THE PURPOSE DRIVEN RELATIONSHIP
Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. NIV
I know you have big plans for your wedding day, I know you have decided “the whole world we hear it” on that day, the bridal costumes, the bridal train, the beautiful setting, the glitz and glamour of the reception and the spectacular Emceeing that must happen, not to talk of the fantastically ravishing honey moon that you must have, if you are like most people, you would have a fantasized every of the details long before it even happens, well good luck on your wedding ceremony, what I am really interested in is after the wedding, after the hone moon, I am interested in your marriage itself and for a good reason, if you make all the plans for your wedding without a deep understanding of the whole essence and purpose of that marriage, you may join the statistics of people who wish they knew better. I believe that if you understood relationship in terms of the purpose for wish God created it, your own case will surely be different from the mass of people who are floundering in marriages. Let’s explore some things about purpose
PURPOSE PRODUCE AND MAINTAINS PASSION.
passion is a very powerful; force that drives many relationships, people move from one throe of passion to another thinking that that passion will last forever, but without understanding the purpose of that marriage, passion will die a natural death, passion can Not hold your marriage together in thin air, it has to have the substance of purpose to do that. I have realized couples who are destiny partners are usually more in Love each other than couples who are just in Love for the sake of Love. Couples who are pursuing a selfless Endeavour usually have the capacity to care and commit themselves more to their partners than couples who are just self absorbed. Until you discover the reason for your existence, you will basically be a distraction to your spouse. Some people enjoy hanging out with their friends’ more than spending time with their spouse because they have little in common than the bed and the house they share, they do not share purpose so their passion is limited to what their skin can offer them in bed. Couples who have best of times in marriage are usually best of friends in life, and you can’t be best of friends if you do not share a deep purpose together. Note that passion lasts only as purpose last,
PURPOSE POWERS YOUR RELATIONSHIP
When a couple is very conscious of the reason why God brought them together, they will naturally look forward to every day of the marriage relationship. you have someone whom you know is your best friend , you have someone whom you know you can always share your thoughts and goals with , since both of you are team partner, you know he or she cares about what you care about, not that one is hindering the other person, imagine your purpose is to give hope to the homeless, but your wife just want to have no business to do with strangers, she wants you all to herself and nobody must share you with her, that is a disastrous situation, because such a wife will always negate every attempt of the husband at expressing this passionate locked up in his heart. This will eventually build up frustration in that man, so much that if he is not careful, may corrode his very essence. Wrong marriage I believe is the greatest obstacle to fulfilling destiny so we must exercise caution here. This may even lead to divorce, because you may reason that you do rather remain a single than die without releasing the treasure within you. As a woman too ,watch the man you follow, since if he move in the direction you have no passion for, you might become an hindrance to him.
PURPOSE PRESERVES YOUR RELATIONSHIP
Any relationship that is merely a product of like or love emotion can never stand the test of time; such a relationship will die when it faces the fire of trials. but when you relationship is rooted in a purposeful pursuit, the two of you will stand through tough times and keep looking at the future both of you have structured ahead of you. Both of you will wake up and dream together even if you are poor financially at the moment, but because both of you have a vision propelling you; storms of life cannot easily sink your relationship. Any marriage that breaks up, breaks up due to lost of purpose or was never founded on purpose. I believe this the foundation for a successful marital destiny, a purpose driven marriage
PURPOSE PURIFIES YOUR RELATIONSHIP
when you see couples in a courtship indulging sexually, you have seen couples who have no destiny priority, every man and woman of destiny knows that there are some actions that will corrupt their purpose, that the moment they become selfish and recklessly indulge in sexual immorality they will dig a hole in the bond of trust that sustains the focus that they have for each other. once sexual impulses begin to dictate what you do inside a relationship, purpose will take back bench, distractions will easily set in, your vision get weakened and if care is not taken, if you pollute your relationship too much you can totally defeat yourselves in that relationship. But when both of your know that you have a future to preserve, you have a destiny to prepare for, you have lives that you want to impact, you will be able to discipline yourselves and keep your dignity in that relationship
PURPOSE POSITIONS YOU FOR A SUCCESFUL RELATIONSIP
