Being a Christian and dating, it’s complicated. Being a Christian and not dating, it’s easier. Right?
Locking your heart up and throwing away the key is safer, you need to guard that thing. Life taught me that all of the ‘signs’ in the world didn’t mean a thing when the guy in church who I thought (and all my friends thought) I would end up with introduced me to his new girlfriend.
Then there were the guys who I felt safe with, you know the ones you could be open and chilled with because there were no feelings, it was purely platonic – on your part. Eventually, they confess they’ve been harbouring feelings for you and are offended you don’t feel the same and hello complicated!
So what is a single sister to do? How do we navigate this season of our life with a heart of expectancy, but not thirst? How do we guard our hearts, while being open to the right relationships at the right time?
We trust God, not with elements of a singlehood but all, without reservation. We trust when He closes the door, we trust when He tells us the object of our affection is not His best for us. There’s one thing the years have taught me; to run after God and leave the search for a partner to Him because honestly. He knows best.
