The following article, “What is a Soulmate?” was written by a Christian single girl:
There is no such thing as “soul mate” in the sense of there being one person on earth that God has already picked for you and now you are on this journey to find them.
On the contrary, there are several possible mates that can fit into your life and help you walk out the purpose God has already ordained for your life. This idea of a soul mate violates our free will. If God will not choose who we worship, he certainly will not choose our mate for us. However that does not mean we are left alone in our choosing.
God is very much a part of the selection process because the Holy Spirit is the one who influences us to make the right choices. Yes, God already knows who we will choose because He is sovereign, but it is still our choice to make. God will send people into your life and it is your choice where you place them. Some people are better suited for friends and others for mates. God has given you intellect, free will, life experiences and the Holy Spirit to help you make the right choices.
The idea of trying to find that ONE special person God has made can be overwhelming and frustrating. Realistically, only spiritually mature people should be seeking a serious relationship. Feel free to add your comments.
