The right age to be married...WHEN IS THIS?

I'm not gonna:

~start this blog off by saying that it's been awhile since i last posted

~apologize for not regularly blogging

~say that i'll do better, because i may do better....and then again....i may not.....so i'm not gonna say anthing....;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What i am going to say is: i have an amazing sunday school class. My teacher teaches straight from the word of God and challenges us.

Today she began answering questions from cards that we had given her a few weeks ago.

The question was, when is the right age to get married?

pause: so this is a high school girls sunday school class; we have talk about dating and things of that nature for a couple months. and this was a very good question; i had kinda been wondering this too.......

My teacher (she is Ms. Audrey, my pastor's wife and an amazing woman of God....to read her blog, click here. )

She bega by taking us to Genesis 1, which tells of creation. Then we went on to chapter two and she began this list: (information taken from Genesis 2 -------------> should be read to get the full affect of what i'm saying)
------
Man:
  • God formed man
  • God planted the garden
  • God placed man in to the garden
  • God gave man a job and cultivates
  • God gave command-> postive and negative
  • God says that man needs a helper
  • God brought animals to Adam

After everything that happened above, God puts Adam in a deep deep sleep, takes on of Adam's ribs, and forms a woman.....When Adam awakens, he finds a WOMAN......and not just any woman either. He finds....

HIS WOMAN!!

ok...so look at the list that was made and think about it in the sense of how we answer the question: when is the right age to get married?

Have you thought about it? Don't read any further till you have......

ok.....notice that before God brings Adam's woman, God gives Adam a job to.....do what?

TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR HIS WIFE!!!!!

Now do you see the answer to the question? When i found it out, it was like a light balb turned on a a very very dark room........

I praise the Lord that this specific teaching is being brought forth!! Isn't God's great "uncommon sense" (wisdom) just the best?!

Keep goin' with God, Caroline!

It really is...Especially when you have that moment where it finally makes sense and the lightbulb comes on!
