The Best Tyler Perry Youtube Channel!

By Jeremy Carden

This is a special post dedicated to ALL of “The Haves and the Have Nots” fans that have followed my blog since I got started way back in Season 1 of the show! I really want to make sure that everyone knows about my Youtube channel that is now my outlet for getting my thoughts out there on everything HAHN related.

My channel is called “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review.” On the channel, I do what I used to with my blog. I simply talk about the episodes, theories, character breakdowns and other things focused on the show. Not to mention, I also talk about If Loving You Is Wrong, The Payne’s, Tyler Perry movies/plays along with anything in the works within the walls of Tyler Perry Studios.

Last October, I quit my full-time job at the call center to become a full-time Youtuber. For some reason, the channel suddenly exploded with 1000s of new subscribers around last June. The money that I was making via advertisements was enough for me to pay my bills. With this new source of income, I was blessed to dedicate all of my time towards making videos.

Currently, the channel has about 450 videos! This is no joke at all because I have a lot to say about The Haves and the Have Nots.

If you have been following my blog since I got started, you know for a fact that the length of the blogs were pretty long. That is because I leave no stone unturned whenever I talk about a possible theory regarding the show.

Now, imagine that in video form meaning you do not have to read a blog that was about 10 miles long!

You also get the benefit of listening to my smooth voice while thinking about whether or not you agree with what I am saying.

Making videos has proven to be a much faster way of getting my thoughts out there. This means you are the ones who win because you get a video to listen as you are doing other things instead of being forced to read a blog while placing everything else on hold.

At this point, the channel is over 17,500+ subscribers! We are knocking on the door of 18,000 at this rate. I do not take any of this success for granted because around this time last year, I barely had 600 subscribers. It is nothing short of a blessing that the channel has grown nearly 30 times in size since then.

What is the point of this blog? Aside from making sure everyone knows where to go if they want my insight on all things HAHN, I need to make a request. Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with money.

The goal for my channel is to reach 100,000+ subscribers.

Let me write that again in case you missed it…

THE GOAL FOR MY CHANNEL IS TO REACH 100,000+ SUBSCRIBERS! 

Jim-and-Kathryn

I know that might seem crazy, but I believe we can make it happen. How? We are talking about a hit show on Tuesday nights. A show that was Tyler Perry’s first step into a direction outside of the Madea dress and wig. A show that was not a sitcom with a laugh track behind every line of dialogue. A show that was telling stories that had compelling characters bringing drama into our living rooms every Tuesday night.

This WordPress blog that I started after I was inspired to share my theories with like-minded HAHN addicts has been viewed more than 600,000+ times. Keep in mind, I spent over three years working on this blog without a single cent to show for it. However, a good friend pointed me in the direction of Youtube to widen my audience.

Screenshot_31

My channel has over 3,375,856 views! This is just a testament to how hard work, faith and determination cannot go without being rewarded. At first glance, it might seem like I am throwing out numbers just to boast or sound impressive. I want to stress that it NOT the reason behind this post.

If anything, this is a huge thank you to everyone that has been with me since Day 1 reading my theory blogs that were sometimes right on the money (Candace not being killed by the Malones) and other times off target (Amanda being Celine’s daughter) from what the actual show revealed to us later on down the line.

One of the main reasons I would like to hit over 100,000 subscribers is because channels that hit that milestone are given a special plaque.

I would love to receive one in the mail that reads: “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review: Congratulations For Surpassing 100,000 Subscribers!

For those of you that have made it this far into the blog, you might be thinking about how you could help me make this dream a reality. If so, the answer is actually pretty simple. All it takes is for you to subscribe to my channel if you have not done so already. You can also share the videos that you like or think are good predictions about the plot. These little things will get my channel out there to those who do not already know about it.

The biggest video on the channel is about the Ice Queen herself! It was my first video to surpass 200,000 views. The video had to do with whether or not she survived the car accident at the end of last season.

Turns out she survived after all, but that cliffhanger had everyone guessing what was going to happen next! Sadly, the accident was resolved a bit too quickly for my taste, but that is besides the point. If this video could surpass 200,000 views in less than 3 months then I know it is possible for this channel to reach 100,000+ subscribers in the near future!

My promise to all of my followers is to provide quality videos. Aside from videos where only my thoughts are discussed, I also do live streams where some fans call me on Google Hangouts. It really gives the channel a radio-like vibe because callers talk with me about all things HAHN.

