Choices are made all the time but when it comes to relationships, Christian singles have to be careful about dating choices. One simple choice can change your entire life (for good or ill). That’s why it’s so important to be careful when dealing with such life-changing choices. Don’t make the wrong choice!
Choices are made moment-by-moment in our lives. Some are very minor or perhaps insignificant, while others set things in motion for tremendous good or harm. Did you ever make a choice you wish you could take back? I can hear a loud positive response to that question!
A lot of consumers want to know about a product before they try it. Christian singles are no different! We’ve had many reviews of our service at ChristianCafe.com over the years. Here’s one from AskMen.com that just came out! Enjoy another Consumer Reviews for Christian Dating Sites.
Sometimes Christian singles feel they should pray for love but they’re not sure how they should pray, what words to use, or even if they should pray for a future spouse. We present a simple prayer for love that singles can use to help them to seek God’s guidance and help to find that special someone.
Should you pray a Prayer For Love?
If you feel the need to pray for love, for a future spouse, but you’re not sure what words to use, or what to say to God, we came up with a prayer for love to help Christian singles ask God for help into finding true love.
With this new blog post: “A picture is worth a thousand words”, we’re having our former members of ChristianCafe.com, Laura and Chad, speak a little about their “true love” story. We want to inspire other singles and have them become a part of our growing number of members who’ve started a relationship via our dating website.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
There’s nothing quite like writing a blog about how a couple who wouldn’t have met if it wasn’t for ChristianCafe.com! Such affirmation makes us, as mere people behind the scenes, as proud as we can be. We see God’s Hands in our daily work of helping match singles online.
With this wonderful testimonial (and thousands of others), we know that God has been working and guiding us since the inception of ChristianCafe.com. We see our Christian dating site as a tool for couples, just like Laura and Chad, to meet online.
Does prayer for a relationship work? Should Christian singles expect their prayers to be answered when they pray for a future spouse? Dr. Jim explains what singles should expect from their prayers and God’s answer (or not) to those prayers for relationship. Are our prayers being answered but we don’t see or can tell? Below is a great read for those looking for an answer to their prayers.
Why is my prayer for relationship not being answered?
God is complete and His Word is complete as well. There are some who suggest that if one prays hard enough and long enough, all of their troubles and challenges will be positively changed. Paul’s words in 1Thessalonians 5:17 states that we are to pray continually. (It also continues in verse 18 to give thanks in all circumstances.)
Our minds and hearts should always be in an attitude of prayer. What this means to me is that our Spirit should continually be seeking the Spirit of God in everything we think and do.
Some singles are skeptical about online dating but we beg to differ! There are several great reasons for you to check out and be part of one of the most successful dating websites. Here are some great insights about why Christian Online Dating is a great way for you to meet and connect with other Christian singles. If you try it, you might find marriage in the process!
Should You try Christian Online Dating
Many single Christians are not sure if they should try Christian online dating. Reasons can be:
- They’ve tried it in the past,
- Friends and family who have tried, keep telling them to give it a shot,
- Just never had a chance to try it,
- They’re too shy or embarrassed to try it.
Singles can get confused and not sure when and what should be shared with a potential mate they have just met. What is the best to share about your previous relationships, when and where is the best way to open up when starting a new relationship? Christians singles can get caught up with wondering if to be open in a first meeting is a good and Christian way to deal with new relationships. Dr. Jim explains what should be said (and when).
When and what is appropriate information to share when meeting someone?
The interaction between single adults when they are considering a potential relationship is a critical time. Each one desires to be on their best behavior and make their best presentation. It is also a time when each is hopeful that they are being given an accurate picture and can make a proper assessment. Is this the time to share everything about each other? What information should be shared?
A personality test is a great way for couples who are thinking about marriage to ensure that they are objectively perceiving and communicating in all major areas of their relationship. When searching for a better and more accurate information about your other half, having a personality test is a great way to find out the “success rate” for your future marriage. Dr. Jim explains why premarital counseling should be taken with such personality tests.
Is there a personality test or something similar that couples can take to ensure they are compatible?
An email was received this week stating that he understood that opposites are supposed to attract, but how does one know if they are too opposite? This is a great question. Some differences are healthy in a relationship, but too much, especially in significant areas, can be disastrous. How does one receive an accurate and objective feedback in the major areas of a relationship?
As a single parent, child safety is the highest priority that you should have when dating someone you’ve met online. Dr. Jim explains what a single parent should do when first meeting singles online and what can be done to protect children from potential child molesters. Get great tips about Internet Safety for single parents.
Internet Safety: How can I be sure that a man I meet online is not a child molester?
The safety of children is a high priority for every parent. I wish that I could report that every contact with someone via an online Christian service is with a confirmed mature Christian without any concerns for safety. Unfortunately, the risk is even greater in my opinion for you to meet someone who is not who they present themselves to be if you are using the Internet. You should be concerned about your personal safety as well as the safety of your children.
Dating after divorce. What does the Bible tell us about divorce? Should you date after a divorce? Dr. Jim explains God’s desires for us and what should we do when we start thinking about dating after being through a divorce. Who is allowed and who isn’t allowed to get a divorce according to the Bible?
Dating After Divorce: If I did not cause the divorce, can I date and marry again without being sinful?
Divorce creates many victims. It has become a terrible black eye on our society as divorce sweeps across the land like a forest fire. Almost every day this time of year we turn on our television sets to find another forest fire raging out of control. While I suggest that the damage is even greater in a divorce, it is not as ‘apparent’ or visible to us without taking a second look.
To be able to provide an answer to this question, I would like to begin with the foundation that the Bible provides to us. Matthew 5 and 1Corinthians 7 are the main passages that relate to divorce. The Matthew verses share that there is no grounds for divorce other than if the other spouse is unfaithful in the marriage. If this does occur, the other spouse has the ‘option’ to initiate a divorce.
