Matthew 19: “…at the beginning He made them male and female…for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh… what therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Find the person that you want to struggle with, fight with, care for, forgive;
someone you want to serve, build up, and hangout with.
At the same time, find someone who won’t over look your quirks and who will not let you get away with less than your best.
When life is difficult, this person will put wind beneath you, will stand up for you, will see the best in what you do.
You need someone who will help you discover who you are by supporting you through your mistakes and cheering you on during your victories.
Find the person you would want on your team and whose opinions you value.
Finally, marry someone who draws you closer to your purpose and life-breath and who lifts your up to your Father’s hands with his actions and words.
“And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” (Isaiah 61)
