A good book to read–Fearlessly feminine by Jani Ortlund
It is not, however, the institution of marriage that is to be feared. The problem is not the nature of marriage. The problem is us. We are at fault. Marriage only unmasks our inadequacies. Marriage is not our enemy. It is a part of God’s perfect, pre-Fall creation. Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage should be honored by all.” When we women honor our marriages with fearless femininity, what sweet compensations follow. As we yield to God’s design for marriage, we are stretched in liberating ways that free us to receive sincere love, real romance, and tangible security.
