Do you have an ultimate end goal for “why” you are dating?
I was in the Book of James , and also back and forth from my book Good or God.
God led me to the self-bible study of being mindful of who leads you for a reason.
But do we ultimately know how we should be “properly” led according to God’s will for our lives?
Or are we going by what we see posted on Google or Bibleway.com?
I realize that a lot of the challenges that we all face today as singles, center around the confusion of intentionality.
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.
Relationships and dating are hard work ONLY if you choose to make it hard.
Are you just dating because you don’t want to be single?
Are you dating because everyone else around you has someone? I haven’t blogged since Mark’s birthday, and hadn’t plan on writing an entry until I was having a self-bible study on “not being misled and be mindful of who leads you”.
The bible said that, “Death and life are in the power of our tongues, and that whatever we speak shall be.” However, 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 look so much fun and exciting.
Commitment and intentionality are inadvertently being discouraged by increased opportunities to go on group dates and see members of the opposite sex without pursuit.
