Being Closer With God

My boyfriend told me he is in a transition in his life that he needs to get closer to God and that he needs to be alone for a while to get back on track. What should I do?

Lets respect God! Unbelievers don't know what that means. We, God's people, respect God by using a cap G. There are many gods today worshiped by many people. Only one true God, respect Him....We distinguish all these other gods keep them separate by showing the world>>>GOD....JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONE TRUE GOD, CREATOR. The world curse Him. We honor Him. God.

More man made rules?
We respect God by obeying his laws not by placing a capital infrom of od.

However, I take offense to you saying And getting closer to God (you used a small g, I'll use a capital G) is not a better deal.

---Donna5535 on 6/29/10

Do not be offended by the small g. There is nothing in the bible that requires us to use a G when we say god. God is a man made rule.

And in the context of what we are speaking getting closer to god is truely not a better deal.
remember we are speaking n context.

A better deal is getting closer to god and keeping his loving relationship with the girl.

Precious one:

There is really nothing that you can do.

If your boyfriend is sincere, then you will have a good man on your hands sometime in the near future. If he is not sincere, then you should thank him for sparing you now. Better to know what kind of man he is now than 3 years after marriage.

Just curious, but where are you with the Lord? And, should the two of you cool things down a bit? Hitting things too hot and heavy can destroy a young romance. Perhaps your boyfriend senses this and wants to allow things to grow naturally and be centered spiritually.

Emma:

You give us no details on your relationship with your boyfriend and the most we can do is guess. You should pray FIRST before making any decisions.

If you are chaste and not betrothed, then you should move on yourself and chalk this up to not the right person or not the right time.

If you are not chaste, then you are bonded to him outside of marriage and in contradiction to God's Word. You should move on but the consequences of your diobedience will be your emotional pain.

If you are betrothed, you should go to his parents and plead your case to them. He has made a promise to you and is trying to break it.

Only you know what kind of guy he is..do you believe he is? and if so..let him..you will be so glad that you did..a man of God is the best thing a woman could ever have in a man!
---a_friend on 6/29/10


You people are foolish, evil in your hearts. Why do you accuse someone who wants to forego earthly pleasures to become closer to the Father? This women and this man has no commitment with each other as a married couple.

Is it wrong to give up worldly things (including marriage) to follow Jesus? If one is married, one must give up following Jesus for his time is spent taking care of the family. If one does not have ties to the world, he can spend 100% of his time following Jesus. Which would you prefer? (consider this as we are living in the end times).

And getting closer to god is not a better deal.
---francis on 6/27/10

francis, I agree he may be have another woman on the side because you don't leave someone you love to pursue God.

However, I take offense to you saying And getting closer to God (you used a small g, I'll use a capital G) is not a better deal.

Getting closer to God is a MUCH better deal than anyone can ever imagine!!! Haven't you ever experienced God? Liquid Love? His phenominal presence? There's Joy in the Presence of the Lord, not sorrow, not pain, not sickness, etc., so God is the BETTER deal - better than any deal I've ever made!

While what you say may be true, it's somewhat presumptuous to assume that it's necessarily true.
---StrongAxe on 6/25

LOL you and I both know it is over.

"it's not you, it's me, i need to get closer to God." sounds like dumping gently to me.

I am betting 10:1 he has another girl on the side.
men do not leave their mates unless they have a better deal.
And getting closer to god is not a better deal.
---francis on 6/27/10


Well, too many people today are messing with God. Some might know it but most do not know it....For goodness sakes don't interfere.
---catherine on 6/26/10




I agree with StrongAxe. We don't know the heart of this young man. He may feel he has let his fellowship with God take a back seat to other things and needs to recommit to spending more time with Him. Only through the vertical relationship with God can anyone love with the love of God horizontally. If this is the case, it will only be good for both of you in the long run. I would encourage you to do the same. If you stay together, your relationship with be more wonderful. If you do not, you can be assured the Father will take care of your heart.

Delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Delight yourself in Him and He will put His desires in there.
---Linda on 6/26/10


Do not be discouraged by these naysayers.

Be patient.

Meanwhile, if you are serious in your heart, prove to him that you are worthy of his love. Do the things so your husband/boyfriend praises you. Learn from many fine examples of wives in the bible. Do an online KJV bible search for the keywords "one another," "each other," "comfort," and "love" for when he sees you working hard for the Lord he will desire you to be his.

francis:

While what you say may be true, it's somewhat presumptuous to assume that it's necessarily true. Perhaps her boyfriend is actually being truthful? Without actually knowing him, or the situation (which is very hard to do from a single 40-word question), jumping to such a cynical conclusion is extremely premature.
---StrongAxe on 6/25/10


Take it from us men, he has dumped you
It's not you, it's ME
I need to get close to god LOL that is a good one, cheezy but good

10:1 he is getting closer to another female.
Men rarely leave their mates unless tey have a better deal.
---francis on 6/25/10


Emma, the truth is, what matters most is that he get closer to God whether that includes you or not. Who knows, maybe if you get closer to God too, you can see more clearly. If it means God is moving him away from you, then you can rest assured that He has someone better attuned to you in mind for you. Either way all you need to do is TRUST GOD.
---fay on 6/25/10


Emma,Francis is right, he's just dumping you gently!
When I told my wife I needed some "space" she locked me outside!

Take a hint!!
It is OVER, he is moving on.

There is absolutely no reason why he must push you away to get close to god.
So take a hint. It is over

This is the spiritual version of: IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME.
---francis on 6/25/10


Give him his space.

Do you think clinging to him at this point will make him love you more?

Remember: He's God's child before he was ever your boyfriend.
