Hey! 
I haven’t had the greatest luck with guys. They either manipulate me in some way and none of them were ever Christian even though I am. But I have looked for love in the wrong places and I have gotten to a point where I have handed my whole love life to God, in knowing that He will bring the right guy into my life someday. A month ago i prayed to God and told Him everything weighing on my heart. In that prayer I also prayed for a man of God, someone who loves Jesus more than he loves me so that I know I am in good hands. So after my time with God I had this calmness in me it was amazing and I felt like i had to share it on the app Instapray (where people can pray together) I posted: “quite time with God is beautiful” and within a few minutes I got a response from a young man. He told me that he knew God would bless me in more ways than I can imagine. His words were so kind! And after that we started talking and became friends on Facebook. We now talk everyday. Unfortunately he lives in Colorado and I live in Washington state but hecjust turned 21 and I am 18. We pray for each other and our friendship is so centered around God! We both like each other but he is very respectful and isn’t pushy towards me or anything, we talk as friends who both love Jesus…I have NEVER have had a friendship with any guy like this. One time he even apologized for appearing too flirty but that he admired my pure heart and how evident God is in my life and that it was amazing for him to see. When I talk to him I feel close to God..it’s incredible! He loves Jesus!! and has traveled all over the world (even Israel) to spread the love of Jesus!! Actually he is leaving for Europe for 2 weeks for a mission trip which he is so so excited for. Oh! And I was adopted when I was a baby and turns out his mom and sister were too!!!! There are all these little things that tell me that God answered my prayer, but He answered it so quick, I just hope I am not over thinking this friendship but I pray about it every night because it is very special to me. I know that with God all things are possible but I am so used to getting my heart broken that I am afraid it will happen again, especially with this young man who has become such a close friend to me. And I keep asking God what His purpose for sending this man into my life and that He will tell me in some way soon…I am worried for the worst because something always seems to go wrong with guys in my life but deep down I also feel like with this guy it’s different…but I wanted to share this with you because I know God is faithful and I am still in awe with all of this…it has been such a blessing!! Being patient for Gods answer is hard for me but I know Gods timing is always perfect.

Q: Hello:) I'm an 18 year old guy. I am interested in your point of view in something. So, I have a desire to be married, but the thing is I feel like there are no girls around who come close to passionately, with fire, want to follow Jesus as I do, sure there are those who love God, but those who would give ANYTHING, and this is what I find truly attractive (of course looks matter too :D) I find if I don't have someone like this, that person would only slow down my calling. What do you advise?:)

Hello!

You and I are on the same path as if we don’t find someone like this, that person would only slow down our calling. Of course looks matter too haha, but spiritually attractiveness is much more attractive, as we also both agree. 

Keep waiting bro. You don’t want to settle for mediocrity and then your dream girl walks by. Nor do you want to settle for mediocrity or even less than mediocrity and dim your lights, live not as happily, know God isn’t as pleased, live knowing that you didn’t wait, and compromise the condition of your heart & joy. There’s just too much at stake. 

The wait is not easy, but it’s also not burdensome. When she comes, oh my, it would all have been so worth it. Perhaps she’s already waiting for you

Q: There's this guy I met, he's crazy for God & I find that super attractive. I think he's into me, but I keep telling myself no...he asked for my number the first time we met, he's been wanting to hang out, blowing me kisses from a distance LOL he's pretty awesome overall, but he's leaving to a different city for good in a few weeks. I don't know if I should keep seeing him or I'll start liking him, get attached & I already know he's gonna leave. What should I do? Distance myself from him ?

Hey!

This depends on you. What would you rather have? Begin liking him, get attached, already knowing he’s gonna leave. As you mentioned. Or distance yourself? 

Whichever you decide Proverbs 4:23 - Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Your heart is so cherished, so invaluable, it doesn’t have to feel what you don’t want it to feel, and it does feel what you want it to feel. Do what would honor God and overall yourself in the future. Do what is right. Be wise. Keep praying Love

Q: Hii! This is a tad embarrassing but I think I'm developing a little crush on my youth pastor... He's 8 years older than me though... do you think it's just a phase? He's everything I look for in a guy... and if he was my age that would've been ALOT better but idk...I'm 16 btw! Ahaha

Hey!

This is definitely a phase. You are right, if he was your age and not your youth pastor things would have been alot different. It’s awesome that you’re attracted and into a character whose heart is after God!

Since He’s your pastor, it’s best to honor that he has been placed in authority by God over you. To watch over you, and lead you towards the good Shepard, as he, your pastor is a shepard himself.

Q: To the anon who messaged about worrying: in the bible, the phrase 'do not fear' is used 365 times- once for every day of the year, a reminder that God is with you every single day. "Do not be afraid, I am with you always". I struggle with worry as well. One of the verses my mother brought to my attention was: "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline" (2 Timothy 1:7) it has helped me so much and I hope it helps you too! xo

Q: Do you have any advice on how to combat anxiety? Because I struggle with it and school is staring again soon and that usually doesn't help matters.

1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Psalm 55:22 - Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

Darlin’, it’s no accident these two are similiar, and are spoken by God. Literally, all you have to do to combat anxiety is to cast your anxiety, and cast your cares on the Lord, He cares for you, He is willing to take your daily burdens on Himself that you don’t have the weight of them anymore. 

How does one cast all their anxiety and cares on Him? The way you share your anxiety with a dear friend. By talking to Him, having the confidence and hope that your vulnerability is safe with Him, trusting that He indeed means what He says, and will do what He says.  He never fails, and He won’t start now. It’s this easy Dear.

Q: This isn't really about dating but I need help. What do you do when you can't sleep at night because you're so worried and scared all the time? I've been struggling with fear for years and I can't take it anymore. Please help

1 John 4:18- The is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Believe in your heart, trust with all your strength, have hope that this perfect love is capable of casting out your fears. Perfect love is capable of casting it all away. With this love, fear does not exist. This love doesn’t depend on us. All you have to do is receive this truth, rely on it, as our lives depends on it. Keep praying about it. And rest that it has been done 

I’ll be praying for you Love

Q: i've been struggling with lust... can u give me any advice

Hey!

Examine truthfully what is the cause of lust in you, could it be by being with your friends, content of shows/music/books that you immerse yourself in. Whatever it may be, pray about it, that indeed nothing has a stronghold on you. Then

2 Timothy 2:22” Run from temptations that capture young people. Always do the right thing…”

Run from whatever is causing you to lust, whilst you pray and mediate on the word. Romans 12:2 he tells us, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds.”

That way you may become more and more like Christ. We never stop becoming like him. Being more like Him transforms our mind, heart, body, into what is good. And He is the definition of good.
