It is Hard to Trust Again When You Have Been Blind Your Whole Life

I want to tell you about trust. I was watching a sermon this morning and it had to deal with trust between man and God. I do not want to go into everything the sermon talked about, but the main part of the sermon that got my attention was we have to trust God because He knows what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. We all have financial issues but we have to trust God to get us through it. The pastor also talked about forgiving and trusting those who have betrayed you in the past again. I know that is hard because I have the problem of trust with my mother and step-father. I thought they raised me good when I was in my teens and early 20s. Today looking back there is many mistakes they made. I know we cannot fix the past, but I hope sharing this helps you with the future.

The Big Mistake

I am going to start out with the biggest mistake in my opinion. My parents were divorced when I was 7 years old. I saw my father for maybe a year or two after the divorce and then it  stopped. My sister had anger towards him for a reason I do not know. I told my mother a few times in my teen years that I would run away to my dad’s. I never did, I did not know where he was. Back in those days we did not have smartphones with Google Maps. I felt lost as a child and neglected.

FFiII

When I hit the teen years I got into playing video games and I left public school, due to the harassment I received, and went to Christian School. I started enjoying some of the things I had. I love playing Final Fantasy III  and going skiing. I liked riding my bike down to a creek near the house. I miss childhood cause the less responsibilities, I am sure everyone feels the same. I also learned that helping others brings joy to your heart. I always went outside and mowed the lawn, raked leaves, and even shoveled snow without complaining.  My step-father liked that I would help out. Then he started to change.

When I was in high school and on the basketball team I didn’t always have time to do all the chores when he, my step-father, wanted them done. He would do them before I got home. I would go straight to doing the chores and my mom would tell me they were done. At first I was happy he was helping, but then he started saying things that were offensive as a joke. He would say, “Well you are to lazy to get them done.” or “Since you are always late I have to do it.”. Now the second was true to a point of view. Although if you have a scheduled practice at 4pm and done at 5pm and then get home by 5:30pm then you are not late, you’re late if you get home after that time like at 9pm.

After all this he started to get more ignorant and I started to like him less. I started think of my birth father. I wanted to see if he loved me. One day he took the step and called. I had just lost a job and had plenty of time. I was so happy and he came and picked me up since I didn’t have money. When I got the unemployment I started going. I was living with my mom and step-father at the time. I was wondering if there were going to be any conflicts. I kinda stopped seeing my dad when I got a job that was 12 hour shifts on nights. I also was going to college online and wanted to start a business. The only thing I thought about for those four years was work, college, and business. I worked paying bills into where I could. When college and work were on holiday shutdown I focused on business. Never had a minute in my day. It brought a lot of stress and my stubborness out. I told myself I should give up the business, but I did not until I got fired. Sometimes God tells us what to do and other times He makes it happen. The six months I was unemployed I should have called my father and got our relationship going again, but I was afraid that my mom and step-father would get angry. I did not need that at that time. It has been at least 8 years since I have seen my dad, it has not been 17 years like before I need to fix this before it happens again and it is my fault.

Having Someone to Talk to with Confidence

I believe we all have a family person or friend that we can tell anything to. What if the person you talk to tells another? It then becomes gossip. The first thing we should do is tell them we trust them and not to tell anyone else. It is a responsibility and they may not want it. I use to have that but then what I said was told to another person.

I know it is not easy to hear a person’s problems but we need to get our burdens off our chest to reduce stress. If not then there could be heart attacks, anger, criminal acts, or betrayal. I know when people identify common problems with me it makes me feel better because I am not the only one like this. I have had people talk to me about hard times in life. I listen and identify with them. Sometimes I can even give them some good advice or a suggestion how to deal with it from experience. We need not to be selfish we need to be selfless.

