The joys of dating
He captures our into his goal and plan for our life: to make disciples who love him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. Will we trust him, even when we want something else for ourselves?
If our heart is not there — if our soul is not already safe through faith, if our mind is distracted and focused on other, lesser things, if our best strength is being spent on the things of this world — jobs, sports, shopping, entertainment, relationships, and on God — we simply will not date well. Listen to Jesus, and “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Seek him first (Matthew ), and dating will be added according to his perfect plan and timing. It’s not the first rule, but I have found that it is a “golden rule” that most often makes the difference between healthy and unhealthy Christian dating relationships.

So, then there were four ladies, drinking in a cute little pub around a fireplace.
That was my favourite part of the whole night, because it was genuine and fun, and I was with people who valued me. This was the best date I’ve ever been on in my life, because friendship is the best kind of companionship there is.
I could go on, and if you’re a part of almost any kind of Christian community, you probably can too.
