And that I will get the career that God has set for me. That it's there and that I will apply and get it. I'd like His grace. Thank you for your time. <3 I hope your having an amazing blessed day.

Hey, I certainly will pray, keep on putting your trust in God! 

Anytime. I am thank you. God bless. 

Today is already a struggle

meant-to-live-free:

It is taking every ounce of effort to not burst into tears.

Let’s lift her up in prayer! Crying isn’t a bad thing either, if you need to cry, then cry. There’s no shame in that. 

Anonymous asked: Hey there! So I've got a problem.. as a Christian girl, is a man who's not (yet?) saved okay? B/c I'm really worried right now, there is a guy and we like each other a lot, but he is not a christian. But can love be a bad thing? on the other hand the bible says we should not have a relationship with someone who does not believe and that it is even okay to divorce when you convert and your partner not.. so what is your opinion on that? Thanks a lot! :) be blessed!

Hey anon! 

It’s an interesting question, especially because the word ‘dating’ is not in the bible, which is normally one of the first ports of call for any Christian! Dating is permitted. Some would say that just because it is permitted doesn’t make it the best option or mean you should do it. 

Ultimately, my advice is (this is getting predictable), wait on it, pray on it, think on it. God knows what’s best for you as He knows you, I don’t want to comment on a relationship I hardly know. 

I do however, think that it is often hard for a Christian to date/marry a non-Christian because the Christian will put God first and since Jesus is fundamental in that person’s life, the non-Christian may not think the balance is correct.

Each one has a slightly different take on the matter. 

I’ll be praying for you. 

God bless. 

Anonymous asked: Hello. As of late, I've been desiring a partner in my life. I'm a 20 year old woman who has never had one before, and has never dated or such because I was never interested and I always considered myself too young for it. Of course, being a Christian myself I'd want him to be a Christian as well but then I wonder whether or not this is meant for me or if I am meant to remain single. It's been bothering me for a short while and I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks :)

Hey there anon, thanks for asking. 

My advice is to pray! Be patient and just let God do His thing. My motto seems to be think on it, pray on it, wait on it, and that’s my advice to you. If it’s the right thing, then God will have created the man for you! If not, then it’s also the right thing! Either way, God’s will is what’s best for you also trust and rejoice in His decision. 

Keep waiting too. Don’t do a kneejerk sexual thing or anything. I don’t want you to anything you regret. If you do meet someone, keep waiting and praying too. 

I hope this helps. 

God bless.
