That Special Someone

 

(Ecclesiastes 9:9) Life is short, and you love your wife, so enjoy being with her. This is what you are supposed to do as you struggle through life on this earth.

(Ephesians 5:31-32) “That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a great secret, but I am talking about the Messiah and the church.”

 

 

We all need that special someone in our lives that completely understands us and is everything to us. That someone that we can completely trust, who will never fail us, never make us feel small or afraid to share and become vulnerable. That special someone who will always back us up in front of others and who knows every dark secret about us and still decides to stay with us. The one we can’t wait to get home to and simply sit quietly and spend time with and feel that we are loved and appreciated. I’m not talking about your spouse, but about God.

Yes, we do need all these qualities and many more in a spouse to really enjoy our marriage, but none of this happens if we first have not learned to be in love with Christ. What we see in Hollywood and Bollywood, for the most part, is manmade and very far from the reality of being committed to a long-term relationship. Most of what we live through those movies is only good for a girlfriend or the initial stages of a relationship.

A long-term commitment requires you to become that special someone first in order to experience what you want your spouse to become for you. It requires modifying your complete mindset regarding life and its priorities, especially if you marry late in life. It requires admitting that you are probably asking more from your spouse than what you can actually provide yourself. When you marry that special someone, you are tied to their weaknesses and strengths, it’s a package deal.

It is interesting how God expresses in the Bible the union between Christ and the church (the believers) as a marriage. It is sacred and something that is serious and forever. It is not the fuzzy, lovey-dovey feelings we experience at the beginning before all the problems arise. Sure, there might be things about following Christ that we disagree with, don’t understand, or even don’t like doing, but we can never deny the love He has for us and the way He continues to forgive all our faults.


If your marriage is not perfect, it’s probably because you are a part of it. We all need to become that someone special.


Prayers
• Heavenly Father, Your chariots that are twenty thousand even thousands of thousands. He who makes the clouds His chariot and walks on wings. He who rides on the clouds.
• Thank You, Father, that You have that someone special for every one of us.
• Thank You that we can completely trust in Your love for us and that we will never be disappointed.
• Forgive us for trying to imitate in our marriage what we see on TV instead of what You have described in Your Word.
• Forgive us for only blaming our spouse for all things, and not working on our own faults at the same time.
• Give us today the courage to change our ways and to submit to your plans to enjoy our marriage.
• Thank You that Christ loves us and He gave His life for us to be with Him.

• We ask in Jesus’ Mighty name. Amen
