Learning To Toss out the Romanic Myths and Seek The Truth

Toss out the Romanic Myths and Seek The Truth

Your soulmate is the person who mends your broken heart by simply giving you theirs ~ author unknown.

I saw this quote on a FB friend’s page and I thought it would be interesting to write a post about it. While the quote and pic are good intentioned and seemingly romantic, I think the message is actually dangerous. No one can heal us but God. It helps to have positive loving people around us, but they can’t heal us.

3 Reasons Why God is the Answer to Your Pain

1. 1 John 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.

There isn’t a love greater than the love that Christ has for us. He died for our sins and rose on the third day, so that we can be healed and set free. We love Christ because He first loved us. Often times we get caught up in what looks like romance and happiness BUT if it doesn’t please Christ, it isn’t his will for us. God heals, he saves, he lives to make us whole again. No one can love us unconditionally like Christ.

2. Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

The only one who can heal our bodies, emotions and make our life better is God. We have to be careful not to try to make our significant others our savior. No man or woman can heal our hearts or take away our pain. Have you ever seen a woman date a good man (he’s faithful, a gentleman, honest, open and drama free) and she still treats him like he’s one of the dogs that she’s dated in the past. That’s because no matter how much that man loved on her, he couldn’t take away the pain of her past. God loves us so much, that no matter what wrong we’ve done or that’s been done to us, He is waiting, ready and willing to love on us, restore us and make us whole again. Restoration comes when we submit to Gods will and focus on pleasing him, NOT man.

3. Matthew 9:22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

It’s important for us to have faith in God, knowing that He alone is the answer to all of our problems. When we put our faith in people, at some point we find ourselves frustrated and disappointed because man fails us but God never fails. When we submit to the Lord, putting all of our issues on the altar, He is always faithful to meet us right where we’re at and start the process of making us new again. Some healing is instant and others healing is a process. As long as we keep our eyes on the cross, we know that our break through is on the way.

    While I agree with what your saying 100%. Nothing can love you as fully and as completely as God does. However I believe your straying from the quote itself. Just because you have a souls mate doesn’t mean it has a to conflict with your relationship to God, in fact it should enhance it. To further support your point, When you think about it, God created your soul mate for you he created a replica of you- the perfect companion for you. That’s how much he loves you. Christian beliefs don’t have to be limited to scripture a.i it’s not impossible for God to give both you and your soul mate perfect love. In fact my soul mate has reminded that love is real an that the purest love comes from him and her and I receive just a small glimpse of Gods entire love from each other. We receive it I it’s most truth and pure form from each other however it’s still Gods love we share

    God doesn’t exist you moron! Think about it! You are 1 of over 7.5 billion people on a planet which is one of many around a star. Do you know how many stars there are in this Milky Way galaxy alone? If you don’t, google it. Do you know how many more galaxies there are in this universe? If you don’t, google it! It is said that there are an infinite number of universes inside a “Multiverse” which itself is inside an “Omniverse”. Beyond that we cannot fattom! Let’s just stop there! If an Entity (God) really did exist and had the power and resources to create this “Omniverse”, how much higher on the evolutionary scale is that Entity than we are? It would be like comparing how much more advance you are to a bacteria on an ant times infinity! Do you really think that entity would give a shit about some particular human being namely you? Do you think that Entity will answer your prayers and loves you and protect you? Do you care about some ant? If the result is that no divine intervention is going to happen when you’re dying or desperately needing help then what good is a God? It’s the same as if God didn’t exist which it really doesn’t! Fact not friction!
