The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. A Song of Ascents. I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord , who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. So that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman. Has he not spoken through us also? Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth. And the Lord came down in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the tent and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forward.
Before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been created in all the earth or in any nation. And all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord , for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you. Behold, I will drive out before you the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Take care, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land to which you go, lest it become a snare in your midst. You shall tear down their altars and break their pillars and cut down their Asherim for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord , whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God , And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.
How can we know the way? Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment. A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion. When wickedness comes, contempt comes also, and with dishonor comes disgrace. Include her in your activities, but try not to center on the family or relationship she doesn't have, but rather emphasize those areas where God is allowing her to do things you aren't able to and how she is being used to impact others.
I, like many singles, am truly grateful for the phone calls, dinners, outings with other's families, concern and love shown to me by my married friends. However, each person married or not, must find their own peace and joy. No one can provide it nor does it come in an earthly relationship. The same way you would encourage anyone who has desired for something, someone, anything in his or her life—no matter the time period. You listen, you offer a shoulder to cry on, you pray with and for them Galatians 6: You walk with them through their sadness and suffering, pointing them to the Father and toward his timing and plans for all of our lives.
We don't always understand his higher ways, but we do understand that he is sovereign and causes all things to work together for his good Romans 8: This is the hope that we cling to and all that you or your friend or any of us can do in trying to understand different mystifying situations in each other's lives. I'm a year-old male. I have a female friend the same age who doesn't believe you have to date someone to get to know them.
She believes God will reveal to her the man she's to marry at the right time. Not quite knowing how to ask out someone like this, I asked if she wanted to court—she said, "Well let's go out! Because of her full calendar I'm always hesitant to call her, but when we do talk we have good conversations. Another female friend of mine says it could take two to three months for her to decide whether or not she actually wants to date.
How do I handle this nebulous, "friends stage"? I have to agree with your friend, you don't have to "date" someone to get to know them. You can learn a lot about a person by being around, listening, observing and seeing how they interact in different situations. Try not to get caught up in the "terminology" of whether or not you are "dating. Continue to ask her out, leave her messages, and let her know how serious you are about spending time with her. She may just have a full schedule because she hasn't had anyone in her life she was interested in enough to change it for or maybe she wants to see if you will pursue her.
Are you all in? Or are you only mildly interested and invested? It sounds to me like you are more than mildly interested in pursuing a serious relationship and aren't letting her "schedule" or fluctuating point of view when it comes to more-than-friends relationships sway your intentions up until this point. However, it also sounds like you might be concerned that she is not as interested in you as you are in her—or you might not have sent in your question for us to answer.
If this is the case, then I would suggest slowing down a bit and letting your female friend have her two to three months of decision time to figure things out on her own.
