I was introduced to religion at birth. I was baptized as a Catholic when I was a few months old and we visited church for Sunday mass every week. We said our rosary prayers, we participated in The Holy Supper, and I even did my first communion. My interaction with religion was outside of my home. We didn't pray before meals, before going to bed, or when things got rough. We didn't do anything religious like attend bible studies or anything like that we simply went to church on Sunday's and did the same things every week. It wasn't until I was 15 years old that I was introduced to a new religion. They called it "followers of Christ" or Christianity.
Becoming a Christian made me understand God. I was taught to read the bible and how to pray for what was in my heart instead of reciting words like a poem; words I didn't understand and had no connection with. I grew an understanding of what it meant to be a follower of Christ and I fell in love with God. I started to become more involved in the Church I was attending and little by little my life was consumed with God's things. I joined the dance ministry then as I got older I joined the music ministry and I sang every Sunday. I attended that church for many many years (this is the same church I had to leave once I got divorced. Refer to "I was 21" for the full story).
With that said, I don't demand that you are as attached to a higher power (which ever that may be) as I am. I understand that religion isn't for everyone but my relationship with God isn't something I want overlooked. In fact, I want to be with someone that understands the fire that burns inside me and I want someone to share the same love for Christ as I do. I've always felt like I was created for something higher than myself, like every path I've crossed hasn't been in vain and I want someone to understand that. There's nothing I want more than a God-fearing man.
For the most part, men are taught to be tough and to not cry. A man is a man by taking punches and being rough and not showing feelings. A God-fearing man understands that breaking down in front of God, praying to God, and raising his hands to praise God, is a strength. Being vulnerable because he understand that he needs God in his life, is also a strength. There is strength in needing the love of God when life gets too difficult to bear. I want someone that can walk the same path as me because if we are doing this together, we will be unstoppable.
Future Husband, I would love to be able to worship with you. Serving the Lord in our marriage is very important to me. Lets aim to win in an area where many others fail. Working on our marriage begins with working on our spiritual well-being.
