“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10

It’s a blessing to have someone that has never once hit me, cursed at me, cheated on me, or threatened me. For the 18 years that we’ve been together, he has loved me unconditionally and has been a true gentleman. What did I do to get a man like him? Nothing, really. All I did was chase after God, and in my pursuit of the Lord, Bernard found me. What makes us irresistible and priceless beyond rubies is our completeness in God.

Let him find you pursuing the Lord. Let God complete you.

Prayer: Father God, make me complete in You. Satisfy my soul and fill every place in me. Wrap Your arms around me. Give me a hunger and thirst for You and let me chase after You more than anyone. You are the lover of my soul. Set my eyes and heart toward you. Make me a virtuous woman, Father, and help me understand more what that means. In Jesus name, Amen.

One thought on “Let him find you pursuing the Lord.

  1. Good morning. Thank you for writing this post. It really made me think, especially in light of a book I’ve been reading by Gary Chapman called, The Sacred Search. I’ve also been talking about this a lot with my friends recently because I’m a 34-year old female, single believer. While I certainly appreciate that your testimony is that you felt like you didn’t have to do anything to attract a man, I feel like you DID do something. You were obedient to the Lord. That was the overarching principle, and then I’m sure there were practical steps that you had to walk out that, perhaps unbeknownst to you, caused to you be attractive to your husband. It seems like there are a lot of mixed messages out there in regards to the area of relationships and marriage. If you ask a believer what they did to end up in a great job. Their answer usually isn’t “Nothing, really.” Their obedience to the Lord likely meant going to school to study, networking, applying for the job, asking for guidance during the interview and prayerfully choosing to accept or decline the offer. Someone who took these steps could be seen to be putting their faith into action and no one would question whether or not they were waiting on the Lord. I wish that more young men and women were encouraged to see marriage as an honorable thing that is worth pursing in the same way. I know that every situation is different and I don’t disagree that obedience is required in all circumstances or that our focus should be our relationship with God. I’m just wondering if someone reading this, who is being called to be obedient by creating an online profile would think twice….
