There were many times my body laid with the underserved,
Trying to claim love that was never there.
How many times did I believe in your lies?
Your ďsugar daddyĒ pick-up lines,
Or manipulative ways of seducing in my mind,
Then, my body, into bed.
I have settled for too long.
Accepting the necessities that my body became accustomed to,
My flesh is weakened by unclean thoughts
Which from time to time, I reminisce about,
But no longer does my body make the decisions for my mind.
I stopped settling because Godís man is waiting!
My heart rejoices eve though we havenít met.
My heart, my mind, and my soul
Are comforted by God above.
And He fills me with His unconditional love;
A love that fills every void;
A love that completes me in every way
I no longer settle
Godís man is on the way.
Iím just tired of settling for what I donít deserve. Iíve learned that God has a better man for me when I patiently wait on Godís will. Iíve finally stopped settling for those dead end relationships. I have friends that are in love but the relationships are a dead end. Some men donít want to commit, so, we accept what he has to offer. We stay in the relationship because we donít want to lose him. I say, ďgirlfriend let him go!Ē We have everything else, but his commitment. We have the love, the relationship, the years, and even the child all before we get a real commitment. We must first grow spiritually. By growing together in Christ, there would have been a guaranteed order of things. First, starting as brother and sister in Christ
