After he left, I ran to my bedroom and screamed.
Will God Tell You Who to Marry?
A tornado of disappointment ripped through the landscape of my heart leaving a wasteland of questions I could not answer. Years later, after the rain cleared and the debris settled, God gently pointed to my heart and showed me that my desire for a mate was greater than my desire for Him. I want to give you a hope outside of your desire to have a husband.
Child, just surrender it to Me. I want to give you Myself. From then on, God began to show me the joy I can have in Him while I wait for a husband. He also revealed some of the lies I believed that kept me trapped in a place of emotional pain and depression after my heart was broken.

Never married and 40, she was tired of praying and waiting and waiting and waiting, but most of all, she was convinced that her life was somehow less-than. Boy, could I relate! Believing that same lie is what made me feel like God had betrayed me. I want to encourage you that God knows you and knows the man he has for you.

If your sincere prayer for a godly man includes godly characteristics, then you will know that he is the one if he possesses them or the fruit in his life shows that he is working towards them. Remember that God has beautifully and wonderfully created each one of us. He knows exactly who is right for you and will send them when the time is right. He has a similar desire for God and encourages you to pursue Christ. He has the same morals and values, that include a godly lifestyle in which he puts God first. You will know that your relationship glorifies God if your conversations and activities honor God with your body , mind, and soul.
But I believe you have to drop more than just your cosmetic make-up. Namely the walls around your heart. Because the best relationships are the ones where you feel completely comfortable being vulnerable! Sometimes sharing our deepest secrets and biggest flaws can be a challenge, because we are scared they might not like it and leave, or simply because we are ashamed of them. However, the right one will make you feel good about yourself and love you just the way you are.

So if you can confide in him and love seeing yourself through his eyes, then he might just be the one that God has for you. Before he makes plans with his friends for the week, he ensures that you get to spend time with each other too. I know this might sound cheesy, but the best relationships are the ones where the couple considers each other as best friends.
You enjoy spending time together, you enjoy talking for hours and you can laugh about the same things. Fact is every relationship, no matter if romantic or not, should add to your life and not subtract from it. And the man you want to spend the rest of your life with should be a safe haven for your thoughts, your dreams, and your journey. Does he have your back when life is hard? Does He boost your confidence when you feel like giving up? But trust has to be earned and only given after he showed you that he is trustworthy. Is he open and communicative or closed up and hard to read? In a thriving relationship, your fears and doubts will vanish the more time you spend together.
You will start to trust him, not just in the relationship but with your life, goals, and future. The man you commit to should be a good leader that you enjoy following. Too often we think respecting someone only refers to the way we speak to them. However, in relationships respect is part of the foundation you build on and can make or break it.
Does he respect your time and gives you his uninterrupted attention when you are together or is he preoccupied with work and other things? If your first reflex is to protect him by giving a poor excuse as to why he answers his text messages while he is with you, then this is a good indication that something is wrong.
Yes, we are all busy nowadays, but spending quality time with each other is important and a choice you have to make. So ask yourself is he choosing to be present? Another way to see if he respects you is in conversations. Is he repeatedly cutting you off when you are discussing something?
Or does he value your opinion and appreciate your point of view?

Remember, that being in a relationship means the two of you are merging two completely different families, backgrounds, and experiences. That means you will run into situations where one of you is wrongly perceived. And only if the two of you can stick up for each other, your relationship can survive.
Let Him Find and Pursue You
Being loyal is a form of respect that shows you that he has your back even if it means he has to oppose people he cherishes. It can be hard to determine if he is the one God has for you, but this list should help you. Do you agree this is How to know he is the one? Or would you add more signs that he is the one to the list? Very encouraging blog!! I am also a single Christian and I am a bit older than you. The Bible calls us to not be unequally yoked with unbelievers in 2 Corinthians Where are you to go?
How are you going to invest in building the kingdom of God? A godly woman does not want to marry a lazy man. She wants to marry a hard worker whom she can respect. He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. Take ownership and pride in your work and work hard. Strive to become the best at what you do. Instead, develop appropriate friendships with Christian women in the context of service in the church. A godly woman wants to first see your godly character on display before she wants to trust you emotionally and romantically in a serious relationship.
Young men will often meet a pretty girl and immediately begin to think about asking her out—without first knowing anything about her character or whether or not she is a follower of Christ. Before you ask a girl out you should know something of her character and her godliness. See number 5. You will most likely meet a godly girl at church or serving at another Christian organization or institution. They have seen more, experienced more, and most importantly have walked with God longer than you have.
They will be able to invest in your life and impart wisdom to you in ways that your peers cannot. Also, more often than not, older, godly men are married to older, godly women, who know and are mentoring young, godly women. See where I am going with this? Long story short, pursue relationships with older, wiser men. Where do you meet these men? Got back to step number 5, and join a church!
