Finding Your Soul Mate
by Ron Mumford
How do I find my soul mate? You don't! You receive your soul mate from God. He describes Himself as, I AM LOVE. All love, all soul mates come from Him and in His timing. We must all prepare ourselves to receive the Gold Medal of all relationships—a Soul Mate. That wonderful, deep, pure, loving relationship from the greatest Matchmaker of all, ending in a marriage that will last until eternity begins.
Receiving your Soul Mate is a promise from Jesus Christ Himself. He said in Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all of these things will be added unto you." And "all" includes a soul mate or "help mate" as described in the Bible. The word "soul mate" didn't even hit Webster's Dictionary until 1822.
Now we all love the last part of this verse but...there are four things for us to do—Seek, First, the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness before we get the last part "added unto us." The book, Finding Your Soul Mate, God's Way, gives each of us a step-by-step path to our greatest romance story. Why? Because it's from God's Word. He's very specific on the subject of romance and love stories.
Your Way? Societies' Way? The Media's Way? Or, God's Way
I'm absolutely blown away on how Hollywood presents love stories. It's a quick 3-act sequence that goes something like this: the hero and heroine go to the same party and discover each other; their eyes meet and they kiss; then, in short order, the third scene is the bedroom scene. Then the three "C's" of writing begin—Conflict! Conflict! Conflict! The shame, the guilt when he or she doesn't "call you," and the anger of being used...Just another notch on the bed post. Like it or not, you have been conquered.
I met a very attractive, recently divorced professional lady named Shannon. In a brief conversation with her about soul mates, she said, "I know exactly what went wrong in my marriage. I can correct it next time. I don't want to do things God's Way, He takes too long. I'll do things my way!" Good luck, Shannon. You just reached up and slapped God in the face. Being the gentleman that He is, God did give us free will and free choice. Watch out for the players!
I'll give you a little hint into finding your soul mate. Become an Ephesians 5 man and a Proverbs 31 woman. The more we strive towards honoring Christ in our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, the more we'll radiate His love, character, and essense. The more we emulate Him, the more favor we'll find both with God and with man. So, invest fully into your walk with God and let Him guide you to your ultimate connection with another human being.
