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.
I was and still am a believer but was not applying everything at that time. This book outlined detail for detail, scripture for scripture what I did wrong. It gave me the strength to not cave in even when that ex attempted to come back.
The book was thin 147 pages, which was good because my attention span was short.
At the time I read this book, I was emotionally unraveling after a bad relationship.
I was suffering from a really bad soul tie and I needed help.
You will not truly love anyone else if you do not love God first and most.
And no one will truly love you if they do not love God more than they love you.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 - Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.1 Peter 4:8 - And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Proverbs 3:5-7 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Like Jennifer, she needs some advice but is concerned about how she can make the transition into dating easy on her children. He'd like to date again, and some of his friends say he should start looking for a woman now — after all, he's getting divorced soon.
