Where is my Soulmate?

By  |  0 Comments

Many women go to college with their minds made up on getting a husband. For some, the highly sought after MRS degree outranks the others. Finding a mate actually occupies a line on their to-do list. That doesn’t mean they send out a search party or anything but they are conscious of that desire. For instance, if you ask them what type of man they want, they could produce a list of traits they find attractive. Not a bad idea. Others bop along in life without a clear vision of the future. That was me.

As time passes, some of the boppers get married and some of the list makers don’t. In the African American community more women don’t than do. Soulmate produced by Andrea Wiley (see yesterday’s post) discusses this phenomenon. In college, life seems like a set of endless possibilities. The video is almost like looking into the future for some women who may find themselves wrestling with the discontentment of singleness. This is a hard reality, but true.

The secret of contentment is probably as highly sought after as the MRS degree. Let me make a book suggestion. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren is based on the spiritual maturity process of a genuine Christian. Understanding why God created you can brighten up the loneliest days.

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16

The most basic question everyone faces in life is Why am I here? What is my purpose? Self-help books suggest that people should look within, at their own desires and dreams, but Rick Warren says the starting place must be with God and his eternal purposes for each life. Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth. Excerpt from www.purposedrivenlife.com
