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.Did those caring, sensitive, funny, godly men really exist?For instance, one guy that I dated was a very nice guy.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.
It wasn’t until I was fully ready to obey God’s leading, that the answer came.
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.
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.
