Dating non believer
How you will give your time, money, and energy in service to the Lord?
Are you both fine with living by faith and not have any real plans except to follow the Lord?
Our relationship ended after she wrote me a letter telling me she thought I was the one for her, and I told her I wasn’t. Our focus even as good Christian kids was on each other and not on God and how we were to be obedient to Him in His service. The girl I dated for 15 months was a great girl and a strong Christian, but we were not equally yoked.
I had been called into ministry a year and a half earlier, and I knew that she would not give me the support I would need in ministry. The bottom line from that story is DO NOT WASTE your time, emotions, money, and most of all your heart on someone who is not a Christian. She completely withdrew from me, which really hurt. It seemed like the Lord was restoring our relationship. I don’t remember consulting the Lord on that decision either. She had a completely different way she wanted to live her life than I did when it came to serving the Lord.
When you do meet that man someday that you connect really well with … Pray that he will grow and be transformed every day into the likeness of Christ.
Ask God now to prepare you and your future husband for the time when you will be wed.

What I was doing with this new girlfriend was taking my eyes off of God and focusing on the really pretty girl.
Well, this really pretty girl and I made out a lot … There were some moments when we got far too close to a line that should not be crossed until marriage.
If they don’t have a relationship with Christ, you shouldn’t be yoked to them. Before I left for camp that summer, I gave her a Bible and she gave me a journal and we said goodbye. She had made plans for where she wanted to live, what she wanted to do 15 years down the road, and I still have no idea what I’ll be doing after I graduate from college or when I’ll graduate.
I went off to college and told all my buddies, “I’m going to find a nice Christian girl and get married to her.” Well, I meet a girl my freshman year who was really sweet, loved the Lord, and liked doing fun stuff. I prayed about it a few weeks later, and God told me I had jumped the gun and that we should break up. I thought all I needed to do was get to know her and once I knew her pretty well that we could date with the idea in both of our heads that the end result would be marriage. The point I am trying to make here is that even when a guy is a strong Christian at a similar maturity level as you are, there are other factors that must be considered such as your views on spending and saving money.
