A Single Woman’s Perspective

 

Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
1 Peter 3:4

For single Christian men who are reading this, let me give you the inside dope:

I ain’t these things, homie.

So, feel free to move on.

My personality and temperament is not wired like this.

I get angry when provoked. I am playful and giddy when happy. I am honest to a fault. And from time to time, I get sad as well. In other words, I am all woman.

I don’t apologize for these things. With God’s grace, I am perfectly okay with who I am today.

I know I will ruffle a few feathers here (and I know my Christian friends will forgive me nonetheless for this boldness), but I honestly don’t have any plans of becoming a Pastor’s wife.

I want to be the wife of a decent human being who is secure in his spiritual walk with the Lord. Men who are legalistic robots are not for me.

With God in the center of our relationship, I would want my future husband to focus on our marriage and our family. That’s it. I don’t think that’s asking too much.

The reason I am writing this is because in as much as women want everything perfect: A Godly husband, family, stable finances, etc. we all have to live with non-believers. And to box oneself in a particular group will hinder growth.

You want to improve on your spiritual walk? Go out and meet new people!

I noticed that I pray harder and rely more on the Lord when I am in the midst of non-Christians.

If the Lord does give me a good, stable and secure man, then thanks a lot! I don’t deserve it but huge, huge thanks!

In the meantime, I will enjoy God’s greatest gift to me: My Vibrant Single Life 😉
