I have to ask this question because it’s important. Would you date a man that love God more than you? Would you be jealous of your man’s relationship with God? Some ladies say that their man has to put them over friends and even family. Does this goes for his relationship with God? Well I am here to say you better let your man love God more!!
I have dated men who didn’t know God or had little relationship. I was married to my first love. He was not a Christian at all. But I was a Christian a woman. It was not easy but over time my husband did give his life over to God. Nothing was perfect but he had his relationship with God. He passed away tragically eight years ago. So yes I am a Widow. I will share that story in another post. As a woman who is ready to marry again, would I want to marry someone who is already rooted in God and love God more then he do me? The answer is yes!!!
Here are my reasons. First of all, a man that love God will know how to love you. When your man read the bible, he will see that it says in Ephesians 5:28 ” In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their bodies, for a man is actually loving himself when he loves his wife!” That is amazing! I would love a man that honors God’s word and cherish his family. Also 1 Timothy 6:11 says “But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith ,love, endurance, and gentleness!” I love that God has instructions for the men and we definitely need men like this in the world today.
When times are tough, what will your man do? for me, I would want a man that pray daily! When life get in the way and we need some faith, my man will lead me to the word and read Hebrews 12:2 “let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning it’s shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” Who wouldn’t want a future husband getting into that word and have you pray along with him!
I am not saying I want a man that is so into God that he forget about his family. There has to be a balance between the word and the family. We can’t be too holy where you forget to live life that God blessed us with. Overall I want my future husband to be a man of God who will pray for his family and for himself. I want him to know how to love his wife as she will know how to love her husband. I am not saying if you are not a Christian then you are not capable of being that rock that your future wife needs. But I am saying that I want to share my life with someone who believe in God and has Him at the center of his life. To attend church and be amongst those who believe as we do. To have my kids grow up seeing loving parents that both love the Lord is important.
I pray that this helps my future wives in any way. If you happen to meet someone who may not believe but you feel like God is saying that he will be saved then let that be your journey. God as different plans for his children and I love how we all meet our mates but in different circumstances. I want my man to be a warrior for God and that for me is the best quality he can have!
