The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 NIV
If you forgive the other person and let go of the bitter feelings that you have for him/her, you will see his/her shortcomings differently. You will not see them as targets of your attacks, but see them as something that you can complement.
The fact that there is more than one person in this world is not so that we can compare ourselves to each other or point out each other’s weaknesses- it is so that we can help each other. It is to make up for the fact that “it is not good to be alone.”
And, the first human relationship designed in this world was a marital relationship. That’s why marital relationships should be helpful and complementing relationships.
Me and my wife, Satomi, have different strengths and weaknesses. But because God is at the center of our relationship, they do not become factors that separate us but rather magnets that bring us closer together.
Because we give to each other, obey each other, follow the same thing, share goals, forgive each other, and recognize each other’s values, we become one and complement each other in creating greater things.
Will your romantic relationship or romantic feelings lead to a relationship of complementing each other?
Each of us has a hole that needs to be filled. It cannot be filled by your boyfriend/girlfriend, your friends, or even your family- it can only be filled by God.
God loves you with a love that has no holes. That’s why He can fill you, touch you, and use you to help someone else.
Continue to receive the love that God has given you and know that you can continue to be an amazing partner to someone.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
With this, we end our relationship series! Thank you for reading it. Praying for everyone’s relationships to overflow with great things! Nobuki
