Who To Marry

Marry the one that you have prayed over. Second only to your salvation, this is the most important decision you can make. Bring it before the throne of the Most High God.

The one you marry will be your partner in life ministry. Marry one who's life causes you to believe that together you are more effective for the kingdom of God than you could ever be apart.

Run hard after God with everything in you, keep a laser focus on HIM, then look to see who is still running along side you. Pick from there. Don't go backwards.

Marry one who's laser focus is the Lord.

Marry one who points you to Jesus and His unchanging Word, the one who makes you long for more and more of the LORD. Your relationship with that person should bring you closer to the Savior, not further apart.

Marry one who makes you hunger for Christ, believe in Grace, and experience the love of God.

Marry one who causes you to seek the Heart of God in order to know them better, because that's where they dwell.

Marry one who will fight along side you when life gets hard...and it will get hard.

Marry the one who you know will be praying for you when you ask them too.

Marry the one who, when life kicks you in the teeth and your hurting, you know they will drop everything to fall on their face before the Lord and intercede on your behalf, even if you never ask them too. Grab that one up.

Marry one who respects you, uplifts you, and encourages you.

Marry one who cherishes you.

Marry one who is love in action.

Marry a forgiver.

Marry a fighter willing to fight a holy battle.

Marry a gentle spirit.

Marry a peacemaker.

Marry one who's life lived matches their words spoken.

Marry one who makes you laugh like no one else can.

Marry one who makes your toe nails sweat. :)

Marry your best friend.

Settle for nothing less.

Wait patiently and expectantly. God's best for you will always be worth the wait. Always.

And when you find that one and you marry them....

Choose to marry them again everyday. Choose to love them everyday. Choose to fight for them everyday.

Choose to be that one for your spouse everyday.

Lord, thank you for my one. I am forever grateful!
