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 believe that there are any number of people that we each could marry and make it work – and even be happy.But I also believe that we will be happiest in marriage if we allow God to choose our mate for us.It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.
But in each relationship there were things that didn’t feel quite right.
But although he said his faith was important to him, attending church and reading the Bible were not high on his priority list.
I had to ask myself, “Is he really on the same page as me when it comes to my Christian faith?
Later on, when I prayed about the possibility of marriage, God answered that prayer clearly too. It’s not that my husband and I never disagree, or that we do not get on each other’s nerves periodically, but married life is so much simpler when you know that this is the person that God led you to.
With that in mind, we know God will see us through whatever difficulties we face in the future.
Since I had not done such a great job of choosing relationships on my own, I decided to let God choose the next one.