Doing Things You Don’t Like Because You Love Your Family and Friends

 

We all like some similar things and some entirely different things especially in mixed families. My step-father like bowling and so did I so sometimes we would go bowling together. One thing I really like was playing video games. My step-dad was way before the era of video games he is from the time TV first came out. I wanted him to play Mario Brothers with me when I first got it and he said he couldn’t do it. I wanted to teach him but he wouldn’t even try. It hurt that he wouldn’t be able to share an interest with me. When I was playing basketball I wanted him to come out and help me make shots. All I wanted was for him is to get rebounds at the net and to watch me and give me tips because he played in his childhood, never happened. I also liked watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when I got home from school. He got home about 15 minutes after the show started and took the remote. I started hiding the remote and not doing the chores so he would take it out. All I needed was 15 more minutes and he didn’t want to give me that so I had to be disobedient. Today we can record anything at anytime and watch it in another room and watch another channel as it is recording. Even though with technology being so much more advanced than 20 years ago I would still let my child watch a show as long as they were doing good in school, not being disobedient, and follow the schedule I set. I would always compromise if there was a show, a sports event, or maybe a friend calling from overseas. If you do something the same way all the time then you think you are always right. Sometimes we need to adjust what we do to make it better or to acknowledge we need a little change to beat repetition.

I didn’t always like taking care of the fire or bringing in wood during the winter. I got tired of it by early Spring but we still need to build one in the mourning and sometimes in the evening. I would take care of it not because it was my responsibility, but because I loved my parents. When I felt rejected from the family is when I stopped doing things like taking care of the fire and bring in wood. One thing I wanted to do for my step-father was get a cheap heat source installed and either help pay for it or pay it in full. Neither one would even look at the sources of heat that would be available to them. I eventually gave up. They want to build fires until they die then they can do it themselves is what I started to feel. I learned we just need to accept what others want. I guess the fire is good for him cause it does give him exercise. I just hope if they ever needed anything like new source of heat they would ask me.

We All Need Acceptance

 

It doesn’t matter who you are or what family you are in we all need acceptance in our life. The hard part is accepting parts of our life we do not want to happen, like the lost of a loved one.  I believe accepting the bad times like accepting the good times is the hardest challenge in life.

Where Do We Go After Death According To The Bible

Do you know what a Christian is? Do you know what Salvation means to your soul? I have been a Christian since I was 12 years old. I went to a Christian School and my teacher Saved my Soul. Since then I have felt like there was a meaning, a purpose for me. Unfortunately about 15 years ago I went down the wrong path in my life. God has been calling me for the last 10 years or more to come back to Him. Yesterday I decided to listen for once and went to church today. I have not felt this much at peace for a long time. If you have had hard times in life, troubles, lost loved ones, struggle at work, cannot hardly pay the bills or feed the family and you need peace then stay with me. I have had such hard times the last 3 years suicide has crossed my mind. Today it will not come back because I am back with God the Almighty.

Life After Death

I was 12 years old when I learned that Heaven was where we went to be with God, the Angels, and our family. I have been to two different Christian Schools the first one is where I was saved within the first few months. My church was preaching about getting Saved, but they did not explain why I should get saved. My principal at the time was preaching our weekly sermon and he explained it a lot better. It is because of him I went to my teacher and she lead me to Salvation in Jesus Christ.

  So, What is Salvation in Christ?

maxresdefault1

Salvation is our key into Heaven after death. If we are not Saved we will be cast into Hell with Satan in the End Days. Salvation is not a piece of cake, but it does not take you away from everything in your life. Salvation makes your life better, more peaceful, and the End Times in your favor.

When a person gets Saved in Christ they are devoting themselves to Him. This does not mean to quit your job, sell your house, and leave everything you own to charity. What it means is you heart has been touched by God and you want to be a better human being. You know what is right and wrong and now you want to stay focused on what is right. You have intentions on making changes in your life like: holding your tongue on bad language, being

Ephesians 4:32

 

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

King James Version (KJV)

kind to others, sharing, control you anger, and go to church. It may seem complicated to do all this, but you do not have to do it all at once, God has patience. You need to just set a goal to become a better person and eventually it will become easy. God will eventually give you challenges. An example would be like running into a guy in an alley and he offers you a hit on his “joint”. Now let’s say you have done marijuana in the past before you became a Christian. What would you do? It does not have to be marijuana. It could be alcohol, drugs, smoking, prostitution, gambling, and more. So what would you do? Would you follow the sinner or would you just say “No.”? Saying “No” should not be that hard, but with Jesus with you He makes it a lot easier.

Salvation is like having a team. You are the leader. You chose what path you are going to walk everyday. Jesus is your solder. He defends you when you get in trouble. He is als your counselor, adviser, friend, and the one you go to when you are heartbroken.  He is everything in one and He is always by your side.

