Grace and I both felt our courtship was distracting us from our most important relationship, our relationship with the Lord. We have decided to call our courtship off and refocus on what God has for us as individuals. We are still friends.
The main purpose of courtship is to glorify God and draw us closer to him. Even though this courtship has come to an end we have avoided splat . God is faithful above all else and He has given both Grace and me a great deal of peace about our decision.
May peace be upon you and Grace. Our world needs people like both of you, people who are dedicated to doing what God asks of them, people who won't put their own personal pleasure before dedication to God. Your courtship is not a failure, by all means, it's a stunning success!
Praying for you all as you make the transition… I am so glad you avoided the “splat”…
