The church is marriage oriented-a lady walks into the church to worship God- the pastors are rather interested in prophesying to her for the perfect man. Publications about marriage in the church are celebrated like one who has made it in life. Lots of ‘marriage are good messages’ like this doesn’t allow believers to see marriage as an institution of responsibility but rather as a place for fanfare.
Our society is so programmed in such a way that it yearns to live people’s lives for them. There’s an imaginary timeline it draws for her members. For instance, in Nigeria, once a youth is done with tertiary institutions or at most after serving the fathers land in NYSC, such person is thought to be ready for marriage.
A retrospection through the fantasy of the pre-adult phase of my life, when I’d often find myself with friends of likeminded rehearsing on who we would love to marry future. Sometimes we even mentioned names; funny memories they are.
More fantasy yet was in my early adulthood. I could still see myself encumbered by the thought of who to marry. I’d have a lot of mind swing. Today, I’m well pleased by Sister
The creation of heaven and earth and all it hosts in a time in eternity; the beginning, is one of the most astounding expression of the Glory of God and a deep mystery.
“You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with their entire host, the earth and all that are on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them and the heavenly host bows down before you.
More astounding Glory still was expressed in the creation of man, who even though he is not the strongest physically, there-in him contained all that is needed to control the other creatures. Indeed, man is the crown of God’s creation and a deeper mystery.
And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creped upon the earth. …
Yet, even more astounding is the creation of woman. The deepest of mystery. God essentially said that man was not adequate, to highlight the high position and ne
SO WHO IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN?
True beauty lies not in looking good, but in being good. To be truly beautiful, the necessary parameters are qualities of love, kindness, joy, peaceable, compassion, forgiveness and honesty. These are not common, as compared to external adornment, and hence are rarer to come by.
A beautiful woman is a woman that is full and empowered in the Holy Ghost. A woman with a life that encourages inspires and empowers others. A confident woman satisfied in her uniqueness and focused in making a difference and leading others in the light of her uniqueness.
There are three virtues that form the pods upon which every lasting relationship is built. They are:
These virtues are all indispensable but not all equally important.
Inarguably, Biblical LOVE; agape love, is the most important because it believes all things and honors others. As we read in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians quoted in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7which reads thus;
Beauty is one of the concepts in humanity that is thought to be extremely individualized. Besides the dictionary’s definition of beauty, there is yet no generalised definition for beauty. Perhaps, as there seems to be no defined parameters for describing beauty outside the confines of relativism. So, the Oxford Dictionary definition of beauty is ‘a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight’.
The motivation for this article is the fact that every woman is uniquely beautiful, desirable, and is an epitome of beauty in her own right. And just like the familiar definitions for beauty, ‘beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’, which
Giving of gifts in relationships in such senses as a way of expressing love is one of the key areas of irregularities and misconceptions just the same way the concept of love is often misconstrued. The misconceptions about giving gifts in a relationship are parallel with the various misconceptions about Love.
A man must understand the importance of building dignity and honor around women. The proverb 31 man cultivated the influence of his wife and released her.
Ladies take guys word too seriously. Guys can say something now and tomorrow they’ve forgotten; Especially when under influence. Though they are not like ladies that are influenced by biological cycles They still have their own cycle_like success, failure, happy mood, loneliness(especially), crisis and idleness too. Daughter: So true
Someone can pray for oneself; I used to pray and try to be friends to people like they are my siblings. And learn to feel free when people say words like: ‘I love you’. Just say ThANK YOU, That’s one way to show is nothing. To say I love You actually is nothing is just because we are in an African setting. Daughter: Yes ooh! Our society made it so as you say. Father: When one loves YOU he goes beyond the words to make it work. Love is meant to be expressed and not merely confessed. However when ladies say I ‘love you’. It means a lot so they hardly say it.
Life of relationship is like a Ladder, Everyone is trying to reach up. So the realities that Someone will be aiming to have the expression of his love accepted by another somewhat higher While someone somewhere lower is wishing to have him take his love expression. The implication of this is on the ladies whose integrity it is to say yes. A lady must not give herself cheaply to any guy… That does not imply doing preventive shakara. But it does mean not falling for a guy/putting your heart in it until he proves and makes it work.
