|My Grandparents at around year 48 of marriage -
a worthy investment!
Now years later, a few broken hearts, I finally get it.
We have dating sites - which are often more like hookup sites - we have mutual friends, we flirt with every guy in line at the grocery store - face it ladies we are out to trap our husband one way or another - but did we think to go to the word of God for him.
Wait! What???? we are not going to find a husband in the Bible - those people are all dead and gone.....oh that's not what that means?
I take this as God means for us to follow the word of God, be patient, and God will deliver the one that is meant to be to us - hmmmm if only I had known that 15 years ago.
So here it is blunt, flat out truth, you want a man that will be there until the end - find a man of God.
Men are everywhere - just like women, but in no better words "we get what we pay for"
Lust is cheap - I mean so cheap that people can have a new lust everyday. I have often made the joke to gentleman callers "you will disappear soon enough" and while they will disagree and tell me I am wrong - weeks later they are gone and have moved onto another woman - those men are in lust. They lust for the woman's body, not after the love of a woman's heart. (note women do this too)
Love is Pricey - Okay first love is free, but love is also a huge investment (mostly of time). Love does not happen overnight (that instant attraction is lust), but that feeling that grows over time is love. I remember watching this little old lady order her husband's meal - I asked her how are you sure that is what he wants - she replied "oh sweetie, over time you just know" - well love grows like that - we can't order for our person the first day we meet them, but 30 years down the road we should know their appetite by heart.
So ladies (and gentlemen), when spouse shopping; invest wisely. Go to word of God for advice on dating and relationships, then shop in the right places, and God will deliver that perfect mate to you.
