Draper wrote, “Doubt never means yes and always means no or wait a while: God does not lead through doubt. Don’t go so far as justifying staying in a relationship you’ll wish you had abandoned later.If you can’t get peace, that is an answer.” When God opens the door for marriage in your life, you will know that you know you are with the right person. Here’s why: in the dating world, thoughts like, “I can’t break up because…,” mean that doubt has given the keys to fear which will drive you down a rough road containing potholes of confusion and bumps of anxiety.
