the story of Andrea Wall & Joseph Gellenbeck
As time went by, it became clear to me that I was going to have to wait much longer that I had ever thought that I would. Over 2 years went by, and as I waited, I began to get depressed over the situation.
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.
