I’m having a really hard time finding godly people to date. Where can I find them? FAQ Blog Series (Part 3)
Don’t be discouraged that you’re not finding a godly person to date. God sees your situation and knows the desires of your heart. Stay engaged in community, join different interest groups and continue to grow in your faith right where you are. Deepening your walk with God is the most important focus of your life, so keep it central to who you are.
The young adult years are a huge time of transition and finding your place in the world, so be patient. God is using this time to mold you and shape you to join Him in the work He’s prepared for you. A side benefit of this is that you will better understand what you bring to a relationship and the kind of person that would be a good match for you.
Knowing who you are in Christ will also ground you in whatever season of life you find yourself. I know this may be hard to believe but there are hard aspects to every season of life. Marriage is a beautiful thing but it also comes with its own set of trials. (more responsibility, divided focus, less time) You have advantages now while you’re single that you won’t have again. Make the most of this time and take advantage of the unique benefits right in front of you. (more time, undivided focus, less stressors because you have less people dependent on you)
Ultimately, don’t spend too much time focused on what you don’t have. Spend your energy being thankful for what God has already given you. Discontent people are not very attractive – grateful people are! By all means, keep your heart soft and your eyes open for when God brings someone into your life – but don’t stop living until then!
