Today’s post is going to be slightly different. I don’t normally talk a lot about my dating life. I’ve been divorced for almost 2 years. After the divorce I asked God to keep all men away from me that were not good for me. Well I can certainly attest that He has held his end of the bargain.
During this same time God gave me a few rules for dating and until recently I thought they were good standards. However, this past week I actually thought about lowering those standards. I thought a man may really love God and not work at the church. While that is a true statement it does not fit with what I am looking for.
You see for me I need a man who is in love with Jesus as I am. I need a man that is willing to devote his professional and personal reputation on God. In the past week it has been very clear that I cannot bend these rules. I love Jesus with all that I am and any man who does not have the same drive for Jesus will not understand my life and will end up hating me. I know that this is true because that is one of the reasons that I am divorced.
I have a rule that I do not date any man who feels uncomfortable talking about his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
God is my motivation, my inspiration, and my greatest love. He is first on my list and no man will understand this pursuit I have of God unless they too are in that pursuit also.
A real man will love Jesus above all things.
A real man will pray for and with me.
A real man isn’t obsessed with the world’s view of beauty.
A real man knows that all of God’s commands are important and not mere guidelines.
This post is long over due. I always tell my friends I know I am searching for a custom made porsche in huge car lot. I’m not going to settle for less and I don’t want you to either. God has given us all great opportunities and gifts to glorify His kingdom.
If you have not found that man or woman of your dreams start being that man or woman of great character to show others what it looks like and follow God with your whole heart.
