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" ending was still there. Although many of the stories have been revised, the fairy tales still convey the same message. 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 concept for years. I’m not sure it was her studying the Word more in depth or her last relationship ending in marriage, which 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?
Hunt's comments are not only enlightening but are in agreement with Colossians 2:10. "And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power." We are complete in Christ. We don't search the world looking for our other half because we are complete in Christ!
What are your thoughts about the true soul mate myth?
