Christian friendship vs dating

Ever had these thoughts about someone you are dating? Too many of my friends are finding themselves there now too.

I can’t say that I’m an expert on relationships, but if there is one thing that I feel like God taught me during my dating years (and it took about three years too many for me to learn this) it is that you should never settle for less than God’s best.

I know that sounds harsh, but let me explain my theory on Christian dating. But I do believe that if you are seeking God’s will about who you date, He will lead you to someone that is a true fit for you.

I don’t mean that your future spouse will be perfect or that you will think alike or always agree on everything. But I do believe that if you seek God’s guidance, He will lead you to the person who is going to be the match for you.

In some relationships, I found myself compromising some of my values to be more in line with that guy’s.

In other relationships, I began to think that some of the things I had wanted in a husband were perhaps more wishful thinking than things that could actually be.

I’ve read many books about relationships and Christian dating. His views helped me establish my own standards regarding marriage.

And believe me, there have been some pretty thick and thin times.

It was as if the idea of courtship was somewhere in the back of my head, but I simply never thought about it.
