Think Like A Man has made $33 million dollars in its opening weekend beating out The Hunger Games! Honey, that is AMAZING for an African American full cast foundational movie! I am shocked….. Nonetheless, I read Steve Harvey‘s book via what the movie is based upon called Act Like A Lady and Think Like A Man..
I said to myself geesh… wow – Mr. Steve made MILLIONS off of this common sense stuff!!! Man, my father raised me to THINK AND ACT LIKE THIS since I was in middle school!!
I am sure that this movie is SUPER DUPER FUNNY but from a Christian perspective …….. it is sad that there are INDEED several women who do not have common sense. Whether there were a lack of male role models in their lives to the lack of strong, wise and feminine women to show them how to take a stand and just plain old common sense.
However, with Christ in your life……..your standards become higher of what they would if you were not living for HIM. Common sense though in some situations that women seem to settle with….deal with and put up with is a TRAVESTY.
I am a single woman….. I am a single parent…. but I have standards! I had standard EVEN BEFORE I LIVED FULLY FOR GOD! So with that being sad… why is it that a great deal of women seem to settle for anything and anyone just so they are not LONELY?
Do not get me wrong… I desire to be with someone and be a Godly wife to a GODLY husband… but I rather WAIT than SUFFER! You will end up singing……writing……wondering why that you have found love in a hopeless place because you are lonely!
I am indeed praying for my fellow sisters in Christ as well as the women of the world to DISCOVER CHRIST and find out who they are! Who God says that they are……..
Some married women also need to ask God for wisdom on how to minister correctly to single women as well….. I say this because as a married woman, if you are going HOME to biceps….triceps….and nice big strong hands… show a little compassion and just admit that you know how the single woman can feel at times! Dont sing that HOLD ON story without being transparent yourslef okay!!!
I am NOT going to act as if I am a woman who is going to sit and shout to the roof tops that GOD IS ALL THAT WE NEED AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE WITH ANYONE!!!
PLEASE! God’s 1st institution was MARRIAGE!!! If anything I will pray that God will grant you strategy…tactics…wisdom… more grace and more mercy to HOLD ON until “that time comes”….
2012 and beyond seems to be the devil’s new and improved playground for dating and everything else… but ask God to keep you ….really have the desire to be kept… and it can happen!
I am a witness… a sometimes complaining witness LOL but it can be done!
Do not settle….you will pay for it EVENTUALLY – it will not be worth it…
