Gay Marriage, Good News & Bad News

I’ve got good news and bad news. For those who believe they are gay and have dreamed about how great it would be to be able to marry their partner, the good news is, the USA now says you may.

The bad news is that marriage does not have the ability to make you happy. Years ago, I read, until a person does the hard work to become whole, all relationships are an attempt to complete oneself and therefore will fall dismally flat.

The truth about life is true happiness comes from within, from surrender to God, from being spiritually and emotionally healthy and not from some other person or even the right to be with another person.

Often we are under the illusion that if I could only have this one elusive thing, all would be well in my world. Unfortunately, until you discover what I wrote in the previous paragraph, there will always be just one more elusive thing you need to gain then you will be happy.

Right after high school graduation, some friends of mine said they were moving to California. My dad said to me, Scottie, if you can’t be happy in Williamsport, PA, you won’t be happy in California either. I thought he was crazy then, but I know what he meant now.

The Supreme Court’s ruling will help some, there is great celebration today from the victory that has been achieved and fought long and hard to gain. The reality is the decision does not have the power to deliver happiness. For all who thought that decision was the one thing standing between you and being satisfied in life, you will soon discover you were sorely mistaken.

My desire would be for everyone on the planet to find surrender of their will to God’s will and to know peace and serenity from deep within.



About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
