I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve met a lot of phonies, and even been blind enough to date them. After finding the right man to date, the battle becomes keeping God in the center of the relationship AND your life, rather than the man you’re dating. He knows every guy’s heart better than we ever will, and the best part of this is they can’t fool God like they may be able to fool us (1 Samuel 16: 7). If we trust Him, we can avoid a lot of unnecessary heartbreak.However, you can still find a man who will openly talk with you.
The kind of guy Jesus wants you to date has the following qualities: If he doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus, then don’t have a romantic relationship with him.
If Jesus is your everything, that should show in who you date. The Bible says that Christians shouldn’t date unbelievers (Read my blog entitled, “Why Christians Shouldn’t Date Non-Christians“).
Ask Him to make it perfectly clear whether to continue seeing the guy or not. When things did/do get off balance, I find that Ethan and I fight more, which makes sense, since I am expecting him to fill parts of my heart that he can’t. I actually hadn’t spent much time single UNTIL I decided to follow Jesus.
For me, this is something that I constantly have to keep in check.
This was extremely encouraging and freeing for her. When you are single and feel lonely, ask God to show you how much He loves you. We want to be wooed, we want to be thought of, we want to be pursued and fought for, we want little gifts – whether in the form of a bouquet or a kiss on the forehead. He wants to be delighted in just like we do, He loves doing this kind of stuff!!
