Forgive me for questioning this but i often wonder!

If marriages are made in heaven, why is it that so many people are divorcing today?
question by-Sharon


Any thoughtful person today has to be concerned about the state of marriage in our country and in the Western world at large. Marriage seems to be on the rocks, and it’s not clear what the future holds.
 
                                  Divorce has become too easy to obtain,
 
                            and it’s having detrimental effects on our world.

With over 6 billion people in the world, we choose only one person in the world meant to be "My Husband / My Wife" !
Now, Does God has a hand in this love equation?

God’s intention for man and woman "from the beginning" (Matt. 19:8) was a lifelong union.

Shortly after God created humanity, he instituted marriage. This is evidenced in the second chapter of the Bible: "Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh" (Gen. 2:24).

“So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matt. 19:6).

Twin flames, twin souls and divine complements are metaphysical terms more reflective of the divine nature of the relationship. Of the three, divine complement better expresses the spiritual connection and complementary character of the relationship, two opposites who as a pair reflect a balanced union as "soulmate" .

The term "soulmate" by definition is someone to whom you have a natural and deep affinity, bonded in commonality and compatible in most ways.

Fact: One Person in the World
Your divine complement is your twin soul and twin flame whom since the beginning of creation has been linked to you through a mystery - a heart-spirit connection. He or she represents that one person to whom you are most connected soul-to-soul and spirit-to-spirit, and with whom you may have an opportunity to meet and bond with at the human dimension. Your divine complement holds inborn potentials that match and complement your own and carries the key to your spiritual evolution. They are your ultimate complementary match.

Fiction: Happily-Ever-After
The romantic notion that soul mates are guaranteed a life of romantic bliss with extraordinary heights of sexual and spiritual ecstasy, and have so much in common that they will never fight, is a myth sending many to search endlessly for the perfect person. In truth, the passion sparks don't necessarily fly in the beginning and the two are so opposite that getting along can be a challenge. Fate will present challenges that may be anything but happy experiences to test the commitment to love.

Fact: Destiny and Fate Design the Way
The majority of twin souls, divine complements, have a destiny to at least meet in this life and most are meant to build their relationship into a lasting commitment. Their union is spirit-driven. Divine complements come together by "divine design" and at the perfect time often through serendipity to begin their journey. A co-created design, a destiny plan, was set in motion just before the incarnation, spelling out what the couple promised to achieve. Just because the relationship is "meant-to-be", doesn't guarantee the relationship will work.

Fiction: Soulmates Think Alike and Like the Same Things
"True soulmates" are more likely to be opposites who complement each other nicely. Your twin possesses a unique intelligence with qualities that summon up your more hidden potentials, pointing you to a reflection of wholeness, the balance of masculine and feminine traits. These complementary qualities can also be blended together to form a balanced and successful partnership. It is often true that soulmates won't see eye to eye on everything, because they grew up with different sets of values. Valuing each other will prove more important than valuing and liking the same things.

Fact: Soulmates Share a Highly Developed Sixth Sense
It is often true that soulmates pick up on each other's psychic cues, finish each other's sentences and communicate telepathically. They are in sync a lot of the time. It is not uncommon for a soulmate to sense it when their soulmate is distressed, picking up on negative emotional currents even at a distance or to dream more detailed information about their emotional wellbeing. The spirit-driven synergy soulmates share creates a unified field of creativity producing signs and synchronicities that flood each other's consciousness. This is why there are usually magical and meaningful signs that authenticate the soulmate connection when soulmates meet.

Fiction: It will never be the same with someone else.
Less soulmates come together and commit to a long-term relationship. Therefore, there is every possibility that you can have a soulful and complementary relationship with someone else, fall in love, bond in friendship and be happy. In fact, you could be happier with someone else, a love-match who complements you in some of the same ways your soulmate does.

          One writer deeply interested in finding his soulmate, was Richard Bach, who immortalised his three-year hunt and subsequently married to actress Leslie Parrish. Aware that nothing happens by chance, he abandoned his illusions, sold his biplane, kept his life on hold, and went looking for the Perfect Woman, a full-time quest for his "dear unknown".

         There were doubts aplenty in Bach's mind: Is it a gamble? Is love a passport to disaster? Is it possible for soul mates to meet and then separate forever? Is the only true soul mate to be found in many different people? Am I making a huge investment of hope to one human being? Will I lose it all?

         In Parrish, he eventually realised, he had found the person he had never met but had been missing all his life. And Bach's views have not changed, for, almost a decade later, he writes: "My wife is a loving and beautiful woman, the soul mate found after I had given up searching."


Twenty years into her marriage, Bangalore-based Prema Seshadri, 44, has some clear views on the subject, though she confesses to having revised her opinion many times. Observes Seshadri: "The search for a soul mate is essentially a search for balance."

Seshadri began her research on soul mates when she found that things were not going well for her and her husband: "I had been married for 14 years when I started to question: Who is this man? Am I bonded to him? Why to him? And so on."

She details some other findings: "Soul mates form a process of completion—the yin and yang balance. We are all moving around in life doing several things required for living, but fundamentally we are in search for that balance. Then comes the concept of marriage.

Living and growing together, man and woman achieve balance within. The process is thus complete, both are one."

It is not so simple, with its 'finding unity and hence living happily ever after' kind of conclusion, admits Seshadri, who now considers anyone who helps you grow spiritually to be a different type of soul mate. "Actually a husband is a Real soul mate".


A soul mate could be a missing half of your soul. "A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are... Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life."
 


