Welcome to purposeful living today. 

Life is meaningful when it is lived in alignment with God's plan and purpose. 

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him" Psalms  18:30.

As humans, we tend to depend solely on our power of choice to make decisions in life. Ideas God didn't give you are known as "good ideas" but not God's idea from God's perspective.  

Do you think you know what is best for you, more than God your creator?
Thinking that we know what is best for us has made us edit God out of the picture of our lives. 

One area of our lives we have separated God from is in our premarital relationship. When it comes to relationship we believe so much in our power of choice that we do not surrender our heart to His will. 

Who told you that God who is the creator of Romance is not Romantic?

 We tend to forget that God actually instituted relationships, instead of seeking God's direction we are hell-bent to doing things our own way,  we are so engrossed with attraction, beauty,  physique, wealth, power, fame, etc,. 

 These things are needful but not profitable in God's agenda for your relationship; what is profitable is that your relationship is a divine arrangement to fulfill God's assignment in your lives.

When you are given an assignment in school as a chemistry student,  you will not go and meet an accounting student to work with you in doing the assignment.

In the same way, marriage is not just an adventure-seeking venture but an assignment to be fulfilled by the couple who are working in fulfillment of God's purpose for their lives.

 If you marry someone that does not fit into God's plan and purpose for your life you will struggle in your marriage.

 The wrong marital decisions of our parents are now a bone in their neck, they are married but living unfulfilled with no purpose just to give birth to children and that's all.

It's a tragedy to marry when you have not discovered God's purpose for your life - this determines your destination in life. You may love him/her but if you are heading to different directions you will not have a healthy marriage.

You will experience such beauty and romance when God is at the center of your love life. He is the author of Romance, not the devil.

To have a God-glorifying marriage you must work with God's design for your life and this is by allowing Him to lead you not your desires or emotions leading you.  Give up your pen of trying to write your love story.

I know you have been writing by yourself for a long time and have edited it over and over again.

 You may have tried to please people because you want a relationship, you lowered your standards and crossed physical intimacy boundaries.

You have even begun living in fornication because you are afraid of losing him, only this year you being in several relationships that ended in heartbreak.

  Friend,  it is time to allow your Creator to write your love story,  it will not end up in heartbreak, pain or regret.

  If you seek a love story that will be a blessing to lives, then you must allow him to do the writing,  your part is to do the acting according to the script He has given you.

Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth, it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them. ( Isaiah 34:16).

I share with you a true-life story of how God can write your love story.

"My name is Shalom Peaceful,  Like many other women I was once a victim of heartbreak and I began to doubt if true love really exists, I cried and started doubting every man but just the time I stopped putting matters into my own hands God's will prevailed.

 I said to myself how can a woman find true love when she is not patient enough to WAIT for a man who is truly born again. I played with fire, gambled my heart because I was getting involved with guys who were not seriously rooted in Christ. My friends had boyfriends and like every woman, I just needed someone to make me feel loved which was a perfect recipe for heartbreak.

As I matured in the Lord I realized that I don't want a man who will only bring me to fancy restaurants and spend tons of money on me. I wanted someone who will help me to grow spiritually and will challenge me in my walk with God and I am so proud and thankful to have a man Tinashe Samuel.

Who is so wise and unafraid to stand up for all his beliefs, knowing that the kingdom of the Lord will have the ultimate power.  When he speaks I am reminded of Solomon's Wisdom, his Ability to lead remind me of Moses, his attention to detail remind me of Noah, his faith remind me of Abraham, his confidence in God's word remind me of Daniel, his integrity remind me of Joseph, his Ability to love selflessly and unconditionally remind me of Christ.

To all the single ladies, I advise you to Seek a godly man, a man who places Christ at the center of his life. If he doesn't love God's word, talk about God's word, quote God's Word - RUN!!! He is not the Godly man you need. However, if you meet a man that loves God's word you will know. He's one worth watching and waiting for... As you wait upon the Lord to bring a Godly man to find you, Get close to God first, before getting close to anyone else. God without you is still God, but any person without God is nothing.

The Lord has been faithful to me and all my scars serve as a testimony that God can do it for you. I pray for you all single ladies and women going through love problems, the God who remembered me will remember you also."

Shalom Peaceful wrote this story while in courtship with Tinashe Samuel. They married this year after 5 years of courtship. God can write your love story like theirs.

"Before we can truly grasp the perfection of His ways, we must first exchange our desires for His desires."

Dear, God is still in the business of leading,  guiding and directing people to you. He will lead you to the person that will partner with you in fulfilling purpose in His own time. God can't lead you if you don't have a relationship with Him.  This is by receiving the life of  Jesus Christ to be your Lord and personal Savior.  You can do that right now,  he loves you and wants the best relationship for you.

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you to forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today that I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible-believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
