About to Get Real

Read 1 Corinthians 7:9

This is about to get real, so if you can’t handle it, just skip today’s commentary. Having been a sexually immoral woman for eleven years, my return to faith necessitated in my mind a large urgency for marriage. I did not want to be drawn back to my homosexual life simply because I couldn’t exercise self-restraint (1467). I felt pretty confident that I wouldn’t fall with a man as I’d never been with one anyway so holding them at bay (if I’d ever had the need) seemed plausible. I did not want to be a dog returning to its vomit (Proverbs 26:11 & 2 Peter 2:22). Therefore when I returned to my faith I explained to God, as if He didn’t know, that I’d need a husband. I explained that I still wasn’t too keen on men and so therefore I didn’t really want to date a bunch of them to find “the one.” I instantly locked on to one I’d known a long time and had actually found attractive even as a lesbian. However, that was not to be as he was adamant that the goods had to be sampled prior to commitment. Thusly, I created a list of the things I felt were necessary for my tolerance of a husband. I was informed by a then friend, that Chris Mink fit my list. I’m still not sure he does but he is my husband now and so I guess he fit the things God needed him to fit. We didn’t even kiss until our wedding. My purity was restored upon returning to the King who’d never left my side even in the pigpen and He’s richly blessed me ever since.

Father, thank You for providing us with what we need because You know better than we do. In Jesus’ Name I praise You. Amen.
