What's the Purpose?
You know what? When I finally accepted that my marriage was ending and heading for divorce I started thinking about the reality of being single again. After 10 years of distance from the dating scene I wasn’t looking forward to diving back in. I told myself that I didn’t want to date and thought it would be nice if I could just be introduced to the man purposed for me. It sounded good, but when my loneliness kicked in I started to entertain the idea of just going out on a date to enjoy male companionship. However, the other day while in the shower, God said to me “If it doesn’t serve a purpose, you don’t need to do it. If you do it anyway, then you’re just trying to fill a need.” He was right. If I was to go out on a date with a guy right now, it would only be to fill a need and would be counterproductive to my healing process. Basically it would be pointless. This process is difficult but I HAVE to learn how to be content with me before moving forward with any man.
After God spoke those words to me, I felt the need to watch a message I heard about on social media called “5 Keys To Identifying Your SoulMate” by pastor Toure Roberts. Watching that message brought tears to my eyes because it confirmed what I felt God was speaking to me. When you get a chance, I encourage you to watch this video at http://youtu.be/sJutjZ5mm9E and post a comment under this blog sharing what it spoke to you. Some may say the points in the message are unrealistic or old-fashioned but I believe it’s the path God desires for me to travel. How about you?
