MARRIAGE AND BEING SINGLE

MARRIAGE AND BEING SINGLE

When I think of marriage, I think beautiful things. It's one, if not the most sacred thing for a man and a woman. It’s about the strongest commitment two people can do for each other, for the rest of their lives; and yet, these days matrimony is treated with such disrespect that people use it for all the wrong reasons. 

In fact, marriage is so unappreciated these days; people get married with the intention of divorce—should it not work out—rather than marriage until death do us part.

Unless it is mad, passionate love that you have deep within your soul for another person; never rush into a union that will bond you in God’s eyes. 

One of the saddest, most depressing things in life is waking up every single day next to someone who doesn't make your heart beat.

Ask yourself...

  1. Am I truly ‘in love’ with this person? 

  2. Can I be faithful to this one person for the rest of my life?

  3. Can I see myself with this person 30, 40, 50 years from now?  

If you answered no, it is not your time.

The Song of Solomon tells us not once, not twice, but three times:

“DO NOT STIR UP LOVE BEFORE ITS OWN TIME.”

—Song of Solomon 2:7; 3:5; 8:4

When a person realizes their worth, I’m talking truly, deep in their soul realize how valuable they are—man or woman—that’s when God takes them to the next level of life; that’s when He introduces us to our soulmate.

Your soulmate is someone who will make you smile every sunrise and each sunset. Your soulmate is someone you can see yourself growing old with. Who will challenge you daily and fill every gap in your body—physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally—with satisfaction and admiration. 

If you think God doesn’t have a plan for you because you're still single—while everyone else seems to be getting married—you haven’t touched the surface of the Lord.

You are worthy of someone very special, but you have to take a step back and let God do it for you.

“DO NOT STIR UP LOVE BEFORE ITS OWN TIME.”

—Song of Solomon 2:7; 3:5; 8:4

This year, I spent time reflecting and digging deep to reveal the core of those feelings for my personal life. It's a daily practice because I’m human and I too fail at times. But I remind myself every day that I am worthy of what is yet to come. I refuse to settle for just anyone. And until God shows me the man He created for me, I will remain faithful to Him, to His word and His promises. I will not stir up love (by my own free will) before its own time. 

Don't rush the process, let go and let God...
