How many times I laid awake uneasy, battling God over my love life, wondering when God would make it happen and fighting the desire to make it happen myself.
Or in the beginning, when I was dating my daughter’s father and God told me to walk away – breaking apart my daughter’s chance of a whole family, leaving the comfort of a relationship, knowing that this meant God wanted me to date Him, essentially, and learn who I really was in Him, single, without any man to sway me or mold me into their perfect companion (which I always did). It was easily the most life-changing, surreal, validating, and rewarding experience of my life as well.
God Is Still In Control It’s easy to feel that you wasted a months or even years of your life with the wrong person, but isn’t it also easy to forget that God is still in control?
If it didn’t work out, there will be sorrow, but you should never feel it was a waste of time, for everything there is a season, and a purpose under Heaven (Ecclesiastes 3).
Well, this post may be for you if any of the above applied to you.
We courted for 1 year and 8 months and kissed for the first time on 8/14/2010. SO, let's first quickly break down the difference between courting & dating. We STAYED out in groups with people and family & we were rarely alone in our almost 2 year courting process. It wasn't EASY but if it was EASY, everybody would do it.
Before we even get into that-- let's just make sure that we're ALL on the same page. You can't just "say" you're a Christian cuz you go to church. It was great for him and I to see how each other interacted with others in large groups.
All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
If you’re an intentional Christian who purely desires God’s will to be done in your life, you shouldn’t feel like you wasted your time in a relationship that didn’t work out.
For several reasons, God can use relationships to spiritually mold you.
Are there ways to reduce the risk of failure and improve marital happiness in remarriage?
How do you avoid unwelcome and unsettling surprises after it is too late to reconsider a relationship?
BUT deep down, YOU want your relationship to glorify God. God may be trying to speak to you concerning that guy.. If God is cool with you staying with him (and BOTH sides have repented and made a decision to honor God) then start this journey on the same PAGE (amos 3:3). STOP cuddling, rubbing, putting yourself in 1:1 situations and if it's late, you shouldn't be at each others house! (Proverbs ) STOP watching stupid reality TV songs, going to clubs, love-sex songs, pornography or blogs.
YOU want to make things work but you just cannot figure out how to turn off that switch. Do you think that God doesn't look at ya'll playing around with the SAME destest?! SO stop being all sexual as you sing & dance a beyonce song to your guy.
