They need to be inspired to think outside of themselves and provoked to care for and lead others. Pray that the Lord will give you wisdom to show appropriate love for them that will somehow encourage that very leadership they need to exercise. It may seem typical for me to tell you to pray and trust the Lord. Whether single, dating, or married, pray that your heart is bent on complementing God’s means for your holiness and not kicking against it.

Christian dating frustration

When I had dinner with a married girlfriend in her late 30s, she asked about my current, non-existent dating life.

I filled her in on some recent, very confusing behavior from a guy friend that was leaving me wondering if he was interested.

Being a single Christian in today’s world continues to be increasingly difficult.

It hurts my heart every time I hear one of my single friends say, “I’m enjoying being single right now.” If we’re not careful, those words can be decrypted to mean “I’m enjoying my life of selfishness.” Part of the reason many people are choosing a life of singleness is because some singles ministries make being single fun and exciting.

I’m not going to attempt to offer advice on how to attract attention.

But the fruit of trusting the Lord, a quiet spirit and a joyful submission to God's will, appeals to godly men.

They would rather know now, shed a tear or two and start working ASAP to move out, move up, move on or move forward so they don’t waste more time doing the same thing and not getting the outcomes they want. All your single girlfriends AND male friends should read this. Why can’t our wonderful Christian sisters find their Boaz, David or Joseph? Many Christian ladies want a man that “knows where he is going”…

but God’s men usually don’t have a clue: Think about that for a moment.

The standards of our culture leave us believing it is okay to date with selfish intent—to date without purpose, with no plan, without deliberate acknowledgement and respect for the other person’s feelings, heart and emotions.

Unfortunately, I fear the societal and cultural norms are becoming way too comfortable in the Christian dating scene as well.

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.
