Jessie's Got a Man

Y’all remember that old Chante’ Moore song that goes “Chante’s got a man at home and he’s so good to me.”  That was the jam back in the day!  I just recently heard it when I was driving down the street and I was all into it!  Singing loud, acting like I was singing to my man, and embarrassing my kids to fullest extent.  So as I’m grooving I started really tuning in on the lyrics and one line she said was “It hurts me that your man’s leaving you all alone.”  Then I instantly started thinking about how as women (single women more specifically), we stay down for our earthly men.  We take care of these boyfriends who in some ways always seem to let us down.  We dedicate so much of ourselves to men who barely give us half of them.  We get caught up in this complex that we NEED a man, so we settle for the things that aren’t best for us.  So as I’m thinking this thought my mind starts to thinking about my man.  As Salt N Pepa once said “What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man. Yes he is!”  I started thinking about my God. 

Let’s look at His track record.  In His word it says He will never leave you nor forsake you.  2 Thessalonians 3:3 says “But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.”  So that’s confirmation that He protects you.  Psalms 86:15 told us that “But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”  So that means His love is unwavering.  In Jeremiah it says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”  So not only will He provide for you but He is always available to you.  He wants to see good for you.  He wants to love you.  What a man!

I got a man ladies!! He’s not your average kind of guy.  He’s literally perfect.  So let’s stop settling so much and give in to the one Man who will never let us down.  Father thank You for being such a good man!
