(ANON QUESTION RECEIVED FROM GodfirstGodalways)
I meet my bf at church when we were kids at church. After high school we stopped talking bc of college and life. We are now 22. I joined a new church that he is apart of. We decided to start dating.We’re talking about marriage and we said I love you very early in our relationship. I feel like we are moving fast but it feels right. I have prayed to God about him and our relationship but have yet to receive an answer. I don’t want to continue if it’s not what God wants. Any advice?
That’s awesome. 🙂 You are good where you are, knowing that you don’t want to continue if it’s not what God wants. Stay humble. I can relate because my boyfriend and I say I love you to each other, and marriage comes up not at all too often, which is great. I would say just keep praying about it everyday. Tell the LORD, you only want what’s best (His best) for you and him, and that you’re willing to be patient with the pace, ask for eyes to see His will, ask for righteousness in all your activities with him, ask for focus on Jesus, and ask if your words to one another are pleasing to Him and tell Him that you will be careful not to move ahead without God as your foundation and intention behind all that you do within this relationship. Keep seeking His heart. Don’t stop praying about the progress of your relationship, praise him and thank Him, continually ask for guidance especially on how to communicate Jesus’ love towards one another. Surrender him to God everyday, remember he’s not yours. The relationship you have is God’s. My advice is pray and journal. Journal about your relationship with the Lord, write love letters to Him if you’re not already doing that. I’m happy for you and I’m praying for you! 🙂
