Dating goodbye quotes
Marriage is supposed to help us to give the best parts of ourselves to the best possible mate.If we give it all away through defective dating for someone who is not “the one” then what will we have left to give in the future in marriage?For those who thought that they had been touched by the same star, it can be devastating enough to seek professional help, which may be a solution.Here are some quotes and some thoughts on a relationship's end.
I know that God will provide me with “the one” when the time is right…(e.g.- when I am ready for marriage).As I dealt with my third failed relationship in a two-year time period I began to wonder, “What is wrong with me? ” Some of my friends began suggesting books to help me to deal with the breakup and simply get over it since after 2 months of being dumped I still wasn’t feeling any better. Now is a time to be single, but singleness isn’t always a bad thing. I like how Harris explains that God gives us the gift of singleness. Being able to take care of a partner, truly understanding each other, having the finances, and the blessings from family.I liked their suggestions but one book kept coming back to my memory…a book a friend suggested after breakup #1…Joshua Harris’s When I mentioned wanting to read this book I was surprised to find that one of my friends had it and was more than willing to lend it to me. But I like going out with dates…I like relationships when things go well…but that doesn’t seem to happen much… As a Christian, this is not what I should strive for. Until that time we should view the opposite sex as brothers or sisters in Christ.As soon as I borrowed it and began reading it I fell in love with it. As I read Harris’s book I realized that what I was doing is what he describes as “defective dating”. Simply put, I shouldn’t even be worrying about dating at all. We should support them in their relationships with Christ and make sure that we do nothing to distract them from their missions. It is nearly impossible to be completely pure, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive for a life of purity until marriage. We need to learn to be patient and trust in him to provide us with marriage when the time is right.Society tells us we should date around, not take things too seriously, and not worry about commitment. Purity in Harris sense means so much more than just abstaining from sex. That seems to be the hard part…trusting God’s perfect timing.
