He loves sports, travel, and music, but his passion is writing for God and lifting high the name of Jesus through his writing.
I was chatting with an old friend last night, and by old I mean that we have known each other for a very long time, and also that we are both feeling quite old, lately, because we have teenagers and that is a very aging malady.
So here goes: Your quality and purpose of life is not determined by whether or not you date or get married.
Always pursue God and health (spiritual, emotional, and physical) and you will be fine.
Some people date for many years, others date for months, or even weeks. If you cannot do that, then you should not be dating: it is not fair to either of you.
Like any relationship, dating and marriage should not be put into a box. Remember, you are trying to figure out if the two of you are a marriageable match. Your relationship is not so important that you cannot enjoy yourselves! Do romantic things, do normal things, do things together, and do things with your friends!
It will benefit all of your relationships, ministry, career, and potential marriage.
But last night we found ourselves discussing the latest bogeyman of raising not-yet-adults: .If you meet someone who you want to do life with or that God is laying on your heart to pursue romantically, then you will still be fine.Either way, the quality of your life is what you make it. In this article I am going to call it “dating” and define it as “the process of finding a spouse.” I do not claim to be an expert: I realize that many varying opinions about dating float around Christian circles jumping over each other, getting mixed together, and consuming some people.
You wish it could happen soon but it completely freaks you out. Some people call this dating, other people call it courting — there are likely countless terms you could use for the process.For instance, some people fall in love immediately and they have a smooth dating experience.
