The Power of The Ring

Updated on January 13, 2011

Buzz Buzz Buzz!!! Amber blindly hits the snooze button on her alarm.  She sits up in bed and opens her eyes, slowly yawning and stretching her arms above her head.  She thinks to herself, yesterday was the best day of her life so far…Anthony had proposed to her. She was so surprised!!  He came to her job and involved each one of her co-workers in a fabulous proposal.

 

She looked down just as the sun glimmered off the large diamond ring that now rested on the ring finger of her left hand. She breathed a sigh of relief. Thinking to herself, “This is what I have been waiting for, someone who loves me enough to marry me.  No more do I have to be one of those single ladies hoping to be married, I am worth something now and can’t anyone tell me any differently!!

 

She excitedly jumped out of bed and her head swarmed of thoughts of her being better than her hopelessly single friends. “Oh…which poor souls will I have as my bridesmaids…” she thought as she giggled to herself…

 

The power of the ring…

 

This may be an extreme example, but can you see yourself anywhere in this example?

 

 It has been drilled in our heads since we were little girls, yes I have had the idea of my wedding, the colors, etc. probably since middle school. The dreams started at a young age, dreams of a guy that would take me away from the miseries of life.  We would live in a mansion, with a maid, a butler, a nanny, a personal chef, and could just shop on a never ending supply of money…true happiness! YEAH RIGHT!!!! Hahahahaha!

 

You don’t need a ring on your finger to know you are validated; you have been validated and chosen by the King of the Universe. He created you in His image, so why is there such a desperation to get another of his creations to see that?

 

The single state should be a time where you draw closer to the true lover of your soul.  This is a time for Him to build you up.  Having a ring on your finger should not be a self-esteem boost.

 

The coming together of two people when done right is for the glory of God and setting forth His purpose with the union.  It is not meant to be a union of co-dependency where each tries to validate and find their self-worth through the other person.
