Relationships are challenging. It’s never easy finding the “right one”, usually because there is no such thing. Most of us were brought up thinking, “If I can just find the right person everything will be all right”. It’s not true, no one can fix you, you have to work on yourself. The best time to work on your marriage is before you have one. Start now.
Have you ever wondered why you’re attracting bums? You attract what you allow. You have to get intentional about BECOMING the person you would want to marry. Eventually you’re going to settle down. Make sure you are attracting what you want to live with for a long time.
Many of us were taught to avoid bad relationships, don’t have sex, don’t date the idiot, don’t wear this, don’t do that, don’t develop relationships with guys unless he can quote Matthew, Mark, Luke and John while juggling Bibles and simultaneously taking communion. This resist and restrain concept only works if you add one key element, the one key element most of us weren’t taught.
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision the people perish (cast off restraint) blessed is he who keeps the law.” Restraint without revelation always leads to rebellion. Vision must come before conviction. When you get a clear vision of the kind of life that you want it will cause you to voluntarily exercise restraint.
