I may be old-school but I find something extremely attractive about a man who respects my voice, space, and giftings/calling, and who isn’t intimidated to lead me in Christ.
Obviously, I am a capable leader on my own. I probably could be single my whole life. It feels easier and safer, for sure. But, does God’s will revolve around our security or His purpose? Well, if I choose to partner with such a man, he will will be a rare gift from God. I know it.
Marriage is a gift. Let’s not be like the world and throw it away, but remember it’s a picture of Jesus’ relationship with the church. Yes, I am able to lead myself. The greater stretch for me will be entrusting my heart and life to a man, a God-given man, for the purpose of God’s glory in and through our union. We shall see if God has this Boaz somewhere out there!!!
Be open to marriage. The world is turning away from it. Marriage may be hard, but it’s God’s first institution. God called it very good!!!
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
