I think it’s safe to say that many are trying to find that special someone, their soul mate. Some find that person earlier than others, some later, and some may be called to a singles life. Society tends to put out so many worldly standards that many people either settle for someone that’s not right for them or they simply just give up. God gives us so much wisdom in His word on the matter, for instance, the verse that many have heard from
1 Corinthians 13:4-7:
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude…”
True love comes from God and we have to be able to wait on Him. Seek Him first and He will provide.
Before I came to know Christ, I focused on worldly standards of love, and it got me into the wrong place really fast. I jumped into a relationship because truthfully, I didn’t think I could find better. Out of that three-year relationship, I spent about a year and a half unhappy; but I thought to myself, I will never find someone better. I was wrong! Years later after seeking love or lust in all the wrong places; I started to devote more time to Christ and asking Him to send me a woman, the one for me. I was specific in what I was looking for and asked precisely for those things. The Lord surely did bless me with a woman who had ALL the things I had prayed on. She is a wonderful woman and this coming January we will embark on our new journey together as husband and wife. I owe all this to my Lord and savior! For seeking Him and His love, He sent my soul mate.
Living in His standard rather than the world’s offers so much more, but it takes that patience and seeking His heart, and also knowing that you are worth so much more that what the world tells you. Don’t ever just settle, KNOW YOUR WORTH!
