What is a soulmate?

Soulmates

Simply stated, “The love of your life; your perfect match.”

Although everyone has one, some people may never find their soulmate because they are not looking in the right places.

According to modern definition, a “soulmate” is a person who is your destiny partner for life. Someone you will love “forever” because you have instant similarity, love, romance, peace, comfort, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, compatibility and trust.

Plato’s definition

Beware of the usage of the “soulmate” term as defined by Plato, the Greek philosopher, born in 428 BC. It is utter foolishness – a Greek myth portraying humans as originally having four arms, four legs, and a single head with two faces, possessing both male and female genitalia. Supposedly, they were eventually split in two by the Greek god, Zeus, and they forever wandered the earth looking for “their other half.”

The Biblical definition

The biblical concept of soulmates is what we believe is the accurate definition. It comes from the Old Testament concept of finding your Bashert, a Yiddish word meaning “destiny.”

Jewish scholars teach that all marriages are made in heaven. In other words, marriages for humans are created by God almighty and we must pray and wait until we find the perfect partner He has for us. Jewish singles will say that they are looking for their Bashert, meaning, they are looking for that person who will complement them perfectly and whom they themselves will complement perfectly. Since it is considered to have been foreordained by God whom one will marry, one’s spouse is considered to be one’s Bashert. Marriages that do not work out well is the result of not waiting for your Bashert.

The Soulmate is the strongest bond with another person that a man or woman can achieve.

When God first created Adam and Eve, it was two souls united by God. He created them to become “one flesh”, as well as every other couple thereafter.

“The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’ Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.’ That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become ONE FLESH.” – Genesis 2:18-24

God from the very beginning ordained marriage and the family unit as the first and foremost institution on earth. God’s plan for marriage consists of one male and one female who become united as one – physically and spiritually (one flesh). It is a lifelong bond of soulmates who love, compliment and uplift each other.

How do you know you’ve found your soulmate?

You will feel drawn to each other physically and spiritually, and experience an overall sense of completeness – like you were meant to unite. Here are some other clues that you’ve found your soulmate:

1. You connect with them on the deepest level and they allow you to grow as a person within the relationship.

2. You communicate without speaking.

3. You’ve been totally comfortable around each other since you’ve first met.

4. The relationship brings both partners a sense of inner calm.

5. You and your partner have separate identities, but you face the world as one.

6. When you finally meet you find yourself ready for love and your love blooms instantly.

How often does that happen?

Not too often, I’m afraid. Most people today are in and out of relationships that never last because they easily settle for “second best.” They make mistake-after-mistake by getting involved with people who are not God’s best for them. Instead, they should wait patiently in faith that God will provide their perfect soulmate.

“I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I put my hope.” – Psalm 130:5

The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him in faith. Those who wait patiently on God to provide the perfect soulmate will not be dissapointed.

So continue praying in faith, keep an open mind and an open heart and expect your soulmate to come knocking. When he or she does, be ready to answer the door.

Husbands love your wives

Husbands love your wives

In marriage, it is important to make your partner feel special and loved daily. Don’t let your work or your busy life interfere with keeping your wife emotionally and physically satisfied, and letting her know how important she is to you.

1. Love them despite their faults.

Be patient and understanding of your wives. It is true, they can be irritating at times, but that’s the best time to show them you are understanding of their moodiness which is characteristic of a woman, and will continue to love them them unconditionally. Always remember that you too have faults, and you can sometimes be difficult to get along with as well.

2. Compliment them daily.

Women need to be complimented regularly. They can be very insecure at times and need to be reasurred that you still think they are the most attractive and sexy, and highly loved and desired by you. Tell them how beautiful they are every day. Be affectionate. Make love to them regularly and leave them with a smile on their face.

3. Give them the attention they need from you.

Touch and affection is a language that all women crave from their husbands. In the marriage relationship, it’s imperative that you make time to talk with your wife and listen to her concerns. Your wife also needs to be romanced regularly. Date nights, flowers, and love notes should never go out of style – no matter how long you’ve been married.

4. Make them feel secure and protected.

Don’t ever bring up the “D” word (divorce). Regularly reassure them you are a partner for life and there is no other woman that can ever take her place. Make an actual “Goal Board” of your future plans illustrating your shared dreams for the future. Discuss financial goals, future travel plans, your bucket list; it’s an impressive demonstration of commitment to a secure and happy future together.

Be the husband, dad and leader God created you to be!

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” – Ephesians 5:25

“Perhaps the monotony of everyday has made us lose the charm that we two used to have, but I want you to know that you are the lady of my dreams and I don’t know what I would do without you by my side. I really love you so much.” – Anonymous
