relationship advice for young bible college student?
Posted 14 October 2013 - 04:16 AM
But, I just hate when people come to bible college to find a husband/wife. This is Bible College, not Bridal College... But now I'm falling for someone.
I would never date someone that I don't have the intention to possibly marry in the future... and I'd really love to date him.
I'm so confused and I don't know how to act.
He's my evangelism partner, so I have some one-on-one time with him often, but I get nervous because I don't want to get rejected, or ruin things... I want to open up a lot more to him, and be his friend and sister in Christ most of all, but out of impulse, I cut the convos short.
Honestly, I feel like God is telling me to "loosen up" but I'm scared.
I'm just confused. Help?

Prayer and fasting may help. I have never experienced your situation, or even thought about it. I can see why you think it is a lack of focus, but also wonder if meeting a Christian to spend a lifetime with is a hidden blessing of bible college.

People do tend to meet in these circumstances
With the Lord leading you, you're already in the best hands anyway
Welcome and blessings!

I would say if you feel that God is telling you anything then you shouldn't ignore it!
If you are feeling guilty, and are trying to avoid the stigma of "bridal college" then why not invite this guy to something outside of school and church? this will signal to him that you are interested, and it will give you a chance to "loosen up" without having to worry about using your school for the wrong reasons. so go for it! If he is any kind of respectable christian guy, he won't let it ruin your existing relationship if he is by chance, uninterested. It sounds like you don't have a lot to lose! in fact, for a little more encouragement, Here is a secret about us guys: We are always flattered when a girl wants to spend time with us So ask him along to something, I don't know what your hobbies or interests are but use them as an ice breaker OR get some friends together, and invite him along. you'll just have create instances where you have an opportunity to interact with him and get to know him outside of school.
I hope this helped!
oh, and I'm sure you have already asked God and prayed for Guidance, but remember, if you ask, Don't ignore your answers. Always trust in God, and he will deliver.
Good Luck, and God Bless!

Hello Miaamor, and welcome to Worthy. Praying for you in this situation, but even though you are young I think God, may have already provide both of you with the desire: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12
