Is she from God?


#1

Hi thank you for listening!

I am dating this girl I really like. Im 21 she is 19. so far it feels like God has been doing a lot of work to put us together as she didn’t want a boyfriend, she just wanted to be friends.

Now we are together, and honestly I don’t know how because I screw up a lot, I’m not very good with relationships…

How do i know if she is from God?
Because I have dated other girls before and got rejected and it was painful so I don’t want anymore games I really want to find my vocation. So far I think it is marriage…

Are there signs I should be looking for to know if she is the one sent from God?

Another thing a priest told me is that God allows girls to reject me or go with another boy to humble me as I am a proud person…I accept the previous rejections and girls picking other guys over me but I don’t know what I would do if it happens with this girl, because I like her very much…

this scared me a lot as I want to be humble but i don’t want to be depressed again…

Pray for your relationship and for her. As long as she does not turn you away from God or encourage you into a sinful lifestyle then I see no harm .
Thank God in prayer that you are together and let Jesus guide you both in your journey.

hi George.

on issues like guidance towards the future and your vocation, you should not ask just any priest or person for advice… rather I recommend you get a SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR who will spiritually accompany you in your quest as well as follow your progress. I have personally experienced several priests giving contradictory and even misleading recommendations on the same issue. so my advice is open your ears and your heart to a specific spiritual director.

Everyone on earth is from God.

Please don’t over analyse and stress yourself out too much. I know it’s easier said than done. If you really like her and want things to work out, enjoy each others company, relax and be truthful. Honesty is very important in a relationship.

We all suffer from ‘pride’ from time to time. If your Priest has pointed it out. Perhaps it’s something to work on. Don’t worry I suffer from this too. In an effort to combat my pride I went and volunteered to work with the homeless and see Christ in the faces of all the homeless. I realised how lucky I am by accident of birth, opportunities and circumstance. Humility is something we all need to work on but it must be a conscious and concerted effort.

I hope things work out for you two. :wink:

Blessings and prayers ascending for you.
