Drea Kelly, The Helpmeet

And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a

helper comparable to him…and the Lord God…took one of [Adam’s] ribs…and…made [it] into a woman (Adam’s wife)…’ (Genesis 2:18,22)

Yesterday I talked about Drea Kelly, and how she was R. Kelly’s protection. If you haven’t read the post, I suggest you read it. But in it, I mentioned that she was his helpmeet (helper) which in Hebrew means ‘to aid, surround and protect’. I pointed out that she was created for R. Kelly and that she was HIS helper. She was the woman God created that was ‘comparable to him.’ How could I be so sure? I’m not. But I told you about her detailing the landmarks in his career that she attributed to their marriage and how when they were doing well, his career flourished. What she was essentially saying was that she was his inspiration and because of it, he went on to write chart-topping, award-winning songs.
