      re:whats happening to me? engaged to be married   
I am pleased to hear that you are making steps in the right direction in your decision(s). Below is a prayer that I think you may enjoy:

"Almighty God, who gives strength to the weak and upholds those who might fall, give me courage to do what is right, for those that trust in you have no need to fear.

Make be brave to face any danger which may now threaten me. Give me the help that you have promised to those who ask it, that I may overcome my fears and go bravely forward.

Fill me with courage, that nothing which is my duty to do, may be too hard for me. Let me put my trust in your power and goodness.

Thank you my Lord.


Also, lets add this prayer for you as well; you may recognize it:

"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference."

I wish you the very best luck, and may God Bless you.

      re:whats happening to me? engaged to be married   
This weekend God confirmed that it was fear. And fear does bring torment.I pinpoint the attcks to have started with the engagement but after thinking about it a little further Ive been attacked on many occasions during times that I was pursuing anything Godly such as this marraige also ministry etc.I guess its true that" Many are the afflictions of the righteous, BUT God delivers us from them all". I am aware that the way I feel and what I know are 2 seperate issues and I know God does not bring fear on us. But will he allow it if you are outside his will? If I keep pleading the blood, binding and loosing and using his Word as my defence, sometimes to no effect is this an indication that I'm outside his will? Or is he trying to work fear out of me so that I can be perfected for his purpose. I know that its because of his grace and his mercy that I'm not consumed and I'm determined that I am going to fight fear round for round until I get the victory but I want to be sure that Im not fighting against Gods will at the same time. Thanx again for your words of confirmation. Continue to pray that god will reveal his will to me and that I will openly listen and receive without a hardened heart inspite of the circumstances to his response.

Lets start with this quote from the scriptures:

[1 John 4:18]
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Could it be that you want to be in love with this woman but in actuality you are not?
Or could it possibly be that you fear making a commitment...?

You state that "Deep in your heart I know this is my wife...I feel that God is trying to tell me something and I'm not listening."

This almost sounds as if you aren't hearing what you want to hear...and not what God is saying. It is almost as if you are apprehensive about this; and are waiting for a confirmation from God to justify your doubts.

[Song of Solomon 8:7]
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it...

If this was NOT the woman for you, God would have answered you long ago to warn you of making such a mistake.

Possibly God has answered in a way you do not want to hear...He has spoken against the marriage and you don't want to hear this response.

All people go through times of anxiety at the prospect of commiting to marriage; which is normal. However, to have these feelings for almost two years is something of a different matter; especially when you have gone as far as calling off the engagement due to these fears and anxieties.

Also, don't forget that Satan is a liar. Somehow Satan could have entered your thoughts, for fear is the work of Satan; and his lies are a well known trick of his.

[John 8:44]
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Also, do you have a Pastor/Father/Spiritual Leader that you can turn to for help and advice in this matter?

I wish you the very best during this troubled time.

God Bless.
