Soulmates

5 Jul

I was reading the Verily Magazine teaser and this little blurb caught my attention:

According to a University of Virginia study, those who believe in ‘soulmates’ are 150 times more likely to end up divorced.

Here is a visual representation of google’s idea on soulmates for those of you too lazy to read the entire post:

cheesy

creepy

delicious

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are probably sensing my disdain for the notion of soulmates, and on one level you’re right. At the same time I don’t want to mislead you, I do believe that there is “The One” out there for us.

and I don’t mean Elton John

His name is Jesus and his is the only love that matters: ALL other loves are OPTIONAL. All other loves are meant to lead you to His Love. If you miss out on His Love, you miss out on your purpose! As Lisa Cotter points out:

Oftentimes it is easy to want a relationship because you feel like something is missing in your life, and you think a boyfriend or girlfriend can fix that. While if you are called to marriage, there will be a special place in your heart that only your spouse can fill, your spouse will never be your Savior. A [dating] fast is the perfect time to allow Jesus to pursue your heart and take His proper place in there, so when that special person comes along you are ready to welcome him or her, without putting the pressure on that person to fulfill some of your fundamental needs of security and purpose that only Jesus can satisfy.

So go and spend some time with your soulmate, it a much better use of your time.
