the story of Kelsie Powell & Joshua Steele
I had known many godly young ladies in my time, but I must confess I had wondered to myself what kind of a girl would want to give up life in America and move to Ukraine. And yet, here was a girl who seemed quite prepared for such a change.
Be careful that your efforts to “be prepared” for whenever God brings you into a courtship don’t leave you with a narrow view of how He will work. Be careful not to construct a formula in your head as to how a courtship should look. And above all, be careful to submit every aspect of future romantic relationships to our Father…including how you think they’ll look and play out. Because as many courtship books remind us, God really does write the best love stories.
