Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
What if you took a break from dating? Do you think you’d be content to simply wait until the right person comes along?
Most people will say, of course you can be happy not dating! They’d probably even say you could be happy being single for life.
But what about those who have a deep ache inside?
Those with a yearning and searching heart for marriage?
Do they really get to feel joy amidst their singleness?
Even if you’re hoping to marry one day, you can be happy being single and not dating.
In fact, dating itself has the potential to be a grueling journey, which was actually a part of my story for three years where I dated men to fill a void and alleviate feelings of abandonment.
The grueling journey involves the restless heart, the hopeless soul and someone who isn’t truly filling their soul up with God instead of the pleasures of the world.
It brings heartache, sorrows, disappointment and disaster to your life. You rarely feel happy because your life isn’t “complete” without someone, right? I discovered the hard way that that’s the wrong mindset to have.
