I recently heard two troubling stories that wont let me be until I tell them to you and you understand the reason for my relentless campaign.
The One-hit Pregnacy
The first is about my friend’s little sister who found out last week that she was pregnant by a man who spread his sperm and led the church choir with equal skill. My friend’s sister is a junior designer in an advertising agency here in Acccra. This guy is a senior designer from a sister-agency. She’s twenty-four, and only a few months into a real working life, bt if you could see her Facebook page and her delectable pictures eh! Her pictures are the kind that good men linger on a bit longer in their moments of weakness.
No mincing words; she’s sexy, she knows it and she flaunts it. She’s not a bad bad girl, maybe just one of thousands of women who wont admit that they thrive on the attention of men. She’s not lose either. Liberal -maybe- but not lose. Her short skirts and hot pants don’t necessarily mean easy access. What she was, was a bit too trusting in her ability to discern a jerk from a gentleman.
Look I’m a guy and I’ll tell you straight, you’re funny if you think you can rely on your vast experience with men, your numerous brothers & countless male friends to become an expert in telling a great guy from a hit-and-run one. You know why? Because most of the time when the guy is dying to be with you, sharing his devotions and encouraging you to join a department in church, he’s oblivious to his own lust. The level of ‘lustaine’ he’s on is too pure and too high-grade for even him to tell that all he’s after is sex. It’s after he’s had you that it occurs to him that what had been driving him the whole time was a spoon-full of overzealous tiny white soldiers. He feels just as sorry as you feel used, but does that unscoop deposits? Heck no!
That’s what happened to my friend’s precious little sister. This guy took her to check out houses they should consider renting after marriage. He sent her memory verses in the morning. He never forced himself on her. His hair was even sportin waves, but he was just too fertile for his own good, because after one session p3, chic ‘took stomach’. She found out a month after when the cramps she so dreaded became the pain she was all too willing to live with in exchange for the fear of pregnancy.
This guy said he wasn’t the one. He said yes, he did some mome, but he suspects she’d been with someone (maybe days before him) and was blaming him rather.
O na wo b3 ka?
He requested scans, retests and they had text battles and heated exchanges. As we speak, the guy is still screaming the injustice of being responsible for a pregnancy with a girl you only slept with ONCE! Especially when you don’t really love her and your true fiancé is finishing her masters in the States in May this year. Very mean and hurtful things were said, and now the once-bubbly designer is so distant, so sad, so withered.
Point is; you need something more sophisticated than all the technology, experience and male friends this world has to really tell the heart of a man…you need the Holy Spirit, and not just because it’s the Christian thing to do, it’s so in your own selfish interest! With HS on full throttle, you can tell the heart of a man from one conversation!
The Infidelity Poison
So apparently, the reason why there are more heartbroken women in asylums than there are men is because the men just kill themselves. When a man’s ego is so crushed and his wild love is quashed and trashed, insanity is the junction his brakes fail to stop at. It happened to my friend’s work colleague the other day, and here’s story no. 2. So well, this’ a guy who was better looking than me, wore nicer socks and literally lit up every room he entered. I never knew him personally, but I’m lit up just writing about him.
This guy married a hot girl who was satisfied not by size, but by multiplicity. In her mind, if two heads are better than one, then surely a dozen******* (I’m unable to finish).Of all the heart-wrenching tales that emerged of her blatant infidelity was the fact that he even caught her sleeping with their marriage counselor.
I think his mistake was one of misapplied faith; believing he could change a terminal woman. Never more have I cherished the serenity prayer;
- God, give me grace to accept with serenity
- the things that cannot be changed,
- Courage to change the things
- which should be changed,
- and the Wisdom to distinguish
- the one from the other.
Sometimes, the biggest mistake we make is refusing to let go of the one person we love the most, even when all the signs point to how meaningless we are to the person. We shut out reason and limit God’s ability to make us happy to one human. But you see people are just taps God opens to let things get to us. If your person is proving to be like an Adenta tap which flows annually, then allow him to move you to Kaneshie, where people don’t even own Polytanks. When you walk down an aisle, you’re signing one of two things; a death warrant, or release papers to live and be all you dreamed off. Watch the space and sign wisely.
So two things guys; you need something more sophisticated than all the technology, experience and male friends this world has to really tell the heart of a man; you need the Holy Spirit. Also, be fully spiritual about who you’re thinking of spending your life with. Let the ones who want to go go! Trust God to fix you up nature fresh! lol. Peace out.
