I went to Walmart after work today and low and behold a lady that I knew from years past approached me. The number one question after saying our hello's was "Are you married yet?" I smiled and replied " No, I'm not but when God sends me the right one then I will." When it comes to men I have high standards. No nothing like that. I mean it's very important to me to find someone who believes there is a higher power (God) and someone who will love me as Jesus loved the church. I don't expect a man to bow down to me. I want to be cherished. In the past I have looked for the wrong type of guy. I look for something different. Now that I am a woman of faith, I choose to find a man of faith. I cannot be with a nonbeliever. I been there, done that and will never go back. A woman's heart should be so lost in God, a man has to seek Him in order to find her. I am letting God choose for me (besides he will better at it- lol) I was seeing a guy who thought money was power and mocked my faith in God- NEVER AGAIN! So girls and guys, the next time someone asks you if you are married and you are not, tell them- Nah, God has someone for me and He will send that person to me. never sell yourself short and don't settle for less. You are a child of God and He wants you to be happy and in love. I always said that when the right guy comes along for me, I would like this to happen- when he kisses me my foot will pop up like in one of those old classic movies when a man kisses the woman. I know...I know...silly but hey.... We will see.....I found some verses tonight that really stood out for me.
Song of Solomon 1:2
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine.
Song of Solomon 8:6
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8a and 13
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (NIV)
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. (NIV)
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. (NIV)
