How wonderful the Father’s love
The Father’s love for us
That He would send His only Son
To come and rescue us
Anonymous asked: How do I find the right girl for me?
Strive to become a Godly man. It is the only way to build long lasting relationships with who God intends us to be with. By continually seeking Him daily first and foremost through prayer, scripture, and in church community. Also, if you are asking this question, you are probably not ready for a relationship. These kinds of things require a lot of prayer, patience, and discernment. This is not an age thing or because everyone else is in one type of thing. It is something that God reveals to His people in timing and maturity. So if we are following God with ALL our heart, He will align the external and internal factors in our lives so that we will know when the calling of marriage comes. God desires us to have a firm foundation in Him before we think about dating which in time leads to marriage. The hearts of our sisters are important and beloved by our heavenly Father. Our sisters are His daughters of whom God blesses us as brothers with in accordance to His will in our lives. Relationships are a blessing and gift, nothing we even deserve. There is also no “right” or “perfect” girl for us because if we have that mentality then we will be disappointed when they don’t meet our expectations. Fall in love with her because she loves the Lord and made in His beautiful image. There is the one person God has called you to be with, that together you will be continually sanctified and conformed to the image of Christ every day in relationship. To keep covenant, model your relationship like Christ and the church, and walk in a manner worthy of the Lord. I know it is hard not knowing these things, but if God straight up told you who when and where, then there would be no real trust or reliance on Him. God wants our committed hearts and also wants to know that you will be able to take care of another person’s heart and ensure their salvation. It is something that I too am learning daily. Read Psalm 112 and keep those verses on your heart as a launching point in becoming a genuine man who fears the Lord. There are plenty of proverbs 31 sisters out there, but who is God calling you to be with? Continue to grow, find your direction and passion in life, and remember purity, purity, purity. Something that is really difficult for guys, but it is worth saving your heart for your wife in marriage.
