The relationship is not according to God’s Word

When two people are in a relationship, they are bound together by mutual love and respect. However, there are times when God may tell one or both of them to let go. There are many different ways that God can communicate His will to us, but some of the most common signs that He is telling us to let go include:

-The relationship is not according to God’s Word.

-One or both partners are not living according to God’s standards.

-There is constant fighting and conflict in the relationship.

-One or both partners feel unhappy and unfulfilled in the relationship.

Your partner does not seem marriage- and parent-material

It’s a big decision to make whether or not to marry someone and have children with them. You want to be sure that they will be good husband or wife material and good father or mother material. But how can you know for sure? You may have your reservations about your partner being marriage- and parent-material if:

1. They don’t seem interested in getting married themselves or having children.

If your partner has no interest in getting married or having children, it may be a sign that they’re not ready for the commitment required in those roles. They may not be ready to settle down and may prefer to remain single and childless. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s something you should consider when making the decision about whether or not to marry them.

2. They’re always putting their own needs first.

A good husband or wife will put their partner’s needs ahead of their own occasionally, but if your partner is always putting their own needs first, it could be a sign that they’re selfish and won’t be able to meet your needs as a spouse effectively. The same goes for being a parent – if they’re always putting themselves first, they’ll likely struggle to put their child’s needs before their own as well (which is something all parents need to do at times).

3..They don’t seem capable of handle stress/pressure well.

added from comments: If your partner seems like they crumble under pressure or stress easily, this could also spell trouble down the line in terms of marriage and parenting commitments. Both roles often require being able to handle stressful situations calmly and rationally – if your partner can’t do this, it could mean difficult times ahead for both them and you..

It draws you farther from the Lord

There are many things in this world that can pull us away from the Lord if we’re not careful. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the business of life and forget to keep our relationship with God a priority. Other times, we may be faced with difficult circumstances that make it hard to focus on anything else.

When we find ourselves in a situation where we feel like we’re being pulled away from the Lord, it’s important to take a step back and evaluate what’s going on. Is there something in our lives that is drawing us away from Him? If so, then it’s time to let go of whatever it is and turn back to the Lord.

There is no all-purpose answer for knowing when God is telling you to let go. However, there are some general guidelines that can help you figure out if you need to let something go in order to stay close to the Lord.

If you’re feeling constantly stressed, anxious, or depressed, this may be a sign that something in your life isn’t right. It’s possible that you’re holding on to something that is causing you more harm than good. In these cases, letting go of whatever it is may be the best thing for your mental and emotional health.

If you find yourself constantly thinking about someone or something other than God, this could also be a sign that He wants you to let go of something (or someone). When we focus our attention on things other than God, it takes away from our relationship with Him. If He has been trying unsuccessfully to get your attention for awhile now, He may want you to let go of whatever is distracting you so He can have your full attention again.

You become distant from your other loved ones

As you become more and more focused on your relationship with God, you may find yourself becoming distant from your other loved ones. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it can be a sign that you are growing closer to God and that your priorities are changing. However, if you find yourself completely isolating yourself from others, it may be a sign that you need to re-evaluate your relationship with God.

It’s important to remember that we are all human and that we all need human connection. There is nothing wrong with seeking a deeper connection with God, but we must also make sure that we maintain our connections with others. If you find yourself becoming too isolated, take some time to reflect on why this is happening and whether or not it is healthy for you.

You are distracted from your goals

You know you’re supposed to be focused on your goals, but lately you can’t seem to focus on anything. You’re constantly getting sidetracked and you feel like you’re never going to achieve what you set out to do.

It’s possible that God is trying to tell you something by making it difficult for you to focus. Maybe He wants you to let go of something that’s been weighing you down. Maybe He wants you to take a different path than the one you’ve been walking on.

Whatever the reason, if God is trying to get your attention, it’s important that you listen. Don’t ignore the signs He’s sending your way. Be willing to let go of whatever is holding you back, and trust that He will guide your steps.

You are not growing

When you feel like you are not growing in your relationship with God, it may be time to let go. This doesn’t mean that you should give up on your faith altogether, but rather that you should reassess your priorities and focus on what is most important to you. If your relationship with God is no longer a priority in your life, then it is time to let go.
