So good to see this subject raised. If I could go back 20 odd years and knew what I know now I would have stayed clear of the dating scene.I would have kept my eyes on Jesus and if He wanted me to get married He would have made sure the ideal guy for me would have come along. If He didnt want me to get married then I would have been happy doing HIS will and not my own and trust that His plans are better than mine.
I would encourage any young person to do the same and in doing so they will save themselves a lot of hurt, a lot of repenting and a lot of damage.
Seek Gods kingdom 1st above all else, and that includes finding a partner.Many dont realise that until they lay down THEIR desire for a partner before God then actually they are placing an idol before Him.
For all those young people out there TRUST HIM. He loves you and if His plans are that you should get married let Him find your partner. He knows exactly who will love you just as you are.
