Waiting on the Lord for Your Soul Mate

Waiting on the Lord for Your Soul Mate

Many people get discouraged and disheartened when they cannot find a good lasting relationship. People also try to rush a relationship because they have the opportunity to be in one. However, the Bible tells us in Psalm 27 that we need to be patient and trust in God to show us the right person to date.

As humans, we tent to get anxious and want to find our future soul mate as soon as we want to. This may cause us to get discouraged when we don’t find a person right away. God already knows who, and where your soul mate is. He also knows when and where you will meet that person; so don’t take take finding your future soul mate into your own hands. Trust in the Lord and he will guide you in the right direction. If we try to take things into our own hands, then we will get discouraged because we are not God. “Be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD” remember also not to rush into a relationship just because you get the opportunity to be in one.

We also tend to rush into a relationship just because we are desperate to be in one, even if we know deep inside that the person we are dating is not meant for us. If you know that you are getting yourself into a relationship that won’t work out for you, then get out because that isn’t what God has planned for you. If you try to do things without God, then obviously you will not find success!

Remember that the Lord knows you better than anybody and knows exactly who your soul mate is so there is no need to rush things. Have faith in the Lord and pray and when his (not yours) time is right, you will meet that person that God has made just for you and find a true long lasting, God honoring relationship.

      I am doing a conference for teenage girls on “Waiting on Prince Charming”. I am going to make them a book mark so they will have something they can refer back to. I want to make WAIT an acronym, but I am struggling to come up with something. This is what I was thinking. Let me know your ideas please!
      W- welcoming
      A- amazing
      I- intentions
      T- together
      I feel that girls need to wait on that amazing partner that the Lord has planned for them. I think that they need other girls to help them and hold them accountable. Please let me know what you think.

        One of the hardest things to do in life is to wait for that which you long for but the Bible tells us that those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. Waiting goes with trusting God to do it for you. He is Able to do and He will do but just trust and wait for his time which come with the renewing of your strength. The time of waiting brings out many good things out of the waiter. So wait on God for that desire partner my friend.

          i think it is the best option. there you can never be disaappointed because God knows each and every one of us better than we know ourselves. so waiting on God is like waiting for God to pick that perfect person that will be everything we need and everything that we never thought we needed.

            Its so hard to wait, not knowing if the right person is coming along. Life catches up with us, friends get married. Being alone is so painful, its like a void that can’t be filled. Every wedding you go to, you’re reminded of your loneliness, each time you meet with friends and you are the only one without a partner, without someone to dance with. How can God help us to be strong and patient?

              For anyone who thinks that the “one” will just magically show up on your doorstep you’re mistaken. Being a Christian isn’t a spectator sport. God never said sit by and do nothing and everything will fall in place. You have to prepare the field for the harvest. Things with God are many times a cooperative effort (though he is obviously the more powerful force). There’s nothing wrong with dating various people. If you don’t date anyone you will never know someone enough to even know if they are the one. You’re not going to figure that out by seeing them at church once a week. Now I certainly do not mean dating for the heck of dating or any other manner that it is done in the world. I mean to say that it’s not wrong to have a relationship with someone that is moral and personal rather than physical. And you obviously shouldn’t get to emotionally far either since you are not positively w/that person forever. Bottom line as a guy: you will never find Miss Right by never going up to girls and meeting them or never asking a girl out on a wholesome date; no girl is going to come and show you love at 1st sight. For girls: you’re never going to find Prince Charming if you turn down every guy because you’re not sure he’s the one; you’re never going to be sure if you don’t actually know anybody well enough to know so. Relationships are about knowing someone personally and deeply. They’re not about knowing facts or qualities but knowing someone for who they are in and of themselves. One can never know someone is the one or know if they should pursue someone as the one without knowing someone in this manner (and again this is in a manner that is wholesome and moderate).

                As I study the scriptures, I have learned that waiting on the Lord is indeed an active process. However, is going various dates the answer? Here are some examples that make me stop and think:
                – When Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well, He told the woman to get her husband. She confessed that she was not married. Jesus knew this; He knew she had 5 husbands and the one she was currently with wasn’t her husband either. In other words, this woman was known to be romantically involved with various men. She was ostracized by the town because of her morally questionable behavior. This is why she drew water during the hottest time of the day, when no one else was around…(John 4)
                – Have you ever thought about why God destroyed the earth by the flood in Noah’s day? It was because the people chose who they wanted to marry (Gen 6:1-7)…
                – When God created Adam, He noticed that Adam was alone so He created Eve especially for him. God brought Eve to Adam (Gen 2:22); Adam did not have to go out searching for her. In fact, Adam was asleep!
                I am single myself so I know what it feels like to wait…and wait. I do hang out with people of the opposite sex, but as of late, I try to avoid one-on-one situations. Having at least one other person present helps me to guard my heart and reduce the potential for inappropriate situations. It is possible to get to know someone without dating the person. In many ways, by not dating someone you can get a better view of who that person is. Usually, when people go on dates, they try to impress their date and hide any “imperfections.” It seems that people do this all the way until after the wedding vows are exchanged and the honeymoon is over…then the true person comes out…perhaps this is a reason why so many get divorced within the first couple years of marriage…
                Every time I meet/see someone I’m attracted to, I ask God about them. He answers me, either through a scripture or through a situation. So far, He has said no…but He always shows me a glimpse of why that person and I would have not been a good match. God knows each person’s heart and their destiny. If my spouse and I have clashing morals and/or purposes in life, we will not fulfill our destiny together in Christ. That would be tragic. God has our best interests in mind. He knows who will truly love me, help me grow spiritually, and will push me to greatness…and vice versa. Since God is the Creator of the universe, I view Him as the life and relationship expert. He has a flawless track record of matchmaking so I’ve decided to take Him up on His offer and let Him bring me and my spouse together. Every time I’ve tried to hook-up with different individuals just to see how things go, they’ve failed. I want to do something different, something effective/efficient. I want to do it God’s way. I have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
