We are holistic beings, and in order to truly connect, we must find someone with whom we can connect with on every level. Ladies, you deserve to be with a man who chases after God so hard that he is willing to set boundaries with you to avoid sexual sin.
Communicate these boundaries and just don’t go there!
Dating someone that does not have the same values as you and surrounding yourself with someone who isn’t able to hold you accountable usually means they cause you stumble.
It’s okay to protect yourself from this and ultimately, you won’t be able to change someone, only God can.
As we really dive into a relationship with God, it’s important to stay focused.
I had girlfriends that lost it when they broke up with their boyfriends because they felt like they were losing a part of their relationship with God.
In fact, I respected his courage and appreciated him telling me his intentions but I was a senior in college nearing graduation and had no intentions of marrying this rando.I am sure there are a lot of Christians out there that don’t live a life of obedience or a life like God has called us to live. The Bible is pretty clear when it comes to this topic.Instead, I ask myself, is this man chasing after God faster than he is chasing after anything else? This isn’t to say that unbelievers can’t be good people and of course, you never know what plans God has for their lives, but I am saying I’d discourage you from dating someone who isn’t on the same spiritual foundation as you.Is this man able to lead me in a relationship where we serve God above ourselves every day? It’s going to mess you up, confuse your heart, and potentially smother your soul. If you are hoping to be the “one” who changes a boy’s heart and encourages him to chase after God.I won’t sit here and tell you that’s impossible (because God can do anything) but I want you to think about what God wants for you in a relationship right now.Initially, this was my way of guarding my heart and focusing my attention on seeking God above all else.It can be really easy to be motivated to go to church or pray because of a boy.Jordan pursued me because he knew what his intentions and desires were. It left me to decide if I wanted to play a game or get to know him better.Clear intentions are so attractive in a man but are also equally important for a woman to express too. When I first started dating Jordan, I told him I didn’t want to go to church together or pray together.Fact of the matter was, a free meal that night was better than my frozen Lean Cuisine in my fridge, so I played along. First, I fell in love with Hazel, Jordan’s mini golden retriever, and not longer after, I fell in love with Jordan.Falling in love with Jordan was pretty easy because I knew where he stood.
