Question

Posted February 28, 2014

Dear Debi,

I understand that God told you who you were to marry when you were quite young. I find this very interesting but more so that Mike never knew for a long time. This I believe, is my situation! I am 22, a virgin, and never dated, but over sometime God has shown me the One He has prepared for me. However, the guy doesn’t yet know! We met on a mission trip and I am now back home. Before I left, he asked for my email and we are emailing as platonic friends and enjoying being able to encourage each other in the Lord. I have never let on at all what God has shown me but quietly “pondered these things,” like Mary. I am happy to wait for him as long as necessary.

So, with this as my background, my real questions are “How many other guys did you have to say “no” to? And how on earth did you explain to them that you were infact single, but NOT available?! Or was there simply no one else that appeared during your youth?

Any advice or knowledge would be grateful recieved! I’m really experiencing the peace of God which passes all understanding at this time and excited to see how this will pan out.

I love your books and CTBHM really changed my life and my thinking a few years ago! Thank you!

Jesus is Lord,

Lady Rohi

P.S. If it helps to paint a picture, my fellow is a Command/Visionary…much like your Mike I believe. 🙂

    My Moms story is amazing and very unique. What you might not know is that she prayed not that she would marry him but that God would use him. That God would keep him walking in truth and holiness. I believe that because God told her as a young girl to pray for him that he had angels watching out over him in those first years when he was in the thick of the ministry. He was around people that could have killed him and girls that could have flatter him with their eyes. He was working in the street dealing with all kinds of rough people. It was the Jesus movement if you have heard of it, an amazing time of people getting saved and turning to the Lord. She was his helper in the ministry there, she helped with the girls and he the men. He never looked twice at her as a wife. She even went on his dates with him. She was proposed to hundreds of times as men were being shipped off to war wanting to be married before they died. She asked Dad if he would marry her after years of them working together and being buddies. He said yes and they were married one week later he preached for three hours and people were saved then he had her get up and they said their vows and were married. They had the worst marriage ever the first few years. Dad did not understand women at all and Mom was a fire ball. She would throw rocks at him and he would run to her mom, who told him “she is your problem now.” They learned to work together and God continues to use them to this day. If mom had not been praying for my Dad he might have not been the man that God wanted him to be. The Bible tells us to Pray.
    Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Luke 10:2
    God knows that this young man needs your prayers, he might have great plans for him, so pray for him as you would according to the verse above. That he would be a labour for God. God bless, Shalom

    Hi ladyrohi!
    I actually have a question..I’m not saying that I doubt that God told you whom you are going to marry, I was just wondering if you might tell me how. Please, please don’t feel like telling me if you don’t want to, i totally understand, it’s just that I’ve been wondering how people can tell if God has chosen a man for them or not. May God bless you both!
    Again, don’t tell me if you don’t want to! If it’s personal, that’s totally and completely fine! Thanks, God bless
