Today, I want to share with you an essential lesson from one of my courses.
This lesson comes from my course The Pre-Love Runway; A special Free Bonus available only to students who are enrolled in my signature course Ready For The One.
In my experience, I’ve found that a lot of women are rushing to get married for the wrong reasons. Women feel pressure from their society, their family, friends and especially the church, therefore, they rush into a relationship and end up regretting it.
So, let’s examine some these 3 great reasons to get married. On their own each one is good. But, when you combine the power of all 3 reasons to get married, you create a dynamic and powerful positive energy that God honors. This is a winning combo that will help you go from Single to married.
1st Great Reason to get Married.
YOU WANT TO BE A HELPMATE.
Let’s begin, in the garden of Eden God recognized that is not good for a man to be alone. Adam needed a companion. Someone to talk to, to problem solve with, and to love…
Therefore, God created Eve.
Look, Eve wasn’t there just to serve Adam sausage and eggs. She was there to compliment him. Together they would bring life into the world. They would rise and fall Together. And, together, they would know and worship God.
If Adam had needed extra muscle; he had horses and elephants to work with.
Or, if Adam wanted a sense of control, God had already given him dominion over all the animals.
Look, if all Adam needed to keep warm at night, he could have cuddled a sheep.
Next, God didn’t create Eve because Adam needed an extra set of hands, nor did He create her to
God created her for love, communication, vision. He created women to nurture and nourish. He created her because he wanted to add an extra dose of beauty to the world. A softer, delicate, and tender force for creating life.
As a wife, your primary role is to serve.
You must be prepared to give and pour out from a place of love.
And don’t misunderstand me. The primary role of a husband is to serve as well. Above all, you must be fully committed to serving each other.
This is challenging because of the politics of our modern day language.
These days we confuse serving, with enslavement.
First, you must recognize that true service is a free will offering. You do it because you want to not because you’re being forced to. Being a wife is a voluntary choice. Your service to your husband and family is a blessing and not a curse.
Listen, if you’re feeling resentment or bitterness around the idea of serving, take a step back.
Remember, that Jesus served the Father, from a place of love and devotion.
To serve is to trust.
Without trust, a marriage can’t succeed.
2nd Great Reason to Get Married.
YOU HAVE A BURNING DESIRE TO CREATE A FAMILY.
Whether you have children or not, a married couple is a family.
A wife is responsible for turning a house into a home.
Groceries into a meal.
I love this quote:
“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby. GWilliam Golding
iveher a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.”
This is your gift. To multiply and enlarge.
This is why Christians praise the Proverbs 31 woman.
The Proverbs 31 woman is the epitome of biblical femininity.
She does it all. And far too often her success makes most Christian ladies feel like failures in comparison.
Your job as a wife is not to become the Proverbs 31 woman. She is a caricature. The Proverbs 31 woman is an example of what is possible when you are following God’s vision for your life. It’s a song of praise to the woman who chooses to honor God by being the best version of herself and serving those around her from a place of joy and abundance.
Marriage is really about expanding your purpose and vision.
3rd Great Reason to Get Married.YOU WANT YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO BE SACRED.
Sometimes, we get into a relationship on our own. God’s not there.
Maybe you started seeing someone, and one thing led to another, and now you feel stuck because it’s not going anywhere.
You must always remember that a marriage is a holy covenant. It’s not just about you and him…
…It’s a vow between You, GOD, and Him.
So if you want your relationship to last, you have to give it to God.
All too often, people start a relationship on their own, they realize that it’s not a very pleasant experience and mistakenly think that a wedding ring, and maybe a few kids will fix it.
This is a huge mistake!
A marriage must start with YOU & GOD.
You’ve got to commit to God before you commit to a man.
This doesn’t mean that Jesus is your husband, ( A Christian phrase that sounds nice but isn’t biblical)
It means that your relationship with God must precede your relationship with a man.
AND… it means marrying a man who cares more about his own relationship with God, then with you.
When you put your desire to know and please God, ahead of your desire to be married, you are able to make your marriage vows from a place of integrity.
