Back To The Basics

First let me start off to say why I chose to do this series on Man/Woman. Recently, many people with blogs have written posts on love, their search for love, heartbreak, asking questions such as why men cheat or why are women gold-diggers, hatred for love, and generally, matters to do with the heart. I have read good books that have shaped my opinions on these things we call relationships and love, so I decided to share. Because if we have no knowledge, we will be ignorant, thereby, miss our way. I hope you enjoy. Feel free to leave your comments. also, they may tend to be long, but well, knowledge is essential.

Let me say here that that I will use the Word of God a lot in these posts and that is because, God created us. What better way to know about oneself than to go back to Him who created us? Think about it for a minute. You buy a fan like Bimbylads did from ASDA (hiiiiiii girl lol), and without knowing what parts go where or what screws go in where, you start to assemble your fan...I bet you at some point you will get frustrated. Even men have been known to pick up manuals. It is only the smartest and easiest thing to do. The manufacturer put the manual there for use, not decoration.
SO also, we need to go back to Him who created us...for the manual.

People are sooo confused as to what and who they are, or what their purposes are. If you don't know your purpose, you will misuse or abuse yourself. If I don't know what a car was designed for, I might decide to start living in it, hanging my clothes from the steering wheel and doing ridiculous things with it, when the car was designed to transport me from one point to another. Also, if you dont know what your purpose is in life, you will abuse yourself. If you don't know what a man or a woman's purpose is in life, you will abuse or misuse her.

Think about it,

why do we want relationships? why are some women so unrelenting in their search for a man? why are some women never fulfilled unless they are in a relationship even if it is a meaningless one? why are some men so uncaring that all they want from a woman is just sex? why do some men find it difficult to commit and as long as they can have sex with a woman, that's all they need?
It is because we do not know the purpose of a man or a woman in our lives.

God is a God of purpose. He predetermined everything and made everything with a purpose. He made the sun to produce light, He made water for what's its purposes are, He made every single thing with a purpose. Including man and woman. You are not an experiment, you are a purposed being, so why experiment with your life? Not every purpose is known to man, that is why we need to have a relationship with God so that He can guide us and reveal our purposes to us as we go on in life.

Let's go back to the beginning.. back to when God decided to create man. He said 'Let us make man in Our image, according to Our Likeness' - Gen 1:26. God is Spirit so He created us in His image which means our real selves are our spirits. He then made bodies for the spirits to dwell in and gave them souls so they can have a mind to think, feel and make decisions. God is Love, and Love cannot be experienced until it is given away, until it is shared. So He made Man in His image and likeness to have fellowship or relationship with him. That is why He came down in the evening back in the days of Eden to chat with Adam and Eve. There was a relationship, a connection, the way it was intended to be. Then that relationship got severed and things got out of hand. Man (both man and woman now) lost his purpose. Man received consequences for his actions that will forever change the way things would be.

I will continue in a later post. I intend to make this a regular post until I have exhausted my references so you know when to come here for updates, so mondays and fridays?

Linda Ikeji said...

love is such a complicated thing...but it's beautiful when you find the right person...trust me mimi no matter how much you think, talk and write about it...you still won't understand love... I dont understand it, i dont know anyone who does...just enjoy when u find and dont try to over analyse it...only God knows why he created love, sex etc.It's beyond us. i'll be coming back for updates...

Favoured Girl said...

Well done for starting this series. So many of us are still wondering why God put us on this planet. And without developing a relationship with Him, we'll never fully discover what we are meant to be or get the best from our relationships. Hope this series enlightens and inspires everyone who reads it. God bless you.
