Honesty is the best policy.

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Prov. 1:7). Happy the soul that has been awed by a view of God's majesty, that has had a vision of God's greatness, His holiness, His perfect righteousness, His power, His grace.

"Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him" (Psalm 103:13).

GetWell---I have never posted this question before, so I don't know what you are talking about.

You have posted many questions, all of them were sincere. You sincerely wanted our agreement, and we are sincerely responding back.

Sheryl---I don't think you have a right to question what another person decides what is right for them in their prayers. I don't know about you, but my prayers are between me and God.

Thank you so much for writing your prayer down--it will help me to have something concrete that I can focus on before prayer. I try so very hard to not let myself be consumed with this, but sometimes it just does. I don't want to misinterpret anything in this situation. Again, I only want the Lord's will, nothing is worth it, if it is not His will.

---thank you both again, for your responses. I've prayed and asked God that if he has someone else in mind for me, then he must completely remove these feelings for LB. Until then, I will assume this is a trial that I'm to learn something from....

Kay---no, I have not read the book. I will definitely check it out. Thanks.

Ever felt like you are in the process of learning something, but you don't really know what it is? I feel that way now. This connection with my friend is so powerful, that it's almost creepy. I pull away from it and resist the urge to pray about him. I KNOW that part is wrong. I just wish something would change.

----when you say you were in a "remote" relationship, what exactly do you mean? Were you apart? Or just not in a relationship? I feel like I was blind before & God opened up my eyes & heart to the fact that a man really could love me.

>If I could explain on here, how he entered my life, you'd all know why I am convinced, God sent him. Thanks for your prayers.

No, I'm not expecting Prince Charming to show up at my door. But, I look at it like if God wants me to be with someone HE will put that person and myself in the right place at the right time. I don't know what else to do and I am tired of wondering so I have decided to do nothing until God reveals someone or noone, as the case may be.

If I've chosen to wait on God to send me a mate, what do I do while waiting? I know I'm supposed to be obedient and live my life. I don't date anyway, but by waiting am I supposed to be looking for someone? Does God expect me to look?

What if God doesn't want me to ever get married? Will I know it? I never even wanted a relationship for the past 25 years and now its all I can think about. Surely, if he doesn't want me to be someone's wife, wouldn't he expect me to not have the longing to be one?

My honest opinion is that "love" is the driving force of our lives. Everyone is searching for it (if they don't already have it). Even when you get people together that are just friends, I think, because of God making us male and female, love/romance becomes a factor. I have never had a male friend that was just a "friend" (acquaintance, maybe). There was always some element of romance or flirtation in it.

---I realize that being married is what I always what I wanted. I've not thought about me for so long, that I've no single friends. They are all married---even the people at church are all married or attached.

--I thought if someone is waiting for God, they were supposed to leave it alone and let God take care of it. I have tried it on my own w/no luck and thought I was supposed to wait.

The answer is .... Fall in love with Jesus Christ and stop obsessing.

When I pray about this man, I do hear my voice and it is very clear with the message. Yet we are apart. I'm making myself sick thinking about it.

Have had no relationships for 25 years, prayed for someone,God sent me him. Now we're apart. I'm confused, does that mean it's not the right relationship? Why would God make me wait 25 years for someone, send me him, then take him away?

----may I ask how long have you been away from your male friend? For me it has been 3 months. I've gotten several signs after praying, but for some reason I keep wanting more validation---does that make sense?

This is a complete obsession with someone who's not really a Christian. You've asked us before and now it's time to fall in love with Jesus Christ.
God's answer is NO. If you keep praying for another year or so, you will have wasted your year. Stop obsessing over this person, let him go. It's not healthy for all parties concerned. Men really do run from women that are obsessed with them. They don't like it, even the unsaved ones.
