Mark of a Godly Woman #4: They Suffer in Silence

Should we suffer in silence? Godly women tend to think so. In fact, the mark of a godly woman is the more you suffer in silence, the more you bottle it up and put on happy face to the world, the more godly you are. Blogging about a perfect life helps temper the suffering inside.

I think it is not good to suffer in silence; largely for the reasons listed here.

  1. Ah yes, but it’s vitally important that you pour words, lots and lots of words, describing precisely how you always learn in all silence and subjection. Also, if a woman comes along, be sure to whack her upside the head a few times. It helps to relieve the internal pressure caused by all that silence….

    Here’s what I believe, God wants to hear all of it, every single thing that concerns you, concerns Him. Second of all, good marriages involve good communication. And third, you should have mentors, spiritual leaders, friends to share your struggles with.

    Postpartum depression is a serious concern. I had what is referred to as “mild postpartum” after my second child. It was pretty darn scary and I had a great deal of support.

    Ah, but don’t forget to mention how much you suffer in silence!

    More seriously, if we as wives owe anything to our husbands, we owe them a truthful account of how things are going at home, and that includes necessary status reports on how we ourselves are doing. Our husbands cannot possibly make good decisions if we are giving them the mushroom treatment…

    Also, lying to your husband (even by omission) isn’t very godly or submissive!