I guess those three years in the call center paid off because it makes transitioning over to this Youtube platform a lot easier. That just goes to show God does not put you into an arena without some hidden purpose behind it.

If Michael Jackson did not believe in his vision to create the biggest selling album of all time, Thriller would not have been released. The King of Pop believed in his vision and Thriller still stands at the top of the mountain even after his passing. Now, I know I need to believe in myself when it comes to this channel.

Jesus feed the multiple with two fish and five loaves of bread. He will make a way! I am a very independent person, but I have been humbled by this channel. It has shown me that my posts, videos, etc. are not just about me. They are my thoughts, but everyone who comments on them with their perspective keeps the conversion going. In most of my videos, I mention that the comment section is just an extension of my video. The video is the first domino knocking over the next one and there have been some very good conversations on my posts and videos.

Screenshot_202

That is why I am reaching out to everyone out there using every social media platform that I have! I urge you to subscribe, share my channel on your own social media outlets to ensure everyone knows about it.

Aside from hitting my goal of 100,000 subscribers, I want to increase this HAHN family so everyone has a chance to have their voice heard in an outlet with like-minded addicts of this show!

Sadly, the show will be ending in 2020 because that is when Tyler Perry’s contract with OWN will official come to an end. We will have to say goodbye to HAHN and If Loving You Is Wrong. However, that does not mean these shows will not continue on another network if the fans make enough noise. Trust me, I have no doubt in my mind that all of us together can help the show stay alive.

Remember that the fans were the reason that The Payne’s was brought back from a five year hiatus after that House of Payne cliffhanger.

That is why I do not take my channel lightly because it is a voice for the people who love Tyler Perry’s work. Something else that I would like to make clear is that I never post links or videos of the episodes themselves. That is a serious breach of trust as well as copyright infringement that could get my channel shutdown. Considering this is my one source of income, that would be a very bad idea…

Not to mention, that would be something that is against my own moral code. So, I wanted you to know that my channel is made of original content regarding my thoughts, ideas (as well as your own) about the HAHN along with Tyler Perry’s other shows and movies.

Spirit_Bomb

Keeping an eye on the subscriber number and seeing it increasing makes me feel like Goku collecting energy for his Spirit Bomb.

In case you missed the link above, I wanted to leave a link to my Youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/jbiblecarden

I also have other social media outlets that you should follow to make sure you are aware of my posts whenever I add something new to the channel:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through all of this. For those of you that have been supporting me since the start of my HAHN journey, I cannot thank you enough. To those of you that are just joining this big HAHN family, I hope you enjoy the ride because you haven’t seen anything yet! 

Please get my channel out there, and I will continue to do more videos. As always, I’ll be doing what I can to keep interest in the show alive and well even during the brief hiatus periods between seasons!

Why Do Fans Hate Iris West?| CW’s The Flash

 

by Jeremy Carden

Believe it or not, but I do not actually hate Iris. The title of this post may suggest otherwise, but I just do not care for how the writers have been treating her over the past couple of seasons on The Flash.

fla322c-0115b-996992-625x352

I feel that she was nothing more than a plot device last season when Barry’s life revolved around saving her life from Savitar.

Season 4 is not off to a great start so far because it seems that every episode has at least one Iris West scene that has rubbed fans the wrong way.

In the video below, I go into my full thoughts on why this character has been getting so much hate from the Flash fanbase, and how the writers can turn things around this season!

I feel like there is so much more that could be done with her as a character. I find it ironic that Wally West was highly underutilized as a hero once Barry came out of the Speed Force. As a result, he has left the show (temporarily).

Instead of properly utilizing Iris, she has been given a more ‘important role’ as a character. However, this has caused her to act out of character for the most part so far this season.

Seriously, eloping in a church that has just finished a funeral? I cannot believe she was giving Barry crap last season for getting engaged in order to change the future to save her life from Savitar!

1xv6yd

One of the biggest things has been the line about how Barry is not the Flash, but “we are the Flash…” Believe it or not, but I think this line is proper because Barry has been going on and on about how there is no Flash without Iris.

22688436_692293667635519_6200580206238124575_n

One of the best (worst) things is that even though Iris has done a lot of things that have ticked off fans, I will say that we have been able to get some great memes online after each episode!

