Finding a job, making friends, doing ministry, and going to seminary all required me to take some action. If I did something beyond praying and waiting, did that mean I was taking over for men and sinfully thwarting God’s design for marriage?

It is through him that I find the greatest hope for a happy and blessed marriage, not by following a man-made dating prescription.
Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship or marriage.
Along the way, God graciously reminded me that my hope for a great marriage was not in finding the perfect guy to counter-balance my sinful tendency.
