My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year. We’ve been though tough times with his parents’ divorce and other things from his past, and he’s working on his relationship with God. But recently I’ve felt… disinterested? I know in relationships with anybody there will be times when you don’t really like the person, but how do I know if it’s just that, just a dry spell, or if I’m falling out of love? I’m praying about this but I was hoping for some advice.

Well, neither of us were strong Christians when we met, but we’re currently both working on our relationships with God. What I’m asking God is when do I be patient with my boyfriend and hope things will work themselves out, or when do I realize that’s never going to happen and end it? Gotta keep trusting God on that one 🙂 Thank you for your input! 🙂

So glad to hear you are both working on strengthening your relationship with God! That’s a tough question though, I’m going through something similar with the guy I like, wondering if I’m supposed to be patient and wait on him or let it go. But you’re absolutely right! All we can do is trust God. Something my little cousin told me when talking about art really stuck out to me, she was trying to tell me about an idea she had for an art project but couldn’t explain it will, she said, “well, only the artist can know the full meaning behind the picture”. When she said that it helped me to realize that God sees the full picture, he has filled in the details and has a beautiful plan in mind. We don’t have to worry about filling in the details, we just need to trust God and give Him the “pen” to create our story, we just need to be ready to listen and take action when He calls us to it. (Who knew a 8 year old could be so deep! Haha) That line was probably more for me than you;) I hope that it was encouraging in some way though!:) I will be praying that God will paint a beautiful “picture” for you!:)

Out of the mouths of babes 🙂 Amazing how something so simple and innocent can mean so much!
