The man im not dating

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 had to ask myself, “Is he really on the same page as me when it comes to my Christian faith?

” “If we have children, will it be important to him that they are raised by godly principles and involved in church?

” It turns out we were not in sync on these issues, and I decided to end the relationship. But I began to notice subtle patterns that bothered me.

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.

However, once I put God in charge of my love life, a funny thing happened.

I began to see in Matt several of those “husband material traits” that I had been searching for with other guys.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.It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.We had met in college and built a solid friendship through the years, but I had not considered him in a romantic way (although he repeatedly let me know that he was somewhat interested in me).When friends began to point out other red flags about our relationship, I took some time to seriously seek God’s will on the matter.
