Saved woman dating unsaved man
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.
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.
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.
When you are not equally yoked to a believer of a very close maturity level in your relationship with Christ and when you don’t have a very similar philosophy on how to live your life, then you should not enter into a relationship with that person.
In fact, I get why so many young women have been deceived into thinking that it is a potentially wonderful missions opportunity.
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.
If they don’t have a relationship with Christ, you shouldn’t be yoked to them. Before I left for camp that summer, I gave her a Bible and she gave me a journal and we said goodbye. She had made plans for where she wanted to live, what she wanted to do 15 years down the road, and I still have no idea what I’ll be doing after I graduate from college or when I’ll graduate.
I went off to college and told all my buddies, “I’m going to find a nice Christian girl and get married to her.” Well, I meet a girl my freshman year who was really sweet, loved the Lord, and liked doing fun stuff. I prayed about it a few weeks later, and God told me I had jumped the gun and that we should break up. I thought all I needed to do was get to know her and once I knew her pretty well that we could date with the idea in both of our heads that the end result would be marriage. The point I am trying to make here is that even when a guy is a strong Christian at a similar maturity level as you are, there are other factors that must be considered such as your views on spending and saving money.
When you do meet that man someday that you connect really well with … Pray that he will grow and be transformed every day into the likeness of Christ.
