Hello everyone! In today’s episode of “Will You Marry Me?”, I’d like to talk to you about, “God Is Not a Matchmaker.” My aim is to dispel a misconception that’s prevalent in certain religious circles, especially among Christians.

The Question Martha Dodged
The truth is, Martha is not alone. Even today, for most of us resurrection is confined to “the last day” – whatever that means. In the meantime, we have accepted sickness and death normal. But Jesus’ instruction to us was unambiguous: “Heal the sick, raise the dead” (Matthew 10:8).
Building Trust in a Relationship
But because marriage is by nature a covenant between two people, everything depends on mutual trust. Trust must therefore be carefully cultivated, nurtured, and protected.
Trust is difficult and unnatural, so it takes more work on our part. Love, on the other hand, is natural. When love fades, there are ways to revive it. But the same can’t be said of trust. Once trust is gone, trying to recover it is an uphill task. If a couple can’t trust each other, their relationship is a sinking ship.
From Believing to Knowing
In his ministry, Jesus said many things about his relationship with God, but not once did he suggest that he was a believer. On the contrary, in all his statements, he made it clear that he was a knower of God and had come to testify to this experience. He minced no words when he explained this to Nicodemus: “Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony” (John 3:11, NIV).
5 Ways You Can Improve Your Attractiveness
The universe operates through the Law of Attraction. Learning to attract love is a better alternative to chasing love. In life, those who chase tend to struggle, whereas those who rely on the power of attraction tend to get what they want – with minimal effort.
Admittedly, attractiveness is a relative term. What’s attractive to Alice might be loathsome to Linda. That’s life. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” as they say.
