Ever had these thoughts about someone you are dating? Too many of my friends are finding themselves there now too.
I can’t say that I’m an expert on relationships, but if there is one thing that I feel like God taught me during my dating years (and it took about three years too many for me to learn this) it is that you should never settle for less than God’s best.
Since I had not done such a great job of choosing relationships on my own, I decided to let God choose the next one.
I wouldn’t even consider dating again until I had sought His will about the person and the relationship.
Did those caring, sensitive, funny, godly men really exist?
I had to ask myself, “Is he really on the same page as me when it comes to my Christian faith?I believe that God pairs us up with people that complement the gifts, talents, and personalities that He has given us – if we let Him. The guys I dated before I began dating my husband were not all bad guys. We genuinely cared about each other and had fun together.But in each relationship there were things that didn’t feel quite right.When friends began to point out other red flags about our relationship, I took some time to seriously seek God’s will on the matter.
I’d been struggling with making a decision about this particular relationship for at least a year.
It was after this that God began unfolding the events that led me to start dating Matt, the man that would become my husband.
