I always claimed that I was “trusting God” when it came to my love life.
But man-oh-man did my love life experience prove otherwise.
In a sense, I was looking to God whenever I was dating or in a relationship. However, my prayers always seemed to be one-sided.
I remember praying that the guy I had a crush on would like me back. My prayers would turn into desperate pleas in hopes that I would get noticed. They would evolve into exciting “praises” whenever God would “open the doors” as my texting convos would turn into dates and exclusive relationships. I would “count my blessings” whenever my relationships went well and I was in love.
But oh, once those relationships turned south, my praises disappeared. I no longer looked to God in faith. Rather, I would seek God for the answers as to why things did not work out.
You see, in all of this time, I never once sat with God in stillness to gather His thoughts. I never once decided to wait on God to see whether what my heart desired was actually what God also desired.
So, when it all comes to pass, looking back, I don’t believe that I ever truly trusted God.
I was trusting Him with my life but never entirely with my heart.
That’s a big no-no. I can now see that as clear as day.
The points to prove this theory? In all of my past relationships, I would:
- ignore the red flags
- self sabotage myself and the relationship with my insecurities
- idolize my boyfriend above everything else, including my faith

Sure, Christian women may THINK they’re trusting God when it comes to their love life. But their trust goes as far as a “Hail Mary” prayer to get a man, and a “why God?!” when things don’t end well.
