This is funny because I’m a worry wart and my favourite passage for most of my fears is 2 Tim 1:7 – God has not given me the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.
You know the best thing about this passage, is that he knows fear brings worry, and worry; insanity. So I will say I don’t have fears but I have uncertainties or should I say the challenge as a single person
I’m challenged about not finding the right person to love me in a godly manner – let me explain, I run away from “nice” men, I believe, they are the shrewdest in their thinking, they’ll hurt you with smiles and have the tendency to be possessive and own the most caustic tongue a person can have.
Then the bad boys, I don’t want those – I grew up in an abusive environment and I run from any guy that will so much as grip my hand in a rough manner in the name of play, in fact, I strike them off the marriage list, even courtship.
Now, my type of man is the one who has God in him, who won’t pressure me for sex, a guy who changes position when we walk by the road side to shield me, a kind man in every way, who knows how to treat a lady and acknowledges that God is her first lover. Yeah, that guy.
The challenge lies in meeting the adulterated type and not being able to discern because I’m too moved by my human sense instead of God-sense; or missing him because I am too stubborn to leave my comfort zone. Most importantly, it lies in the fact that I may not be ready or be the Proverbs 31 woman I ought to be.
Not just that, I feel I have so much to accomplish and that fact that I haven’t even got half way makes me think that I may not be taken seriously if my man comes.
I am comforted by the fact that God’s ways are not my ways and His thoughts not my thoughts, I shall go out with joy and be led out with peace; instead of the thorns, I will have cypress and instead of the brier, I’ll have the myrtle (Isaiah 55.9-12)
That’s the only person I can count on for my fears/uncertainties/challenges to be over. I after all submitted my will into His hands so the Potter can wield the clay wherever He so desires.
So there’s my answer, see you on Day 5. Express you in the comment box.
Stay in God. Peace, love, bisou bisou
