I am 43 year old single, and I hope when I get married that it is not like that. That is if I ever get married the thing is I wonder if marriage is right for me. For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future Jeremiah 29:11. I wonder if maybe the reason I am still waiting is he has to prepare me personally for marriage.
I came from a broken family, my mom was an alcoholic and I did not have a very good relationship with my dad. I had few friends and I did not have very good social skills. I also picked up on some of my parent’s bad character defects. If I were to walk into a marriage when I was twenty it may not of been good for me, or the person I would be marrying. My dad has not had very successful marriages. I hope that when I get married that it will be a successful marriage that will prosper my spiritual life, financial life and my character. Then if I wait on the Lord I will have a future in my marriage that will be for my good. Hopefully I will be able to live out the verse in Jeremiah, but it may be a step at a time.