Where do I go after death

 

Life after death is complicated. There are many scriptures that talks about the afterlife and sometimes can be conceived as an instant moment or a waiting game. This is something I have researched since I was saved. I still do not know for sure. What I do believe is that when we die we will conceive it as instantaneously as being either in Heaven with God the Father or in Hell.  Now that does not mean it will happen instantaneously. It will be like when we go to bed. We fall asleep, we go into REM sleep for 6 to 8 hours, and then we wake up. It seems to us that we just layed down a moment ago but it is hours later.

John 3:16

 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

King James Version (KJV)

1 Corinthians 15:51-54

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Living Now

God wants you to enjoy your life. He wants you to be happy, have fun, and not need anything. As long as you live a good life and follow him He will provide you with what you need. Now what you want is another story. Although I will get to that another day. I will say sometimes I have prayed a lot for somethings and I have never received an answer. In reality I did. He responded by not giving me what I wanted because it was not sufficient for me. He knows all, sees all, and hears all things. Just follow Him and he will direct your path.

Proverbs 3:6

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

King James Version (KJV)

We All Need To Feel Wanted Since Creation

Jesus Never Fails

The Purpose God Has In Your Life

We All Need To Feel Wanted Since Creation

It is in our human nature to have the desire to be wanted and needed. When we have these feelings and they are fulfilled we are happy; when we do not have them fulfilled we become sad. Why do we have this nature? Well it goes back to the day of Creation by the God Almighty.

In The Beginning…

Some people believe in evolution and others, like myself, believe in Creation. I am not going to take evolution into consideration today because everything has happened for a reason. God was lonely a long time ago. Some believe millions of years ago and others thousands of years ago, but He decided to create the Universe. He created the Earth, the water, the animals, and man in six days. He even could tell that Adam, man, was lonely and created woman, Eve. God has feelings and that is why we do as well.

Genesis 1- 2:7

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

This is the history[a] of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

He gave us all we needed when He created Adam and Eve, what has gone wrong.

A Story In The Holy Bible That Did Not Happen On Earth

When the Earth was created Heaven and Earth were perfect, but with time change happens. Lucifer, “mourning star”, sinned in Heaven and was cast down to Earth. Now this implies that Creation had already happened. So it could have happened on day eight or hundreds, even thousands of years later. We just do not know. What we do know is why Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and what he did on Earth to cause sin.

Lucifer was cast down from Heaven to Earth because he was full of pride because of his beauty, wisdom, and perfection. He was and no longer is known as Lucifer he is now Satan, “adversary”.

Isaiah 14: 12-17

How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

Ezekiel 28: 11-19

 11 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God:

“You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.

14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.

16 “By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.

17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.

18 “You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.”’”

Ezekiel has a message. The Son of man is Satan. God sends Ezekiel a message telling him that Satan was perfect one day, then he changed. God found violence in Lucifer and cast him down from Heaven. He became evil.

It is like yin and yang. Where there is good there is evil. I have pondered this since I became a Christian when I was 12 years old. Can good exist without evil and can evil exist without good? It took me over a decade to figure this out and accept it. In Chemistry there is up to eight electrons on an element. An electron like Lithium (Li) is unstable and can give up an electron to combine with another element. An element like Argon (Ar) is stable and will not combine with another element. Now elements like Carbon (C) can go either way because they only have 4 electrons. Now you may wonder where I am going. God is like Argon. He is full of good electrons. Lucifer was like Carbon he had a choice, had strong good elements around him, but went the wrong way. We are like Lithium from our first day we are born. The one electron we have is Faith. We need to attract some electrons like us to build stronger and as we get stronger we will become stronger than Satan. The reason being we may build strong enough to have seven electrons and still feel weak, but God can give on of His electrons to get us through the hard times.

Are We All Wanted?

