DATING 2 MARRIAGE
DITCH YOUR FEAR OF MARRIAGE. INSTEAD, PREPARE AND POSITION YOURSELF TO CHOOSE A HEALTHIER PARTNER AND BUILD A THRIVING KINGDOM RELATIONSHIP LEADING TO A BLISSFUL MARRIAGE
Why should I even get married? I totally understand if you are among the singles who nurse this thought and I hold no grudges against you. With the recent occurrences of domestic violence, adultery, and deceit in marriage, such apathy toward marriage is expected.
Again, the indifference towards marriage is further cemented by the possibility of being able to lead a fulfilling life as a single. Why then should you commit to someone for the rest of your life? What if they change? What if things get bad? What if you lose your friends, freedom, voice, and individuality?
I understand your concerns, fears, alternatives, and decisions. IT IS WELL UNDERSTOOD. But let us go back to the beginning. The purpose of the marriage institution is incomplete without that
When God created Adam and Eve, it wasn't because He wanted them to just have fun and live happily ever after. He created them for His purposes. Do you remember how the scripture says: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and every other thing will be added to you? Yeah! That's the core
The first thing that must happen in your life and marriage is the fulfilment of God’s plan and purposes — which comes with eternal rewards. Companionship, sexual intimacy, purpose execution, childbearing, and the adventurous lifestyles in your marriage come as additions.
God knew you before you were born. He had plans for you. He also had plans to lead you to a partner that will make heaven manifest in your home. All you need is ALIGNMENT, INTIMACY, PREPARATION, POSITIONING, AND OBEDIENCE.
Sounds simple, right? Yeah, I know. And that is the issue we have with singles and married people today. Everybody is trying to do their own thing! Marriage is a picture of the relationship between Christ and the Church. This shows, there will be imperfections and grace, lost seasons and redemption, pain and healing, and seasons of confusion and transformation in the home.
For these to occur, there might be challenges, conflict, betrayals, and misunderstandings. Regardless, when you both agree to walk with God intentionally, He changes the rhythm of your home and keeps you both planted, established, and nourished in His presence. This is how it was in the Garden of Eden
Adam and Eve messed up because they grew up too fast to make decisions that could affect their lives. No preparation, no process, no planning, just two adults with no previous experience. This made it easy for them to believe the lies of the enemy. They wanted the knowledge of good and evil and this is what people pursue in today’s world.
You don’t have to struggle. You should wonder if there are people who have had a successful marriage. How did they do it? Was God honoured in their home? Are they both happy and living within God’s plan? What system did they create? What principles did they follow? Did they lose themselves in the process?
Some of the reasons why marriages fail include:
An awareness of the possible issues that beset marriages helps you quickly spot them and tackle them when they arise — thereby, preparing you adequately for marriage.
It is possible to find someone outside marriage who can give you companionship, sex, money, security, and happiness. All these perks may motivate you to settle in marriage, but as a believer, how do these draw you back or away from God? Are you deeply content with living a lie?
Even if God speaks to you about your partner, you must work on yourself to make things work well for you. You cannot afford to be ignorant about making it work. It is important to prepare, whether before you settle, in the process of settling, or in marriage.
It is the reason this platform was set up for you.

I had a mind-shift in the 'purpose of marriage' class. I got to know more about communication with both my spouse and even my in-laws. I also got to learn a lot from the different discussions in the Ready Group which I belonged to. I had the opportunity to also meet with great minds. I learnt about finances as well, when a guest mentor came around.
