Dating That Sets You Up to Be Successful In Marriage

Dating That Sets You Up to Be Successful In Marriage. Let’s get real for a second. Dating in 2020 is insane. The stories I hear about people dating and trying to navigate their own sin with social media, tinder and so many other things thrown about just amaze me.

I have been married for 6 years now and my wife and I have 3 kids. I am no marriage expert and I don’t claim to have it figured out. But what I do know is marriage reveals that God’s plans are much better than yours.

Marriage showed me a peace that I have not much in this world has brought me. Sometimes we read the Bible and hear what God desires for his people and frankly, we think we have something better figured out. We are arrogant like that!

I think God makes something very clear about how we should live before we are married but we venture off with our own ideas and plans. But it creates problems and these are problems that most people don’t want to deal with consequences of.

Understand That God’s Plan is Better

Know That Your Sin Will Catch Up With You

When I finished college I spent a bit of time doing some track and field coaching at the D1 level. I was not sure if that was what I wanted to do so I was testing it out. I will never forget how many abortions ladies were having on the team.

Then I thought back to my time in school and it made sense of so many situations and my heart broke for all parties involved. I remember thinking, man that sin is going to catch up with you one day.

It’s common now for people to drag a bunch of sexual sins into their marriage. Take it from me personally, you will have to address this. You will not just when walking into a relationship different than God’s original design and not have to address these issues.

Please remind yourself of this when you sin. It has to be addressed. You’re going to need to confess that sin, talk about and work through it, or else is just going to hurt you. Then imagine being in a relationship with someone else with a bunch of hidden sin that has never been addressed. It’s tough stuff.
