Frankly Speaking as a Single She was Beautiful

She was beautiful
She had the face of an Egyptian Queen and the body to match it.

She honored, revered and claimed to love me in a way that I have not witnessed in many moons.

She was highly touted in the land that she came from
Men all over that land would boast of her beauty
Yet her claim was that she was willing to give all her love to me.

As I walked with her down the street, it was not hard to notice the many onlookers that gasped at her beauty.

As the relationship started to blossom, we had entertained the thought of her coming over to my land for the holidays. Those thoughts soon became the making of plans.

These plans continued, until one morning where God awoke me from my sleep to warn me and say, “If you bring that woman over here, you will fall into sin!”

These words trembled my body and soul. It was within these words that I was able to recognize that she was not a blessing from the Lord. I was also able to recognize within these words that an unforbidden pleasure may have been looming.

The call was now clear, obedience or follow my own personal lust. It was through the grace of God that I had a spirit that was open to the hearing of His voice. It is to my shame, that they were words of warning.

I chose obedience and ended the plans. Over the weeks, our telephonic contact slowly died.

Forgive me Lord, for not being sensitive to the calling of your spirit during my encounter with this woman, in order to recognize that she was not a blessing at the time. Thank you for not allowing me to set up some false shields and reinforcements and go by my own strength that I was strong enough to resist the temptation that was before me. Thank you for not allowing this episode to have become a broken testimony. It is in the name of your son, Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

What about you my single brother and sister in Christ, as I mistakenly did, are you entertaining thoughts of being with someone that is not a blessing from the Lord. Have you, as I have become, so caught up into this other person that you are no longer capable of hearing what the spirit is saying.

Take it from me, I have learned that it is better to let go and let it hurt for a little while, rather than continue the relationship and destroy my testimony, thus causing it to hurt for a long time.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

May the grace and strenght of the word uphold you to stick to the purity of obedience to His will at all times my brother. Better hurt a little than hurt perpetually in a mistaken trap of wrong partnership. A necessary and bold warning indeed!

A clear and timely message. I can relate. I liked how you gave evidence of the emotions at the beginning, the attraction. I'd like to see more writing on this topic.
