Okay - be honest - how many times have you felt like something wasn't right in a relationship but you chose to ignore the red flags? You know what I mean - maybe it's something he said or maybe it's something he did. you know it's not right but you convince yourself that everything is fine.
That's a classic case of "wearing love blinders" - when we're blinded by "being in love" and often times it's with someone that we only "think" we know. After all, he says all the right things and your heart skips a beat when he flashes that charming smile - so what could be the problem?
The problem is maybe there's more to him than meets the eye, or maybe he's influencing you in a bad way, or maybe he's just not the right person for you. Whatever it maybe, if God wants someone out of your life, trust that it's not to harm you but to help you.
We may act surprised but God warns us, often times more than once, and we fail to see it. (If you're asking why, just refer back to the "love blinders.") We do everything in our power to hold onto someone because we don't want to accept that maybe just maybe - it's just not meant to be.
Proverbs 19:21 says, "Many are the plans in a person's heart but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."
The truth is, if God wants someone out of our lives, He will remove them - no matter how much we kick and scream. If we ignore the red flags long enough, God will take drastic measures and it's usually not pretty.
Many times we're left heartbroken and upset, when really, had we listened in the first place, it would have saved us a lot of trouble. When we're young (and even when we're old), we may not understand why the "right one" ends up being the "wrong one." However we have to accept that - no it's not the end of the world and yes we can move on. And most importantly, we have to trust that since God loves us enough to protect us from that person, that in His perfect timing, He'll bring someone into our lives who is better than we could ever imagine.
