Dear married person:



If God says it's not good for man to be alone, why do people make others feel bad for not wanting to be alone?
I am utterly tired of well meaning Christians who preach at singles to just be in love with Jesus and you should just love yourself...that's baloney. Yes, Jesus should be the lover of our soul, but that doesn't take care of the need of having a sexual, earthly mate. God would have never made Eve had He not had a intentional reason for Adam to have a wife. Marriage is a good thing. It's God's plan and His way to show His mirrored relationship of Jesus as the Groom and the Church as His bride.
If you're already married...that's great!  Be blessed...
But if you see or hear of a single sister or brother in Christ who desires to be married too, don't belittle their need, feelings, or desire to have what you have. It comes off as uncaring and judgmental. Seriously. Just pray for them to be blessed with a godly mate. Single people shouldn't have to feel bad for desiring what God designed them to be and want in the first place...and it doesn't mean they are less spiritual, less of a Christian, or weak for wanting to be married. ~ A Modern Day Ruth

  1. I find myself in just that position, I am alone and desirous of a mate - but I am also aware that HE wants what is best for me; in fact, since HE LOVES me more than I love myself, and HE knows so much better than do I what is in my best interest (and that includes the possibility of never having a mate) that I must have patience and wait for HIM to provide .. Perhaps HE is making me into what I am searching for ..

  5. Yes,yes,yes! I was talking to the Lord about this same thing! I couldn't understand why Christians address this issue this way. The Lord Himself saw Adam and said it wasn't good for him to be alone so then why is it so wrong for me to desire a mate? Thank you for confirming what was in my heart all along

  7. Interesting enough me and my dad did Genesis this weekend and also did the part where Adam sought a helpmate or equal between the animals that he was supposed to give names to.I agree it sometimes feel a bit biased if people say a person should feel ok being alone, but to a person who loses their partner or divorced everyone jumps in to help look for a partner again.Just a opinion.

  9. Yes, and Amen! It conveys the message that somehow married people earned the blessing because they achieved some place of spiritual superiority. We all need Him alike, and it is indeed good to desire the things God intended! he sets the lonely in families..he is a good father!
