"Let God Choose Your Life Time Mate"

Updated on June 19, 2013

"let God Choose Your Life Time Mate"

As children mature into young adulthood, they become preoccupied with finding their Mr or Miss Right in life, unfortunately we do a very poor job of choosing our dream mate for life. When choosing our mate we become very superficial, because we're looking at the package on the outside, and this is the factor that cause us to make snap decisions. We like what we see, because it's pleasant to the eyes, so we choose him or her for their great looks; and hadn't thought about the character of the person, at all. when you're young , you put more emphasises on looks than we do, on whether or not the person has a good heart , or if they're loving and trust worthy. This type of choosing is totally silly and the benefits you reap will hardly worth boasting or bragging about. This is the reason, I think we should trust God for choosing our life time mate because God don't choose trash and he doesn't deal in mess. When in search of a perfect mat for ourselves, we want only the best that God has to offer us. So, we make sure we specify to God what you truly want in a mate, although , he already knows exactly what you want and need in a mate.

sometimes we choose poorly, which causes us a lot of heart break, pain and eventually a divorce, because of the poor choices we made for a life time mate. When God chooses for us, there's a godly guarantee that we will have the best life time mate that God has chosen especially just for us.. We don't have to worry about whether it's going to work out or not because we know our Lord doesn't make mistake of any kind. So, Instead of going through a life of impatience, and trying to choose the right life time mate for us, let's trust God to do the picking and choosing of a perfect mate just for us. When God pick your mate, we know he or she is a winner in life and in love because God picked them for us. So, if you want a mate chosen just for you, ask God and he will send you a mate that you will love and cherish the rest of your days and you want have to worry about grounds for a divorce, because once God put someone together, no man can put asunder, you're joined together for life and eternity.

      Im a little confused. I've been going out with a women for about a 18 months, off and on. I believe God has spoken to me about her being the one for me. But strangly, I'm not getting any recipication from her in that regard. Don't know whether to let go or wait for change? Totally frustrated!!!! Knowing everyone has a free will.

      Thank you Laquetta, for your v isit it and sharing your experience. I think we are very superficial people and we're always concerned with what's on the outside,when we should pay close attention to what's on the inside.we get so caught up with the outward appearance that we forget to search a person heart and lose out on a God sent mate. God you and your God given mate. Godspeed. creativeone59

      God has shown me in my dreams in a numberous of time, who my mate is. He isn't my type but the dreams were driving me crazy and I asked God why am I dreaming of this man. God came to me in another dream and told me that he's my husband. He may not be what I desire in the outside but his spirit is surly right. Now I have learned to accept what God has for me and allow God to have his way.

      Thank you Rational for your visit and comment, but I do believe in prayers and they do work,we just have to ask for the right things and expect for him to answer your prayers. Sometimes he answers us but we don't want to except the answers we get. Godspeed. creativeone59

      Sadly, it doesn't matter how hard you pray - it doesn't work.

      Good Morning Creativeone...your words I have found in an ontime matter. I have been preoccupied in searching for my true love. Knowing it is He who finds a wife, finds a good thing. However, my need for that human companion and communication had pulled me from God's will. So, thank you for confirming what God has been speaking to my spirit and I will try to stop, rest, and listen to his voice. His people hear his voice. Beautiful...thank you again. God Bless you truly!

      Thank you ashantina for your visit and comment. God does answer prayers and I believe if you ask him to send you a godly and loving mate he will. I don't believe in Luck, but Godspeed on your journey for your mate. creativeone59

      Yeah, But I need to admit that it is a tough decision to allow God to direct in the choice of a life partner, but it is the best thing to do.

      I couldn't agree more! I am teaching my children what courtship means. It is letting God know when the right time to send that special person into our lives and not all the dating stuff that teens do nowadays. Thanks for a great hub!

      This is a great hub! As a young person, I can totally relate with what you've said. It is easier to choose for good looks or because they're "cool". But, in the end being "cool" or looking good doesn't make a marriage work. It needs to go deeper and be more meaningful; it's needs to be centered on God.
