It’s a beautiful gift and at the same time a hard gift.I don’t want to pretend to understand it except by proxy because my time of singleness was short-lived.
One of my favorite types of conversations though is talking to single men and women about how to wade past the emotions to examine the heart and character of a potential spouse.My husband and I also love to sit with dating and engaged couples and talk about the reality of marriage.For example, work, his or her family, hobbies, pop culture, and favorite music are all surefire bets. If you’re savvy, you’ll realize that certain questions–even the most basic ones—have the ability to tell a lot about a person. Four things to ask her or him about on a first date? Here, we’ve divided your hypothetical first date into five phases and suggested a series of questions to ask your date during each. There were flaws and red flags he didn’t notice, but I wanted to change the world for Christ with him. I was seemingly submissive to spiritual leadership.
I could talk the talk about the Bible and faith when I needed to. If you won the lottery tomorrow, what’s the first thing you’d buy? If you could be any person for a day, who would it be? But Bobby and I both agree we would not recommend someone marrying or dating a woman like who I was due to not being ready to minister and serve others soon after we got married.My journey of discipleship has been fraught with sin, and Bobby has taken a heavy load in living out Christ for me day in and day out.Marriage will reveal sin even in the godliest of newlywed couples, but because of the shallowness of my faith, marriage started and stalled out as particularly rough for us.
