So on Thursday 10th March 2011 I went to the wedding of a close university friend, and what a beautiful ceremony it was! It felt like only yesterday that I met Glenda in the halls of Kingston University and now, 3-4 years down the line, I was sitting in the pews of a Baptist Church watching her recite her vows to the man of her dreams *tears*
The whole day was so beautiful, but it was the words of wisdom from the Pastor on the day that had the biggest impact on me and caused me to think about the world we live in (hence the reason for this blog).
It is fair to say that most of us are searching for the “perfect” man or woman who will complete us and fulfil our every need and desire. For us guys, we look for a beautiful woman who is God-fearing, loving, considerate, can cook, family orientated, sociable, understanding... (the list goes) and for the women, well you know what you want :-P But the question is, how many of us have examined ourselves and asked “Do I see the perfect partner in me?”
Many of us are discouraged because all we seem to attract are useless people who only care about themselves. However, the reality of the matter is that you will attract “hoes” if you walk and talk like a pimp. The truth of the matter is if you want a King, you better start walking and talking like a Queen!
I couldn’t believe it when we went to McDonalds (before the wedding ceremony - don't judge me lol) and saw that the ever-so-famous £1.99 ‘Happy Meal’ was now £2.49(at the time of publish). The world is no longer what it used to be! The Christian principles on which our country was once based, have been removed and we wonder why there is chaos and anarchy everywhere?!
God blessed marriage from the Garden of Eden so it is something that is very dear to God’s heart. One of the main reasons, in my opinion, why our society has gone downhill is because the devil has broken up the family; the building block of every society, where the husband and wife are the foundation which the home is built on.
When things seem to go wrong in the home you must understand that you don’t love someone because they are worthy of your love, but it’s your love for them that makes them worthy. So if your single and you have been praying for your ‘perfect partner’ try adding the prayer “Lord make me more like you and teach me how to love.”
If you’re in a relationship and things seem to be going wrong, just allow Jesus to fix it. Remember, when things were going wrong at the wedding in Galilee, Jesus showed up and fixed it.
Remember to pray for your friends and family, because when you are weak and cannot pray, it’s the prayers of your family and friends that keeps you.
Love is a decision we make not a feeling that magically appears. So from now on, instead of me trying to find my lost rib in the wilderness, my prayer is, “Lord, help me to be more like you.” For "I want my wife to be so hiding in God that I must seek Him to find her"
I pray that you remain blessed as we seek God for more understanding and wisdom in this subject.
