My girlfriend and I broke up this evening. She was a devout Baptist who decided, in part because of our talks and Mass visits, to become Catholic, and she just started RCIA classes a few weeks ago. But she feels an enormous amount of pressure from her parents, who are very anti-Catholic, and doesn’t think that they will take her seriously if she tells them we’re converting while we’re still together. We also have a lot of differences in our long-term goals and values. So we’ve decided to break up, at least for now.
Please pray that I will be able to bear this cross and trust that in the end, God will deliver me to the right person at the right place at the right time. I keep reading Romans 8:26-28, but I can’t seem to trust that this will work out for the best. I don’t know where I will turn with the little successes and failures of life right now, and I’m very worried that it will take forever (or never) to find someone else to date because of where I live and how seriously I take my faith. Being alone is really scary to me, and I need all the help I can get to accept this cross, move on, and be the person God wants me to be so that I can find the person He wants me to be with.
