Did those caring, sensitive, funny, godly men really exist?
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.
Later on, when I prayed about the possibility of marriage, God answered that prayer clearly too. It’s not that my husband and I never disagree, or that we do not get on each other’s nerves periodically, but married life is so much simpler when you know that this is the person that God led you to.
With that in mind, we know God will see us through whatever difficulties we face in the future.
I can’t say that I’m an expert on relationships, but if there is one thing that I feel like God taught me during my dating years (and it took about three years too many for me to learn this) it is that you should never settle for less than God’s best.But although he said his faith was important to him, attending church and reading the Bible were not high on his priority list.I had to ask myself, “Is he really on the same page as me when it comes to my Christian faith?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.
