I Fell In Love 8 Months Ago

I fell in love with a man 8 months ago. I realized that he wasn't in love with me and I set him free this morning. I want to be true to what God wants. He wants to stay friends, but I don't trust myself. I hope I did the right thing. Any sciptures or helpful words? I would love to hear.

Kathy::An Indecisive Man is a ditherer and not bold enough to make things Happen.If he really loved you he would not have let you slip through His fingers.If you had many disagreements then it was a wise Decision.

I speak from experience. I loved a woman, but she did not return my love. she waited some time before tellling my, by which time I had built up so many hopes. If we remained friends (as she suggested) I would constantly be torturing myself with what (in my mind) could have been. better to break completely than have that continuing pain.

Not only did she set the bird free, but Kathy flew the coop along time ago. :-}

Wow how brave and what a wonderful thing to say you want to be true to what God wants. He will heal your heart and send you the right person. Keep doing the right thing.

You are precious in God's sight. He knows your need, desires and wants.God wants you to have the best from Him. Don't be in a hurry but wait upon the Lord. He will direct your path straight as you seek Him first in your life. Setting a person free is just a good thing to do.No feeling guilty nor forced. Trust God He has His best prepared for you. Just wait.

You did a wonderful thing. You set him free so that God could bring the one who is just right to you. God knows who will be the perfect husband for you. Read Romans 8:28!

Kathy, for your maker is your Husband, the Lord of Hosts is His name. God says in Jeremiah, I will marry you to be, I will betroth you to me. Make Jesus your all in all. Fall in love with Jesus and Father God will bless you beyond what you can ever imagine. Develop that deep deep fellowship with Jesus and you won't regret it.

You can be friends, but if you really don't trust yourself its better to move him out of your life

I hooked up with a man and tried to mold him into a Christian. No deal. The "let's be friends" keeps you pining over a lie. They move on, live it up while you sit home. Two wives, 3 kids later and he's still chasing skirts. So I waited on God - 12 years. I'm glad I did, I turned to God, found Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I'm married to a Godly man with integrity, but God is number one on my list. I learned with hard knocks not to place a human above God.

Isaiah 43:2 When u pass through deep waters, I will be with u; ur troubles will not overwhelm u. When u pass through fire, u will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. v5 Do not be afraid - I am with u!

Just when u think u have explored the depths of life, along comes another situation and then u realise u've only been playing along the shore.

If you truly love him, it will be better to make a clean break. I loved a woman more than I thought was possible. We travelled to Hawaii to be married. She couldn't go through with it and soon thereafter broke off all contact. She has been in my thoughts and dreams every day and night for the past two and a half years. I promised to love her always and I do and will, even though she will never come back. And that is perhaps how it should be.

Your are smart.It's just about impossible just to stay friends. If he finds someone else, you'd be "history". While I can't think of any scripture for this particular situation, except you are not to be unequally yoked, and it appears you have reached this conclusion. You have chosen the best mode of operation - just stay away from all contact in any form.
