Have you found your soul mate?
Women, listen, until you find your perfect match your heart will never be satisfied. Is that person your husband, the one you are dating or the one you are hoping will someday love you back?
Most, if not all of us, have hoped for that “perfect mate,” someone who would meet our high standard of expectations. I am sorry to tell you that no woman I have ever met over the past two and half decades, women from many different backgrounds, cultures, nationalities, age groups, skin color, and belief systems, have truly found their knight in shining armor. The fantasy that one who will come or is coming to take his bride away on his white horse and then and only then they will both live happily ever after is simply not true.
Perhaps you felt that the joy in finding your perfect match was real and you believed that you were living your ideal life, but that feeling did not last. The dream vanished because of some challenges you faced in your life.
This is not a new phenomenon. It was written for us from the beginning. In Genesis 3:16, God told Eve “Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” This verse had troubled me for a long time. It seemed like God was saying to Eve that she had been misled by the devil, who convinced her that it is alright to be an independent woman apart from God. I pictured God saying to Eve that she did not trust Him enough to have her best interests in mind. I believed Eve was now a “soul with a hole” because she replaced the Lord with the imperfect Adam. Adam would now be her master because she would expect him to provid
Satan in his shrewdness persuaded Eve to think beyond God’s wisdom. It was as if Satan had said “Go ahead Eve; decide for yourself, you can take control of your life and your choices. Don’t allow anyone, including your Creator, to determine for you what to do with your body and your soul.” Satan’s pernicious ability to twist the truth to serve his purposes leads us far away from God’s perfect plan for our lives.e for her needs, relinquishing her emptiness, causing him to rule over her.
Then I asked myself, how could Adam replace God in both their lives? Perhaps by working the land to produce their sustenance, seemingly solely by his own efforts. Genesis 3:19 states, By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken.” Eve would ex
Sisters, I do not mean to imply that married life cannot be wonderful. In fact, the right mate is a gift from God and should not be taken lightly. However, I wish for us all to long for deep fellowship with our Lord and Savior who is the “perfect groom.” He is the only one who is able to make us whole again, the only one who can redeem and save us. Jesus is coming soon; Please get ready for his return. He is not going to take everyone to live with Him for eternity, but only the wise virgins who are tending their lamps. The virgins represent those who strive to live unceasingly according to the Bible. They are able to shine and glorify their Master through the power of the Holy Spirit, which is represented by the oil they have ready for their lamps. Mathew 25:1-13.pect from Adam what he could not possibly provide, things that she yearned for, such as security, joy, peace, fulfillment and purpose.
