Dating from goes head man marriage through
Life is never only, or even mainly, about love and marriage.Our life is about Jesus now — his love for us and his plans for us — whether we’re single or married, sixteen or sixty.He wants to show the world where to find happiness through your joy.You don’t need a boyfriend or girlfriend to experience any of God’s dreams for these early years. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.So why do so many of us still dive so quickly into dating?Well, in part, because Satan masks the risks so well (Revelation 12:9).But you can test — with the Lord, your parents, and close Christian friends — whether that seems wise and safe for you and your heart.
If he wills for you to be married, he wants to make you into a strong and caring future wife or husband.
Has our boyfriend or girlfriend matured enough to have any idea what they might be like as a husband or wife for the next fifty years? Will one or both of us be able to provide for a family financially?
Has his or her faith in Jesus been tested enough by trials to be confident it’s real?
I had my first “girlfriend” in the sixth grade, my first kiss that summer (different girl), and then a new girlfriend almost every year through high school.
From far too young, I was looking for affection, safety, and intimacy from girls instead of from God. My teenage years were one long string of relationships that were too serious for our age, went on too long, and therefore, ended too painfully. And the devil sat front-and-center, loving every minute of my early dating history.
God has so much more in store for you than any relationship can offer.
