Recently I had to choose my dress for Godlywood Night and selected a pretty one. I was so sure of my choice, you know that feminine instinct – this is the one, I told myself.
However, when the time for the first fitting came, I realised that I needed to make some changes because it did not quite suit me after all.
It seems a trivial case, and it is, but how many times do we make important choices based on this same “feminine instinct” believing we are right? Later on we find out that it wasn’t quite the right fit for us.
I can name a few important choices where we should not take risks : a career, a business move, an investment, etc, but there is one in particular that we should not allow instinct, first impressions or excitement to influence us and that is a partner for life.
If you enrol for a course and you don’t like it, you just quit; if you get a new job and it is not what you really want, you look for another one; if you invest some money and receive no profits, you work and recover the money.
But when you start a relationship and engage in marriage with the wrong person, you affect all other aspects of your life and often put your relationship with God at risk.
Remember, you made the choice but then you think “why did God allow it to happen?”
How can you avoid this trap? Do not trust yourself solely in this choice. Make a partnership with the Spirit of Love who will guide you in the process.
Once you have the Spirit of Love within you, your eyes will identify the one who is just right for you. Probably you have seen him or her many times but did not notice the person.
This was because your physical eyes were looking for this partner or maybe your emotional side imagined the kind of man or woman you thought would be right for you, according to the desires of your heart.
If you don’t have anyone in mind, or if you have but you are not sure of your choice, invite the Spirit of Love to be your coach in this and you won’t go wrong.
