That idea [the one] is a steaming pile of garbage that has woman after woman in a search for the unicorn, the oompa loompa… See in this idiot ideology that we’ve created with our movies, if one person marries the wrong person doesn’t that jack it up for everybody? This is a foolish idea. I’m just a man and my wife is just a girl. She cannot complete me, cannot fulfill me, cannot make sense of my world. And to expect her to is to put pressure on her that she will be unable to carry, will be unable to sustain, and will be unable to bring any of those things into my life which will create in me an anger towards her for not doing what she was never designed to do, created to do, or able to do. So when a woman says this man will complete me, this man will make sense of my world, this man will help me know who I am, this man will heal my wounds… you are putting weight on a man that he will be unable to sustain and it will only be a matter of time before he develops hobbies to get out from under that expectation. Put your hope in God, not men. We’re sinners which means sometimes on accident and sometimes on purpose we are going to fail you and wound you. Don’t ask us to be more than we were designed to be.
I know it feels like the worst thing in the world just happened, but God says He’s in there, with a plan in place, transforming the worst into the very best. I have no idea how He does it, but He promises He’s doing it all the same.

I don’t think anyone understands how much I admire and respect Matt Chandler. I think God has truly given him some great wisdom and is working through him in my life.
