Tiffany BetheaDecember 19 at 1:49pm: 1. I would say don’t rush it. Be on the lookout and make yourself available/noticeable, but don’t rush it. God’s timing is perfect and when interupted it can add unneeded drama, stress and confusion to your life. I know it’s hard when you see everyone else coupled up around you, but just think of these two things: #1 The couple may look happy to the outside but you are not aware of what difficulties they’re facing when alone, and #2 Just remain patient because when that person DOES enter your life, there’s no denying that your union is a God ordained thing.
2. I would say that the most important thing (and it may sound cliche but Ive learned that it stands true) is PRAYER. Without it all kinds of issues can occur. I mean it’s already hard trying to bring 2 different personalities together by itself, but when you add unneeded drama due to lack of prayer, it’s even worse and hard to recover. Prayer is a powerful thing, and it needs to happen individually and corporately as a couple consistently. When you forget about praying that allows the enemy to slip in and DESTROY your union. And yes I said DESTROY because that’s what the enemy comes to do: Steal, Kill, and Destroy. Prayer is a must. I’ve also noticed that through prayer you are able to stay on one accord with your spouse. What I mean when I say one accord is that, you all will begin doing things like finishing each others sentences without even trying. So, Please “don’t forget the family prayer” :-)
One other thing I would like to point out about Christian Marriages is don’t forget that your spouse is still a human and subject to mistakes. Just because they are saved and annointed doesn’t mean they don’t have weaknesses. And the enemy sees those weaknesses and will try to make it easier for them to fall to temptation. So you must always be in warfare for your spouse because he/she is saved and anointed.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my thoughts/opinions. :-) Let me know how it goes and if you need anything else. To God be the Glory.
