If only he had a passion for Christ like I do. If only he was saved like me. If only he would read the bible like I do. If only he would pray like I do. If only he would attend church like I do. If only he had a relationship with Christ like I do. If only he had a desire to be saved and sanctified he would be perfect. Listen up single Christian ladies it is God’s intent to bless you with a PARTNER not a PROJECT.
Jeramiah 29:11 NIV states:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
It is not Gods’ will to have us unequally yoked.
2Corithians 6:14 NIV states
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
By no means am I saying that your MR. Right is going to be 100% Right when you met him. What I am saying is to think about where you are in your walk. If you want someone who is going to compliment your walk and help push you closer to God then he should have some kind of foundation as well. How can someone push you closer to a God they have no relationship with? If you are with someone you obviously would want them to spend time with you. If you spend a great amount of time at church, or serving you would want them to as well. It doesn’t profit you to go to church and spend the whole time thinking about the man you left at home. You will not enjoy yourself or place yourself in a position to receive what you need out of service when your thoughts are distracted.
Christian Single Ladies we must do better. We can not continue to pray until we pass out and continue to cry ourselves to sleep at night over a man who has no desire to be on the same page as us. We can not trick ourselves into believing if I just pray enough, live right enough, love hard enough he will change. We can not compromise on what we believe in our heart just so it can make sense in our head. We can not continue to be torn between satisfying a man and serving God. We must do better.
