Love Series: You Asked for it!

It’s hard not to see all that is going on in the celebrity world when you have social media accounts. Unless you are living under a rock, I’m sure you have heard that entertainer Nick Cannon is divorcing his wife, singer Mariah Carey.

Although, I don’t know these people, I had hoped they could make it. I hope that for all couples, but in their case it seemed to be a case of true love. Nick, “confessed” his way into marrying Mariah. Whenever he was asked who his celebrity crush was, he would say “Mariah Carey”.  Well I had read that she heard about it and gave him a chance and they had a whirlwind romance and marriage resulting in 2 children, but sadly after 6 years Nick is divorcing Mariah (is how it’s being reported).

We can only go by what we hear, but this story is so eye-opening to me. Here is a man who so wanted this woman and now six years later they are reporting that he is anxious to get away from her and I must admit that he looks relieved now that he is “single” again. So what happened?

We will never know the full story. Recently Nick came to the defense of his soon to be ex-wife (admirable) but clearly something was very wrong for a man to leave the woman he loved so dearly. Mariah has had public breakdowns in the past and it’s said that Nick is concerned about her mental health. But we can’t be sure and probably will never know.

All I can say is this is the woman Nick wanted so badly. He asked for her, confessed her and now it’s seems he can’t get away from her quick enough. But she is who he wanted so badly!!

I have been praying for God’s perfect Will to be done concerning love and marriage. I will not settle for anything other than His perfect Will. No matter how much I want to run to someone else away from God’s Will, I do not want to wake up and realize that I got what I asked for and it turns into my worse nightmare. What about you?

Heres what we don’t realize. God will give you exactly what you want (we have free will), but then we will wake up in a nightmare because we just had to have what we wanted!

P.S. I am praying for reconciliation in this marriage!

Psalm 106:15 New King James Version (NKJV)

15 And He gave them their request, But sent leanness into their soul.

  1. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt, lol.

    Worst choice I ever made was to choose my spouse on my own without God’s lead. Being separated is the best thing that ever happened to me and I REALLY thought i wanted him the whole 14yrs. Being away from that toxic depressing relationship I dropped 25lbs and at least 200lbs lbs of stress! What you want can get you in trouble…long lasting messy painful trouble. Let God lead and enjoy the reward of the obedient…i will never take the reigns from Him again!
