Sample His Word

Marriage: In Your Heart and in Your Mind - love and marriageAlthough we are in our present state of singleness, most of us look forward to being blessed with the perfect mate that God has chosen for us.   Johnny Cochran’s tag line was - - preparation, preparation, preparation. Keeping that in mind, rest assured that while you wait, God is preparing you for your perfect mate - - just as He is preparing your mate for you.
The Word of God speaks of Adam and the "birth" of his mate in Genesis 2:18 - "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him a help meet for him."
So God caused Adam to go into a deep sleep and removed a rib, fashioning Eve - - Adam’s perfect mate.  I imagine that Adam looked upon her with adoration in his eyes, in awe at the beautiful woman that God had given unto him. 
But what is more astonishing is that in that very instant, Adam and Eve were married.  No wedding gown, no tux.  At that very moment they were mated to one another by God.  At that very moment, Adam and Eve were married to one another in their hearts and in their minds - - just as God wants us to be.  Genesis 2:23-25.
So what has happened in many of the marriages today?  It’s simple – there is no commitment to one another.  They may marry in their minds, thinking of mere conveniences - - finances, physical attributes, or even a casual or business partnership.  But all too often they leave out the heart - -the commitment. 
You see, long before an engagement ring is presented, long before a wedding dress is bought or you're fitted for your tuxedo, and certainly long before you walk down the aisle, there must be a marriage in your hearts and in your minds. 
But taking this understanding of marriage a step further, the Word also says that we must obey the laws of the land.  So please don’t let this information lead you to believe that there is no cause to legalize your marriage.  Wherever you reside, the law is clear as it pertains to marriages - - and we must obey the laws of the land.
Understanding God’s intentions for us, makes it easier to obey His will and be stronger in the faith.  Be patient, your day is coming.

Alvaro, Thanks so much for visiting and I really appreciate your comment. This article is close to my heart. I often wondered why marriages don't work and I finally have a good understanding. I had to go back to Genesis - and there was my answer. God bless and please visit again. TSB Publisher

I liked the way you wrote it. You did not divert from the topic even once which I have not seen in many other writers.

What a joy to hear from you and thanks so much for the compliment! I often wonder about my readers from other countries. Marriage is definitely ordained by God and should be treated as such. The love that's in our heart and mind is an imbedded truth within our soul. A true marriage, based on love and respect is so beautiful and should be considered as one of the 7 wonders of the world! I look forward to hearing from you again. Be blessed!

Thank you so much for writing. Let me explain - - This concept is simple. God has never complicated our lives - we make things complicated ourselves. Often times we tend to over think matters and become anxious, making hasty decisions. These decisions often lead to serious mistakes. I would like to invite you to read another article, "Celebrate Your Singleness" and concentrate on the "God's View of Singleness" in the second section. This article addresses some of your comments mentioned above. Thanks so much for visiting - I look forward to hearing from you again!
