Why Are We Not Together?

July 25, 2013

 

I love you

 

Q: Dear Duke,

6 years ago, I met a guy through Facebook. He ticked the right boxes when it came to my standards (God-fearing, kind, leadership, etc.)

 

He also ticked the right boxes when it came to my preference too (dark complexion, slim build, had Suave in bucket loads, etc.). I don’t know for how long I had prayed God would send him my way.

 

Our relationship started off on the wrong footing (1 night stand), which led to both of us being wrecked with guilt and regret for weeks to come. I thought it was over. (more…)

I’m Going To Meet The 1 Tomorrow!

Important

 

Although we live in time, we must understand that God does not live in time. He proceeded time, and He is beyond time.

 

If you desire to marry, you would probably love to meet the 1 for you tomorrow.

 

Well, that’s exactly what will happen. You will meet them tomorrow.

 

The reason is for the simple fact that God’s time is not our time.

 

Scripture even tells us, “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8 NKJV).

 

That simply means that what we see as a long time was just 1 day to God. (more…)
