He who finds a [[a]true and faithful] wife finds a good thing and obtains favor and approval from the Lord [Provs 18:22 AMP]What this means is that as a single lady you do not become a wife because you get married, you become a wife before you get married
Funto Ibuoye in the Foreword to the book
Yes, you are so right, this is a book review and yes, no spoilers. The book Lady in Waiting was written by a wonderful young woman called Gbeminiyi Obadan, who also happens to be a lawyer and blogs at Musingsofachristianchick.com . The book is a ten day devotional for single ladies. One thing I have learnt, and the central theme of this book, is that perfection/fulfillment/contentment can only be found in God, not in finding that Prince Charming or Knight in Shining Armour or Tall Dark and Handsome. God is interested in matters of your heart, and emotions, and he wants to be involved in your relationship as well. Do you think you should wait for your husband? What would you be doing while waiting? Does God really care about what I my feelings? Is God concerned about my relationships? If you have been asking yourselves these questions, this ten day devotional is a starting point.
So, what I did was to bring out a quote from each chapter of the devotional, which kind of hits the nail on the head, and they are ten reasons why you should take the next ten days to read this book.
On being a Vessel unto Honour:
The thing about vessels unto honour and dishonor is that they both have uses since they are both vessels
On who the Single Lady should aspire to be:
He who finds a [[a]true and faithful] wife finds a good thing and obtains favor and approval from the Lord [Provs 18:22 AMP
On what it means to be a HelpMeet
Think of yourself as Man2.0, the updated version, not an afterthought by God or a weakling.
On what submission means:
Let your single life be a training ground for submission as you yield to God’s instruction daily.
On the seemingly ordinary fruit of the Garden of Eden:
That is exactly what sin does to man. It gives a false impression of knowledge and makes us believe that we are wise.
