I've been dating a wonderful Christian man for a year and a half. As a matter of fact, I've never met anyone who lived so fully for God the way he does. Anyway, he is completely in love with me, and I love him, but I know that I don't love him the way that he loves me. I have been in love before, and the love I have for my current boyfriend is quite a bit less than the love I had for a past boyfriend. Although I'm not head over heels for him, the Lord has spoken to my heart several times about him and told me that he is The One. My boyfriend has said that the Lord has told him the same thing. I know that if I married him, I would be happy forever, but I still think the whole situation is unfair for both of us. He has seriously changed my life. He showed me what a relationship with God is supposed to look like, and if it weren't for him, I would not be saved. If the Lord continues to tell me that I am supposed to marry this man, I will gladly do it, because I want what He wants, and like I said, I know that my boyfriend would make me happy forever and support me. At the same time, my soul hurts when I think that I may end up marrying someone who doesn't give me butterflies and who I'm not madly in love with. Like I said, I DO love him, but not to the extent that I would marry him if the Lord weren't pointing me in that direction. I hope all of this makes sense.
I know that God has gigantic plans for that man. I know that He will use him regardless of whether or not I'm in his life forever.
I know that none of you can tell me what to do, because that is up to God, but have any of you ever been in a similar situation? I feel completely and utterly lost, frustrated, and confused. I will gladly take all the advice you can give. Thank you so much in advance for your thoughts and concerns.
God's blessings and peace.
