How do I deal with the discouraging feeling that I will never get married within the church life because I am black?
[#10 Q1] I am a black sister, and I have grown up in the church life. I am currently 24 now, and I have the desire to be married, although I am in no rush. However, I am often discouraged regarding this matter of marriage because I have always had the feeling that there is a slim possibility of me getting married to a brother in the church life because I am black. I have had various interactions with saints over the years, and they have expressed a racial preference, and it was never their preference to marry someone black. How do I deal with this discouraging feeling, and is this a realistic thought that I’m having?
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to providing a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
