Being Valentines Day and all, I wasn't surprised that a female friend of mine asked me if I had called it quits on my unrequitted love. I told her more or less I have, it's just something that doesn't cross mind much anymore these days. Then she says "Well I'm sure God will bring you a nice girl". Hmmmm what do I make of this statement? It reminded me of a young lady I dated several years ago. On our first (and only date) while on the ride back from dinner she tells that she had hoped to be married and having children by this time. She told me that she wasn't worried though since God will find her a husband. Now I'm certainly not knocking any religion or people who are religious by nature. I was baptized but rarely went to church after that. Yet these statements make me wonder just how far some people take their faith. I mean how can one surrender their control over their lives and expect whatever God they worship to just make everything fall into place? If it's true that God has a plan then there is such a thing as destiny right? So does that mean people should just wait around until God starts shifting our gears and steering us towards this destiny? Or did I just not understand where these two young ladies were coming from? Maybe this is a easy way to avoid the risks of making ones own decisions? I mean if God is going to find Heather a husband then how will she know when she meets him? There will be no need to play the field, no going to parties or bars or such to try to meet men. I met Heather at a previous job btw. Heather will just sit at home and God will drop a husband on her doorstep. Unless I'm missing something, I just can't see this happening.
