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.
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).
I began to see in Matt several of those “husband material traits” that I had been searching for with other guys.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.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.I truly wanted to do what I felt was God’s will, but I also really didn’t want to give up the relationship.
