Really, really wonderful, 'Flesh will lead you into romance, but flesh will lead you out.' Being 19 i have little to worry about in terms of love, though i'm a romantic at heart. When i see friends in happy relationship a healthy envy for a relationship like theirs takes root, however i feel that one must be willing to give up the infatuation/dreams to God before they are ready to take a woman as his wife. That way the two are strong enough to put God first in that relationship!

The Big Story #6: God's Church

Rounding off our big Bible overview we look to the conclusion of the story and what we need to do to get there. God has chosen us to play a part in it, but how? What does it mean to be God's church?

The Big Story #5: God's Son

It all points to Him, everything that had come before, the promises, the prophecies, the people. Here we reach the climax of God's story in a person, God's son, Jesus Christ. We don't understand him until we see how he fits into what's come before.

The Big Story #3: God's Kingdom

The Big Story #3: God's Kingdom

Look around the world and we see kings, presidents, leaders who are very much flawed. Israel had a king - God, but they wanted a human king. We look at how that worked out for God's people.

The Big Story #2: God's People

God's story is both cosmic in scope and intimate in care, we see that as he chose to fulfil his purposes in a family. But why did God choose Abraham and the people of Israel to be the ones who would be a blessing to the whole world?

So my Son

So my son,

you want to love a woman?

far more to it than at first it seems

more than butterflies and dreams

can you tell me the difference between

being “in love” with a lady

and actually loving her? Yes? No? Maybe?

to really love a woman takes grace

more than just falling for a pretty face

and those coy mascaraed eyes

which can leave you feeling mesmerised

and those lips pressed in gentle smile

for a kiss from those you’d crawl a mile

and to us men it’s a feminine riddle

how as her mouth says little

her beauty shouts all the more

and have you felt your heart get sore?

as you tremble and fear

that to your side she won’t draw near?

have you prayed that your love she’ll reciprocate?

the torment of your soul alleviate?

her eyes and smile can do all this

but love is more than emotive bliss

though her angelic face is a gift from above

there’s so much more you must learn of love

I know your eyes have begun to trek

you’ve started to notice south of her neck

as your mind with hormones doth swarm

you watch her intoxicating form

now men talk of “perky boobs” and “smokin ass”

Son…know these things don’t last

nor do they alone a marriage make

for though sex gives, it can also take

now I too of flesh am man

and of the female body I’m a hardy fan

there’s legs, hips and tits

plenty of exciting bits

there’s so much here to admirer

but I warn you son: don’t play with fire

for here’s a lesson that I’ve learned:

you can’t cuddle coals and not get burned

and please don’t get ecstatic

over girls made by Photoshop and plastic

who depend on bee-stung lips and boobs bolted-on

and aor men’s attention mix their flesh with silocon

if lust is all you think love you about

your dick will lead you in, and it will lead you out

and if by beauty alone into love you fell

unless you dig deeper you’ll fall out of love as well

erotic delight can’t be love’s foundation

so don’t make the exterior your chief fixation

be it of her form or face

an inner beauty is the highest grace

the daughters of Eve have beauties which fade

like the flower, so the maid

what’s more, a woman’s charm can deceive

and mislead the simple and naïve

with words that seduce and ensnare

weaponising her personality flare

to escape this epidemic blindness

look for a girl possessing wisdom and kindness

whose not conceited but gives to the poor

who turns away from evil and fears the Lord

a girl like this is so hard to find

more precious than rubies by virtue defined

but are you man enough to take such a girl?

to hold and to lead this treasure, this pearl?

will you guard your heart from women who flirt,

and stay with her though it may hurt?

will you still love her when she kicks and she screams,

and for her you sacrifice personal dreams?

when forgotten pains explodes upon you

and her words cut deep, what will you do?

in that hour will you pull out

or will you show a character stout?

for into love any boy can thoughtlessly fall

and romance has made fools of us all

we fall into love when we get a chemical rush

from reciprocated attention from an outstanding crush

and though these feelings take us sky high

inevitably they’ll say goodbye

Now can you tell me the difference between being “in love” with a lady

and actually loving her? Yes? No? Maybe?

it’s about the other when in hardships love is true

but to be merely in love can be all about you.
