Keep the Fatih. . .

Two blogs, two days in a row. Someone alert the media. At any rate, I just received an email that is forcing me to sit over here and really think about some things. Veep sent me this forward entitled “Is HE the ONE: THE RIGHT ONE?” The gist of the email is breaking down how women should trust God to send the right man to them. A few things stuck out to me on this email and I thought I’d share my interpretations as they relate to me.

Firstly it says “First we much allow our Heavenly Father to do the picking.” I’m not the most religious person. I am working on getting my relationship with the Lord right. I digress, though. Even though I am not very religious, I am a firm believer in God placing people in your lives for certain reasons. I also believe that He has a design set for everyone’s lives and if it is so destined for two people to be yoked, He is the one who brings these two together at the proper time.

“Dating exists not for mating; it exists for collecting data.” Interesting point with which I wholly agree. Think about it. Do you honestly know what you want in a potential mate? If so, how did you come to this conclusion? By dating around and having dealings that allow you to sift out the undesirable qualities and become more concrete in what you find attractive and so on.

“Remember, women fall in love and get married. Men decide to get married and then look for a wife.” Read that shit again and tell me it is the not the truth! How many men have you met who have expressed a desire for marriage and tell you about the plans they have for it. Think really hard. I’ll wait. I do not know any. A similar thought was expressed when I was listening to the radio yesterday. I’m not one who believes in coincidence. This was something I needed to hear so He sent it to me in two different forms. There is a man with whom I had a very close relationship. There was a time when I could see myself marrying him, word life. It took awhile, but I finally realized that it doesn’t matter how bad I wanted to marry him, he has to want it as well. I’m over here swooning and he’s just chilling. Kinda into me, but not really like that. Certainly not in the way in which he would want to marry me. And why would he right now? I’m not marriage material in this moment. There are a lot of things that I’ve got to get together before I can properly be someone’s wifey. Again, I digress though.

The overwhelmingly obvious point of this email was that in order to get to the place God wants you to be to find your One, you need to first work on your relationship with Him. As I mentioned before mine is severely lacking. It’s not something as simple as going to church to mend this relationship either. I need to take a long, hard look at my life and examine it to determine what I really want out of it. I know that I want to be successful, but how can I do that with no faith. Sure I believe in God, but I want to pick and choose when I want to put my faith in Him. As soon as something goes wrong, I am the first to condemn Him. Ask why He is making me suffer yet again. Lament and cry out against Him. Instead of bowing to His omniscience, I question it. I always assume that I know what is better for me and do not understand why He chooses to send me down a path that I am not happy with. Then I have to think about the concept of free will and how although He gives me these setups, ultimately it is my choices that make me end up where I inevitably end.
