I’m Trying To Keep God As My #1 Priority

Submitted by on October 10, 2012 – 3:08 pmNo Comment

I like this guy that is 3 years older than me, and I see him quiet a bit but we don’t talk. I would talk to him but I get so shy especially around older guys. I don’t think he would ever like me and I feel like he would deserve someone better than me because he’s a strong committed Christian and I stray alot.

I also kind of feel like I just “know” he’s going to either influence my life or be in my life for a while. I feel like God wants me to talk to him. But I’m just speechless.What should I do? Also I don’t want to get a big crush on him because I’m trying to keep God as my #1 priority and I’m spending a year on working on my relationhip with God and I’m afraid a guy would be a distraction.

What’s your opinion? Thanks :)

My opinion is that I think you should follow the Spirit of God and what He is showing you; to keep your eyes on God and keep Him as priority. Focus on spending time with Him and falling in love with Him even more. Everything else will fall into place in your life as you work on getting to know God more and more. (Matthew 6:33, Romans 8:28)

You don’t need to look for a guy. The guy that God has for you will come to you. He will make your paths cross and He will work out the details. Our Father is the perfect match maker because He knows what we need and what we want and gives us a balance of both.
Here are a couple of articles I think will help you as well as a category with different articles that may also speak to you in your situation:

The first article is called ‘Mission For Mr. Right’

This second one is called ‘The Dating Prayer’

http://www.weusedtobeyou.com/2011/09/23/the-dating-prayer/

Here’s the category. We called it ‘Dating God’s Way’

One last thing I must address with you. This guy that you are are crushing on does NOT deserve someone better than you because you stray alot. You are the perfect girl for the guy that God has for you, and it’s not because you are not good enough for this particular guy. He is not holier than you. He may currently be more mature in his faith, but that doesn’t make him better than you; deserving better than you. We are still growing in our faith and maturity in Christ and EVERYONE makes mistakes and falls short, NO ONE has arrived to perfection in their faith and never will on this side of heaven. (Romans 3:23-34, Philppians 3:12)

You are a beautiful child of God and God wants to bless you with good things. He has promised you this in Jeremiah 29:11. He has a good plan for you. Plans for good and not for evil, plans to prosper you. Believe it and allow him to do it.

Don’t ever feel that you are not good enough for someone. You are perfect for the man that God has for you and he will be perfect for you; and even though you are both imperfect you will still be perfect for each other.

Focus on your relationship with Christ Jesus and let Him continue the good work that He has started in your life. Your time for a relationship will come in due season sweet sister. You are on the right track, stay close to God and don’t allow yourself to be distracted. (Philippians 2:13, Ecclesiastes 3:1)
