In building a house, we know that the first thing is to lay the foundation which must be strong and must follow specifications because a storey building’s foundation will be different from a bungalow. Once the foundation of a house is shaky; there is tendency the house will not be strong and prone to falling. . A proper foundation does more than just to hold a house above ground. It also keeps out moisture, insulates against the cold, and resists movement of the earth around it. Oh, and one more thing: It should last forever. . No wonder the Bible said in Psalm 11:3 that ‘If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?’ It really buttress the importance of foundation, now let’s consider how serious this is in respect to relationship (Courtship) using our available tools. . I researched about building and found out that a good foundation requires a lot more than digging a hole and pouring some concrete into forms. It must be tailored to its site like a custom suit, taking into account soil conditions, water tables, even the quality of the backfill. And as with a custom suit, every detail must be perfect: the base properly compacted, the formwork set up right, the concrete free of voids. Neglect even one of these, and the most carefully poured foundation can fail. So also, a good courtship requires more than love. . Before the building, you must first plan the location of the building on site which means you must plan to know who your partner is and how can you achieve this, by simply asking the One who knows the end from the beginning which is God. Like a house with a sandy foundation, a relationship that is not founded upon God’s backup is headed for a fall in no time. . You don’t know how to pray as regards partner? Check my blog for an article titled ‘Right Partner’, it explains those questions on your mind on how to know a right partner which the first and most important ingredient for a successful marriage. . Next to knowing the location of the building (permanent site *winks*), it is time to set out for the work using different tools which we shall consider tomorrow by His grace, but before then, note that it is not too early to start praying as regards prayer partner especially as you are now an adult, I never said teenager please. . God bless you
