God did not create dating to fill a missing
gap in your life. He doesn’t want you to
abuse the company of another to reduce
your loneliness. God wants us to find an
equal match and use it to His benefit.
If you are feeling lonely, seek Him. If you are
tired, seek Him. If you are weary, fearful,
sad, or hurt, seek Him! Your partner should
not replace your love or desire for God. He
has a plan for all of us. Do not grow weary,
continue to seek Him and trust in His plans
for you. God has greater things in line for
your life than you can even imagine.
You may be thinking I’m jumping the gun
here. But if you can’t see yourself marrying
your partner in the slightest, then you’re in
the wrong place. You are setting your heart
up to be hurt or you’re intentionally hurting
I cannot imagine sitting in church on
Sunday morning as a married woman
without my husband or having my children
ask me, “Why doesn’t Daddy have to go to
church?” Relationships, whether just friends
or more than that, can be very complicated
things. Let’s ensure we are implementing
responsible decisions when making our
hearts vulnerable to another.
Finding someone special can take time and
patience. If you are feeling weary about who
you are currently with or maybe discouraged about your lack of companionship,
bring these concerns to God. Only He can
reveal the truth about your future. Maybe
your soulmate is on campus right now. Be
cautious, guard your heart and let the Lord
guide your path.
When God created relationships, He had
way more in mind for us than Tinder, social
media relationship statuses and texting. He
created this infinite, sacred, and beautiful
bond between man and woman. Pointless
conversation bouncing between cellphone
towers is not the relationship that God has
called us to have.
After observing and reflecting on the
relationship that my parents share, I was
surprisingly enlightened. Their arguments
are always made in person, not text
messages or DMs. Their physical love is
shared through touch, not photos. More
importantly, an “I love you” is exchanged
with eye contact, not emojis.
Remember, before jumping into a relationship, pray about it and ask God to order all
of your steps.
