I Thought God Decided

"What do you mean you decided to get married?" Ashley blurted out. "Don't you mean God decided?" "Actually, it was kind of a corporate decision," Jenny answered with a smile. "I knew that a relationship with Doug was in God's will, but God didn't decide for me. I had a choice in the matter, and so did Doug. God loves us so much that He wants us to enjoy the desires of our heart as long as our number one desire is to delight in Him. Had I chosen not to marry Doug, or had he chosen not to marry me, I probably would have met another Christian man who would have been just as much in God's will for my life.”

Ashley didn't like what she was hearing. Next to God, Bobby was the desire of her heart. But what if Bobby didn't feel the same way about her? She wanted God to make the choice—namely, choosing Bobby for her and her for Bobby. It was becoming painfully clear to Ashley that she had to talk to about her future with Bobby.
