In my last blog post, I shared my experience about dating a non-believer and how I thought our relationship would succeed despite us having different spiritual beliefs. When you’re dating someone, you want to be on the same page about everything else, right? So why should it be any different for spiritual beliefs?
Being unequally yoked DOES NOT work!
I never understood what unequally yoked meant until I experienced it in my last relationship; it’s something that I don’t wish to experience ever again. Many women (myself included) tend to believe that good men are so scarce that we have to lower our standards. Sometimes men and women don’t know what they really want (or look for) when dating so they play it by ear: “She drinks but she’s really smart and funny…but I hate that she always smells like vodka! Maybe I can overlook that…after all, she can still function!”
It’s time to let God choose our mates. He knows what we truly need; the superficial things that some of us want in a spouse (six pack abs, money, flashy cars, etc.) will not help or satisfy us. Just because a person has all of those things doesn’t mean that he/she will know how to treat you. God will not put you with someone who will hurt you or disrespect you nor will He put you with someone else’s husband or wife! Waiting can be a frustrating process but it can refine you and protect you in the end. When God shows that you are valuable and worthy, you will refuse to settle for less.
