“I can’t wait to get married” was Caro’s last statement after narrating her ordeals to me. Caroline, my childhood friend who was about 27 years old bitterly complained life had not been smiling at her but had been stoning her with all kinds of challenges. She added that if she was not urgently rescued by marriage, she may be swallowed up by the stones of challenges that life kept throwing at her.
Are you also in Caro’s shoe? Babe, let me tell you the truth, “Running into marriage because you want to escape your challenges is like running from frying pan to fire.” What you think is your financial, spiritual or social problems now may still remain your companion even after marriage if you are not applying the right formula. The way out of your problems is not rushing into marriage but running to God. Stop thinking marriage will end all the troubles in the world. Only God can. He says in His Word, “…My peace I give to you, not as the world giveth…(John 14:27)”
The Bible also says, “Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labour. (Eclessiastes 4:9)” But you attract this blessing only when you acknowledge God in your life and family. You should know that running away from personal or family problems should never force you into marriage. Know the Lord thy God who says, come unto me all ye that labour and are heavily laden and I will give you rest.(Mattew 11:28)
Get married to the REAL GROOM (JESUS) before the other groom. Having confessed your love to Jesus and surrendering the whole of yourself to Him, He will give you a perfect groom, peace of mind in your marriage and everlasting joy even all areas of life.