If you ever think you are not wanted then think of God, pray to God, read your Bible. He wants all of us. He does not want anyone not to go to Heaven in the end. If you think He does not want you that is the devil deceiving you. There are many days I feel alone, unwanted, then I think of God and I feel like I am needed again. Everything that God does gives me peace. It does not matter rather it is rain or shine, snow, fire, flowers, birds, or spiders it all touches my soul. I have even accepted death. When I know a person and I know they are saved and going to see God I am sad and happy. I am sad they are no longer with me, but I am happy they are in a perfect place, no longer suffering on Earth. Do you believe in the afterlife? Do you believe in Heaven and Hell? It is true rather you believe it or not. Have you been saved in Christ? If you have not do you wish to give yourself onto Him? if the answer is “Yes” please say this prayer:

               “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I                        am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please                      forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for                    my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to                            become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please                          send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In                          Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

Marriage Is About Love: Till Death Do Us Part…

I have believed my entire life that once a couple is married they should stay together till death. I use to believe it because the majority of people did not get a divorce, but my viewpoint has changed. I now believe it because that is what God wants for us. He has “The One” a soulmate out there for everyone. Sometimes there is hard times even with your soulmate, but that is a challenge God intends for you in life and your relationship to make you stronger.

Divorce Does Not Solve Problems It Creates More Problems

I do not remember much from when I was a child, but one thing I do remember is the day my mother came to my room and said, “We are leaving now.”. I do not remember if I knew what she was talking about or if I was scared. I believe I knew because I think I would have freaked a little. She left my father with my sister and I and went to where she now lives, at my step-dad’s.

n-divorced-child-628x314

I remember seeing my father for a few years. I also remember her and my dad complaining and fighting. When I wanted to go see my dad she would complain about calling him and for some reason my sister did not want to go. Soon enough I gave up and did not see my father for another 20 years when he picked up the phone and called me. I was so happy. I have a niece, a couple nephews, and a step-mother that isn’t too bad. Although it would be much better if I had known him when I was a child, had challenges, started dating, and guy questions. I would of felt more secure if he had been there for me. Life is complicated ain’t it!

Problems From The Past I Wish My Dad Was There For

When I was a child there was many things I wanted to do. We all have that when we are supporting-your-children-after-divorce-ages-6-through-8-16-728young. We think that we can do anything and everything in the world, but never get it all done. I wish I had it more simple. I never had a father to play catch with, to play basketball with, to play video games with, to learn how to hunt with, or just to chat with. My step-dad has been a good father don’t get me wrong. He has always provided what we needed. I learned when I grew up he spent thousands of dollars to get me a Chevy Blazer when I was in college. He has also taught me a lot about outdoor work like sawing, building, and gardening. What he did not give me was valuable personal time with a share of interest. It does not matter if it was TV shows, video games, playing cards, or board games he had no interest in any and it made me feel different and outcasted from the family.  I tried my entire high school life to earn to be part of the family and never did.

Ephesians 6:4  4And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Thought My Sibling Was The Competition

I was the younger of two growing up. I always felt like I was competing for attention and acceptance. I thought I had my sister to blame for that, but now I believe I was wrong. I still do not know if it was me or someone else in the family, but not feeling equal hurts.

900-159290958-sibling-quote-by-clara-ortega
My sister was always there for me. Sisters can be a pain, but also a superhero. 🙂

This has changed me for the better although. I use to believe that some people were better than others, I hoped I was one of the better. Then from the competition of equality at home it opened my eyes that everyone should be equal. I learned in church that God sees us all the same. The man is the head of the house, the woman is only submits to her husband, and children obey their parents. I lived that from the day I learned it in church till the day I die. There is no where in the Bible does it say that younger kids should listen to the older kids all the time. If parents put a child in charge then, no matter what the age, the other children should listen or they will be disobeying their parents.

 Ephesians 5:22-25 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Ephesians 6:1-4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Ephesians 5:1 – 33 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.

Now Rather Than The Past

8f8d05f9468487998cfe98fbe654b18aI believe marriage is a commitment to eternal love. Today there are so many divorces and children outside of marriage it really hurts my soul. I have a fear that one day when I get married my wife will cheat on me and end in divorce. According to Fox News, 17 percent of divorces are due to infidelity. Also about 7/10 men cheat on their wives and their wives do not know about it. This is not a commitment of eternal love. Sexual intercourse is the way God gave us to become one, to feel joined.

 

Genesis 2:18, 21-25  And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.     21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Adam’s Woman, Eve, was created from his flesh. We are all descendants from Adam and Eve. The Great Flood killed everyone and everything on Earth except for Noah and his family. He is a descendant of Adam and Eve as well, so we are as well.

We need to go back to the old times where love is the most important in life only surpassed by God the Almighty. I use to believe I would find my true love one day, but now I believe this World is so corrupt that only God can find me my soulmate. I hope he does, because once I say my vows I will never abandon my spouse no matter what!