Do you hate Iris or have you become numb to her character on the show?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Maggie Is the Killer!

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

The season finale is coming soon! Tuesday will be here before you know it, and fans have been pulling out their hair because of their anticipation!

Who will die? Who will live? What lies will be brought to the surface? Whose chicken will come home to roost?

Screenshot_28

Now the title of this blog might have you thinking that I have Maggie Day pegged as the killer during the season finale. I suppose you could say that, or you should realize that she has already “killed” someone!

Who am I referring to?

Screenshot_29

It all occurred during last week’s episode, and her encounter with the Ice Queen herself!

The clip above was my FAVORITE part of last week’s episode!

io;iop

Maggie revealed to Veronica that she knows about her affair with 23-year-old Benny Young, but has not blown the whistle on her to David.

When Veronica asks why Maggie has not snitched to David, she tells her that it has to do with timing. From there, Maggie reveals her plan to have David run for governor.

Screenshot_27

Veronica scoffs at the idea because she thinks that Maggie has her own hidden agenda. Maggie brought up the fact that Veronica would not shy away from being the First Lady, but Veronica is quick to call her potential bluff.

I mean when you look at things from Veronica’s perspective (I can’t believe that I just said that), you would also be suspicious of Maggie’s intentions. Sure, Maggie was 100% honest with Veronica about how she feels about David. I will give her the credit she deserves, but she was still chasing after a man who is married!

The fact that Maggie said that she did not reveal Veronica’s affair to David because of timing has me thinking that she has a hidden agenda. She could be trying to get David in the governor’s mansion, and wait for Veronica to blow the marriage (which she has already done) before making her move.

Screenshot_35

Like it or not, Maggie is potentially the most dangerous and cunning character on the show in her own way. It has never been revealed if her persuading Veronica to bail out Quincy from prison was a “double agenda.” We know that her intention was getting Q out in order to get Candace under control to stop her from ruining Jim’s campaign. However, she might have anticipated a man that has been in prison for 3 years would be instantly attracted to the first woman that he laid eyes on after all of that time; Veronica was most likely the first woman her has seen in 3 years!

screenshot_18

That could be why he was so persistent with having sex with her on multiple occasions! I don’t know…Maggie might have planned that out. Aside from having Q being a dog off the lease, she could also use that as ammo against Veronica if she blows the whistle to David about it!

So at this point, Maggie knows about Veronica’s affair with Benny AND has the proof of Veronica bailing Q out of jail! Veronica told David that she did that at the Sarandon Hotel, and caused an even bigger rift in their marriage.

the_haves_and_the_have_nots_s01e23_mp41879

Veronica is basically doing Maggie’s dirty work for her, and she is running her own marriage as a result. This is EXACTLY what Maggie has been trying to do all along!

David told Veronica that the breaking point of their marriage would be if she has been screwing around behind his back, and that was right before she handed him the divorce papers.

Maggie has the final bullet needed to kill the Ice Queen, but has yet to pull the trigger…

You are probably wondering who she “killed” last week, and I will tell you the person that she killed.

Screenshot_30

Did you notice the two masks that were hanging on the wall near the front door of Veronica’s new house?

As she was leaving, Maggie said that she loved the décor of Veronica’s new house. What made this scene even more perfect that it already was involved Maggie bringing up something that was mentioned during her first meeting with Veronica.

Do you recall the first encounter of Maggie, Veronica and Katheryn? It was during the early episodes of Season 2 after she agreed to be Jim and David’s campaign manager. Maggie had a brief meeting with their wives to introduce them to her strategy for the campaign.

Screenshot_33

Never one to beat around the bush, Maggie noted that Veronica’s wardrobe and fashion sense was too flashy. After she left, it was clear that she did not make friends with Veronica and Katheryn.

When she was leaving Veronica’s house, she mentioned that the décor was nice without being too flashy. Veronica then threw the folder containing the photos of her and Benny at Maggie. It did not hit her intended target, but it knocked down one of the masks on the wall.

After Maggie closed the door, Veronica fell to the floor in tears and frustration. If you ask me, the mask hitting the ground was almost a form of symbolism.

11026595_10204874368485613_6997965045096577265_n (1)

The two masks could represent different things about Veronica’s personality:

  • One mask represented the facade Veronica had regarding her marriage
  • One mask represented the facade of Jeffrey NOT being gay

Maggie’s speech to Veronica about how David loved her and did not have an affair “killed” one of Veronica’s personalities.

