A life of subservience isn't really a life at all; God made you with the intention of being a help mate, but what you must understand is a help mate is not an inferior position. It's not a lower level ranking; you have just as much to bring to the table. The bible speaks of a woman being the weaker vessel which refers to her physical strength. But there are times when a woman is stronger than the man in many areas. She's a rib and the rib's job is protecting the vital organs, her man. So there's no need in lying down and being this subservient doormat to be walked over, disregarded, and taken advantage of. That is not your purpose, you position in the relationship is just as important as the man. When you have the right man in your life who fully understands your purpose everything will just flow, you will be able to feel it, and they will help to bring out the best in you as you will help to bring out the best in them. The two of you work together being in partnership together. - By Danjuma Iliya.
