When you do meet that man someday that you connect really well with … Pray that he will grow and be transformed every day into the likeness of Christ.Ask God now to prepare you and your future husband for the time when you will be wed.
Specifically, it seems that some of you are wondering if it’s okay to date non-Christians. God’s Word urges us not to link our lives with non-believers, and the consequences of choosing to do otherwise can be disastrous.
But I know that you might not be willing to simply take my word on this one.
If they are not down with respecting you for taking this season in your life to grow more as a woman, then you need to pray for them that they may understand your heart and that you are letting yourself be prepared for your future husband.
When you are not equally yoked to a believer of a very close maturity level in your relationship with Christ and when you don’t have a very similar philosophy on how to live your life, then you should not enter into a relationship with that person.
I told my youth pastor about her because she wasn’t in the youth group.
I tried to convince him (and myself) that it would be good for me to date her so that she might come to youth group and become a Christian. A few years before this, my youth minister gave our youth group a lesson we called “the triangle talk.” This talk consisted of a triangle drawn out, and the guy on the left base of the triangle and the girl on the right base.
How you will give your time, money, and energy in service to the Lord?
Are you both fine with living by faith and not have any real plans except to follow the Lord?
The concept was simple-when a person is focused upward to the pinnacle of the triangle (God), they will eventually meet up with that special someone that God has specifically designed for them.
If a guy and girl are in a relationship, they should be focused on God, and as they grow closer to God they will inevitably grow closer to one another.
Our relationship ended after she wrote me a letter telling me she thought I was the one for her, and I told her I wasn’t. Our focus even as good Christian kids was on each other and not on God and how we were to be obedient to Him in His service. The girl I dated for 15 months was a great girl and a strong Christian, but we were not equally yoked.
