I can’t tell you how many girls I’ve talked to about their boyfriend or love interest and how they “don’t seem to be on the same page” when it comes to their faith but she cares about him or they’ve stuck it out for so long together and she thinks he can change. I also couldn’t understand more because I was that girl for six years. Needless to say, it completely fell apart. We have this attribute that genuinely wants to see the best in a person and hold onto that potential as our hope. I’d like to think we’re selfless, for the most part, but also to the point we don’t consider what’s good for us or even what God wants for us. We may even be insecure and blinded to the idea that we’ll ever have something better or true, so we settle for what we can get or the next person who gives us some “feel-good” attention and lose any sort of standard along with it. Maybe it’s not that serious yet, but there’s this guy or girl and, no they might not love Jesus like you or be as committed, but they’re nice and you believe they have the potential to “come around”. I get it. It’s hard to find good Christian men and women in this crazy, dysfunctional, unfaithful and disappointing world. But here’s the thing, you either believe God for your future or you don’t. If you don’t you will settle and fall short of his perfect plan for your future mate. If you do, you’ll trust that God is more than able to set apart the right person for you at the right time and trust His standards as a loving Father who looks out for His child.

It’s like water and oil. They can’t mix. They’re made up of completely different elements that oppose one another. In other words, they do not see eye to eye, they do not have the same make up or spiritual DNA, they do not relate to each other in the deepest sense, at the core, where it matters most.
