Why I decided to date Jesus.
We as women have that natural Proverbs 31 woman burning inside of us that wants to be unleashed. Yes we want to take care of someone, we want to have a home, we want to have someone special in our lives. That is how God wired us and its nothing wrong with that. The problem is the Proverbs 31 woman locked up inside of you becomes that Worldy 31 woman because we don’t know how to wait on God and allow him to develop us into that woman because it’s a process.
Unwrap your legs from that relationship (situation-ship)
We as women can get so caught up in finding a soul mate and dating. We decide that we know what’s best in our dating lives and a lot of the time we end up hurt. We have this habit of looking for a man or going out to get a little boo when its cuffing season, not realizing that “He who finds a wife finds a good thing.”
Now I’m not saying be camped up in that bed watching Netflix with roller sets talking about you waiting for yo boaz… I aint say that. What I am saying is that we have to build and develop a relationship with God first.
We have to stop allowing the devil to play with our minds and stop allowing our flesh to lead us into bad decisions as well as relationships. Why? Because God never ordained that relationship. Also , truth be told you have to take some of the blame off of the devil. Yes he may have put the THOUGHT in your head to fall but… YOU carried out the action.
My testimony…. Well like %1 of it.
Like so many other women out there I got tired. I got tired of men using me for sex, company, and even money. I finally listened to God when he told me that I am beautiful, fearfully, and wonderfully made. I finally realized that I would no longer allow a man to take me on worthless dates that ended with sex, lies, and sometimes anger.
I DECIDED that I was going to date Jesus and allow him to show me the way a man should treat me. I DECIDED that I would date with purpose. Not only that, but develop the intimacy and beauty of a close relationship with God. I wanted to know God on a deeper level. I want God to be my friend. I want him to be confidant. I don’t want him to be a magic genie in the bottle in my life. I’m not tryna pimp God out. (Don’t act up… Yall know what I mean by pimp God out.. You know how you give a little 2 second prayer and read that verse a day like you did something then turn around and ask him for something like its cool… But imma follow 1 Thessalonians and mind my business)
I want to know God . The in’s and outs. Call me crazy but I want to know God’s favorite color, I want to know what type of movie he likes , I just want to be his daughter and know him.
That’s my testimony but I had to woman up .
(Oh yall aint gone like this… but idc 😊 . ) In order for some real deliverance and healing to occur you have to WOMAN UP. Truth of the matter is… I’m pretty sure that every man that I have dated that hurt me God told me NO! Either it was sign, a dream, or a prophetic word.. God got the message to me I just hit return to sender. You have to WOMAN UP , go to God, and tell him something like , “You know what God? Like I really messed up. You told me no I didn’t listen and I am hurt. But Lord I am taking this moment to lay all of my problems at your feet and I am giving this pain to you.”
Rules of Engagement
Understand that when you date Jesus.. there is no side boo ! (oh come on and turn to your neighbor and say “NEIGHBOR THERE IS NO SIDE BOO!”)
See I tried to date Jesus with a side boo before… it aint work . The side boo became my main boo and Jesus was not having it … can you say wrath ? It’s just you and Jesus until God releases you to be Ruth until then go hide up in that cave Elijah . Also , dating Jesus is more than learning how to date for a husband. Its about not filling voids with murky things. During this process you’re going to realize all of the things that you used to fill voids like money , sex , men , weed (yuppppp don’t act like some of yall don’t smoke.. I know . I aint always been saved now).
When the void is empty and there is no weed , money, boo , bae , daddy (don’t act like yall don’t be calling yo man daddy) , baby , and all that other stuff you begin to realize that you have little holes inside of you that needs repair. When dating Jesus, the Holy Spirit will come in, fill, and repair those holes. When you got a side boo you can’t be repaired because that side boo is the road block for the Heaven Construction Workers.
Aye fam…. Look..We in this together..
Look man I AM NOT PERFECT … ok ? I need continuous deliverance and healing just like you. We are in this together. Aye we tryna be lit for the kingdom. We are going to make it … We have to focus , keep our eyes , and mind stayed on Jesus.
Yes, there will be times that you cry, you feel lonely, you HATE .. I mean HATE the current emotional state that you’re in… But think about it this why… After you have surgery why do they give you drugs? Because they know the process of the procedure hurts ! and they know your body will feel that pain before you get better …
You might get a little gull (read ‘cha bibles) but nah like God really about to expose YOU to YOU because he wants YOU healed. So its ok to embrace the suck but like I said we in this together. So come and enjoy this journey of dating Jesus with me.
