There's nothing like being in love. Holding hands....kissing......having companionship....and
At least we hope, right?
First off, to the Fam: No, I'm not engaged. (smile) This post is actually aabout being single.
But the title is about marriage...
Let me explain.
Ya see, I am enjoying my singleness right now and I thank God for it. I thank God for the wisdom to know that I'm not ready yet. How do I know that, well let's take one of the most popular Biblical stories: The creation of Adam and Eve.
Okay, notice God's order: Adam was on Earth by himself naming everything. Think about how long he was roaming the garden giving things names! The Bible never specifies how long Adam was on the earth by himself, but he was on the earth long enough to figure out that there was no animal or plant or anything that he could relate to. At that time is when God decided to bring Eve into the picture.
So what does this tell me?
God wants me to "handle business" prior to me receiveing a mate. Think about it: God could have easily made Eve two seconds after making Adam and they could've roamed the garden together naming and discovering things.
But He didn't!
When Eve came into the picture, Adam already had a home for her, he knew how to grow things in the garden, he knew where to get water, etc.etc.
How much work do you think Adam would've got dome with "naked Eve" standing around?
If he was like most men, none!!!
God has a divine order for everything, and I DO MEAN EVERYTHING!!!
So, as much as women talk about "meeting the man of your dreams," we should make sure that we're the women of their dreams when we meet them!!!
Take care of business: Have a plan....have your credit in order....be able to bring something to the table prior to getting married...
Just food for thought....your thoughts?
