Are You Really Ready To Get Married?
“This is my sixth girlfriend in a year, I just never seem to get them to stay. To be honest Cole, I don’t think I can ever do without having a lady in my life. It’s not easy to be a fine boy now, they always seem to flock around me. I no be a player o so I act the nice guy and most times pick one out of the ladies as my girlfriend. Man must have bae now.”
“Where’s this conversation heading to Flo? Because I’m sure you didn’t call to tell me about your escapades with ladies.”
“The thing is, I’m so used to having baes that once one opts out, it doesn’t take me a week to find another to fill that space. I crave that emotional connection with a lady so much that without having one in my life I feel so lonely and incomplete; It’s like they fill a void in me. I don’t even know what it means to be single anymore Cole, because the need for that emotional connection with a lady is always there. Do you think there’s something wrong with me Cole?”
“If that’s a way of telling me you need my counsel, Oh yes! a whole lot is wrong with you Flo. You see it’s only God that can fill up that void you said you feel within and not the ladies. You have abandoned your relationship with God which is the most crucial and got carried away with unhealthy relationship with ladies hence, the emptiness.
The void is there for a reason Flo but people fill it up with all sorts of wrong things such as sex, unhealthy relationships, drugs and so on all in the name of looking for completeness. You forget that no man/woman can complete you except Christ.
Colossians 2:10 (KJV) clearly established this truth that we are whole in Him.”
And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.
To the Flos out there, you need Jesus to fill your voids. Not sex, drugs, alcohol or relationships!
None of this can fill it up except Jesus; I repeat none.
Have you lost your way?
Please find your way back to Him. It doesn’t matter how much you’ve messed up, please retrace your steps back home. He’s waiting on you…
Remember you will only attract your kind, so you need to be whole in Christ to attract that whole partner out there.
Your partner is to complement you, not complete you!
Because if you haul a job meant for God on your partner you will only end up frustrating them out of the relationship, so allow God work in you.
Let Him fill up that empty well inside of you with His love so that you’ll stop jumping from ladies to ladies for completeness.
Allow Him mend that broken, battered heart that is closed up to love due to emotional trauma so that you’ll be able to love again.
Don’t grow comfortably in your mess. Please let Him fill you up with His love. Be patient and allow Him work in you.
Dear bros and sisters, please strive for that spiritual intimacy daily because it’s more vital than anything and you will see God order your steps aright to someone who loves Him enough to deserve you.
Because the truth of the matter is, everything we will ever need is in God’s presence, all we just need to do is to stay there and stop running around.
