"Life's a journey. Pick a partner that'll be with you all the way."
I saw this poster in one of Maybank's branches. I know the quote is referring to the bank itself, but I have a stronger feeling to relate this quote to the quest of finding our real life partner.
Nothing is easy in life. Life's journey ain't easy. Finding a life partner is even harder. Wishful thinking doesn't help. Having expectations makes things worse.
In the end, despite how much I loathe hearing these statements: "When the time comes, your right someone will appear out of nowhere", "Your someone will appear the moment you stop looking", I have to agree these are the best answers to anyone asking, "How do you know that someone is the right one?"
I don't know how, but I'm glad the Lord knows everything. He has His perfect timing and arrangement despite our doubts, worries, and uncertainties.
The Lord has found my life partner and we are now married. :)
Here's a very encouraging Bible verse:
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint."
