Settling. That's what we call it. Why do smart, beautiful, Christian girls take the immediate rather than wait for someone worthy of them? I ask myself this question often. Maybe it's the wanna-be-soccer-mom person that I am, but each time I see a girl settling for a guy who devalues her, I feel a parental pang of sadness. The truth is: I know exactly why they settle. I know why girls take the guy in front of them instead of waiting to see if something better is yet to come. I know the motive because I've been there - and now I'm on the other side of the dating game. Married, my husband and I think of our younger selves and say: "If only you knew what God had in store." Two Ends of the Spectrum I have seen two very unhealthy perspectives when it comes to dating and marriage: the first is an overemphasis on marriage as an end-all, achievement, or goal. It is the idea that life 'begins' when we marry.This mentality makes marriage an idol and man a god, removing our effectiveness as individual persons. The second perspective is a complete distaste for marriage (often as a reaction to overemphasis), excessive independence and an attitude of 'swearing off' men or marriage in general. This mentality acts as if marriage is man's idea, not God's, and scorns God's design for relationship. It is another form of idolatry: the idolatry of independence and self-discovery. Neither is healthy, as is the case with most extremes. In between these two we find women waffling between a desire to be desired and the drive to be individual. But that drive is tempered by a prick in the back of her mind that if - just if - the right man were to show up, would she be in a position to accept him into her life? Would her individual pursuits have alienated her prospects? So before we delve into why we settle and why we shouldn't be settling, here are a few thoughts: It is not wrong to want to be desired. It is not wrong to be independent, strong, and individualistic (in fact it is healthy). We were created for companionship, but that companionship is for life. We have to say 'no' to the lesser in order to say 'yes' to the best. God-honoring relationships require absolute trust and unshakeable faith. Want to be Wanted Woman is beautiful and her body was designed in such a way to please the eye. Man was designed to be visual (in a perfect world, this visual nature would be dedicated to his wife alone). Though both men and women desire one another and need affirmation, a woman's 'want to be wanted' creates in her a drive to please, to be valued, and to be affirmed that she is capable, beautiful, and acceptable for who she is.

Jesus: “Yes, Elijah has come before the Throne of God a few times when meeting various people God has selected for certain things.” He was laughing. “Erin, let’s put it this way. You were very worldly at this point so it was difficult for Elijah to imagine God using you for such a task. God rebuked Elijah when he showed him what you would become and how He was going to get you here.” I was speechless. rapturecode.com/sparrow-s-recent-dreams Heaven Dream - Oceans and Almond Branch #102

Satanists monument: The Ten Commandments monument outside the Oklahoma state Capitol in Oklahoma City.
This is what happens people. Your Christianity is not the only religion out there!!! You open that door be prepared for what walks through it.....separation of church and state is essential. Satanist or Christianity. It's all nonsense- Satanists want statue beside Ten Commandments monument at Oklahoma Legislature - U.S. News
You want to open up the door to religion sanctioned by the government? You have to open it to every religion. Satanists want statue beside Ten Commandments monument at Oklahoma Legislature - U.S. News
In their zeal to tout their faith in the public square, conservatives in Oklahoma may have unwittingly opened the door to a wide range of religious groups, including Satanists who are seeking to put their own statue next to a Ten Commandments monument outside the Statehouse via @Jill Jackson Norris TODAY
Gov’t Officials Vote to Remove Ten Commandments Monument From Oklahoma Capitol Grounds After ACLU Battle
Oklahoma satanists want a statue at the statehouse. The NY based Satanic temple is demanding its own statue beside one displaying the Ten Commandments currently on the steps of the Statehouse in Oklahoma City.
Satanic Temple Unveils Baphomet Statue For Oklahoma - The Satanic Temple's seven-foot-tall Baphomet statue, complete with beatific children gazing at it lovingly, is just about ready to take its place on the Oklahoma Statehouse
Satanic Temple Monument in Okla. May Include ‘Interactive Display’ for Kids - ABC News-A monument to the Ten Commandments that sits outside the Oklahoma statehouse may soon have some unholy company. Satan worshipers are seeking to build their own monument at the state Capitol, and Lucien Greaves, a spokesman for the Satanic Temple, said he’s “optimistic” it will be approved. “I really don’t see a grounds which they can reject this,” he told ABC News. The privately funded Ten Commandments monument was approved by the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature in 2009, and erected on Capitol grounds in 2012. It has riled up opponents ever since, many calling into question the constitutionality of the monument. But Greaves does not see a problem with the Christian monument, as long as it does not stand alone. “I feel that the statue is only problematic when it stands alone,” Greaves said. “It would change the dynamic with our monument there. We aren’t objecting to the Ten Commandments monument, we’re objecting to the monument standing alone.” When asked what the Satanic monument would look like, Greaves said he doesn’t want to “reveal too much about the possible design options,” but hinted that his “favorite design, at the moment, is an interactive display for children.” The American Civil Liberties Union has been less accepting of the existing monument, and has filed a lawsuit seeking its removal. “The monument’s placement at the Capitol has created a more divisive and hostile state for many Oklahomans,” Ryan Kiesel, executive director of ACLU Oklahoma, said in a statement. “When the government literally puts one faith on a pedestal, it sends a strong message to Oklahomans of other faiths that they are less than equal.” But Greaves said he believes a monument from the Satanic Temple would re-assert that “we all have a voice” in this “religiously pluralistic nation.” State Rep. Mike Ritze, a Republican representing Oklahoma’s 80th District, spearheaded the efforts to create the Ten Commandments monument. Ritze’s family also helped pay for the construction of the $10,000 structure. Ritze could not comment because of the impending ACLU lawsuit. Though this would be the first monument of its kind for the Satanic Temple, the group has been active in the past to push public displays of religion. The temple held its first major rally in February to support Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s signing of a bill allowing the possibility of student-led prayer in the state’s public schools. “The Satanic Temple embraces the free expression of religion, and Satanists are happy to show their support of Rick Scott who … has re-affirmed our American freedom to practice our faith openly, allowing our Satanic children the freedom to pray in school,” the Temple said in a February statement announcing the rally.

Confessions of a Mormon Bishop - I have learned that a habit of one brief moment of spirituality a day can alter one’s entire direction. I have learned those preoccupied with serving others have less time to count their problems. I have learned that to be happy is a choice. I have learned that there’s more sadness in this world than I had realized. I have learned there is more goodness in this world than I had realized. I have learned that affection from parents profoundly affects children....

1971 Stanford simulation prison study shows that we all have capacity for evil. The study which placed 24 students into 24/7 position of "guards and prisoners" was cut short after 6 days due to abusive behaviour of "guards" and extreme emotional stress of "prisoners", and goes a long way to explain how ordinary people can rapidly become cruel & brutal in certain situations (Abu Ghraib, POW & concentration camps). www.prisonexp.org / www.lucifereffect.com

http://youtu.be/VPbDZnrxBLM The still, small, quiet, penetrating voice of the Spirit whispers. Popular music, radio shows, computer games, television programs, or inordinate use of other media for instance can sometimes reduce our ability to receive spiritual promptings. Often the Lord can’t get through to us because we’re distracted, not seeking, or not listening for His voice. We need to turn the world’s noise down, or turn it off, and enjoy the peace that the Holy Ghost can bring.
