Since the ‘60’s, womanhood has been under attack. It became undesirable for a woman to stay at home and raise her children, keep her home and do all the “duties” that goes with being a wife, mother and homemaker. Women were being told through movies, media and music that being “merely” a housewife was not living up to her true potential.
Women who listened to this propaganda became unhappy and discontented with the role our heavenly Father had chosen for them. And so, over the ensuing years, women moved farther and farther away from what Abba meant for them to be doing with their lives to further His Kingdom.
They began seeking careers in the workforce, thereby competing with men. This caused a problem with gender recognition.Women began feeling they could do the same things as men. They even began dressing as men and trying to act as men. After all, the business world is “dog-eat-dog” and one must do all she can to climb the corporate ladder.
But as she climbed that ladder, she left her true calling and family behind. Her children became “latchkey kids”. They came home from school to an empty house with no supervision. Her husband enjoyed her paycheck but missed the wife who used to be there for him when he came home from his job. He started looking elsewhere for comfort and companionship and divorce rates skyrocketed.
Children were now from broken homes with one parent, who now had to work to keep house and home together. People became promiscuous, trying to fill the emptiness and void they had created. Children who were no longer nurtured at home began seeking the wrong kinds of closeness and as a result there were now children having children out of wedlock.
Our world has been radically changed, all because people preferred to believe a lie rather than Father’s truth. But I can see a change for the better. It may be minute at the moment but as I read SSM, I see that there are many young women in this generation who have been raised by loving parents and have stay-at-home mothers who love and nurture them to become the godly women who will also become stay-at-home wives and mothers.
The children from these homes will do the same and prayerfully, this trend that grabbed hold of women in the past will be just that, in the past! Our heavenly Father will not be defeated. He has a plan of restoration that will be carried out no matter what.
