It became hard to find peace between the God that I loved and this aching, unmet desire to find a companion. It felt like God wasn’t listening, and I was discouraged that my life seemed stuck in a pit of hopelessness with no sign of movement anytime soon. This is then often backed up by a flurry of other comments: interested in the gospel and told me that my faith is something he/she finds really attractive and wouldn’t want to change at all.Once confessed, the problem isn’t recognition that they’ve sinned; the problem is the slow, painful process of repentance.
It felt like everyone I knew was married, including the kids I used to babysit.
There seemed to be 10 girls for every single available guy in church.
The Bible is clear that Christians should not have close friendships with non-Christians.
But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?
No matter how you choose to word it, being single was never in my plans.
