Singer and songwriter Jack Johnson once said, ~Love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart.~ If you think about it, for those living the single life such as myself there are times where you're finding yourself in a sense holding your heart in your hands and shaking it like a magic 8 ball in order to get answers to the questions concerning love/true love. Of course, a more detailed description rather than a vaguely standard answer is what any person wants involving their future best friend for life. For it can most definitely be a curiously thought provoking and not to mention frustrating situation indeed trying to figure/get answers that have eluded you to the point where it drives/pushes one to the brink of insanity. Let me ask you this question to those who have used/played with a magic 8 ball before, did you accept the answer it gave you the first time? How about the 2nd or 3rd time? I think it's safe to say when it comes to matters of our own heart we all have the seemingly selfish tendency to not be fully accepting of the answer to a particular question asked regarding a certain guy/girl in question to where one ends up shaking his/her heart again, so to speak, until it reads completely in our favor. In other words, answers such as "most likely" and "signs point to yes" are what you want to see every time you turn over your heart after shaking it instead of constantly getting "ask again later" or "very doubtful", which can leave any individual absolutely frustrated. As I said before, not getting the answers you want within your heart after shaking it, in a manner of speaking, can leave any individual absolutely frustrated so much so it leads to the knee jerk reaction of not only metaphorically throwing it, but yelling at it was well. Essentially, the frustration of not being given the right answer we so desperately want gradually build up that it eventually turns to anger. The anger manifests in such a way it leads to the belief that true happiness is or will never be a prediction that comes true. It's a sad state of affairs when someone you know or are that someone refuses to accept the answer(s)shown after shaking his/her heart countless times knowing full well the outcome remains the same. Matthew 7:7-8 says ~Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.~ What it primarily comes down to is time and patience all-the-while asking the questions within the magic 8 ball that is the bible. Thinking about it further, when you in all intense and purposes shake his word and turn it over the answers you've been seeking will be shown to you. True, the questions that you have in your own heart won't immediately be answered by God because quite frankly it doesn't work that way. Without a doubt, it takes time and patience to truly be opened to, as well as understand a number of truths about ourselves each one of us need to face before getting the answer to one main question we most want in life as it pertains to finally experiencing a strong worthwhile relationship. In retrospect, the magic 8 ball that is the human heart holds many answers to an endless amount of questions. Oftentimes, it's those questions that can have a person relentlessly/frantically shaking their heart in a tremendously emotional, mental, and spiritual way their whole identity is slowly lost. Without a doubt, focusing on his/her own weaknesses and not on their own strengths should truly be shaken out of that unfortunate mindset. The reason I say this is because women, more so than men, end up being in a relationship too soon or in wrong relationship because they think it's the right answer whereby quickly avoiding being/feeling alone. Ultimately, when you shake the magic 8 ball of your heart knowing God is in control you'll know with 100% surety He'll answer it in His own time not yours. In the end, to my fellow single peeps one day each one of us will finally shake our heart after asking THE right question, turn it over and read the following two words: look up.
