Fear causes us to make alot of unwise decisions, especially when it comes to relationships... The fear of feeling left out.. The fear of being single at a certain age (as if being in a relationship is an achievement).. The fear of a person we "think" is perfect for us, ending up with someone else.. The fear of missing out on our childbearing years, and never being able to have children, etc. ..... This type of fear creates desperation.... A desperation that causes us to disregard all wisdom and intellect, and try to force things into place in our lives.. (which ultimately leads to pain and heartache).
But if we would trust in God, we'd see that we don't have to try to create our own blessing... Proverbs 10:22 says that "The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and he adds NO sorrow with it." ..... God knows what we like! He knows what we find attractive. He even knows the very number of hairs on our head (Luke 12:7)! So when GOD blesses us with a mate, He's gonna make sure that we receive everything we wanted, and more! We don't have to chase anyone, we don't have to settle for just anyone who comes our way, nor do we have to randomly date trying to find Mr. or Mrs. Right... All we have to do is wait on God... A slow-cooked meal beats the microwave!
Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart." ....... Matthew 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things [Your heart's desires] will be added to you." ........ The only relationship we need to work on, is our relationship with the LORD.... Stay encouraged (reader), aaaaaand wait......
If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know how much God truly loves us and desires the best for us.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd have the direction and guidance needed to excel in our daily lives, careers and achieve our life's goals.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know what our purpose is in life.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd have wisdom and standards when getting involved in relationships (instead of getting our hearts broken over, and over... and over).... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know that we don't have to settle with having a broken home, we can establish a LOVING family.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd have the wisdom how to PROPERLY raise our children.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know how to truly forgive and let go of deep-rooted pain and childhood hurts.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know how to love, trust and appreciate our neighbor (with no hidden agendas).... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd know that we can be free of fear, worry, doubt, anxiety, grief, hatred, sicknesses, mental illnesses, poverty, etc.... If only we would read our Bibles, we'd stop settling for less, knowing that our lives can be 10X BETTER
If only we would read our Bibles........
