And they lived happily ever after.”
It’s been a long time since I read a fairy tale. So I had to pick up a children’s book to make sure the happily ever after was still there. Although many of the stories have been revised, the fairy tales still preach the same concepts. 1-There is only one true soul mate. 2-Only when you find your soul mate, you will find true happiness.
One of my best girlfriends— who loved reading romantic novels—believed this for years. I’m not sure it was her studying the Word more in depth or her last relationship which ended in marriage that helped her see clearer. The truth is you can be compatible with more than one person.
Is your belief in the "Soul Mate-Only One" Myth keeping you from leaving a dating relationship that's not good for you? Or is this belief keeping you from looking at new dating relationships because you feel you lost the “right” one—your soul mate?
“Rather, an ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, taught that men and women were made in one body, but separated by the gods. Each man and woman scours the earth for their perfect spouse, so the two can again become one. Phrases like "my other half" or "my better half" actually come from this Greek myth.”
This article in the Christian Post is certainly enlightening and is in agreement with Colossians 2:10. This scripture reminds us that we are complete in Christ.
