Is This God's Best??????


This year has been quite a year.
I have experienced things that have been very hard, one that I really had no idea how it came to pass. I've been praying alot, and thinking about this...

This year a young man asked to court me, it was a very hard thing in my life.
My heart was really somewhere else...
It was really hard for me when a very nice young man asked to court me, I was really very sad...He was a friend and a good christian guy, he even had the respect and honor of going to my daddy, But I couldn't understand why he wanted to go into a courtship with me.
This kinda situation requires alot of prayer, when you have to determine God's best..from the Devil's best. The devil's best may not be a wicked unsaved person, it's just not God's best.

The Devil wants to send someone or something to distract you from God's will...
When you know in your heart that this is not the one...why go into a relationship, I did have other people give me advice during this time, But the best advice is to follow God... and your God given authority and help, your parents! Sometimes they can see things that you could be blinded in, or maybe they know how to handle certain things. I would never go into a courtship without their approval!
I did cry because I didn't want to do something wrong and
I didn't know how this guy could have fallen for me.
I'm praying that the Lord will help me...
I read a book awhile back, about a Divine Betrothal...in the book, the girl prayed for the Lord to send her the one man that He specifically made for her...that like Rebekah and Isaac the Lord would bring both of them together and they would both know that only God could have done this.
That's what I'm praying for, me and Jennifer were talking the other day about this...being 18 and 23 we talk about this alot. When we talk we often say something about Bible college...Because that's what girls go to Bible college around here for, they'll tell you that...because if you want to marry a good Godly man where do you find him...Bible college!!!
I'm praying for my man...But I want to know that God gave me that man, sure it would be alot easier to go off have fun...and grab me a senior on the way out! But I believe the Lord will send that man that he made for me, I believe that it's the Lord's will for me to get married and have a family...that is my desire, if the Lord changes that... then I'll obey him.
Please pray for me...
Please pray that I am making the right decision concerning courtship...and pray that the Man that God has given me will cross my path, if he has not already!

I appreciate the courage it must have taken to write this post. It was good for me to get another perspective and see that courtship isn't always a bed of roses. Even though I am almost 19, I do not know even one eligible young man, so it is easy for me to think that others have it better than I do. I need to remind myself that God will bring my husband in HIS timing, not mine. Thanks for posting, and I will be praying for you.

Rebekah,
I could tell that post was from your heart and it was very touching. It was a wonderfull reminder that we all need to wait on God's timing in these situations that we all face. Even though I don't know you I still know that you are my sister in Christ. I don't think I can really console you, but I will be praying for you. :)
