“Are you looking to date anyone right now? I know a guy who’s interested in having a girlfriend”, one of my peers asked me. I looked down at my desk pretending to read over the notes I was just given. I said, “No, not right now.” To be honest, I didn’t know what to say. I know it would be nice to have a best friend around that I also had feelings for, but I also know my free time these days is very little, so if I were to date anyone, it would have to be someone I already know who understands this and is also just as busy. It takes a lot of time and effort to date someone who is new who you don’t know.
Even though this is true, now that I think about it, you never fully know someone. It takes a lifetime to get to know someone and it always takes an effort to love someone else. Am I ready to be selfless? Am I ready to take time out and reprioritize my life? Am I ready to serve him and love him as much as I can? That’s something I need to pray about. I’ve been noticing lately that I don’t come to him for that kind of a request. It seems odd to me that I would ask Him about my dating life. I guess it’s time to seek God for EVERYTHING, not just the spiritual and physical needs. I’m praying that God will help me recognize how else I can seek Him in my life.
