 Leading to marriage (Prayer Request)

Dear believers,

I've written today...to seek prayer over a wonderful matter!

I don't know how to go about explaining how this all began...But I desire to be as open and honest as possible...

I received a message from a dear sister in the Lord, a little while ago...It was received in the month of march, in my sermonindex inbox, in regards to a thread that I had previously posted in january of this year...and I feel that I've been blessed with a really wonderful measure of grace through this fellowship...
We had no intentions of any kind. Only that we would be an encouragement to one another through the Word...But we both feel now that we are being led towards one another...and we want to go about it properly...To honor the Lord.

We've also promised not to exchange photographs of each other...For if this should truly be something that's meant to be? Then we desire to trust God in leading us in all this.

This is our request...Please pray for us in this!

James 1:4: But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

 Re:

What a precious testimony. Thank you for sharing it. How wonderful it would be if every marriage relationship started out this way.

I am praying for you two! :-)

Hi you two,

May the Lord grant you wisdom and patience 8-)

Have you listened to any of Paul Washer's talks around the topic of God-glorifying courtship? If not, I'll find the title I have in mind, and post the link here - and pray, as you have requested.

Hi Holly,

Please accept my apologies for having missed your post until today.

There are actually several messages which cover similar ground in more or less detail, and I am not sure how all of them are titled.

In that the one I'm linking to was delivered in three short sessions, to young people, it is pitched with a certain amount of humour, but not too much for such a serious subject.

Paul Washer knows he is giving a counter-cultural message, so he eases towards his advice, after gently undermining what he knows his listeners will have taken for granted as acceptable behaviour.

[url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?lid=13918]Dating Sermon[/url]

I've heard Paul Washer say that when he followed his own advice, his now wife's father refused him permission to marry his daughter, to which he submitted, and prayed, until eventually her father changed his mind, because of his honouring behaviour towards [u]him[/u].

God bless you both.

Oh the blessedness of watching the Master sculpt that which He has given to be.

 Re:

blessed be the name of the Lord.

this relationship is now "just friends". just wanted to post and say thank you all for your love and prayers. may God be glorified in cleaning us of idols; He is faithful.

please pray for me and for josh. it's painful for both of us.

God has been kind to allow me to be part of a wonderful prayer group here, and i covet your prayers that God would send the same for josh.

thank you.

love you all very much.

 Re:

One has to wonder about the pain. There must be a bonding that takes place even before a marriage - where the two begin to become one. This must also apply to friendships to some extent for even there we find pain if two are separated.

Holding you both in prayer.
