Years ago I asked God to send me a wife, for the Bible says “you
have not because you ask not“. I told the Lord not just
that I wanted a wife but even explained to him the kind of wife
I was looking for.
I told him I wanted someone who is kind, tender, gentle, compassionate,
loving, sincere, peaceful, generous, affectionate, understanding,
passionate, warm, intelligent, humorous, sensual, and trustful.
I even mentioned things I wanted her to be physically. And as
time passed, I would add more things to this list of my heart
desire for a wife.
Then one night in prayer God spoke to my heart and said... “Son
I can not give you what you've asked me for.“ I said, “Why
not Lord?“ He replied, “For I am a just God and a
God of righteousness and all I do is just and right.“ I
said, “Lord, I don't understand why I cannot have what I
have asked you for.“

He replied, “Then I will explain. It would not be just
and right for me to grant to you your wish for I cannot give unto
you something that you are not yourself. It would not be fair
for me to grant unto you a person that is loving if you can sometimes
be hateful, or someone that is kind if you can also be mean, someone
that is a forgiver and yet you can still carry a grudge, someone
that is sensitive and you are yet so insensitive... etc.
He said unto me, “Instead of wasting time trying to find
someone or hoping that I will give you someone with all these
qualities you seek, you should rather allow me to take this time
to allow you to become all it is that you are looking for. For
I cannot give to you that which you are not.“
“And if you allow me to work up on your spirit and to shape
and mold your heart as I choose then when you see the one I have
for you, you will be able to say like Adam said... “She
is bone of my bone and she is flesh of my flesh“ for you
will see yourself in her for you both will be one flesh.“
Keep this in mind.
This is for all:
the recently married;
the ones who have been married;
the soon to get married;
and the ones that are still looking.

God made woman from man's rib --
not from his head to top him,
nor from his feet to be walked upon;
but from his side to be his partner in life,
from under his arm to be protected by him,
and from near his heart to be loved by him.
Whether or not you believe in God, much of the above still applies.
