So there’s this guy. I noticed that he liked me a while back. I didn’t like him until I started seeing “fruits of the spirit” from him. He’s taken out the church trash without being asked, he’s extremely respectful to everyone (especially adults) and he really seems like he loves the Lord! All while still being extremely humble! I’ve hardly actually talked to him because we’re both really shy and I prefer to take things slowly and let God orchestrate, but he’s definitely shown signs of interest. Every time I start liking a guy I pray that God would take my feelings away if it isn’t meant to end in a marriage that is glorifying to Him (I realize this sounds a bit over the top but I don’t want to waste time and emotions on something that will lead to heart ache. Plus God has answered and taken away my feelings for guys before) So here I am, still liking him. I feel like God has given me signs through bible verses, articles, answered prayers and complete faith and peace that something will happen and more. Sounds perfect right? Wrong! Now my best friend likes him, and I think he might like both of us… we’ve both noticed him staring at us a lot and some people have been joking about setting them up. I had so much peace and confidence that it “was meant to be” now I’m really worried and not sure which I’m more sad about; my friend liking him, or him possibly liking my friend. (btw she has known for a long time that I like him) Now I almost don’t want to like him anymore and I’ve pleaded with God to take my feelings away if it’s not meant to be. Is God telling me to wait on this guy? It seems kinda hopeless since my friend is always the one to get flirted with and she could probably get any guy she wants etc. In fact, this has been the first time that a guy I like actually likes me back. Am I being bias? I truly want God’s will for my life. I’ve read your article on God speaking to us and I really feel like He has but I’m afraid it’s too good to be true and it’s just me making all this stuff up. I’m just a mixed bag of emotions right now!!

Hey, Meag097! First off, I wanna say that I can totally relate to you girl!! I’m soooo glad to hear that you ran to God first instead of running away of even running ahead of things. Good for you!
That’s really amazing that you truly think that God is speaking to you about this guy. I do t have patience so God likes to make me wait on Him 🙂 I think, if everything aligns up with scripture, and God has revealed it to you in your heart, then it’s ok to go and believe it. And know that just because someone else likes him, and maybe even he likes someone else, that doesn’t mean you two won’t be together.
As for your friend liking him, don’t be mad at her. If she pursues a relationship with him while knowing you like him, then I don’t know if she was a good friend to begin with. Don’t go dwelling on what isn’t true, girl. You don’t know if Mr. Awesome really likes you and the other girl. I mean, maybe you can tell. But personally, I think many guys in my youth group are cute. But there’s only one that I want to be with 🙂
I hope I’ve encouraged you! 🙂 Keep relying on the Lord!

P.S. That last paragraph really sounded like I didn’t believe Mr. Awesome liked you. Let me clarify…I totally believe he likes you!

Thanks so much CinnamonCow16 !;) I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that he doesn’t like her in that way (based on the last few get – togethers) and I think my friend has kinda backed away. I wouldn’t be surprised if she does like him because I honestly don’t see how anyone wouldn’t, but I think she respects our friendship enough to not pursue it farther. I’m not 100% sure he likes me but there have definitely been small signs that add up. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be (and I really hope it’s meant to be! lol;). I was pretty much an emotional wreck when I wrote this and I think I was way over analyzing things. Thanks so much for your encouragement and care!! Means a lot!!
