Your Future Marriage

Recently, my dad and I have had some intense "discussions". I personally struggle with the self-control to be able to say my thoughts,but then back off and let my dad be the ultimate authority. Too often I won't be able to just say my thoughts and then leave it because golly gee I just HAVE to be right!! My mom pointed out to me that I need to learn to be submissive because later on when I'm married it will sure come in handy! Have your ever thought about how your relationship with your dad is going to deeply effect your relationship with your future husband? I sure hadn't! Your husband isn't going to be perfect, he is a human being just like you and me. Our dads aren't perfect are they? No. Just like our dad our husband isn't going to be perfect and will make mistakes. He may make decisions you don't strongly agree with, but he is the one in charge. God has specifically placed him in charge of you and your future family. Ultimately, it's up to him to decide what is best.

It's the same way with our dads. I don't always agree with my dad, but I trust him even through his decisions. I may not agree with what he is doing,but I know he is my authority placed in my life by God and I need to follow him.


Colossians 3:20 (New International Version)

20Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.

If you obey and trust your dad it will have a deep effect on your future marriage.
God has called us to love our authority no matter their character flaws.

Your sister in Christ,
