Love is Courtship…Why I started Love is Courtship?
Posted January 23, 2012on:
Why did I start Love is Courtship? Honestly, because I have been heartbroken and I see so many heartbroken people in society, young people are searching for love the wrong way and people are not taught how to treat each other even in marriage. I believe that true God centred courtship is 100% guaranteed to last and that’s why I started Love is Courtship.
The divorce rate is rapidly growing and the main reason I believe it is so is because people are not taught to treat the opposite sex as another person’s wife or husband until they meet the person God has pre-destined for them. Many are not taught to fight for purity and self-control. Most young people are into dating, others believe in arranged marriages and many don’t even want to get married due to past relationships and fear but keep all the benefits of marriage. I believe you can marry the wrong person. Yes, anyone can, even a christian can marry the wrong person. If you marry the wrong person God can restore and can still make your marriage successful…but do you want to marry the wrong person? No, no-one does, so learn what real courtship is all about.
Courtship is not just treating each other nice for awhile, having sex after marriage and then that’s it…no it is so much more. Courtship is a never ending cycle that continues through your life and onto your children and their children…it is generational. Courtship starts with your heart and asking God who am I meant to be with for the rest of your life? Courtship is about letting go of control and trusting God that He will help any man find and pursue the right woman, and women will wait until the man finds them.
That sounds like a fairytale…well why are there so many fairytales around and why are stories of the Prince rescuing a Princess so popular? Why do we love super hero’s and villian stories? Because God designed it that way and He is writing your story if you will trust Him and not take control yourself….listen to your heart for God whispers your name.
