Here is another archived post from our Diary of A Future Spouse!
Well to start off, I am finding myself feeling frustrated and almost hopeless in believing that I can find true love God’s way. Don’t get me wrong, I know God is able, but sometimes I just wonder if He is able and willing to perform such a miraculous work in my life.
I met my first boyfriend at 18 when I was a freshman in College. I was a virgin then, and I stood firm on the fact that I wanted to wait until I was married to go all the way.
Today we will revisit a past Diary of A Future Spouse post of a real life dating story that was submitted.
I dated a man for 5 months. During the 5 month relationship, I did everything I could to show this man that I was the exception, which was my mistake. This man had a son from a previous relationship. I loved his son the moment I held him.
When you are in route to getting in a relationship, there are some things that you need to not do before you date or while you’re dating. I’m not talking about if you get to the 1, but I’m talking about when you get to the 1. There are some bad habits that need to be broken. I have outlined 3 things to stop doing when you date. These things sometimes go unnoticed, but if you recognize it, it will help you tremendously on your way to the 1.
Love is not hard to find! It is very easy for someone to fall in love with you! Some of you have gotten frustrated b/c you haven’t met the 1 yet! Not only have you not met the 1, but you haven’t met any good potentials. The good news is that it doesn’t matter. You will meet the right 1, and it will be easy for the right 1 to fall in love with you b/c they’ve waited for you all their life!
Here we are 1 day away from another new calendar year. Perhaps you have waited to connect with your best love ever and it didn’t happen. I know that for many of you, the past 364 days have not been the best. You have seen some better days. Granted, all was not bad. However, I know that the warfare was at an all time high in the body of Christ b/c of what we’re coming into.
No matter where you find yourself at this present moment when it comes to relationships, if you desire to marry, the fact of the matter remains that you will have to date before you walk down the aisle. Of course the desire is that the next person you date will be the 1. However, even in that, it’s still a process and there are some red flags that you need to be aware of and make sure you don’t ignore.
I know you’ve waited and waited and prayed and waited. You have gotten to the place on more than one occasion to where you’re tired of praying about it and you’re tired of waiting. You want to be excited, but some parts of you are beginning to actually question if you ever will meet the 1. Many of you are in the place of “Lord I believe, but help my unbelief.”
Some of you have gotten to the place where your hope has dwindled about getting married. It’s not that you don’t think it will happen, but it’s the fact that so much other things are going on. You are looking for breakthrough in so many other areas. You may be wondering, when will I finally get a break?!
