Difference Between Submission and Obedience
submit (v): 1) to give over or yield to the power or authority of another; 2) to present for the approval, consideration, or decision of another or others: to submit a plan; to submit an application;
obey (v): 1) to comply with or follow the commands, restrictions, wishes, or instructions of; 2) to comply with or follow (a command, restriction, wish, instruction, etc.).
As you can see, by definition, submission is a far greater thing than obedience.
Submission requires love, respect and a wiling yield to another. Obedience on the other hand doesn't require any personal relationship between the one giving the "command" and the one obeying the command.
My Gracious Moment:
I often see myself as an obedient wife rather of a submissive one.
I believe, I have to repent in many areas being a wife!!
I can say I am better now compare with the first few months of marriage which I had the big transition to face.
These days in God's help & guidance, I am being mindful of being a homemaker, things that really concerns home. It become a habit to clean the house , do chores when I get home from work.
I desire to be a full time wife, homemaker, and future mom.