Screenshot_43

The persona or “mask” that wanted revenge against David for cheating on her!

Yes, Maggie Day “murdered” someone in last week’s episode!

Now the mask falling on the floor (with Veronica doing the same) reminds me of the expression about picking your face up off of the ground.

Screenshot_39

In the finale, it appears that Veronica is going to try correct two of her mistakes:

  • She tries to cut ties with Benny by ending their affair, but it does not look like he wants that to happen
  • She goes to David’s office and tells him to take the opportunity by running for governor

Screenshot_37

She is even seen on stage beside David as Jim is about to give his speech about dropping out of the race for office, but it is unknown whether or not he will bow out or continue to run.

What has me curious is if Jim does decide to quit the race, will David walk to the podium and reveal that HE is running?

Screenshot_36

He did not want to run without consulting his “friend” Jim, but for him to be pushed in that direction by his wife…this finale is going to be interesting to say the least.

It is still unknown if the impact of Veronica learning the truth about her husband’s affair will cause her to think twice about how she has treated Jeffrey (the second mask on the wall), but I could see her potentially being killed in the finale.

CN6OvcoWgAA932g

Aside from the hit that Jim put out on her (as well as Cannon and Terrell), it would not surprise me if the Ice Queen gets killed just as she is trying to make things right in her life. After all of the harm she has caused, Veronica has a lot to answer for.

Screenshot_7

I know my whole theory on the masks being symbolism for Veronica’s personality might be a result of me reading too much into this, but I’m a HAHN addict (this is what I do)! If the masks were actually written into scene for symbolism, I give applause to whoever put that in there!

Screenshot_1

Also, I am a sucker for continuity, and Maggie Day delivered by referencing what she first told Veronica about her flashy personality! If I am not mistaken, I read somewhere that Maggie was not even supposed to be in the series for this long. However, that changed and she has become a major player at the HAHN table if you ask me.

6a00d834515c2369e201901b7bc445970b

Somehow, the Grinch’s heart also grew three sizes that day, but is it enough for Veronica to make peace with her family?

Screenshot_34

Will David and Jeffrey forgive her? Will Veronica call off the wedding that she posted about in the newspaper? Is Maggie trying to take the position as First Lady for herself? Will Veronica die in the finale?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Is Wyatt Gay?

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

Honestly, I cannot believe that I am writing this theory. However, when I thought about a possible character shift for Wyatt…this idea just clicked into my mind!

Effective misdirection is the key to this show, and everything is not what it seems. This is especially true when a viewer thinks that they know where the story is going, but it turns out that Tyler Perry is taking things to a place that you never expected it to go.

Screenshot_22

As the person who writes these theory blogs, I can wholeheartedly say that the above state is indeed a fact. Now, as we have seen since season 2; Veronica is indeed the coldest person on the show!

It just seems that she has been going too far for her own good. Her actions are eventually going to catch up with her, and she has a lot to answer for. I will say that her plans so far have almost 100% gone her way, but I think that her plans are eventually going to backfire!

Screenshot_6

Recently, she has setup Wyatt to be sexually abused or raped in prison. Veronica told Wyatt that she always collects on her debts, and Wyatt will pay for trying to expose her along with his parents.

Whether or not Wyatt can recover from this has yet to be determined, but I think that he will get revenge. I am not sure who will tell him that his stay in prison was a setup by Jim, and Veronica was the one that put the real rapist in his prison cell.

I could write about 1,000 ways for this to go down! To keeps things simple, I will take a look at the end result of Veronica’s plan backfiring.

11892269_10204910829957127_8804563136081497023_n

It really has to do with the announcement in the newspaper that Veronica made about Jeffrey’s “engagement” to Melissa. I don’t think that I need to remind you about her plot of getting her pregnant by Jeffrey to have a grandchild.

Melissa told Jeffrey that if he did not show up on the day of their wedding, Veronica was going to embarrass him for it.

Screenshot_27

Fans are speculating about how Veronica expects to embarrass him because he is no longer listening to what she has to say. Not to mention that she has already cut him off financially, given his apartment to Melissa and set him up to be a father; what else could she possibly do to him?

