Ladies, would you trust your level of discernment, if you had to choose a spouse right at this moment?
^^^Thank you so much for sharing @Lucia.
I've fallen prey to predatory men in the past, they were all non-believers. It's normal that I attracted them because I was lukewarm myself. They used me for physical actions, money and sharing parts of my mind that should only be available to my Isaac. The tests become harder as we get older, but that's because God wants to see if we maintain that childlike faith and live up to the expectations He has placed on our love life. Let's continue to share some more tips.
I feel the same way in the sense that I keep getting tempted by all these men especially at my job. I work with a large firm so it's a lot of people and "potential".Yes you’re right.... It’s a heart issue. That’s the same thing the Holy Spirit revealed to me in prayer.
Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
I keep getting certain lessons over and over because I don’t listen to God. I try to take the reigns and do it all myself and then I end up falling. I have to conquer this lesson right here because I’m tiiiiied of it so tired.
@bolded that’s just disgusting really IM disgusted for YOU why is he even trying you when he’s getting married. What’s the point if marrying her then?I feel the same way in the sense that I keep getting tempted by all these men especially at my job.

This last dude who I thought was cute and interested in getting to know him because we never really had long conversations but enough to peak my interest. So dude gives me his number and I'm low key excited because I thought there was potential. Then one of my coworkers tells me he has a fiance Mind you he told me he was single!
Praise Jesus I didn't fall but it's annoying because I'm tired of dealing with these types of situations. I cried the other night not because of a guy but just being so irritated with meeting men who aren't it. All the while I'm still single. I been single for 4 years and for the most part I was happy in Christ just focused on Him. Now to be honest I'm tired of doing life alone. I want to get married. The older you get the harder it does get. It's really no joke. I'm in constant prayer for The Lord to keep me cause I don't know how much longer I can deal.
Yes! At the bold points and everything you mentioned.@bolded that’s just disgusting really IM disgusted for YOU why is he even trying you when he’s getting married. What’s the point if marrying her then?
I’m finding that this is a “strange” time where I feel I’m in a good peaceful place with God the enemy is just trying to bait me with all his old bag of tricks to see if I’ll fall for it again. But also God is showing me, you all of us out here single, virtuous for the long haul, that most of these married women and engaged women aren’t getting any prizes just cause they got to the altar before we did, they’re marrying Ishmaels left and right and frankly they can have them- all of them.
Look at your testimony this guy was attractive professional man seems to have his basics together career wise but interiorly a very carnal man with a lustful and polygamous/polyamourous, macho- man, David/Solomon spirit thats on him. He’s ENGAGED to be married to some woman who thinks he’s the next big thing since sliced bread. Just think about what she’s really getting?
Don’t think that just cause he gets married somehow he’ll change and be a faithful husband he has to do the work make that change with Jesus.
Look in my case he’s already married and running around actively pursuing single women, does his wife know who’s in the bed with her every night?
True and I'm doing that and have been for a while now. I serve in my church and other ministries and continue to seek Him. I honestly think for me its His timing. I can't force it.Holy Spirit just placed on my heart that during this waiting period as singles we should be seeking, serving, and submitting to Him.
I’ve been waiting but quite frankly that is all I’ve been doing.
You don’t want a “boo” every other guy off the street can be a boo don’t let all that talk get to you focus on you and Jesus, get out and do things you’re passionate about new things you’d like to try, you’ll meet new people and widen your acquaintance circle, you want a godly husband believe that Gods promises always come happen.How's everyone doing? Lately I've been finding solace in the thought that, in 7 years I'll be old enough to date a man in his early 50s. Hoping I'm one of those women who finds love later on in life.
Was at my niece's birthday this weekend and my family members started talking about relationships and mentioning everyone that's booed up. Made me understand why the Bible often refers to infertile women as 'deserted'.
Thanks for the reminder! There's a Singles' Retreat I'll be attending in about a week, after that I'll be going to the capital city, to an exhibit on Still Life art. Even married folks in the church are encouraging me to go out and L-I-V-E!You don’t want a “boo” every other guy off the street can be a boo don’t let all that talk get to you focus on you and Jesus, get out and do things you’re passionate about new things you’d like to try, you’ll meet new people and widen your acquaintance circle, you want a godly husband believe that Gods promises always come happen.
Very sorry to read this. Don't know what your particular situation is, but when I feel like that, it's usually because I'm trying to live up to someone else's idea/expectation of what it means to be 'fulfilled'. When I define it for myself and live it out, I feel much better in my own skin.From the outside, people think I live a fulfilling life. What they don’t know is that these are all desperate attempts to get rid of this constant feeling of emptiness.
Another thing to do is to review yourself especially your childhood and teens see if you may be repeating an unhealthy patten or have some negative recording playing in your head that you subconsciously believe that is attracting these unavailable men. You’ll have to pay close attention to your thoughts and what you say. Like how some people make a little mistake like wrong spelling and then out loud call themselves stupid, that’s a negative track already playing in their head and they are cursing themselves with it lol the time and it came from someone or something.Yes! At the bold points and everything you mentioned.
When I heard he was engaged I truly felt sorry for this woman. I'm sure she's sitting back happily thinking she's about to get married to this "great guy" and he's at work flirting with other women smh.
The even sadder part of it is, I know I'm not the first or the last. I won't ever understand why men try and start new relationships or "situationships" while they are currently with someone. It's purely selfish because they could care less who they hurt in the process. Why are you still with that person if you're so unhappy??? Stay single if you want to date around. People like to have their cake and eat it too.
I'm so over men like this. I'm trying not to get the point where I feel like all men are like that. I know there has to be some good ones out there but it seems like they're far and few.
