Do you find obedience to be easy for you?
Obedience to anyone in my life is NOT easy for me. I am a strong independent woman who relies completely on myself to survive in and be successful at life. I was taught by strong women to not rely on anyone else, especially a man, to provide for me. I am headstrong and feel as though my opinion is usually the right one. I get frustrated with people when they don’t listen to me and it takes effort on my part to not be too pushy. So, when I think of being obedient to people in my life, it makes me smirk.
I, however, don’t even question doing what He wants. Obedience comes as a second nature when it is directed towards Him. I don’t even think, my body just complies with His demands. It is a great feeling and a reason why I know what I am doing with Him is right. Something that comes so easy and makes me feel so complete could never be the wrong decision.
Does that mean that everything is perfect and my life is one that movies are made out of? Lol, not hardly, but the best parts do make the bad parts better. I don’t worry nearly as much as I used to, I don’t obsess as much, and I have even learned some semblance of patience, which if you knew me would know that is a feat all in itself. As stubborn, independent, and proud I am about my life accomplishments, I value my relationship and obedience to Him above all else.
It is funny to say but I think of my submission as my biggest achievement. I feel so happy and complete in my mind and body and it is all attributed to being able to finally let go. I love the feeling of giving myself to Him. I have never truly given myself to anyone before. I thought I had in the past but now that I am living in this moment I realize the truth. I almost feel bad for cheating myself and the other people in my past relationships but there is no changing it.
Now, I relish in this moment of my life. I wake up smiling and go to bed feeling like there is actually another person in this world who understands me and is helping to make me better. I feel accepted and that is a great feeling. So, do I find obedience easy? With Him, easy doesn’t even describe it, obedience with Him feels like the way is should always be.
