Love Series: Don’t Fall for the “Okie-Doke”

I’m sure that title got your attention. The phrase “okie-doke” is used in the urban community and it means: Believing a lie; falling for a scam; a con-game; untruths; fraud etc.

The other day I said I was going to share a series of reblogs, but actually I felt the one I shared was enough. It was the post about the Tiger Woods syndrome. The post speaks for itself. Well this post is along similar lines.

Single ladies, let’s not fall for the same old stuff from the past. Have you ever had things said to you time and time again and then the minute you starting believing, it turned out to be a lie? Well I have had that happen too many times for me to count.

Honestly, I am grateful for all I’ve gone through because I have learned some great lessons and now I kind of understand my recent dream. Had I not had that dream I would be falling for the “okie-doke” once again.  But not a chance this time. I have to go by what God has shown me now, until further notice.

I’ve also learned that there must be equal commitment in relationship, even if a friendship. Why does the woman have to “step out on faith” and the man does nothing? Ladies, all I have to say is, if God says BEWARE, please do that.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Things are not as they seem.  Stop and discern the attitudes and motives that lie behind words and actions.  Do not put your trust in man, but trust only Me, for I am trustworthy and will never leave you nor forsake you.  Be assured that nothing is hidden from My sight, and I will bring everything hidden in darkness to the light.  Stand in a place of integrity before Me, says the Lord, for I am your place of safety, your holy habitation.

Psalm 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

  3. I can’t believe how connected we are sometimes! I’m in an “okie dokie” situation at this very minute texting it out! Except he doesn’t know I know he’s lying. By God’s good grace I’m remaining calm because my flesh wants to flip out on him.