 


A Beautiful Life just doesn't happen.
It is Built Daily in Prayer, Humility, Sacrifice & Love.
May a Beautiful Life be yours Forever…


"We explore the stars and the depths of the sea but how much
do we know about ourselves and the reason for being here?"


I am absolutely convinced of this: your family will enjoy more closeness in your relationships, as well as experience more restoration from past hurts, when you prioritize conversing with God in prayer.

The Lord created you as a physical, mental and spiritual entity. When you pray regularly, you are stimulating the spiritual part of your being that all too often rests dormant...
unused...
ignored...
neglected.
 
Prayer helps make you - and your spouse, your children, and your relatives - whole and more complete in Him!
 
Don't overlook it in your home any longer! Here's a trio of ways you can empower your family by prioritizing prayer:
 
1.
Pray with each other as a family group - This builds the sense of spiritual community in your home, the realization you are one as a family and that you serve the same God. In a family, one should regularly get together to talk to God, usually around the dinner table or elsewhere. You will discovere that praying for each other as a family connects us. There's nothing more intimate than praying with a person that you love, and when you do that as a family, it's powerful.
 
2.
Pray for each other individually - In my personal life, I've noticed that when I'm praying for someone in my family, it's easier to love them. You'll become a little more patient with them, and will begin to see your family members in a positive, more healthy perspective. Another great benefit of conversing with God about your loved ones is that it forces you to find out exactly what's going on in their lives. When I pray for someone, I need to know her needs - emotionally, physically and spiritually - so I can speak to God about them.
 
3.
Couples praying together for their marriage - Talking with God together as husband and wife, perhaps more than anything else you can do as a couple, will help you keep the vows you made to each other on your wedding day. You are acknowledging to the Lord that He is in charge of your marriage, and that you are committed to staying together and making your marriage work, regardless of the challenges you may face.
 
Bible teacher once said, "The power of prayer can never be overestimated because of the omnipotent God who hears and answers." As prayer becomes a daily, vibrant facet of your family's existence, don't be surprised when the relationships in your home become happier and healthier.
 
Bring God alive in your family as never before. Make the power of prayer a reality for your loved ones today!

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
– Matthew 6:6

 

Building and maintaining a strong and loving family in today's culture takes a determined will and a conscious and sustained effort on the part of every family member. With so many things competing for our time and attention it is easy to lose sight of the value and significance of the close, loving relationships our families can provide.

It's often been said that when a person comes to the end of their life they realize that the only things that really matter are the loving relationships that were established and cultivated throughout the years - especially those with family.

If you want to build a firm foundation of love and support for your family that will stand the test of time and weather the storms of difficult life circumstances, we encourage you to embrace these ten resolutions for building a strong family.


While trusting God for the love and strength we'll need,
our family resolves to...

I. LIVE OUR LIVES ACCORDING TO WHAT WE VALUE AND BELIEVE ...EVEN WHEN IT ISN'T POPULAR!

But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

II. RESPOND TO EACH OTHER WITH KIND WORDS AND ACTIONS ...EVEN WHEN WE HAVE BEEN HURT OR ARE ANGRY!

Be kind and compassionate to one another... Ephesians 4:32
A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly. Proverbs 14:29

III. LOVE EACH FAMILY MEMBER FOR WHO GOD CREATED THEM TO BE ... EVEN WHEN WE DON'T UNDERSTAND OUR DIFFERENCES!

...love one another deeply, from the heart. 1 Peter 1:22

IV. UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER BEFORE TRYING TO BE UNDERSTOOD ...EVEN WHEN WE BELIEVE WE ARE RIGHT!

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry... James 1:19

V. MAKE OUR HOME A PLACE WHERE EVERYONE WANTS TO BE ...EVEN WHEN WE KNOW IT STILL WON'T BE PERFECT!

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:8-9

VI. SAY "I LOVE YOU" TO EACH OTHER EVERY DAY ...EVEN WHEN WE DON'T ALWAYS FEEL LIKE IT!

An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. Proverbs 12:25
A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Proverbs 25:11

VII. ADMIT WHEN WE ARE WRONG AND BE QUICK TO APOLOGIZE ...EVEN WHEN SAYING "I'M SORRY" IS DIFFICULT!

Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24

VIII. SPEND TIME TOGETHER HAVING FUN ...EVEN WHEN THERE IS WORK TO BE DONE!

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Matthew 6:34

IX. NEVER GIVE UP ON EACH OTHER ...EVEN WHEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES APPEAR HOPELESS!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10

X. FORGIVE EACH OTHER WHEN WE HAVE BEEN HURT OR OFFENDED ...EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT ASKED FOR!

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13


The Church clearly teaches
that divorce does not—indeed cannot—end sacramental marriage
.

"A ratified and consummated marriage
cannot be dissolved by any human power
or for any reason other than death"
(Code of Canon Law 1141).

 Only death dissolves a sacramental marriage.

“Power Of Love”
Lyrics:-
 
I’ll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
 
Feels like fire
I’m so in love with you
Dreams are like angels
They keep bad at bay-bad at bay
Love is the light
Scaring darkness away-yeah
 
I’m so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal
 
The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal
 
I’ll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I’ll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you
 
Envy will hurt itself
Let yourself be beautiful
Sparkling love, flowers
And pearls and pretty girls
Love is like an energy
Rushin’ rushin’ inside of me
 
The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal
 
This time we go sublime
Lovers entwine-divine divine
Love is danger, love is pleasure
Love is pure-the only treasure
 
I’m so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal
 
The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
The power of love
A force from above
A sky-scraping dove
 
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal
 
I’ll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door.
