Hey guys, before I start this post I just want to say a BIIIIIIGGGGG congratulations to Deborah Poh aka Doffy of whatdoffydoes.com. She got engaged this month…Woot! Whoop!! Whoop!!! There is going to be a wedding….*dancing* I wish you a blissful and blessed marriage. I pray you enjoy your marriage girl. Here is a big congratulatory hug….. I like happy endings to a love story….*smilingsheeplishly* You all need to check out her blog, the girl has got some serious sense of style NO JOKE!!
So yesterday the message of the daily devotional (I use ODM) was centered on Samson and Delilah (Judges 16:1-21). Dr Chris was focusing on the part of Samson opening his mouth to reveal the secrets of his hair. He was concentrating on the fact that it is wise to be slow to react/talk and that we should try to listen more.
That is all good but all I could think about was the stupidity of Samson. SERIOUSLY!!! Guys, have you read the story before (if you have not, please go to your bibles now and read). Honestly Delilah asked Samson FOUR TIMES for the secret to his power and every time REAL SOLDIERS not toy ones with REAL WEAPONS came to him and the guy didn’t have the brains to see that the lady was out to get him.
Honestly the first time I actually wondered what kind of stupid (God forgive me, he was a great judge) spirit entered Samson was when I was listening to a tape of a Pastor who was saying that Love sometimes is more than a good feeling. It has to be right and you need to think clearly. It got me thinking, what hold did Delilah have on Samson? Honestly a man who tore open the jaws of a lion just succumbed to a woman.
I am still trying to decide whether it is the power of a blind love or the power of a woman. I noticed that earlier in judges when he told a riddle to the philistines and they couldn’t come up with the answer they sent a woman also to get the answer from him. I am realizing that the statements ‘women run the world’ and ‘women are powerful’ might just be true.
Imagine all the commotions we caused in biblical times, Eve with Adam, Sarah pushing Abraham to sleep with her maid and giving birth to Ishmael (leading to the problem of Israel and Palestine), Rebekah causing Jacob to steal his brother’s blessings, Delilah and Samson and the list goes on and on. But also women also did some major courageous things: The prostitute Rahab hiding the spies and saving her family, Ruth, Queen Esther (I love her), Virgin Mary and the list goes on and on.
I guess it is safe to say that women have the ability to build up and also tear up, we just have to know how to use our ‘powers’. I think if we all decide to use our powers for good the world might just get a whole lot better. So ladies out there you are superheroes so can we use our powers for good just for a while….*smiling* Yeah? Anybody with me on that.... #riaseyahands
That said I still want to know the magic or powers that Delilah had to get powerful Samson forget himself like that. I MEAN SHE DID IT FOUR TIMES! For real they tried to kill you the first time, you didn’t shake, did it the 2nd time you still put your head on her laps, wow! I need that skill or magic or whatever she had. Darn! Do you know what I would do with it? *rubbingmyhandstogether* I would do some serious damage…hehehe. Just kidding, just kidding, so don’t throw your shoes at me yet....lol. But it would be nice to use in a marriage, to know that no matter the nonsense you do your husband would always come back to you….*sigh* Since she is dead for like a million years I guess we would never know uhn? Drat!!.....lol
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I am writing this earlier than I normally do because I have noticed that I have been sleeping late lately. Like yesterday/this morning I slept around 3am or so because I was on my computer till around 1 am then I could not sleep till 3am. And I had to get to work before 9am, I can cope like this. I need to arrange my life and be in dream world by 12 midnight at the latest! I hope I am able to organize my schedule.
Thanks for stopping by guys.
