Submission in Marriage Bible Study
My Husband and me

I am a 28 year old mother and 2nd time wife. I am remarried after being divorced from my first husband after several counts of adultery. I am learning the art of submitting. I am a very strong willed woman and after going through a very hard first marriage (married at 17 years old) I have built a brick wall around myself to protect my spirit. I am now trying to break through that wall and learn to submit to my new husband. I really need some strong support in learning this art. I say that it is an art because it is a very hard trying thing for women to do in today's day in time.
Scriptures: Wives, be under the authority of your husbands, as is right in the Lord.
I want to do what is right by the Lord and so I though by praying with other women about this...it may help lead me in the right direction. I can follow every law of the Bible and then I get to this one and I want to run. It is a curse in someways.
Questions it brought to my mind...
If I truly want what is best for myself then I must follow what God has commanded me to do. If I ever want to be truly happy, then this is the way to get to that point. Following even those things you do not like.
Thanks for reading and any feedback is great.
