I had a book recommended to me entitled How to Get a Date Worth Keeping by Dr. Henry Cloud. I have looked into this book, but with great hesitation. I don't want to date, just to date. But this book brings up some good points that go against my I Kissed Dating Goodbye mentality.
Have I really kissed dating goodbye or do I hide behind the fact that I don't date because no one asks? Am I in places to meet my "future husband"? How can I meet someone to marry if I don't even meet new people.
Cloud's book brings up the point that God is not going to send us a husband from heaven air stamped in His Timing. We have a role in our circumstances and need to do our part.
I still have more to discover from this thought provoking stance on dating. I have a feeling this will be an interesting read. I will keep you updated.
My goal as of right now is to continue to discover who I am in Christ and find joy in His presence. I am embracing my season of singleness one step at a time. I know God has a plan and a purpose for this time in my life.
