I WANT TO EAT CAKE
It is common place for people to use this expression, especially with ladies. When a lady is of marriageable age, many people ask the age old question.’ When are we coming to eat cake?’
The first time someone asked me the question, I asked one of my own, ‘Which cake? Graduation cake?’
‘No, we have eaten that one years ago. It is wedding cake we want to eat.’
This is a subtle way of asking a lady when she is getting married. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. In fact, when this question is not asked, it could show that you don’t care about someone who is close to your heart. But I see so many ladies pushed into marriages they have no business being in because they do not want to be asked this question. I usually tell ladies:
‘Don’t let anyone stampede you into marriage. If they tell you that they want to eat cake, give them two options
Go and bake one for yourself
Go and eat the cake that is already prepared
Don’t be forced to serve cake that is not ready. If you have not found the right man, do not wander towards any wedding venue. People will eat the cake and pass it out while you will be stuck with the reason why they gathered to eat the cake. Your destiny goes beyond making and eating cake.
Some years ago, I had a discussion with some people who were worried about my unmarried status. I told them that the best they could do on the wedding day is be a part of the train, take pictures and generally feel like a band of happy natives.
When the chips are down. After the WEDDING PARTY is over, I will be LEFT ALONE with the choice I have made. When the last guest has gone, I will face the person I have chosen who may make or mar me depending on how hastily I made that decision.
Take time to ask God before you take that leap. Do not let anyone MAKE A CAKE of your destiny.
