I was scrolling through Facebook and I came across this page “Godly Dating 101”
The first 2 pictures reminded me of what I went though years ago. I spend 7 years in one relationship and near the end God started to open my eyes. In these 7 years I placed one man ahead of everything I done, sadly it was not God.
After so long I could not understand why God made me go through so much pain, so much tears and so much heartache. I was miserable for months.
Until one day I literally fell on my knees and asked God to show me what his plans were for my life.
Weeks went by and I continued to look back on what I lost, I could not understand how I wasted all of those years, but I continued to pray. And then I remembered what our now late Pastor used to minister to the young adults of our church. He encouraged young, single people to not just pray and ask God for the right partner, but we needed to be specific about our requests.
Then I started praying, all I asked for was a partner who would love me and grow in Christ with me. I was convinced I could not do it on my own. Even though it may have been for the wrong reason, I know God placed my fiance in my life because of that request and prayers.
So we may not understand anything God does in the madness of life, but once we calm and reflect of His work, it all becomes so clear.
In all of our heartache and sorrow,
we need to remember that God will never put you through anything you cannot handle.
