Hi there! To make a long story short, for the past few months God showed me clearly the boy He wants me to marry to. We talked about it and he is sure that i am the girl for him too. Fact is, I am 18 and still a high-schooler, and he is 24, having his own job. He asked my dad for his permission to date with me two months ago and my father told him to wait for another 4-5 years, until I finish college, and stop talking to me or meeting whatsoever until then. We didn’t talk or meet purposely during these two months and we agreed that we want to respect my father’s decision and God’s plan for us and wait for now. My question is: how do I actually focus on my relationship with the Lord without thinking about this boy, and how do i keep myself balanced these years of waiting? Oh, and there’s another problem: he is baptist, and I am from the brethren. The differences of doctrine between our churches are quite big and I don’t really know what to do: I do not know if he is willing to leave his, and I am not sure I am willing to give up some of my Bible principles. So…?
