God listens and memorizes all our prayers. If you’ve been praying for a healthy relationship, God will most certainly prepare you for that. How will you know when that happens?
There are signs God is preparing you for a relationship, and all you need to do is pay attention to them and believe that your prayers will be answered.
To be in a godly relationship, you need to first be ready to enter it. So God will make sure to prepare you for meeting your godly man/woman.
You will meet your true love, aka the right person, according to God’s timing, which is always right. In the meantime, pay attention to the following signs God is preparing you for a relationship.
17 Signs God Is Preparing You For A Relationship
Perhaps you’ve already noticed some of these signs but haven’t connected them with their true meaning. Well, now is the time for self-reflection and learning the ways in which God is preparing you for a relationship.
1. Your faith and trust in God are steadfast
Cultivating a relationship with God is one of the most important relationships you need to nurture. Pursuing God’s purpose brings you freedom.
Your faith and trust have reached their pinnacle, and you feel spiritually enlightened and blessed with peace, agape love, and strength.
All these things are crucial when it comes to establishing a meaningful romantic relationship, and that is how God is preparing you for what’s to come.
2. You’ve been praying for the right person
You’ve been praying that God brings you a healthy, loving relationship based on respect, trust, and unconditional love.
You believe that God already has plans for your Christian relationship/marriage with your future husband or wife. You decided to surrender yourself completely to Him because He knows what’s best for you.
You’re not making a list of traits you would or wouldn’t want in your future partner. Instead, you trust that God knows exactly what kind of person should enter your life.
You’ve been praying for the right person, not a perfect one because perfectionism doesn’t exist.
And you know there is someone out there specifically “designed” for you, and once you meet, your love will be stronger than anything you’ve experienced so far.
3. Your heartaches are a thing of the past
You have healed all your past brokenness and no longer dwell in the past. This is definitely one of the signs God is preparing you for a relationship.
God can’t let you meet the one He chose for you until you are completely healed from all your heartaches. These heartaches have the purpose of making you wiser and stronger.
They have prepared you for your future relationship with your special person. So, if your heartaches are a thing of the past, it means you’re finally ready to meet your person.
You’ve learned so much from your past relationships, and now you’re not afraid of anything. You know exactly what you want in a relationship and what you don’t want.
Most importantly, you know what it takes to create a healthy relationship, and you’re totally ready for it!
4. Your emotional maturity is increased
You used to be overly sensitive about everything, but now that has changed. Your emotional maturity has increased significantly.
You’re in control of your emotions, and you don’t let every single little thing annoy you. Even when you’re going through hard times, you don’t lose hope. You always manage to find a silver lining and stay positive.
You don’t allow your feelings to interfere with making decisions, which means you’re emotionally ready for every challenge in life, especially in romantic relationships. That is how God is preparing you for it.
5. Financial stability
Entering a relationship and, eventually, marriage is not only about feelings. It is also about financial stability because it’s impossible for you to have a happy love life if you aren’t financially stable.
So, before meeting your person, God will make sure that you’re financially independent. You need to be ready in that area as well.
This will help you reach your full potential, and it will bring you a sense of security, especially when you’re considering starting a family.
Lord knows how expensive diapers, baby food, clothes, and all the other necessities for babies are. Being financially ready for such and similar challenges is a must.
6. You value a person’s character more than their looks
Are you more focused on your future partner’s physical traits or personality? Does your imaginary list of traits begin with something like tall, black hair, and blue eyes?
If not, then this is also one of the signs God is preparing you for a relationship. You’ve learned to value a person’s character more than their looks because you know that good looks fade, but a good heart keeps you beautiful forever.
Praising real values is one of the main lessons you need to learn to be ready to experience unconditional love. You can never love someone fully if you’re only focused on their external qualities.
Valuing someone’s essence means valuing their character rather than their physical attributes. God wants you to be fully ready to experience greatness, and that is why you need to be adequately prepared for it.
7. You’ve overcome your insecurities
You used to be insecure about your looks, your personality, and especially your quirks. But now, all this has changed for the better.
You’ve overcome your insecurities, and you feel comfortable in your own skin. You’re not afraid to show the world your true colors and embrace your imperfections.
You’re ready to be loved for who you really are and not what the media and others force you to be.
8. Self-care and self-love are your new best friends
Since you started working on yourself, you have discovered the power of self-love. You’re determined to become the best version of yourself.
Perhaps you started exercising, meditating, being more conscious about nutrition, helping others, finding new hobbies, you name it.
It’s true that you cannot love others if you don’t love yourself. That’s exactly what God is trying to teach you.
If you suddenly feel more energetic and fulfilled due to changes in your lifestyle, know that this is happening for a reason. Now you’re fully ready to love and be loved.
9. You’re okay with taking things slowly
Before, you would direct all your energy into targeting red flags even when there weren’t any. But now you’ve decided that you won’t rush or be overly suspicious of things.
You’re okay with taking things slowly, which is the best relationship advice you’ve ever implemented. Do you know why you no longer feel the need to rush anything?
