that things could be so much better than they have been. And to think how we could have, so simply, shut our mouths and given in, but we have to be the big man and put our proverbial foot down. There is so much to say to a person, not unlike me, (for those of you wondering why I didn't just say this is about me...well...I just did) who can't help but criticize everything about someone else, but when someone else steps on our toes, we freak out and throw stuff like a five year old throwing a temper tantrum. Why is that? Well, to me it seems plain and quite simple. We think everybody who smokes, drinks, commits adultery, and all other rude and illicit sins that smack God in the face and wish to say how much better we are than God, well, we think we must be so much better than them. But to be rebellious to God, to think we can live without him in our everyday lives, to remain in anger is NOT THAT BAD. Until a person gives in to God, and surrenders to him, they will never have peace, or sustaining joy. The same is said of a couple. Until the husband gives himself fully to God to make him the head of all matters of faith and practice in that home, they will never have peace and joy; and until a wife submits to God and makes the husband the head of the home, realizing that she is submitting to the husband as unto the Lord then that home will never have peace and joy.

If God is Not the Head

If God is not the head
What sadness will impart.
If God is not the head
That home should never start.
If God is not the head
The bliss will soon be lost.
If God is not the head
Joy’s end will be the cost.
If God is not the head
Who guides to where leads best?
If God is not the head
Stayed love will be a test.
If God is not the head
Such anger will set in.
If God is not the head
Longsuffering will wear thin.
If God is not the head
Self-love will soon take place.
If God is not the head
Time for others will seem a waste.
If God is not the head
The order is reversed.
If God is not the head
Your home will seem though cursed.
