What I was doing with this new girlfriend was taking my eyes off of God and focusing on the really pretty girl.
For many of you, you may not be ready to be married. Enjoy the friendships with guys around you as brothers.
Let them know where you stand, and you will encourage and challenge them to grow as men of the Lord.
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.
As a young Christian girl, you should focus on Christ; focus on His call on your life to follow Him. You need to be content with serving and obeying Christ. As you seek the Lord and focus on Him, if you are to be married, the Lord will put the perfect man for you in your path.
Seek to understand what that means for each one of you. You must not seek to find your fulfillment in a man. You should be able to see him in several different roles and know that you would be best yoked with that one man while on this earth.
I understand the temptation to believe that dating non-Christians is okay.
In fact, I get why so many young women have been deceived into thinking that it is a potentially wonderful missions opportunity.
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.
