I know this discussion is a year old, but I was so happy to find a place where this is being talked about. I am recently divorced, after being married for 31 years. I really appreciate all of your answers and thank God for the sisterhood. God Bless You All!
I'm posting a year later but this has been my hearts cry for a while. I agree with what has already been said and have a testimony about moving ahead of God. I was 38, single, no kids, working in ministry strong and waiting on God for my mate but He seemed to be taking too long (in my eyes). It had been years since I dated so the thought of jumping out in the dating world was nowhere on my mind, but our words are powerful and I began to speak of how lonely I was and how I wanted the companionship and I got just what I spoke. A relationship from hell (covered up as a believer), he treated me like a queen and perused me hard all to find out he was a liar and a cheater……. didn't find this out until I was pregnant at the age of 40. My daughter is the best thing that has ever happened to me but her father is the worst. It is so important who we connect ourselves with; when we are anxious we become open prey to the enemy. The Bible tells us to be anxious for nothing but in prayer and supplications let our request be made known unto God. I hope this blesses someone and encourage those waiting to keep our eyes and focus on Christ, let Him be that husband we so desire.
I am also a single minister in Nothern California. Sometimes the online dating services are okay, if you are clear about who you are and what you're hoping for. I research them on the internet BEFORE moving forward. God Bless You!!
