Does God care who I marry? Does God care about who I date?
The frustration or sorrow you feel right now will not last always. I waited for many years but you can trust that there are no flaws in God’s plan and He knows exactly what He is doing…for you.
God cares about who you date, how you date, and who you marry, because He cares about you.
I don’t care who disagrees. There are some people out there who are misleading Christian single men and women. They are persuading them that God does not care about who, when, or if they marry. As if God is far out in the distance and He is unable to see the place in life where you are.
They want you to take matters into your own hands and leave God out of the equation, so you do not have to “wait” any longer. They encourage you to find a fast fix for the tears you cry instead of looking to God to find contentment.
I’ve heard it all before….
You don’t have to seek God and wait for an answer from Him about marriage.
Marriages are likely to end up in a divorce so your waiting is in vain.
Lower your standards and compromise your convictions.
You’re getting older so find someone you can reasonably get along with and make it work.
Being “happily married” is not reality.
You have a questionable past so you have take who you can get.
It’s better to have a toxic relationship than none at all.
True love only happens in the movies.
These are all Lies… Lies… Lies…
[singlepic id=17 w=270 h=190 float=left] First, God cares about your sorrow and concern regarding your singleness. As we wait we must keep in mind that God designed love and marriage. Why would He not want to be included in the design of your love life. Can He not make it all that you ever dreamed of? Can God not exceed your expectations? He loves you and wants you to have abundant life… this includes a blessed marriage. Let God get involved even it means waiting a little while longer. It will be worth it all.
Although none of us are immune to hurt, God does not want you to bear unnecessary heart breaks and disappointments. This is what often comes when we start relationships without the hand of God to guide us. We can’t always see the dangers that lie ahead, nor can we always discern the true intent of someone’s heart. Let God open the door to the right husband or wife that will walk in agreement with your purpose.
God sees the details. He knows where the relationship pitfalls are and how you can avoid them. He can give you the best love affair of your life and make your marriage strong. It takes the right two people coming together and God has the plan to make this possible.
And until the time of your marriage, God cares about your needs while you are single. Go to Him for everything. Trust in Him for a whole and healthy single life. God has more in store for you than what you have prayed for.
No, God has not forgotten you.
