Do i want to get married someday soon?
Who am I gonna get married to?
I know him, but I just haven't met him yet. Confused? Well I am not. I know exactly what I am taking about. See, I was created from my husband’s rib, I was created and fashion with him in mind, our paths are predestined to cross and merge together as one. This is a given, and I refuse to spend sleepless nights, over thinking loneliness, that will in turn gives the enemy leeway to temp me, deceive me, and give me temporary solutions to fill a void that no man can ever fill anyway and asking any man to do so is asking for too much, I can even go as far as to say, it is asking for the impossible. This is the type of void that can only be filled by drinking from the fountain of life, from which you will never thirst again, Jesus Christ is that fountain.
When I read my bible it tells me, Matthew 19:5 “…therefore a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This passage and other passages like it, have no mention about I, a woman of God, going out hunting for a man, on some “oh I need a man”, what I need or who I need is Jesus.
Furthermore I am bone of his bones, flesh of his flesh, he will definitely find me, he knows me and I him.
“Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,” what this passage says to me is, that God created with a purpose and a role one to each one, and by giving myself to Christ, is taking up and fully understanding the role of a female in His kingdom. And this also means that I must respect the role of a male or rather the role my husband has to play and never overstepping (flirting, enticing him in any way to come my way) trying to help him in his role of leaving his father and his mother and joining together with me (his wife). Understanding my role, is understanding who I am in Christ, and what God expects from me as His child.
This I know for certain; God does not want me wasting my time trying to find a man, when He has already found him for me (think Amazing Grace:). He says I should seek first His Kingdom and all these things will be added unto me (Husband included :), why should I toil and sweat, trying to look all dapper so the brothers at church can recognize (if I am not made of them, then they are sure to notice and pay attention to the wrong things about me, e.g. my body, my this and my that) and end up falling into sin trying to find something He Himself made? He created marriage, and He the almighty God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, does not need my help to join me to my husband. As for me and my single-hood will worship and adore the Lord, while I’m waiting, because I know my being single is not a state of oppression, but rather it is a privilege I have been afforded to serve and submit to my Lord God with all of my being. What I do while I am single-hood will sustain me in my marriage.
Bringing things into perspective:
So am I on the lookout for Mr Right? No, I don’t have to, my husband knows me and I know him…
