Finding the one (1): Finding purpose

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about relationships and finding the “one” you want to spend the rest of your life with. I guess I’ve been thinking about it recently because I had been so busy living life that I hadn’t thought about it for so long. I remember I asked a friend one time what their purpose in life was, and they said “to get married.” Really! To get married? sounds like a wasted life to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a noble thing to desire a spouse, but you and your spouse are supposed to come together to accomplish goals, a common purpose. If you don’t have a purpose, then what are you and your spouse going to do? Just sleep together? Well I hear that gets old after a while. Have kids? Well even they grow up and leave…so if you don’t know your purpose, what are you supposed to do with your spouse?

Why not do something this week that you have not done before. Sit down in a quiet place and ask God about your purpose. He wants to tell you. And you know what not only will you have a better relationship when you meet the “one,” but you will have a better more effective life, even if you decide not to be with the “one.”
