Raising My Hand

Ladies, have you ever said or thought this before?

I’m a great woman. Smart, resourceful, respectful, humble, prayerful, God fearing, grateful, employed, loving and caring. I’m always trying to be of service to those around me. So, if I have all those characteristics then why can’t I seem to find those same qualities in men that I meet?

Raises hand…

I have.

I’ve even said that I’m not asking for someone to be the exact replica of me, but I want someone who wants to give me more? What gives with men thinking that women today should accept less than we deserve? I am a curvy girl with a brain and a feminist. I have a brain and I like to engage in intellectual conversations with men. Men may not know everything I’m talking about, but they should act interested. I want someone to show me that because it matters to me it simply matters to them. Do you ever want that?

I read this Facebook post the other day that had me screaming, “Yes, Lord” and began forwarding it to all my friends.

The author says, “Many people like the idea of you, but lack the maturity to handle the reality of you.” Brilliant right? Remember everything has a season. Focus on being the Β best you that you can be and understand that what God has for you is just for you. Keep praying and praising and God will send you who he wants you to have.

But, should you or I get weary on this journey, worried or heartbroken by life or situations; let’s remember that Proverbs 31:30 says:

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,Β but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (NRSV)

Be blessed loves!
