How do I know the Right One

How do I know the Right One

I wish there was a perfect answer to this question. The truth is: If you have been praying and preparing yourself, you will know. There will be signs; you will have peace in your heart. There will be answers to questions and everything will begin to fall in place.

The right one will not take you away from God, your calling and purpose. If you are beginning to feel lost and far from God and his purpose for your life, you are not with the right one. The right one will not make you feel inferior but will make you feel like you can fly and accomplish great things; will spur you on to more than you are.

The right one will understand that marriage is for a purpose and so will seek to find and fulfil that purpose with you. The right one will respect your spirit, soul and BODY; will not rob you of your ‘pride and dignity’ and make you sin against God.  John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

The right one will pray, plan, prepare and build with you. The right one will listen to your dreams and dream with you. With the right one you are ‘you’, you don’t have be fake. He/she loves you for YOU. If you are constantly on your toes, not sure what he/she will complain about next, then you are not with the right person. Life is hard enough as it is, why complicate it some more?

The right one will celebrate you and not keep you a secret!!! How does that even work? When you truly love someone, you want to talk to them all the time, be around them and share things with them. How can he/she not be proud of you?

The right one will give his/her time, money, attention and will want to share everything. If he/she only wants to take and take and take….then that is Not THE ONE. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he GAVE his only son….”

May God help us be and find the right ONE!

Marriage is a home; a refuge against the outside storms. And like any house, it requires a strong, lasting foundation. If tended to, it will thrive, but if neglected, it will wither and die.

Me, Marriage and You

Me, Marriage and You

Your marriage is unique to you and your spouse. No one should tell you how to live out your home. You have to figure it out yourself, aligning with God’s word; however you need the ‘YOU’ factor. You are not an island because you are married – you still work, have family, friends and people. You need to have healthy relationships that feed other aspect of your life. You will have to do things with other people. Sometimes they may share their opinion of how marriage should be but the decision is entirely yours. Even in a relationship, refuse to let anyone talk to or about your partner disrespectfully. Refuse to make every issue you have public; draw a boundary on parental/friends’ influence on your relationship. If you do not draw a line in your relationship you will struggle in marriage!

Marriage is for two people (man & woman), however don’t lose yourself. Let’s encourage each other to have healthy relationships…..you are not a recluse; you will end up choking each other. Do not dissociate yourself from everyone, it is not healthy. Let him have a sport or something he loves to do that is not necessarily about you and let her have time out with the girls. But please remember that evil communication corrupts good manners (1 Cor. 15:33). Surround yourself with godly friends.

Don’t shut yourself away from the world, you will have undue expectations from your spouse; he/she is not the answer, Jesus is!!! You can’t live oblivious of other people but you can make your marriage your business only!

Thanks for reading, do share your thoughts!

We fall in love, get married, have children and raise a family. Over the years, love deepens and the bond strengthens but in some cases, the feeling of marital satisfaction waxes and wanes. Lasting love requires affection and respect. A great marriage is not just about what you have but what you do to make a relationship stronger, safer, more caring and committed.

Marriage is a home; a refuge against the outside storms. And like any house, it requires a strong, lasting foundation. Couples are expected to weather the storms together. Realize there are things you can do to ensure better times than worse in your marriage, to make riding out the storms smoother and easier. Believing that the good times will continue to roll on their own is setup for disappointment and disillusionment.

Marriage, like a beautiful garden, requires skill and constant attention. If tended to, it will thrive, but if neglected, it will wither and die. It takes work — for all parties!!!
