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.
But although he said his faith was important to him, attending church and reading the Bible were not high on his priority list.
And as I look back on past relationships, I can see why Matt and I are the best match compared to others we each dated.
Don’t get me wrong, you could probably make your current relationship work.
Ever had these thoughts about someone you are dating? Too many of my friends are finding themselves there now too.
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.
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.
I’d been struggling with making a decision about this particular relationship for at least a year.In some relationships, I found myself compromising some of my values to be more in line with that guy’s.In other relationships, I began to think that some of the things I had wanted in a husband were perhaps more wishful thinking than things that could actually be.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.It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.
