I am three years away from turning 40 and have been praying for a spouse for 19 years. The Bible says that when we ask, we receive. The general theology given in the church states that our faithfulness in service to God, His church and His people will be rewarded. And, if not that – at least our patience. My faith hurdle is not that God has not provided a spouse (though, the confusion about it is certainly the impetus to this next part)…but, how can I change this deep desire and find a cause for my life that is equally as compelling and persistent and passion-inducing? In short, how do I stop wanting to be married/have a life’s partner without cutting off my humanity and being truthful to God to my own self?
This is my faith hurdle. —SearchingForACause
