‘He’s seriously so amazing, girl. He’s funny, he’s sweet, and he loves Jesus!’ I so excitedly confided in my best friend. Everything seemed perfect. What I didn’t realize was just how far from perfect it really was.
In a world where standards and morals are rare, it can be tough for a single pringle. Especially since good, Godly men are few and far between these days. So when you find one, it’s almost too easy to get too excited far too soon.
I was eighteen and in love with being in love. I learned two huge lessons that year. One, just because a guy loves Jesus does not mean he is the one for you. And two, just because a guy says he loves Jesus does not mean he does.
I know so many girls that think just because they meet a new guy who says he loves Jesus that they are going to get married. I’m not saying it can’t be that easy, but it’s not always that simple.
I know several guys who say they love Jesus and they don’t even really know Who He is. Can I just be real with you for a second? If a guy is telling you that he loves Jesus, but is trying to compromise your purity at the same time, RUN. If he is truly sold out to Christ like he says, then he will do whatever he can to heroically protect your purity.
I know it’s frustrating, and I know how hard it is to think you’ve finally found ‘the one’ only to be let down. No matter how limited you feel your choices are, NEVER drop your standards.
“Men with standards of their own aren’t intimidated by the idea of living up to someone else’s. If he says your standards are too high, chances are his are non-existent.” Lauren DeMoss, thefulltimegirl.com
I know it may not always seem like it, but there are still good guys out there. Awesome men of God do exist. Don’t believe me? Check out my post, A Godly Man, Who Can Find?
God has not forgotten you. He loves you so much. Trust that His plan is better than yours. And always remember, that you deserve His absolute best. Grow closer to Him each and every day.
You deserve a man who truly loves Jesus and backs it up with the way he lives his life every single day.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14