She could say something about him being a deadbeat for not getting married to the woman carrying his child or something along those lines. I was stunned that the last line of the announcement say that the 2 are expecting their first child!

11828745_10204866348445117_3459416836546916774_n

My theory is that Jeffrey is going to flip the script on his mother! If she plans on embarrassing him, Jeffrey could embarrass her A LOT more!

ep104-own-hhn-23-600x411

Jeffrey is in love with Wyatt, and I do not want Wyatt’s experience in prison to turn him into a homosexual. I am not saying that to be homophobic or anything like that. Personally, I do not think that is a good way for Wyatt to open his eyes to a new world as Jeffrey put it during the episode “Two Funerals.”

I do like the idea of Jeffrey and Wyatt PRETENDING to be in a relationship just to get under Veronica’s skin!

Screenshot

Here is how I think this will be extremely effective, and Veronica will possibly have no way to counter this. I say possibly because Veronica almost has this internal instinct that will allow her to walk away from any bomb that someone plans on throwing her way. However, if Jeffrey and Wyatt pull this off correctly; this bomb will blow up right in Veronica’s face!

What if…Jeffrey comes out as being a homosexual to the public? How would Veronica be able to counter that? Jeffrey could either plot this prior to or the day of his wedding to Melissa!

11535670_10204614191901361_6978215405969349954_n

That would be like the ultimate “SCREW YOU MOM!!!” for Jeffrey to pull off!

The reason why Veronica could not counter this is because if she did, she’d be destroying herself by doing so!

Why?

LOS170IMG16

During the last press conference, Veronica was able to save face (very impressively if I do say so myself) by giving her “You people” speech. It was when she was asked about her thoughts on gay rights.

In the speech, she did not say anything about her TRUE feelings on gays, but was able to describe the states as a place where everyone has rights. She told David that she has no problem with gay people, but she does not want her only son to be a homosexual.

Screenshot_40

By revealing her hatred of her own son’s homosexuality; Veronica would be screwed!

It is clear that she is willing to destroy everything she has built with David, but is she willing to destroy herself? Not so sure, remember that she is trying to destroy the Black Sedan because it is evidence linking her to the hit-and-run charges!

Screenshot_41

Wyatt’s speech to Veronica about her son being gay, and her not being able to do anything was hilarious! If anything, I think that it was a foreshadowing to Jeffrey rubbing his homosexuality in Veronica’s face!

Remember that Wyatt said he loves how Jeffrey is attracted to him, and it makes Veronica squirm! It is so hilarious that no matter how tough Veronica tries to be, if someone even mentions Jeffrey being gay; it shuts her up fast!

11846719_10204845974135772_8133584723843860188_n

How this will change anything about Melissa carrying Jeffrey’s baby is beyond me. I am still not 100% sure that she is REALLY pregnant, but then again that’s just me. I know that the pregnancy test said that she was, and she continues to bring up the fact that she is having a baby.

The fact that she was in the restroom so long when she was at the hotel just does not sit right with me.

11041793_784228501666629_5002634994115118009_n

I’ve said it before and I will say it again; I have a feeling in my gut that Quincy is going to show up to “Jeffrey’s apartment” and find Melissa there by herself! Not so sure that the encounter is going to go over well…

In any case, I think that Wyatt would be more than willing to play the role as Jeffrey’s man just to get back at Veronica for what she has done to him!

Screenshot_21

The one thing that I really think Jeffrey could do to make things even more deliciously spiteful to his mother would be to come up with a sappy story. Remember that he was on stage with his “girlfriend” Melissa. The reporter stated to Veronica that it was clear that her son (Jeffrey) was not gay because he was standing there with his lovely girlfriend. Jeffrey could spin things saying that he was never comfortable about who he was until he heard his mother’s speech about gay rights at the press conference.

The-Haves-and-the-have-nots-Enough-is-Enough-1

After hearing her talk about equal rights and acceptance, that gave him the courage to come out and be who he really is!

He could bash the engagement by stating that it would not be fair to Melissa or him to actually get married. Now that is how he could defeat his mother! Again, the baby seems to be the only deciding factor in this theory. However, I still have my doubts about her really carrying a baby…

ep132-own-hhn-2-949x534

If Melissa and Jeffrey worked together as well, I could see Veronica’s icy throne beginning to melt! However, she has literally given up when it comes to trying to fight. It is all about Veronica having Melissa right where she wants her with her family, but I think she could play a key factor in foiling Veronica’s schemes!

