Related 5 Comments Jinnie on February 19, 2014 at 11:21 pm Hi April, Greetings from the South Pacific.Thank you very much for this blog. I have been following your blog since October 2013. I can tell you that I have been greatly blessed and helped along the way by your posts. I was in danger of forcing my way into a godly man’s life recently, but I backed off after learning about how man think and do things and what repels them etc on this blog. I also almost rushed into making the decision to get engaged to another godly man without seeking the Lord’s will. So I have been helped a lot by reading your posts and that of many others who posted here. Now I am wiser and can say I have identified the idol of romance with a godly guy and have worked on asking God to remove it, of course and repenting of it all. I now await the Lords will in my life as His is the perfect will. God Bless.

There is no better place to be in the world. I pray for His wisdom and direction for each step for you. I’m always glad to hear from you any time. Much love! Reply peacefulwife on February 20, 2014 at 6:17 am Jinnie, PS It is ok to desire to have a romantic relationship. God designed us for relationships. The key is to keep it in the proper place of priority – and not put it above Himself in our hearts. 🙂 Reply Jinnie on February 20, 2014 at 6:08 pm Hi April, thanks for your prayers. I will say Amen to Seeking God’s will first. Thank you, I now have come to accept that it is not wrongful of me to desire a romantic relationship, now that God is No. 1 on my list, all the rest will fall in line. It was shocking to learn of that kind of idolatry (romance- happily ever after etc) here,bcos I had never realised that I made that my idol. It took a while to wean myself off that idea of romance. God spoke to me in your blog! I have since repented and now am free in mind and do not have those ideas anymore. I have come to accept that all things happen according to GOD’s will and time. And I believe that HE will provide what my heart desires at the right time. God is Good. God Bless. Jinnie Reply peacefulwife on February 21, 2014 at 8:37 am Jinnie, WOW! I praise God for what He is doing in your life! I think almost all women in our culture today have romance as an idol – and we don’t even know it! And we tend to have being in control and having our own way and SELF as idols, too. 🙁 Not good! The scary thing is that we don’t know what we are doing, so it becomes very difficult to address the real issue. We are miserable and discontent, but we think if we had what we wanted, we would be fine. We don’t realize that we are insatiable and that those worldly things can never satisfy us. I am so excited about what God is doing in your life!!!!!!! 🙂 I wish I could hug your neck! Much love, April Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
