Secrets of a Pastor’s daughter 7 - My first boyfriend




As I had mentioned on the previous post, after receiving the Holy Spirit I began to have a strong desire to serve on the altar. I remember when I was 15 to 16 years old I participated of a Campaign of Israel and I asked for a man of God. But when I arrived in Brazil and I saw that there were many assistant pastors, I confess I had a certain fear, I was afraid of choosing wrong! I did not want to marry anyone; I wanted a man of God prepared by God Himself for me.

After a few months in Brazil, I was introduced to a pastor. He was friendly and apparently from God. He asked my father and the bishop responsible for him permission to talk to me. We started talking, then we started dating but I always asked God to show me if he was God's choice for me because I didn't want to make a mistake. And in our conversations he would always utter something that made me thoughtful about us. He would always say that there were many other assistants interested in him, a long line of assistants interested in him, and that they were very beautiful, etc… but he had chosen me, but I could feel in his word a little bit of disdain. I felt ugly in comparison to the descriptions of all the other candidates lol… I had a strange feeling about these conversations. What did he mean with I chose you? What did he mean with there were so many in line? Why did he choose me then? Just because I was the daughter of the bishop? Since when I was in someone's line? You see friends that I would not just pay attention to the beautiful words and the plans we were making together, but I was also weighing every word he said, I was not blinded by love at a point of not seeing the obvious, I did not want to be deceived by my feelings but I wanted to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Our love life is a very important area of ​​our lives and we should use our head, reason and faith in order to be happy. So I made a very serious prayer to God and I asked Him to show me what to do, ever since we were dating I noticed these attitudes, which I did not like, imagine how it would be like later. And God showed me what to do.

So, I suited myself with strength, faith and courage – because we already had wedding plans - and so I cancelled everything, yes with no feelings. That feeling and doubt in me showed me that he was not the choice of God for me. I had to make a serious decision: to act by my feelings and continue dating or to act by my intelligent faith, hearing God's direction and end everything. I preferred to use my faith and obey God. I broke up with him not caring if he was a pastor or not and I was confident that God had another one ready for me. When a person is not from God, deep down we know who is and who is not and that's when we have to decide whether to obey God or not. Now, you see how important and wonderful it is to hear and obey God. Today unfortunately this pastor is no longer in the work of God. Imagine if I had married him, where would I be today?

My advice to you friends, is: Wait on God! Ask Him to prepare that special person for you… Only He knows what is best for us. If you are in a relationship and you notice something wrong, something that brings a little doubt, something that does not go with your faith, if God is showing that he is not the right person for you, do not be afraid to end everything and obey God, believe that He will honor you for your obedience. It doesn't matter if he is a pastor, an assistant or whoever, if God shows you that he is not the right person, do not insist, because if you insist you will suffer the consequences tomorrow. The secret friends, is to trust in God and not be afraid to obey Him. Remember: It is better to obey God than to sacrifice.

Next week I will tell you about the one I thought was the love of my life, what do you think happened? A kiss to all and see you then.
