The Book of Ruth: Finding #Love The Biblical Way {Finding Boaz Part I}

Previous Post:  ”Boaz, the good man”

I am a romantic at heart. No, I am not a romance novelist. However, every book that I have written has a romantic element. I am a fan of love. I love seeing happy couples together and cringe when I see unhappy couples tolerating one another—I see that a lot. When I read the book of Ruth, I was fascinated. They actually dated in biblical times. Who knew? Seriously, I read it and I want to share what I learned. I don’t know how long this series will last, but I will keep going until it is done.

Finding Boaz may seem as hard as finding Waldo or Carmen San Diego, but it really isn’t that hard. The Bible says that a man that finds a wife finds a good thing. So Boaz is looking for you. The probably is that Boaz has less of a clue about finding you than you do about finding him.

Oddly enough, you may have already met Boaz, but circumstances made you two passing ships in the night. Sorry for the cliché. Two ways to look at this, you may come across your Boaz again or you may find another. There is more than one Boaz in the sea—but watch out for the sharks. That’s why you have to WATCH and PRAY. I am a living witness that prayer will change things. I have had prayers that I have given up on, but God never forgot my prayer. He answered it on his time schedule—which just so happened to be the perfect time for me.

Now I am not one to suggest prayer without action. I think the action is very important, but in this post, that is the only action I am going to ask you to do—well pray, don’t doubt and don’t give-up.

Faith is key.

But I wanted to address in this post a question you may ask yourself. “Why do I need to do anything? Shouldn’t my man find me?” You are single, sexy and satisfied. You are right to believe that any man would be lucky to have you. There is nothing wrong with thinking that way .But to be honest, it is inefficient and an illogical way of finding love.

Yes, there is a place for logic in love.

Anyway, most of the women that I have come across who felt this way, ironically lacked confidence. They were using that as an excuse to mask their fear of approaching a man. One of the most confident and beautiful women I have ever met, approached me.  She had a lioness’ aggression. It was subtle and powerful.

I don’t want to give you the impression that you have to become ultra-aggressive, but there is room for aggression.  See the battlefield has changed and so has the rules. There has always been a place for aggression but it has to be used in its proper place. Those who think that it is fundamentally wrong to roll up their sleeves and get busy, end up alone.

I am ending the post here, but I will be back Tuesday.
