This embarrassing situation could have been avoided if, instead of trying the "dating game," the young people had gotten down on their knees and prayed for guidance and direction from the Lord.
Just recently, as I thought of the blessing my husband, Bro.
As time progressed though, He revealed to me that I would marry one day and that He was grooming me to be a helpmeet suitable for some godly man.
Young lady, What kind of man are you looking for in a husband? And what kind of woman will a godly man be looking for in a wife? That is why it is so important for young people to completely consecrate themselves to the Lord while they are single.
It would not have been enough for me to just give up dating, but it was imperative to replace that void with the Lord.
I also told Him that if it was not His will that Id ever marry, that Id be willing to serve Him in whatever way He wanted, even if He wanted to send me as a single missionary to a hut in the middle of Africa, to be killed in a muslim country, or to just be a janitor in my local church.
