All they’ve ever told us was to find a woman who fits
A woman who aligns with our purpose, who wouldn’t be a setback
One who will help us fulfil our dreams, who fits our temperaments
One who is not necessarily called to the Apostolic ministry
So that while we are away saving the world
She can keep the home going strong; they call this destiny,
But then, I’ve been wondering…
How about we find a lady in whose purpose we fit in
A lady in whose life, our presence guaranties fulfilment
A lady we can help, strengthen, and lead
A lady for whom we don’t mind making sacrifices, losing some opportunities
Just to see her conquer the world-her world
Just to see her name in the annals of the Great
Your purpose in life is as important as mine
It is for us both, that Christ is ‘risen’
Fulfilling mine is as certain as water,
It’s a pact I’ve made with destiny
It’s yours that I’m concerned about
I would have failed if you don’t achieve it
So please do me a favor
Dream big, dream wide and wild
Discover yourself, and believe in You
Fulfil purpose and do me the honor
Of, at least, being the husband
Of the first female president of Nigeria
Or the woman who transformed the economy of Africa
Or the one who took Christ beyond the confines of Christianity
Or the one who raised the conquerors of the generation to come
Or whatever, just something beyond the norm
For in Christ, there’s neither male nor female
Both our dreams are important
“Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.
Eph 5:25-28 MSG.

Thank you so much. That was encouraging.
Very deep words Sir. I have always wondered why we teach our men that their purposes are superior to their women’s when in Christ, there is equity of genders.
I always dream of the day my woman will be the keynote speaker in an international event and I will be the first in the audience to give her a round of applause at the end of her speech.
It was the purposelessness of Eve that put mankind in trouble in the beginning. Otherwise, she would not have had the time to talk to a serpent!
