A man is the Head. I Corinthians 11:3, Ephesians 5:23. When you look at the human body, the head seems to be small but it is powerful. It has the eyes with which we see, the ear, with which we hear and the mouth. The brain is also found in the head. The head controls the whole body.
A woman on the other hand can be likened to the neck, that can turn the head in any direction. As much as the woman can do this, she still has to accord respect to the head, the man, by giving him peace.
There are several ways to give your husband peace…
1) Understand the nature of men..
Men are like elastic bands. Sometimes, they just want to pull away from their wives a little, not because they are quarrelling with her, but they just need space to think. They need a quiet atmosphere.
As a woman, you should understand this and be his peace. Don’t be quarrelsome, always talking and talking.
A man is different from a woman in the way he thinks. A man thinks deeply. A woman does not think as deeply as a man does, she only thinks faster.
A woman juggles with both sides of her brain but a man does not. A man cannot multitask as much as a woman. A man defines himself by what he does while a woman defines herself by who she is.
When both spouses understand each other and their nature, there is less misunderstanding in the home. A woman needs to understand her husband and give him peace and vice versa.
When a man was created, it was because he was wanted. When a woman was created, it was because she was needed.
2) Stop pointing out the mistakes of your husband everytime.
Stop pointing out your husband’s mistakes everytime. Quit nagging and complaining. Proverbs 25:24.
It is your responsibility to make him happy. When there is happiness in the home, there will be peace and vice versa. With his body language, you can know if he is happy or not.
3) Keep improving on yourself
As a woman, keep improving on yourself. Even if you are a grandmother, you are somebody’s wife. Know a little about everything so that you can make contributions and he can ask your opinion about certain things.
This makes him trust and respect you more. He is at peace knowing that you will give him the best advice. He is at peace knowing that he can always come to you for solace.
4) Play with your husband.
As a woman, you dictate the mood of your marriage. As a woman, it is your power. it is a secret code which God has given to you. Stop keeping a straight face all the time.
Proverbs 21:19. You need to form a bond with him that must not be replaced by your children. The children will grow up, get married and leave. The bond you have formed with him through the years is what will make you enjoy his company and vice versa, when the children are gone. Laugh and play together. Enjoy each other’s company.
As a woman, you have the power to set the tone of your marriage. You can either be a man’s peace or a man’s headache. If you are a wise woman, be his peace.
