That Special Someone
I know this is a very common problem for young chrisitans today. We tend to try to search for that one special person that God has for us. Sometimes we even have an idea of how that person is suppose to be, so we search and search looking for those qualities that we assume God wants in our companion, but even when we do find someone with those qualities, they still end up not being the one we hoped for. Why does this happen? I to have had this problem, plenty of times!..Look at it like this, In the book of Genesis, God let Adam search through the animals and name them, trying to find a good helper,companion for himself, but he never found them. Of course God knew that Adam wasn't going to find a suitable helper in these animals, so why did God have Adam go and search? He wanted to show Adam that a suitable companion and helper for himself, he could never find. It will have to be given to him, by God. It's the same way with us. We constantly search for our life time companion, instead of letting God send them to us, otherwise we will get so tired of searching that we will eventually end up settling, which we shouldn't do at all. We have to wait on God to send us that one who is flesh of your flesh and bone of your bone. A person like that you can't seek and find. A person like that has to be given to you and the only person who can give it to you is God. We can't have this picture of what our partner is suppose to be or look like. It's up to God to choose who he wants for us. Take Adam, when he saw Eve, he embraced her, saying "this is flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone." He didn't care how curvy she was or how pretty she looked. He loved her unconditionally because he knew she was from God, specifically for him. That's how we should embrace whoever God has in store for us.
