He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Luke 10:27

It’s hard being single. I use to find myself feeling lonely. Feeling is if I needed someone to fill a void in my life but as I grew closer to God that all changed. He replaced that loneliness with JOY. It reminds me of that song we use to sing in our youth choir as a child, ‘Have A Little Talk With Jesus’. I quickly found out the more I talked to Him the better I felt. I know now that through the failed relationships in the past they all had the same common mistake; God was not in them. I knew I never truly was happy but I continued to try to pursue them knowing something was wrong. Praise God for wisdom through failed attempts though…HALLELUJAH!! It took me many years and a lot of prayers to understand why my relationships were failing. So what I’m getting at is; no child of God deserves to be with someone who is not encouraging him or her to Christ. If a man or woman will not pray with you, worship with you or knowledge God with you what are you gaining from him or her? A relationship without God as the foundation is deemed to fail. You can not change the heart of any man or woman. Yes, we can try to encourage them but it’s up to them to put in the work to become the man or woman God created them to be. So if you are diligently seeking God’s will and your significant other has no intention of seeking him, what do you think you will gain from this relationship? A life of uncomfortable moments. Times when you not only doubt yourself but doubt God’s existence and we don’t want to take steps backwards. We want to move forward in faith. So, if he or she will not willingly chose Jesus to reign over their lives you need to re-exam this so call ‘love of your life’. He or she is not worth your salvation that Jesus freely gave to us at the cross!! We should refuse to compromise our salvation for anyone and trust in the Lord and His timing for our future spouse!!
