(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

Music HighwayA change of behavior begins with a change of heart. – Thought For Today, WIHS 104.9 FM

On my previous post entitled Angry Men and the Women Who Love Them, I gave a brief book report on the subject of domestic spouse abuse. What I find alarming is that this form of violence is occurring all around us in all segments of our communities. It does not matter what race or nationality, economic status or educational level, spousal abuse is present all around us.

God sees it all. He has told us in His word, the Bible, that we husbands are to love our wives in the same manner that Jesus Christ loves the church (Ephesians 5:25-27). Does God batter His Church and His children? No, He loves and cherishes her and His offspring. And because of the blood of Jesus Christ, the Father in heaven sees the Church as pure, righteous and sinless.

Marriages where women are mistreated by their mates is a marital lifestyle that is not what God wants it to be. Many women have, in effect, become more like slaves to their mates rather than wives with their husbands.

Therefore, this is the message I want to convey to you through the YouTube videos below.

Women especially were made to be loved – not to be selfishly taken advantaged physically and emotionally. They were made to be encouraged and given emotional support. Women need to be given R-E-S-P-E-C-T  (see bonus video).

With God’s help, let us men become the mates our wives can sing about. Allow God to work through you to inspire them to be joyful in their marriages. With God’s help, have your wives sincerely sing to you the YouTube song below.

And women! If you are a Christian, with a few changes of the lyrics, you can sing this song to God. You can, for example, substitute Jesus for the word baby.

And if you, Christian or non-Christian, find yourself in a difficult marriage situation – a situation you do not find pleasing, I pray that you can soon sing the YouTube video to God! I pray that you will. I pray that others be praying for you at this moment.

We pray that you would soon use the song below to worship Jesus Christ. Why? Because He greatly loves you.

Looking out on the morning rain

Lord, it made me feel so tired

Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you’re the key to my peace of mind

45 rpm Atlantic label

Because you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along, to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
Until your kiss helped me name it

Now I’m no longer doubtful of what I’m living for
And if I make you happy I don’t need to do more

Because you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

Album released 1968

Oh, baby, what you done to me?
You make me feel so good inside
And I just wanna be close to you
You make me feel so alive

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman
