Christian dating does he like me
I'm eager to marry a godly man, but so often it seems like Christian men are more interested in the worldly girls who are just starting to find their way to Christ (like my sister), and they overlook the godly girls who've been there all along (like me).I told myself that the kind of godly man who would be right for me wouldn't be interested in a worldly woman without spiritual maturity, but now I wonder if I was wrong.I want to support her, but when she asks me for advice about him, I don't know what to say because I can't tell her the truth: how much it hurts that I've remained steadfast but single, while as the returning prodigal, she might get everything I always wanted. I had a friend in junior high and high school who seemed to get away with mischief, get the boys, and still get to take leading roles in our small Christian school.
The trajectory of lives and eternities are in the balance. Laying out guidelines for dating as followers of Jesus will alter lives by keeping people out of toxic and unhealthy relationships (and ultimately marriages). “The one” says you need to find the perfect person. The beauty of marriage is God sustains you despite your flaws. The shells of a shotgun are stuffed with tiny round balls. You are asked to go from a mentality that says “End a relationship as soon as difficulty arises,” to one that says, “Don’t end the relationship regardless of the difficulty that arises.” That’s a tough switch to flip.
The challenge is that she has just gotten involved with her church, and she's already found an amazing, attractive, godly man that has her interest.
