Our dating place
The series generated hundreds of comments from readers who found themselves in a similar place.Two and a half years later, my life has changed: In the course of nine months, I began dating, became engaged to and married the man I believe God chose for me.), it is exciting to know that God established romance and celebrates it.Romantic love may appear in ways unanticipated, but at its source it flows from God's character.
At the time, I was single and well on my way to my 30th birthday.
As you can see, the second romantic scenario contains far more substance than the first.
I recently saw a video about Iraqi believers receiving the Bible in their own language for the first time.
Something I have found helpful is to look at relationships through the filter of the same biblical worldview that colors other areas of my life. While intentionality is good (and I'll address this more in depth in a future blog), part of me is sad that I've developed such low expectations for romance.
For example, Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Whether I lean toward total sovereignty or free will, this is a practical step. I believe this is, in part, due to a misunderstanding of God.
Moments after creation, God takes a personal interest in Adam's lonely state.
