I'm very excited to share today's blog with you! I post alot of content surrounding Jesus, relationships and lifestyle on my Youtube Channel, as well as here on my blog. I will work on posting more regularly here on my website, so stay tuned. In case you didn't know, I'm all about godly relationships that lead to godly marriages that bring God glory which means, you will see alot of my content with that focus in mind.
Today, I am sharing with you my biggest tip to preparing for a godly relationship that leads to a godly marriage. It's only one (loaded) tip! Can you believe that?! My expertise comes from many years of reading about & researching relationships, taking courses, attending webinars, observing successful relationships and marriages, as well as unsuccessful ones, and of course, cultivating my own godly relationship that led to a beautiful godly marriage. You can find more of my story here and on my Youtube Channel.
To me, the best way to prepare for a godly relationship that leads to a godly marriage is to INVEST IN YOURSELF, but hear me out! This is a very loaded statement. I don't mean to invest in yourself in a selfish, prideful or narcissistic way. Invest in yourself means to invest first in your spiritual self. Now, because I am a Christian/Believer, my tips and suggestions are always founded on biblical principals. Investing in yourself spiritually means spending time reading your bible, establishing a genuine relationship with the Lord, memorizing scripture, guarding your heart, and feeding your spirit the right things- things that line up with God's word. You want to work toward living in a way that pleases God, and becoming completely satisfied in Christ.
Now, this is key: LIVE ACCORDING TO THE WORD. The Bible has so much wisdom, instruction, and guidance, so it is important that we take heed to it. Galatians 5 teaches us about the fruit of the spirit that we need to bear, 1 Peter tells us to have a quiet, gentle spirit. the Bible also instructs us not to engage in corrupt speech, and to be careful with our words because death & life are in the power of the tongue. It speaks on avoiding all appearances of evil, and fleeing fornication. When we live based on the Word of God, we reap great results. Many people neglect this very important step and allow selfishness, flesh, worldliness, sin, lack of peace, lack of joy, etc. to set in and it causes issues. Bearing good fruit is the key to maintaining a successful godly relationship, and without it, there comes the strong likelihood of unnecessary challenges, tough situations, and not so great results. The Bible gives us specific instructions and each instruction and nugget of wisdom is for a reason and has a purpose. We must become willing to allow the Lord to work in us and make adjustments in our hearts, so that we may be found pleasing to Him, and gain the ability to adequately serve our significant other/spouse, as unto the Lord.
Since we talked about investing in yourself from a spiritual perspective, let's talk about your investment in the natural. From a natural perspective, it's important that you take care of your temple (body) because the Holy Spirit resides there. Take care of your body, eat healthy, exercise, fix yourself up in a way that makes you feel confident while still dressing modestly rather than provocatively. Also, for women, it is important to remember that "He who finds a wife, finds a good thing...", so Sis, slow down, give it to God, and prepare by faith, by focusing on investing in yourself. God will lead the right man to you in His prefect timing, if that is His will for your life. Invest in yourself emotionally by allowing yourself time to heal from past heartbreaks, hurt or bitterness from past relationships. Work toward becoming spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically healthy. These factors contribute to healthy, godly relationships.
