Marriage Fears.

“What if this or that happens, then what? GOD, I HAVE TO SHARE EVERYTHING?” 

Being the spoiled only child, I’m not used to sharing or having someone in my face all of the time. If I don’t want to be bothered, I can just hang up the phone and enjoy the rest of my day. As I’m learning and growing I have discovered a few things.

Being single is great – but relationships are necessary and important. It will take some adjusting but I can’t live a selfish and fearful life. The Bible has many scriptures that point out why marriage is so important to God’s kingdom.

In the Christian lifestyle, women were designed to help a man achieve goals and visions. No, we are not meant to be doormats, or not have a voice. When a husband eventually comes into my life, I must be his teammate.

Life experiences are also preparing me for a wife role. Being in the corporate world has taught me how to respect someone as an individual while still getting work done. My beautiful aunt has shown me what a graceful wife looks like to my uncle and their wonderful children.

As I’m on this journey on allowing a man to pursue me, I will put my faith in God and know he will direct the entire thing.

24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 

Ephesians 5:24

Blog Update : Schedule for Priorities

When I got back from the gym last night, I looked at my schedule.

“Oh my gosh –  I set myself up to burn out.”

Truth is, I want to meet someone worth having a marriage with. With small groups, working and other activities – I wouldn’t have time to give a potential partner.

So for a partner I don’t even have [yet], I sat down and organized my entire schedule.

And that is where you all come in.

Instead of going for a Monday / Wednesday / Friday schedule, I’m switching gears.

To free up my schedule it will be Tuesday / Thursday / and Saturday.

I’m still very passionate about my blog – so the content will still be great quality.

Thank you so much for understanding.

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, 23 because the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of the body. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives are to submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her Ephesians 5:22-25

26 Things to do While You’re Waiting on “The One”

When I’m talking to a potential husband candidate I always ask “how have you been spending your 20s?” “If you’re 26, what have you been doing these past 6 years?” If he doesn’t have a good enough answer, I am not interested. Here’s a list of what I’ve been doing so I have the perfect answer if someone ask me the same thing.

  1. Building my relationship with Jesus
  2. Going to counseling so I won’t come with unnecessary baggage.
  3. Spending time with my family
  4. Building healthy relationships with god fearing ladies
  5. Updating my wardrobe
  6. Trying out cute hair styles
  7. Getting my nails done
  8. Reading self help books
  9. Watching relationship videos
  10. Experiencing life within limits
  11. Traveling
  12. Doing my makeup
  13. Learning new recopies
  14. Making it a habit to keep my apartment clean
  15. Making it a habit to keep my car clean
  16.  Reading scriptures on what being a wife is all about
  17. Learning parenting skills through my puppy
  18. Praying
  19. Focusing on my career
  20. Loving the life I have
  21. Making peace out of the life I have
  22. Analyzing my previous relationships so I know what to do next time
  23. Organizing my finances
  24. Going to the gym
  25. Not entertaining guys I don’t see a future with
  26. Letting God pick the one

Please don’t sit at home hoping wishing and praying for your husband to come. Get yourself in order so when he comes, you will be ready to have an equal partnership.

22 A man who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22
