I was sitting in the hair dresser’s chair, it’s been ten years ago now, as the stylist excitedly shared about her latest live-in boyfriend.
As she recalled all the “broken road” details that led her straight to him, she said, “He’s a gift from God, no doubt.”
And those words have hung there in my heart and still bother me a decade later.
Because, really girls, if he’s a gift from God, wouldn’t he draw you closer to God? Wouldn’t God send you a man who endeavors to protect your purity, inspire your walk, and challenge your spiritual complacency.
Maybe this man with whom you are so enamored is not, in fact, a gift from God… but a “gift” from someone else entirely, maybe simply some juicy bait hiding a hook?
So just a thought today… a little hornet’s nest stirring. [And a little heart stirring for some maybe too?]
Because really, girls, if a gift is from God, it will lead you closer to Him.
