5 Benefits That Come with Waiting Over
As a marriage life coach, sadly, I must admit that I have seen quite a few examples of people who settled when it came to who they chose to be their life partner. Some got married because they were scared that they wouldn’t get another opportunity than the one who was before them at the time. Some got married because they were scared that their clock was ticking. Some got married because they were scared that they would end up alone.
And do you know one thing that all of those motives have in common? Fear.
Recently, I read an article about a woman who has a rare disorder. It’s called Urbach-Wiethe syndrome and the people with it literally do not know what fear feels like. The piece was talking about all of the risks that come with not being afraid. However, I thought about it from the perspective of two Scriptures. One is 2 Timothy 1:7(NKJV): “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” The other is I John 4:18(NKJV): “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
Wouldn’t relationships be amazing if fear wasn’t our motive for getting into them in the first place?