140527mag-aaron-oconnell1

Is Wyatt going to become a homosexual for real, or is he going to play a game just to get back at Veronica? Even if Jeffrey comes out as being a homosexual, will Veronica be able to spin the odds back in her favor? Is Melissa really pregnant? Will she and Jeffrey get married?

College Dating #2; Ladies Be Reasonable

Image

This is one subject that can get a bit touchy but it is something that I could not avoid talking about.

Don’t get me wrong, in a relationship I believe it is proper for the man to take out his girlfriend for a nice dinner or buy her something nice. However, it should not be something that is expected to be done numerous times. Why? Both individuals are in college and the last time I checked it isn’t the most inexpensive place to be in today’s world.

With rising tuition each semester, student loans, buying books, housing fees, buying gas (if the student has a car) and all the other things that take money out of a student’s wallet it is hard to keep a woman happy while in college. If women would be a bit more understanding then a lot of relationships would go a lot smoother.

I know times are tough after a long week of classes involving quizzes, exams, projects and of course the stress that comes along with that. Not to mention if one or both of the people in a relationship have jobs on top of that it just adds on to the daily demands already put into place from being a college student. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all with your man especially if the two of you haven’t been spending a lot of quality time together due to demanding schedules.

College relationships seem to be a “test” as to how two individuals would handle marriage when you really think about it. I’ve never been married but just from observation and talking with people I know who are in relationships some of the same factors are evident.

Here are a few of the similarities:

  • Bringing the stress from work or school into the relationship by taking those aggressive feelings out on each other often resulting in arguments due to misplaced anger
  • The relationship can sometimes get a bit stale with the same old routine over and over again. Don’t be afraid to spice up the relationship with something new. Instead of a movie go out dancing or just do something that you’ve never done before
  • Money can be an issue but only if you let it. Despite not being married, keeping a budget (and this goes for the men) is important because the school cafeteria and coupon dinners won’t keep a woman satisfied if this happens EVERY date night
  • The guy or girl may feel neglected if work and school seems to come in between them with dates having to be rescheduled due to demanding work schedules or exams/projects to work on

I know the last one listed above is true for guys who have girlfriends in the nursing program or ladies with a boyfriend studying law, those majors have a demanding schedule and it is not uncommon for person to feel a bit neglected. However, making time for one another is a topic I’ll cover in Part 3 of my “College Dating” blogs.

Ladies, sometimes it is best to keep things simple when it comes to date night with your man. As I mentioned above, there are many things that can cause stress and exhaustion while in college. Some nights it would do some good just to spend time with your man. Go out to a place off campus to get away from all of the distractions, look at the stars and just talk. Remember that old saying “Simplicity is best” and when it comes to love that really does apply. Those moments when the two of you can get away from everything so you can be together means more than anything he can buy you (ladies could argue that a wedding ring would mean more but that’s just based on opinion).

Overall, just remember that you are not the only one with a demanding schedule in college. If your boyfriend truly cares about you he will bend over backwards trying to make you happy. Also consider his feelings too, maybe he had rough day at work or a tiresome week of classes and he needs some attention. Just like text messages, phone calls or social media messages/conversations; it works BOTH ways. He doesn’t always have to be the first one to contact you. As a man, I can say that those little “I love you” or “Good morning” messages mean just as much to us as it does for females because it shows that you care. With that in mind, ladies PLEASE try to be a bit more reasonable when it comes to the dating expectations of your man especially while you are still in college.

God Knows Who Is Right for You

“Wow…just wow…” that has been the only thing on my mind since I came to understand something that I should have figured out a LONG time ago. I don’t know about you but I’m one of those people who over thinks just about anything and everything.

At night when I get in bed to go to sleep, my mind suddenly begins to race thinking about numerous things; conversations I had during the day, past experiences and whatever else decides to pop into my head while I’m trying to sleep.

I don’t know why but suddenly the thought of relationships came to mind. It had to do with the whole “Why am I still single, while just about everyone I know is in a relationship?!?”

It came to me out of nowhere that the right one will come when God tells me. For some reason the story in Genesis 24-26 just jumped to the front of my thoughts. Abraham was getting old and he knew he didn’t have much longer before he would pass on. He wanted his son to marry so that God’s promise would be fulfilled to continue his bloodline to become the father of many nations.

