I was supposed to see someone yesterday. But then something happened and it just didn’t work out. We had to reschedule for another time.
But the above is not the essence of this post, it just got me thinking of the times before now when I liked someone and became so eager for us to see each other that I actually took the bull by the horns and went out to meet them-mistake number 1, signaling desperation to the man, signaling me pursuing him.
This time, things are different.
Ruth’s story in the Bible today… after laying the cards on the table for Boaz when she went to meet him at the threshing floor, she told Naomi what happened and Naomi told her to “sit back and relax”, that Boaz will do all it takes that day. And I just smiled when I read that. The mistake I made in the past was that I refused to sit down and relax. The man should work it all out, he is the pursuer, he is the one going after what he wants.
You know, after Ruth told Boaz to redeem her and marry her, he felt so honored, he said she was a prize and he swore to do all it took to marry her if the closest relative before him refused. And that’s how it should be.
Ladies, we’ve given the man green light, we’ve been open, we’ve talked, then “sit back and relax”, if that man sees you as a prize, he will pursue you as he should, yes he will.
Why? Because we know what men like Boaz do when they want a woman…Like Boaz they say “as God lives, I will do it”
They do not drag their feet when they know what a prize they have, they do not let you slip away.
Like Naomi said, when a man who is as serious as Boaz comes around, “he wont fool around, he will get everything wrapped up”.(msg version, Ruth 3:18)
Know your worth.
Take Naomi’s advice as I did yesterday- “sit still, be patient, sit back and relax”
If the man is serious about you, as God lives, he will do all it takes to have you.
If he is not serious about you, then as God lives, another man that is serious about you will come around, yes, as God lives, God will bring him around.
Yes he will.
Please read the whole of Ruth in the message version if you have not read it yet, it is just four chapters and full of lessons!. If I had time I would have run the series on lessons I got from it like I did with lessons from my favourite love story here- https://imperfectlyperfect92.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/lessons-from-my-favourite-love-story-1/ …maybe after bar exams. *fingers crossed*
