Where is the Man?
Guest Blogger for today is Lourdy Grace as we continue our series WHAT WOMEN WANT MEN TO KNOW
“Where is the man?” That’s a million dollar question is in it?! for a single woman like me. People asked me this question again and again! But still they get the same answer from me after all these years of my existence! LOL! 😀 My answer will be: “ Ah.. wala pa eh! I am still waiting, praying and trusting for His plans and perfect timing! For sure, whoever God desires for me to have as my husband … he will be the best! Si Lord pa!” (Oh yeah, husband na! J talk about boldness prayer eh! LOL J praying & waiting & trusting God for almost 27 years! Whoever that God desires for me will be my first & my last in Jesus name! I claim, declare, Amen! J )
Throughout the years of waiting and praying and believing for God’s chosen man for me, I’ve listed some characters that I look for a man. Here it is.
1. A man that has the courage to obey, trust and completely throw out himself to God’s perfect plan. Obedience to our Father in Heaven is his game plan. No matter how impossible it is for him to do it. In no doubt, he will certainly do it anyway’ because He loves and trust the Lord with all His heart & soul. He has also has his own plans for his life but He always prays about it before doing it. As what the Bible says: “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” — Proverbs 19:21
2. A man that is simple & loving. More than the physical attributes, I look for a man who is loving, someone who will bring out the best in me and of course someone who will accept also the worst part of me. Hey I am not perfect! No one is. But we have a perfect God so all by God’s grace, I know that God will use our imperfections to all the more, bring glory to His name! Through all of that imperfection that we all have, we acknowledge that “we are nothing without God” And that’s when God starts to do His magnificent work through us, in us and for us! In finding God’s grace, I was reminded by this verse: “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” -Hebrews 4:16
3. A man that is ready to serve & passionate. He is a man full of passion to do whatever God desires him to do, wherever the Lord has put him, either in a work place, or in the ministry, or whatever kind of platform God has called him to be part of, he always puts his whole heart into it. He is a man ready to serve His ultimate Master & to serve His people. Because I do believe that if a man knows His Father in Heaven, he will do his best to seek Him always and forever no matter what season in life he is! For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” -Mark 10:45
I continually journey to this life long season of waiting for that man to come along, I know that in His perfect and beautiful timing, He will let us meet and be together as one! I am just excited and expectant for the Lord! He is a the King <3 And I just want to encourage all the single women out there, waiting sometimes feels too long but in the end but God has a reason why He has not given that man for you… we may not understand His reasons but I am sure, He is writing the best love story that is specially for you! Trust and believe to His perfect plans .. He ONLY WANTS & DESIRES THE BEST FOR YOU! <3
Just continually fixed Your eyes on Jesus in all your days … just like what this verse say .. “ Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:1-2
I will end this blog by answering again that hanging question .. “Where Is the Man?” and my answer is .. “ I still don’t know where, when, how & who exactly he is but I am definitely sure the Lord is preparing both of us for that new season of marriage! I’ll just wait & see on how God will move on both of our behalf! Sounds exciting is in it? 😀 Lord let Your surprising will be done, Amen! J “
