If youre dating someone are you still single

Creative Commons, doistrakh Her email landed in my inbox just after 2am. I mean her husband is perfect. How could I do all the right things and him bless her instead of me? You do the right thing and God blesses your friend who chose the wrong path. You chose a career in full-time ministry and it feels like God blesses everyone else except you.

We follow Jesus and the path is wrecked with heartbreak. Do you even care? How could you let this happen? Is He even in control?

For me, I moved to China to be a missionary and expected God to protect me from what I considered worst-case-scenario. He spared my friends, but allowed me to go through something extraordinarily difficult. In theory, I rejected this prosperity Gospel, but my frustration with God displayed otherwise. I was, and still often am, entitled. I love to remind women that God is a good Dad because that truth took me more than a decade to realize. Does He know what is best? Does He even have a plan? Does He care about you.

But is blind trust enough? Recently, I talked with a woman who described this monumental day in her faith journey. She was convinced she was dirty and could never be redeemed because of her relationship decisions.

Take a minute to let that soak in—Dad says we are his delight, his beloved. But when we open our eyes to the grand story happening all around us, we see the astounding beauty that leaves us speechless. God delights in me. He delights in you.

Not an obligatory love, but a love that delights in who you are. If you liked this post, you may also like:
