Facing Our Challenges Head-On!

December 29, 2015

Dear Julie: I’m heartbroken. I was sure my boyfriend would finally ask me to marry him over Christmas. But the presents are unwrapped and there was no ring–again. We’ve been together for 5 years and there’s no promise of commitment from him. Should I hope for Valentine’s Day? –Giving Up


Dear Giving Up: Five years is a long time to wait for a commitment. I’d let your boyfriend know you expect this relationship to lead to marriage before another year is up. If he’s not of the same mind, then move on. Life is too short to waste years on someone who doesn’t want to commit to you. And you are too valuable to let that happen. God bless you. Julie


Remember, friends, as challenges come our way,
we can face them head-on
through Christ who strengthens us!
