What I’ve been trying to articulate for years..

One of the deepest ways a woman bears the image of God is in her mystery. By “mystery” we don’t mean “forever beyond your knowing,” but something to be explored.” “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,” says the book of Proverbs, “to search out a matter is the glory of kings” (25:2). God yearns to be known. But he wants to be sought after by those who would know him. He says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jer. 29:13). There is dignity there; God does not throw himself at any passerby. He is no harlot. If you would know him you must love him; you must seek him with your whole heart. This is crucial to any woman’s soul. “You cannot simply have me. You must seek me, pursue me. I won’t let you in unless I know you love me.”

  1. I´m thinking about your words.

    Is it possible that you let anyone understand you? I´m not talking about women when I say “you”´. I´m asking it to you, the girl who dreams at the office after 12 wonderful days off…

    Is it possible for a man to care about a girl who thinks men annoy her?

    Have you an answer?
    Would you like to answer to me, please?

    I´ll give to you chocolate if you answer to me… I´m not going to touch the window… (giggle)

  2. wow random guy, you sure are creepy =).

    anyway steff, it’s pretty chewy food for thought. i’d like to think a pretty caring guy, do i think i could figure out what girls are thinking – not a clue. ah well, c’est la vie.

  3. That’s apretty awesome stuff Steff.

    I love John Elderidge’s work.

    I think as with most of the english language, the whole “i’ll never understand girls thing” has been overused and therefore exaggeratted.

    I think that most times this kind of statement is uttered in frustration after yet another seemingly inexplicable action from a member of the fair sex.

    However to address your post more directly, As God is completely unknowable this side of eternity, so is a woman. There are limits to the human mind, and I in no way makes this a derogatory post, I’m just making people aware, that Male and Female are so completely different that it is impossible for them to completely understand each other; this side of Heaven.
