Do you trust God with your desire for marriage and intimacy? Do you think your past failures ensure future disappointment?Could you scream because of all the conflicting advice you read about singleness these days?! I ask them soberly, tenderly, and with fresh wounds upon my own heart.It must bless other people in the sense that they realize it has to be God.I truly, honestly believe that in order to let God write your love story, you must surrender everything to Him first. Some people tell me that it’s God who is asking them to surrender it. There are times in our lives when we don’t trust God enough with a certain relationship we’re holding on so tightly to. And we think that God isn’t able to write our love story as much as we are able to.My response is “If it is God, don’t think about it.” Here’s why: This entry has been inspired by a really good friend of mine who is going through a tough time in life with God.

She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle. Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy. She extends her hands to the spinning staff, and her hands hold the spindle.Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. I know it hurts, but God uses this situation to work in a believers life to conform them into the image of His Son and build their faith. ” Sometimes we are not ready financially, spirituality, in maturity, or it’s just not God’s will yet.
