Dare to dream? Do you know how to expand your possibilities?
Many years ago I was sitting in the office of my Pastor discussing a variety of topics relating to our church. I was the lay leader for this year as well as the owner of an independent insurance agency. The conversation turned to what was I thinking about for my future. At the age of 35 years old my life had already been a great personal success and I was not giving much thought to the future.
Online Dating is a great way to meet and start relationship with other Christian singles. But is online dating ok with God? Is online dating good for Christian singles who are looking for a Christian mate, including to start a family? Dr. Jim shows how the Internet can be a great tool (or a bad one) for those looking to meet true love online.
Does the Bible approve of online dating?
Does God approve of one using online dating to try to find a mate? Does He want us to take the initiative in finding someone?
The modern world is a very interesting one to say the least. Several years ago we thought that technology would make our lives easier and we would have more spare time to kick back and enjoy life. It seems to me that with each ‘enhancement’ that technology has brought to our lives, it has brought a new set of circumstances and challenges.
When singles are looking for someone to help, they’ll look for Christian dating advice, or search for tips on how to handle difficult situations, or the best way to deal with a potential relationship. Dr. Jim presents below some dating advice for Christian singles on how to handle these situations. Who is the best person for you to look for when you need help?
Who do you go to for Christian Dating Advice?
Life often presents challenges that are beyond our experience. When you find these occasions confronting you – where do you turn for advice? This may seem like a strange article for one who gives advice to write. I suggest that it is actually one of the more important articles that I could possibly present. Everyone wants to share advice, but is it the advice that is best for you?
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?
