Our relationship ended after she wrote me a letter telling me she thought I was the one for her, and I told her I wasn’t. Our focus even as good Christian kids was on each other and not on God and how we were to be obedient to Him in His service. The girl I dated for 15 months was a great girl and a strong Christian, but we were not equally yoked.
As a young Christian girl, you should focus on Christ; focus on His call on your life to follow Him. You need to be content with serving and obeying Christ. As you seek the Lord and focus on Him, if you are to be married, the Lord will put the perfect man for you in your path.
Seek to understand what that means for each one of you. You must not seek to find your fulfillment in a man. You should be able to see him in several different roles and know that you would be best yoked with that one man while on this earth.
What I was doing with this new girlfriend was taking my eyes off of God and focusing on the really pretty girl.
Well, this really pretty girl and I made out a lot … There were some moments when we got far too close to a line that should not be crossed until marriage.
How you will give your time, money, and energy in service to the Lord?
