I have been serving single people who love and honor the Lord for almost two decades now while, I, myself is a síngle person. I have heard and some witnessed stories of female single friends of how they fell in love and heard and witnessed, too, a lot of single people experienced the biggest heartbreak of their lives.
One night, I reflected what it takes to be the right person for another right person. This article is a result of that reflection
Following a love letter
Here’s the prequel to that.
What it Takes to be Mr Right (A Love Letter)
How have you been?
Heavens just stopped and dropped their singing these days whenever your heart smiles at my own daughter whether in person or at the screen everytime you message her.
I have planned of your existence long before the foundation of the world but your moves and decisions surprise me these days.
I smile with you whenever she smiles back at you. Heavens rejoice with you.
You sure are responding to the growing seed that I have planted in your heart, a seed that speaks of me, a seed that glorifies me, a seed that gives purpose to your living. And that brings me honor.
The seed of desiring to find a wife comes from me. A wife who is not appropriate for me, but aptly for you. Someone suitable for you, so, someone I fashioned for you. Since, I created and love you, I know very well what you need, what you like, what complements you and above all, what will make you closer to me and not what will take you away from me.
As you search for her out from a growing desire to find someone to love for a lifetime, to make babies with and be a helpmate to your future family, I want to draw you more to me. The more that you build your relationship with me, the more that seed grows. Remember that seed comes from me and only me can grow that seed, so, come to me, my Son, my future Kingdom builder, my beloved.
Let me water the soil of your being, so it will be fertile. Once fertile, the seed will grow into sprout. Let me clear the clouds of fear in your head. I am the way, the truth and the life, so, with me you can clear all confusion. Let me reveal to you the great manhood that I have created you to live – out. You can do great things far more than what you thought of yourself. You have my image and likeness and, thus, you carry the power and splendor of my Name. I created that manhood and thus, you have immense strength to build, destroy and endure. Let me remind you my son, once again, that you are called to be holy for I am holy. In your holiness, in your stronger relationship with me and in your deep love for me, then, you shall gain direction and will not be dismayed when you find the person I have created, molded and will respond to your search.
My Son, I am here with you in the pursuit I have designed for your life. If you invite me to join you in your pursuit and obey to be the person who you really are in my eyes then you will be Mr Right for someone that caught your eye, someone like a prey to your hunt, someone I have fashioned, molded and loved, someone who is herself loves and honors me, too.
You have what it takes to be Mr Right and soon, be a leader of church called a family.
Dear Mr Right, It’s February and you are still out of sight, but, if ever you are within 3km radius from me, please meet me at the park at 7am. I have been single for quite sometime and I hope you are, too, in a decent period of time. During that time while you were…Read More
Five months ago, I visited my housemate at the hospital a day after she delivered her second child, together with her 5-year old son. Wanting to hold the boy as his father had many things in his hands, I alighted at the wrong side of the road. But to my horror, I saw a car…Read More
1. May you find someone worth keeping and may you find that someone keeping you back.
2. May your eyes be opened to the truth and believe that truth will set you free.
3. May you find someone who recognises your light and takes care of your scar.
4. May you find true friends who can speak word of truth to you and can determine the time when to speak it.
5. May you find time to take care of yourself.
6. May you find reasons to protect yourself.
7. May you find ways to celebrate your giftedness.
8. May you draw your standards and create an invisible but felt line around it.
9. May you be drawn deeply into the image of the lady our Creator has planned for you.
10. May you find a lady smiling back at you when you look at the mirror.
All these I pray in the mighty name of Your son Jesus who lives with You together with the Holy Spirit. One God. Forever.
