Are You Sure? - Poem by Deidre Dixon

Say what? You want to marry me?
Well, I have a few questions for you.
And some food for thought, too.
Are you sure you’re ready for me?
Or are you one of those shallow people whose only desire is what they see?
Are you the priest, the provider and the protector?
Do you love me unconditionally?
Has God spoken to your heart and said I was the one?
Did you seek the Lord to see if we should be one?
You see, I have to be sure that you are the one with whom I should spend my life.
‘Cause I’m not just some woman or a girlfriend; I’m a wife.
That is what you’re looking for, right?
I cannot just be happy because someone wants to marry me.
‘Cause I’m an asset and not a liability.
I’m a woman of virtue, a help meet, and an intercessor.
I can throw down in the kitchen, keep a clean house and I’m a pretty fine dresser.
If that’s not enough, there’s even more to me.
I’m not a lazy person who will sit around and look.
While he works like a dog and caters to me, and I sit there and soak it all up.
I realize that it’s not all about me, but about one life shared by two.
My husband won’t have to worry about me walking around looking like a runaway slave.
I do know how to please my husband and have fun even though I’m saved.
And, yes, I have a calling on my life, and I’m committed to God’s work.
But, I also have balance and my husband won’t have to feel like he’s competing with the church.
I’m not just a piece of a person, but I’m whole.
I’m not about to settle for less than what I was told - by my Heavenly Father, that is.
He knows best.
Before He allows you to take my hand, you will be put to the test.
He told me that my husband is a physical manifestation of His love for me.
And that is exactly what a husband should be.
My husband is the priest, the provider and protector of me.
He loves me like Christ loves the church, unconditionally.
Though he likes what he sees on the outside, he’s interested in what is on the inside - my spirit.
He’s ready for me spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially.
Say what? You want to marry me?
Are you sure?
