Sometimes people fall in love and but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are to marry. If you are a certain age, I’m sure you can look back and see an old love that you thought for sure you would end up with, but in the end you did not. That’s because love does not always translate into marriage.
I believe in love, but I believe in love and the will of God has well. They both go hand in hand. Once you fall in love with someone you must make certain that is who God really has for you to spend the rest of you life with.
Ideally that should happen ahead of time because it makes it a lot easier to let go, but life is not always like that. Sometimes you fall in love and then you have to go through the pain of letting that love go.
A friend of mine is going through that right now. In her case, God is making it easy for her because she sees that this relationship is becoming detrimental to her and even though it’s hard she is ready to do it.
Life is not perfect. It’s not easy to let go. If that is what God is requiring you to do by God’s grace He will give you the strength to let go.
New International Version (NIV)
1Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.
2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
