There’s no such thing as a perfect person and all of us have flaws so don’t expect a person to be 100% great. Don’t allow people to criticize you and make you feel like you have to have all of your ducks in a row in order for you to step into a godly union. It is indeed not true and folks will feed you myths so you can stay stuck and feel down on yourself; the most insignificant and minute things can create a setback. You aren’t perfect and your mate will not be flawless; both of you will be each other’s mirrors and will have to sort out particular issues from both sides, past emotional and mental baggage. Things will be pointed out in you that needs to be plucked up out of you and vice versa; to separate what is holy and what’s not of God in each of you; at times it will hurt but it will be for your good. Both of you will learn and grow together and will be imperfectly perfect for one another.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.
As a life partner, we will learn to accept corrective criticism, make changes and respond in the same way we do with God when He points out something that needs to be corrected in us. The more we are purged, pruned and refined, the more Christlike we will become and love our spouses more properly and in the way God intended for us to love….unconditionally. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)❤
