Im sorry, but I completely disagree with this. C’mon. Women have not come this far in society to not be able to make up their own mind, or make their own choices. Maybe its the inner feminist in me talking, but i…
Well, that’s why this isn’t a religion. This is a relationship- this IS love. This is a love that has lived for us, died for us. So yes, love is important, if not the most important thing of all. But we must recognize that this love- this relationship- between us and God is our salvation. It must always come first. It must always be on our lips, in our actions, written in our hearts and engraved on our souls. Therefore, those relationships with people around us are an overflow, and this love we have for them? If it is not the kind of love that Christ had for us, then it isn’t really love. It is some tainted combination of infatuation, lust, and need for companionship. I don’t say this lightly. So I would rather give my heart to God, first, because I need Him, and then have Him give my heart to another. Because HE knows me better than anyone else- He’s knit me together! So He knows who’s most worthy of my heart, and when the time comes, that man will receive it. So yes, I’d like to be in control. But me, before God? I had everything “in control” and it got me absolutely nowhere. So I’m giving all control to the one who is, always has been, and always will be, in control. :)
I admire your devotion. we all make mistakes, if thats what youre referring to when you say you had everything “in control” as creatures of curiosity we will forever make mistakes, and as creatures of self awareness we will learn from the curiosities that put us in harm. In order to fall in love with someone you have to be with them for a while, you have to make a connection. just because you dont make that perfect connection the first 2 or 3 times doesnt mean you should just give up, and start praying that that perfect connection will happen (not that you gave up. your obviously devoted)
majority of guys are assholes, and i for one am proud of admitting that yes i am a “nice guy” you look at the statistics (looking at this from a mathematical point of view), then yes, you might end up with a couple of assholes before you get to the guy thats right for you. but while youre on that search, you cant lose faith in the most important thing to have faith in - Yourself
I understand about loving god, and your relationship with him having to be engraved on your body, i get all that, what i cant get is saying that “he comes first” you, your self, your mind, your heart, your soul, your body should always come first, until you have children, then you put them first. cause if you say he comes first, then even when you have children, what it comes down to - technically - is youre a putting a belief in front of your children. and ill never get that, but i guess thats why im rambling on.
I do respect your love and devotion though, but again, its something ill never understand.
