The second problem is that we try to be in control. Have you ever thought about what God thinks? He made the earth, he made the seas, he made your parents, brought them together through all their differences, and he made you. God has plans laid out from now till eternity. He knows what’s going to happen, he knows when it will happen, and he knows how it will happen.
God already knows who you will marry, so why are you so consumed with finding them at the right spot in the right time on the perfect day? I hate to break it to you, but your life isn’t a fairy tale. If you don’t walk around the streets shouting and proclaiming to be God and in control of everything, then don’t go about life trying to play God and control everything. He has it all laid out, so let him do it.
So there you have it: the two biggest problems about the way we date basically boil down to one thought. We let it consume us. When other people consume us they let us down, and when dating consumes us we make the wrong decisions because we are not in control of the universe. I truly believe that freedom comes in letting go. So stop trying, stop controlling, stop pretending. Give in and be yourself. Do you. Live your life with a passion directed towards the things you love, and a carefree spirit towards the things God hasn’t shown you yet. For everything under heaven, there is a season.
