Genesis – Soul Mate

Posted on Posted in Genesis

“So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” Genesis 2:21-24

God made man a soul mate. What is a soul mate? It’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It’s someone who makes you a better person, well, actually they don’t make you a better person…you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soulmate is someone who you carry with you forever. It’s the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens; you’ll always love them. “A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace.”  (Thomas Moore)

God created marriage, one man and one woman. In our world today we have moved so far from what God created our relationship in marriage to be. I have been married to my soul mate for 51 years. I love her more today than I did 51 years ago. It has not been an easy road, but it been a road that if I had it to do over I would do the same thing. God has blessed us and I do believe that we have become one. Marriage is commitment as much as it is love. No matter what happens, we must be committed to the marriage. We hear so much today about love and we really don’t know what love is. “Love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words. I define love as the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.” (Scott Peek)