He sent his eldest servant back to his home country to find a wife among his kin since the women in Canaan did not seem right for Isaac.

While waiting at the fountain the servant had no idea of how to pick out a woman since there were so many coming to fetch water. He prayed and God showed him which one. That woman was Rebekah. She gave water to him and offered to water his camels.

Then after I remembered the story, it just hit me that in my lifetime I’ve encountered many women. Most have either become good friends and others were just people that crossed my path but we kept going our own separate directions.

As I got older, I began to ponder whether or not I have already encountered the woman that I was meant to marry.

People have been telling me to be patient and wait on God because He will let me know when the time is right and who the woman He made just for me is. Never have I realized how true that statement was until tonight.

I’m not saying that I’ll be at a fountain waiting for her, it could be at a bus stop, in a grocery store or wherever but one thing is for sure it will be when God sees fit for me to know.

With that little nugget of wisdom God placed on my heart tonight, I feel like I have a weight lifted off my shoulders from occasionally worrying and complaining about being single. Patience and faith are key factors. I mean that servant had no idea who the right woman was or how long he would be waiting at the fountain.

He could have been sitting for awhile before one woman came along, gotten frustrated and just picked the first woman that came. However, he had PATIENCE and FAITH that God would show him the right woman at the right time.

The same holds true for women waiting on the right man to come along. So, to all of the single people reading this message just know that the right person will be coming your way sooner or later. While you are waiting remain patience and keep faith in God because He knows what He is doing!

First of all I would like to express thanks to WordPress.com because this has been the best blogging website that I have been a part of posting different topics for readers to enjoy.

Second round of thanks goes to the bloggers who followed my account I think that the “Run-Out Diet” post really got attention because a lot of you could relate to what I was writing about which was a real honor knowing that my words has some effect reaching those who need the encouragement or to know that they are not the only ones going through a problem.

So, if you follow my on here, read my blogs or whatever I’d like you to get to know a little more about myself. By the time you finish reading this post, I hope that you get to know the man behind the blog a little bit more.

My name is Jeremy Carden and I am from Clover, VA a small town that and I live out in the woods with my parents. Clover is a town located in the South Boston/Halifax County area let me put it in perspective; I’m 30 minutes from town, most of the traffic where I live is deer and squirrels and even in the town of South Boston Wal-Mart is the mall. Seriously, that is how small this county is.

I’m a student at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Next Saturday I graduate with a Bachelor’s in Communications (Advertising/Public Relations), Associate’s in Religion and a Minor in Biblical Studies. I plan on going to graduate school as well for a degree in Theological Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Communications.

I’m 21-years-old and I’m proud to share my birthday with the King of Pop: Michael Jackson on August 29th. My favorite number is 8 and my favorite letter is W. Dogs are the BEST pets!!!

Going a little deeper, I’m a book-a-holic and writing is my passion (songs, poems, short stories and screenplays). My dream job is to be a professional songwriter or do voice-over work (because I get told a lot that my voice is wonderful because it’s deep yet soothing and this has been by professional radio stations and music professors at my school).

At the tender age of 8 (did I mention that is my favorite number), I was saved and joined my church family at Bethel Grove Baptist Church knowing that the Lord was my Savior which was one of if not the greatest days of my life thus far. I’ve been speaking in churches since I was 9 so in a sense I’m somewhat an evangelist I guess because that’s what most people call me or “Preacher Man.”

This was before I went to Liberty so know that I have the degrees to make it official there may come the day when I chose to get ordained if I feel that it is God’s calling for my life. Until then, I enjoy speaking to people about God’s grace.

Social media is my playground! Twitter, Facebook, you name it I’m addicted to it!!! I manage 3 Facebook pages for my school, 1 for my music and of course my own personal Facebook page. I’m that guy who posts funny, inspirational comments to get people thinking. Most people ask if I get this from another website but really those comments come from things I see or experience.

True, I’ve reached a point in my life I’m not supposed to be at until maybe age 22 or 23 finishing college with multiple degrees and fixing to move on up in life. I’m still single…

No, I haven’t found the woman I want to marry due to being a work-a-holic not to mention I haven’t found anyone that I see myself compatible with. Only time will tell when the right woman comes into my life and won’t that be a happy day for me!!!
