I ran down the partial list in my head and realized they were all there. As I began to observe his life and how he interacted with others, as well as how wonderfully he always treated me, I decided that there could really be something here.
As I prayed about it, I felt like God gave me permission to pursue it. And now, after nearly four years of marriage I am so glad I followed God’s leading.
I truly wanted to do what I felt was God’s will, but I also really didn’t want to give up the relationship.
It wasn’t until I was fully ready to obey God’s leading, that the answer came.
However, once I put God in charge of my love life, a funny thing happened.
For instance, one guy that I dated was a very nice guy.
After that relationship, I had come to the end of my dating rope.
“I don’t want to fall in love with anyone else until it is ‘the right one,’” I told God.
Since I had not done such a great job of choosing relationships on my own, I decided to let God choose the next one.
I wouldn’t even consider dating again until I had sought His will about the person and the relationship.
It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.
