"You can’t commit to someone that’s not committing – for you to commit to someone, they’ve got to commit to you, otherwise you’re uncommitted."
Committed: to pledge or engage oneself; to give in trust or charge; consign; to consign for preservation; to pledge (oneself) to a position on an issue or question; express (one's intention, feeling, etc.); to bind or obligate, as by pledge or assurance; pledge; to entrust, especially for safekeeping; commend
Amazing how many women are in relationships all by themselves all because they don't understand the *pure wisdom* behind that quote. Amazing how many women *waste* days of their lives that they won't ever get back by not *requiring* a commitment (especially if you're past 35, a boyfriend for years is *not* a healthy commitment!). Amazing how often most of us overlook the fact that no where in the Word, which is Adonai (John 1:1), does it tell us that we should commit to a man before committing to the Lord, therefore (wow!) putting us in uncommitments because we're uncommitted :
"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass."---Psalm 37:4-5(NKJV)
"Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established."---Proverbs 16:3(NKJV)
"Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator."---I Peter 4:19(NKJV)
Amazing how devastated a lot of women end up being all because they entrusted their time, their heart, their plans to a *person* rather than the Lord. FIRST. He is the best gatekeeper, heart-tenderer, boundary-establisher, need-meeter, want-giver...MATE SELECTOR.
The cool thing about doing things in a decent order (I Corinthians 14:40) is that you can *be sure* that if you commit to Elohim, the Godhead is a male entity that will readily, totally and undoubtedly commit to you. With them you can be in a safe, sacred and secure committed relationship and with their help, they will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that your covenant partner *commits* to no less!
Well...I'm off to complete the piece of chameleons.
In the meantime...stay committed.
