Welcome Debbie!

It's so nice to have you with us. Congratulations on your new walk with Christ! I think that's awesome!

Hon, I say pray about the situation continuously. I'll be praying for you as well. God has never left me hanging on anything that I have brought to him in prayer. He will give you clear direction.

Your sister in Christ,


Robin

There is no straight answer to that question I'm afraid but the answers always comes just the same. I've woke up with a clear decicion in my head, I've been compelled to read a specific scripture and found the answer I was seeking, sometimes a friend will say something that gives you the direction but it will be clear to you. There is a story of a man stranded on the roof top with flood water quickly rising, crying out to God in prayer begging to saved. A boat comes by and tells the man to climb in but the man says no, he is waiting for God to save him so the boat goes on. The water is nearly to the man's knees and he is still crying out to God to save him when a helicopter comes along and drops a ladder for him to climb but he will not grab hold. They keep telling him to grab hold but he yells that he is waiting on God to save him so the helicopter moves on. Before long, the water overtakes the man and he drowns. When he gets to heaven, he asks God why he didn't answer his prayers and save him. God replies "I sent you a boat and a helicopter but you chose not to be saved." Sometimes the answers to our prayers are sent in a different form than anticipated. The verse "Be still and know that I am God" comes to mind. Be vigilant in prayer and be "listening" for God's answer in your life. It will come.

Your sister in Christ,

I can say from experience, the issues before your marriage will get worse in your marriage.

You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.
