Seriously, where is the Proverbs 31 guy?Sure, it is the chapter from the book of wisdom that every girl who's ever come within a 10 mile radius of a bible study has ever read. It's about how a Godly woman should aspire to be. But are those things not 100% applicable to men, too?
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."Why can't you substitute man in there? "A man who fears the Lord is to be praised."
That's not God's plan. God's plan is for a man who isn't falling over drunk; who isn't just looking for a little fun; who isn't on the prowl. His plan is for someone who is respectful; someone who is disciplined; someone who is going to be the spiritual leader of a family one day. Someone who loves in a 1 Corinthians 13 way, as cliche as it may sound. I just don't see that out there a lot. I think it finally clicked for me last night. I was out, and I just looked around at all of these people and thought, of all of the perfectly dressed guys who look exactly like what I picture in my head as my "perfect type," I realized how completely ubiquitous they all seemed. A dime a dozen. No, I don't want that, I want the good-Christian-leader-of-a-family-respectful-mature-disciplined guy. I can tell you right now, it's a lot harder to find, but God's plan is perfect, and it is worth the wait. This little rant might cost me some fun, but oh well, who cares?
I don't want a dime a dozen, I want one in a million.
