Give God a chance, for He is your provider (2 Corinthians 9:8) and is able to do abundantly above all that you could possibly ask or imagine (Ephesians ). Are you stringing a relationship along primarily because it has benefits: money, companionship, image, physical intimacy, fun, familiar routine?Let’s face it, we have all temporarily turned to everything from shopping to food for fulfillment. There is a difference in loving and being “in love” and fully committed to the person you KNOW you were meant to marry…for better or worse.When the right guy comes along, you will know, because there will be no doubt. If you are settling for an unhealthy relationship just to have a warm body near, you are missing the amazing indescribable intimacy God offers you; He will continue to politely step aside as you choose to accept less (Psalm ).
I could go on, and if you’re a part of almost any kind of Christian community, you probably can too.
Things--even relationships with benefits--can never truly satisfy (Colossians 3:2). You have to get out of the “love” boat to walk on the water. "Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water." "Come," he said.
They are shallow tools the enemy offers convincing you to wear a mask of contentment (John ; 1 Peter 5:8). What I mean is, you have to move away from the one you “love” and walk out into the unknown toward God patiently till He brings you your one, true love. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on water, and came toward Jesus.
