Sometimes I gotta speak a word to myself, but the stubborn part of me be like… girl, bye. So, I’m going to make this here blog post for YOU and let it be for YOU
and me too.
I woke up on this beautiful Friday… it is Friday, right? I write so much I get my days crossed sometimes.
I woke up this morning in an active mood. I released Rule and Camryn 2 a day early and I wanted to do something productive before I started editing my next release. The bathroom was my first task. I cleaned it from top to bottom all while listening to Eric Bellinger’s latest album.
Although I love all of the songs I’ve heard so far one stood out to me in particular. – Can’t Hurry Love.
Basically, he was saying take your time. Get you right. Wait on the right one. He’s going to take care of you physically and mentally. But mainly his point was that you can’t hurry love.
In my time of singleness I’ve been focusing on myself. Well… my purpose. My career. My books. I’ve been stacking my bread. Expanding my literary inventory. Since I can’t live the love I want I’ve been writing about it.
And all of that is cool… but sometimes I’m like… God, I’m tired of writing about it. I want to live the real thing! Then it doesn’t help when I get on social media and see fifty engagement posts and thirty new babies pahaha.
I’m okay with being single… but what I’ve realized is that there are other areas of my life and myself that need to be worked on besides my pockets!
Which is what led to the petty Kermit meme I created.
There is no point in me praying for my King when I’m not the Queen he will need and deserve. There is no point in me being impatient and getting all in my feelings because I’m tired of being single when I’m not whole and ready for what I’m asking for.
There is no doubt in my mind that I’m going to get him… but I want him when I’m prepared for him. I don’t want to get him and destroy him and what we could have.
So… this is my new prayer as a single woman – God, prepare me for the husband I’ve prayed for. Keep him away from me until I am ready for him. Don’t send him or any leanness to my soul because I’m impatient, stubborn, and annoying. I know I ask for him a lot… a whole lot, but I trust you to bring me to him. I know he’s a great nigg- oop, might not need to say that in this prayer 🙂 he’s a great guy. And I have to be just as great for him! Help me to keep my focus on bettering myself on every level possible. Help to me to keep my focus on bettering my relationship with you. I want no fear, no distractions, and no drama when we finally meet.
Feel free to use this prayer for your own or as a guide for your own.
Feel free to share my meme as well.
Remember – you have to be prepared for what you’re praying for. Otherwise, you won’t even be able to receive or appreciate it.
