DeVon Franklin, Hollywood executive and preacher, recently gave some advice about how some people's preferences can cause them to miss out on love.
"What if your greatest blessing is lying on the other side of the very thing you keep rejecting because you don't think it looks like what you want it to look like," Franklin questioned an OWN "Life Class" audience recently. "When it came to love and it came to dating, I said I would never date an actress."
Franklin said he believed that not wanting something will bring it into your life.
"The fastest way for something to happen in your life, is just say, 'Ill never do it,'" he said.
However, Franklin said that patience is key to maintaining a good relationship.
"I wish there was somebody in the house who knew that there was power in the patience…if you just wait, God will do it," he said, according to S2S Magazine.
Last July, Frankllin advised people to pursue relationships for the right reasons.
"Don't do it other than love, love has to be the reason," Franklin told Hip Hollywood. " It can't be because it looks good, because it's a good profile."
Franklin's wife, Christian actress Meagan Good, also chimed in to give people relationship advice.
"Keep God first, make sure that the person is someone you feel in your spirit is right for you and not someone you think that you want … because you are stuck with them forever and I'm happy to be stuck with this one forever," she told Hip Hollywood.
In the February 2012 issue of EBONY, Franklin wrote his wife a love letter where he talks about being blessed to love her.
"I'm amazed at how incredible God really is. How incredible that He chose me with the blessing of loving you," Franklin wrote to his wife. "You are my true love. I can absolutely say I started living when you came into my life. Each day, I'm so grateful that I can love you and be loved by you."
