Our church; has just done a marriage seminar.
Am I married? No.
When; the Lord says; it’s time.
I have read the Bible; several times.
Today; for the first time; I looked at the top of the page; of 1 Corinthians chapter 7.
The heading reads “Marriage and celibacy.”
I am not celibate; because I can’t get a man.
I choose to be celibate.
My first Husband passed away.
I am free; to be married; only in the Lord.
I’m too old to be playing games.
I will not be unequally yoked.
I don’t know everything about the Lord.
I am living; what I do know!
It’s interesting to me.
Genesis 2:18: And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
I have found my help; my comforter; my all in all; in the Lord.
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:23: Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
John 14:25: These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
John 14:26: But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 14:27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 16:7: Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
In reference to:
1 Corinthians 7:9: But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
Pastor Mike; said; “You do not get married to contain”
Barbara; says “Fall in Love with the Lord first.”
When; I fell in love with the Lord;
Proverb 23:26: My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
I learned; that this relation; with the Lord; is about the Lord.
I learned to deny myself.
I faith increased.
I am learning patience.
I have learned the correct way to give.
I have learned that; it is not about me.
I have committed, submitted and surrendered; my will to His Perfect will.
Sisters; you can’t tell me; that you are submitted to the Lord!
Yet; you have trouble submitting to the man; the Lord; has given you.
Or; did the Lord; give Him to you?
Please; don’t deceive yourself.
Per; Pastor Mike; If you are having trouble containing when you are single.
Getting married; is not going to cause you to contain.
