Should I look for another man?
Today we are playing "Dear Abby." We received this inquiry from a young woman recently:
Hello, I'm wondering, is it right of me, to look for another man, when my heart is dead-set on my ex boyfriend (who says he does not want anyone but me, but is not "sure" right now if he even wants that). I feel like I cannot love anyone else? Or at least, my heart isn't there?
Thanks for the question. You should wait for your heart to heal and continue seeking God's will regarding your ex-boyfriend. It would be unfair to another suitor if you still have feelings for your ex. There's a time for everything: Eccl. 3:1:
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
