My son is currently experiencing frustrations and great distress in his dating situation. He likes to keep such things close and is reluctant to share details or ask for help, so I kept my response short and to the point…
“I feel your pain. It was not until I admitted (to myself and to God) that my disappointing dating approach was not working that I met my wonderful wife. She was literally an answer to prayer. God knows what we need and want even better than we do. It was only when I turned the process totally over to him that I found peace.”
Whether the problem is a marriage relationship, a family relationship or something else… When the problem seems unsolvable, God has the solution. He loves us, his children, and knows our hearts. God is the answer, if only we will relinquish control and turn it over to him.
“There is a way [our way] that seems right to a man, but the end result is death.” (Proverbs 14:12)
“We do not receive because we do not ask.” (Matthew 7:7-11)
“Give your anxieties over to God because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
