When You Getting Married?

Today's message had me thinking about the true purpose of marriage. As I gave it some thought, I came to the realization that I may never get married.

Believe it or not, there is more to life than being married. Not every individual is meant to be married. On the other hand, we may be meant for marriage but just not right now. So many women are searching for love and looking for another individual to complete them.

In order to make someone else happy, you first need to figure out what makes you happy. Figure out what your purpose is here on earth. Set some goals for yourself and then achieve them. If you can do good by yourself then it is likely that you will do good with someone else.

More importantly, make God the center of your life. Without him, any relationship is doomed to fail. I thought of the people that I know with successful long term marriages and one particular couple popped into mind. It is sad to think about how marriage isn't really valued by society anymore and that individuals close to me are no longer married. Actually, the majority of the people that I know come from divorced homes, broken homes, or broken marriages.

So, my eagerness to get married is very small. I'll get married when and if God decides that I should be married. Until then, I will continue to live my life. Leaning to God for understanding concerning his will for my life.
