man + woman = together forever


Do you know anyone who has been divorced? Do you have friends whose parents are separated? Most likely you won't have to look far to find someone hurting from the consequences of divorce. It is a widespread sin among believers and lost people alike.
When I see families that I have known my whole life, friends I have grown up with, being torn apart by divorce, my heart breaks for them.
It makes me mad and frustrated to see people just give up on their marriage. How could they put their family through that? How could they be so selfish?
Seeing all the heartache and destruction divorce causes, it makes me even more sure that no matter who I marry or what situation I am in, I will not divorce my husband. God says in Malachi 2:16 that he hates divorce.

I'm sure you girls know what I'm talking. You see the the hurt, you see the pain, you see how many people give up on their marriage. This is why it is so important for us as young woman to make sure that we are careful when we choose our husbands. We can't just marry any man who tells us we are pretty and pays us attention. We have to wait and marry God's best. Don't settle for just the good or the okay, but the very best that God had chosen for you. When you marry in God's will, it will be hard, but it will be so fulfilling and worth it. I have never been married, but from what I've seen and heard, it's tough. It's not always a walk in the park. But you know what else I have seen? People who are committed to each other; who encourage each other in the Lord, who put the other person high above themselves, who look not to their desires and needs, but the desires and needs of the other; I have seen marriages like that work. I have seen fruit and blessing come from that, because they love God. Love is a choice. Marriage is a decision to come together with another person for life. It is not something to be taken lightly. Right now, we are to prepare ourselves for our future husbands by studying God's Word and growing in our relationship with Him. That we be key in your future marriage. The closer you are to the Lord, the closer you and your husband will be to each other.

1 Corinthians 13:8
Love never fails.

In His Love,

Amen! :]] I really love this post. Though it will be a while before we find him, the right guy IS out there and you shouldn't settle for someone who is just "good enough." Thanks for posting this!
