FOR WOMEN ONLY: AN
daughter of Eve,
From pages of
papers to stages of theatres may this word be echoed and transmitted to the
souls of maidens all around the world. May the hearts of the fairer sex be
warmed and inspired by the words of this letter. May your hopes be rekindled
and the embers of faith be evoked to new life from the brutality this world has
laid upon you. For nothing lies farther from the truth than to concede that the
broken hearts you have nothing to do with my kind. Men.
So I write this
on behalf of the willing men of planet earth. I write this to apologise for all the
times of being worthless friends and demonstrating worthless trends.
For all the
times, we men have used your bodies for selfish pleasures; I say we’re sorry.
For times we’ve walked away after getting the carnal desires of our mortal
selves, I say we’re sorry. For all the times of brutal rape and coerced
intimacy, I say we’re sorry. We cannot erase the dirt we placed but we depend
on the greatest man who can. He can.
For all the
times we spoke in anger and hurt your feelings, I say we’re sorry. For times we
struck you with our hands and used your bodies as punching bags, I say we’re
sorry. For all the times we called you names and degraded your self-worth, I
say we’re sorry. For all the times we called you “bitch”, “slut”, “whore” or
any other word that eroded your esteem, I say we’re sorry. We cannot erase the
words we said but we depend on the greatest man to heal your hurts and to
forgive our mouths. He will.
For all the
times we failed to protect you, as brothers, fathers, husbands and lovers, I
say we’re sorry. For all the times we refused to stand up for your welfare and
acknowledge your important position in our lives and in life holistically, I
say we’re sorry. For times we failed to give you hope and times we left you to
do our part, I say we’re sorry. We cannot undo the role we failed to play but
we can aspire to save the day today, tomorrow and by your grace tomorrow. Not
by our strength but by the greatest man who loves you in a way we never can. He
For times we
abandoned you for other women and for times we cheated on you for temporary
happiness, I say we’re sorry. For loving pleasure over responsibility and
demanding submission without giving love, I say we’re sorry. For dancing with
the alcohol bottle and cavorting with drugs and substances and breaking homes,
I say we’re sorry. We cannot recreate what we put asunder but we can make
ourselves better by not just making you number one in our lives but by making
you the ONLY ONE. We do this from the example of the greatest man who asks us
to love you to the point of dying for you. He did.
For times we
played with your hearts and did not define the relationship, for times we
refuted to submit to Almighty God and treated you as worthless goods. For times
we failed to open the door, for times we failed to say we love you so, for
times we didn’t keep our promises and for times we discouraged your hearts for
the hope of marriage (the most beautiful institution in the eyes of GOD
Almighty) we say we’re sorry. We cannot undo a broken heart but we can hope in
the greatest man to give you brand new hearts. He can.
That this letter may be
copied to every lady hurting, broken, hopeless, angry, disturbed, abused,
wounded, upset and rejected. I plead for you to give the greatest man a chance
before you give your heart to the next fleshly man. That you may find true
satisfaction in the Man of Christ before you seek it in a mortal man. That you
may have a hunger for his presence to be made whole before you seek a mere man
to fill that hole. That you may have a thirst for his spirit more than a love
for your selfish needs and desires. That your hearts may he hidden in Christ
such that any man who desires it, must be in HIS
presence first. That through daily time in his word you may
know the worth he places on you and accept a man who loves you as he does; to
the point of death. To trust without walls that he knows the plans He has for
you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. And to submit to His majesty by asking Him to actualize those very plans
including the plan for a marriage that works with a man submitted to Christ.
Take heart, they exist.
All men willing
to put their egos aside and submit to Christ
"The woman was
made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over
him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be
equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved." -Mathew Henry.-
