I’ve found that women having sex before marriage is often treated for some reason as a sin worse than others, it’s not.
There is always enough grace, God’s love does not alter when you have sex: The Christian Relationship Myth Finally, an actual Christian relationship is really not what you’d think!
Heartbreak is not impossible for Christians, and the first guy you try to date in a God honouring way might not be the guy, there might not even be a guy (there’s an excellent post on singleness here, sooooo worth checking out), but Relationships are both wonderful and testing, but the best way to do them will always be God’s way, whether we like it or not.
Your relationship with Jesus is ultimately far more important, but dating and marriage is a gift from God and if you listen to and follow what He says about it, it will be worth it!
I was once so into my faith and I was happy but since then I have drifted.
I believe in God but somedays that belief is stronger than others.
If you trust in Him and listen to what he says about relationships, He will work for your good.
Dating is complicated, tricky, testing and can be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Doing it right is flipping hard and requires some serious dedication.
Whenever I am thinking on or praying about relationships, mine or other peoples, this verse is always an excellent foundation.
God makes things work for your good, and that includes your dating life.
But again, I’ve done this wrong before, and believe me if you have a non-Christian boyfriend, sticking to this is a whole lot harder, and it causes huge amount of heartache and hurt.
God set this rule for a reason, and it’s too clear in the Bible to try and argue your way around it (me and my friends tried that one too!
I imagined that when I did meet and fall in love with the guy God had for me that it would be easy, that I’d be a fantastic girlfriend and that he would never let me down.
