A number of girls have randomly asked me, “It’s my boyfriend’s birthday soon, what should I buy for him?”
Have you ever given it some real personal thought? Hardly any girl really knows what to buy for guys. Why? Because we’ve lost track of the greatest gift that a guy needs from us. Next time you wonder what you should get for a guy, give him the gift of mystery.
Guys love mysteriousness, and girls who are mysterious probably chart the top of their list, unless their centeredness is roaming outside of Christ.
The continual search, the wonder, and awe after a girl, shouldn’t merely be because of outer beauty, but rather because her heart is so protectively nestled within God’s hands, that a guy has to go to Christ, to be able to find it. Mysteriousness is a godly characteristic, and it implies a life lived in purity. A mysterious girl never plays with her pearl of purity, she never flirts her way to attention, and neither will she let physical affection or an emotional spin, take her focus off her goal. She will never freely hug guys, but will constantly be on guard to protect her soft heart from any danger that might snatch her love away.
And the guys gawk. Do such girls still exist? What’s up with her? Why won’t she let me?
And he searches. She’s got something, and it’s special. She’s not just your average girl.
If guys had to be honest with us, in why they would want to pursue us, what would they say? Because we so easily just let our weak hearts melt into their hands, or because, no matter how hard they try to touch our hearts, they only bump their head against God’s mighty hands?
Should we allow our hearts to melt away before they’ve been molded by God, they will be malformed when they land in the hands of the wrong guy. Rather, let the Potter shape us into beautiful vessels, so that our testimony would one day settle all the misunderstood mysteries of romance in the world.
And so too, will we ever guard our God-given gift of mystery, only to let God unfold it at the altar. So girls and guys, unfold some mystery in your life, today.
