The kind of bait you put out determines the type of fish you catch.
It's easy to want attention.
As a woman, it is even easier to find ways of gaining that attention.
But what is it worth in the end?
That gain is neither lasting nor fulfilling.
No guy is going to look at a girl's body and think "Man, I would love to learn about her character and interests."
It breaks my heart to see women throw away their desire to be a lady because they need security in a male now. He pursues her, he wins, no matter his integrity. If she even waits to let him pursue her.
My desire is for a partner. A team.
An outlook that respects, honors, and complements the other's strengths and weaknesses.
Our heart is for the Lord and His kingdom.
We wouldn't be in it just to get what we want from each other.
I know that is God's hope for all of us too.
It's not like these convictions were my idea!
But if I am to boast in anything, let me boast about the beauty my Lord has painted in my life.
His gentle, colorful brush strokes have covered every bit of tarnish and rust.
My Love has filled the holes of brokenness with satisfaction and joy.
I am no longer scrap metal.
Of that, I am certain.
