I was talking with a group of Christian men the other day and was given astonishing insight into the current dating scene. I’ve found myself wondering how do I encourage my brothers to GET OUT THERE and date. Group hangouts are great, but find time for one on one where your intentions are clear.
Think through the Bible…all the great men that had relationships with God and who he used and blessed…usually didn’t have a clue about where they were going and (here is the even crazier part) even if they had a clue, their lives for a long time did not reflect that great place God said he was taking them. All the way from Abraham …going to a land he did not know; Joseph having a dream that people would bow down to him but became a slave and then a prisoner; David who was anointed to be King and then lived the next 15 years in the wilderness as a fugitive; Peter the great fisher of men who was barely able to catch fish.
Because Girls might get offended or not understand but a mature Christian woman will probably get it and take the knowledge. A woman’s relationship status does not define her, so being single is not a disease or an indication of something “wrong” with her.
I’ll tell you probably like no one has told you before.
Before I write another line though, it’s important that I say a few things and get some things out of the way. This article is mainly for mature Christian single women. This is however, for Christian ladies who are ready for marriage but frustrated that they can’t find the right guy even though there seems to be options. I write this respectfully but I will write it as honestly as possible as a man and as someone who knows a thing or two about relationships.
So this article is not to list a bunch of reasons why you are at fault for not being married …as if marriage was something you just bought at the store. I respect and care about women’s issues more than there is space to write about here.