Because deep down in your heart, you know that you’re about to experience a love that is uplifting and inspiring, a love that stays.
10. Your patience has significantly increased
You’re grateful for all God’s blessings, and you no longer feel the need to rush anything. Your patience has significantly increased, and you believe that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be right now.
You live day by day and focus on the little things around you. You notice the warmth of the sun, the beauty of the bright blue sky, and the smell of beautiful flowers.
You’re patient and in tune with your surroundings and the universe. They say that you attract what you think about. That is how God is preparing you for attracting greatness and abundance.
11. Selflessness has become your middle name
You suddenly think about everyone and everything around you. You go feed the ducks at the park near you not because you have to but because you want to.
Your selflessness reflects in everything you do. You’re eager to help your colleague with their work because you know the struggle. You notice other people’s pain and hardships and offer them understanding and help.
You’re more focused on giving than receiving, which is the most important thing in relationships. When both partners are more focused on giving, the balance is established.
12. You nurture your caring tendencies
You care about that lost cat you just found on the street and are doing your best to find her owners. You care about other people’s feelings, and you’re more focused on listening than talking.
These are all signs you are about to meet your soulmate. God is helping you nurture your caring tendencies so you can be ready for a loving and uplifting future relationship.
The more you care, the closer you are to your higher self. Care is a powerful emotion that turns you into a humble person who knows the real meaning of love.
13. Your perception of love has changed
Before, you used to think of love as how it is depicted in the movies. Let me demonstrate: Two people meet, everything goes smoothly (until it doesn’t), they’re madly in love with one another, and after a few obstacles, they live happily ever after.
Now you understand that love is nothing like that in real life. Your perception of love is more realistic because you know that it comes with constant challenges.
You see love as a powerful emotion, a feeling that inspires you to be the best you can be and to fight for what you have. And you’re ready to experience that with your future partner.
14. You’ve become more responsible
Among other things, God’s purpose for your life is to prepare you for a future marriage or relationship. This also includes learning to be more responsible.
Taking responsibility for your actions is something God wants you to implement in every aspect of your life, including your future relationship.
Both you and your partner will make mistakes, which is an inevitable part of every relationship. Well, apologizing and taking responsibility for your actions is also essential if you want your relationship to last.
15. You are content being single
You no longer cry over your single destiny when binge-watching romantic comedies. You don’t repeat to others: I’ll be single forever. You don’t worry about what others think of your solo life.
You’ve learned how to be content being single, and you’re no longer jealous of couples around you. This is also one of the great signs He is preparing you to meet your person, the person God has for you.
The thing is, your special person shouldn’t be someone who will make you happy. To be happy in a relationship, you need to be happy being single.
16. You are learning to trust God’s timing and His plans
You are excited about a relationship but aren’t scared of waiting. You’re in tune with the Holy Spirit, and you don’t question God’s plans for you.
You know that God is present in every area of your life, including your love life and a future romantic relationship. Therefore, you trust God’s timing and know He has great plans for you.
You know that love is patient, and that is how you behave. You no longer question anything that happened in your past, and you’re not anxious about your future. Everything feels just right.
That warm feeling inside your heart is actually your strong desire to share your romantic love with the One God has chosen for you. Sometimes, you feel as if you have already met them because those strong feelings are already there.
This is a great sign that you’re about to enter a relationship soon. The closer you are to it, the stronger the emotions you feel for your future partner.
Even though you still don’t know who that person is, you feel the connection because love is that powerful.
How Do You Know When God Is Trying To Get Your Attention?
God often tries to get our attention through repetitive messages, those close to use, dreams, etc. Here are some of the ways God communicates explained in detail:
• Repetitive messages
Repeatedly seeing a certain topic, sentences, or words are considered repetitive messages that you keep seeing for a reason.
It’s one of God’s ways to let you know which direction you should go or reassure you that you’re on the right path.
God can send repetitive messages through various articles (such as this one), sermons, podcasts, you name it.
All you need to do is open your eyes and soul and not worry because God knows what’s in your heart even when you’re silent.
Sometimes God tries to get your attention through dreams and visions. Let’s say that you’re about to enter a romantic relationship soon. Dreaming of that happening is God’s way of letting you know that it will happen for sure.
You don’t need to dream of that specific person, but you can dream of something else symbolic that serves as a powerful message to you from God.
• Your friends are His middlemen
Yes, God is everywhere around us, and He speaks to us in various ways. He speaks to us through the Bible, other devotional books, and other people.
So, pay attention to what advice your friends are giving you. Perhaps it’s God speaking through them. Your friends and others close to you are His middlemen.
If your inner circle is persistent about something, then you can be sure this is happening for a reason. God wants you to listen to them and do as they say because He wants the best for you.
• Feeling uneasy
God is trying to get your attention through mood swings and feeling uneasy and lost. All these states can lead you to prayer, which is God’s way of trying to communicate with you.
If you experience sudden feelings of uneasiness, know that this might be God’s way of calling you and trying to get your attention.
