Trusting god with dating
What do you believe is my involvement and what is His contribution to bringing people together?People say "God brought us together," but did He really, or was it more that those two persons met because they are at the same walk of life — hopefully — spiritually, emotionally, and relationally?It's worth quoting the whole thing: Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?Jesus doesn't include anxiety over whom we will marry, but we get the point: God has it under control — from every atom to every universe — He made it; He knows it; and His love for it is steadfast and greater even than life itself, and having a revelation of that dissolves the anxiety.
In fact, God’s name is never mentioned in the Megillat Esther.My primary focus never leaves Him as He brings these things into my life.I understand them for what they are, gifts from His hand, or tools in His hand, or both — all designed for what?Maybe just prayer and quiet seeking is what I need. After spending many years trying to figure out all the answers, at some point I began to realize that there are some questions I just won't know the answers to on this side of heaven. I've learned to rejoice in these mysteries, rather than fret over them.They are part of what makes God the I Am, and me the creature, and why I can cry out to Him in awe and wonder as David did in Psalm 139, "Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it." Jesus gives us some guidance in this area, at least in terms of our trusting that God is watching over us with perfect care, a billion times more than the best parent ever could, with love so strong that we cannot even comprehend, and with nothing in mind for us but our eternal good and His glory and pleasure.
