Searching, Dating & Friends…
Finding friends is much like dating. If you go out looking for “Mrs. Right” or “Mr. Right”, you probably won’t meet him or her, but if you wake up each day with the goal of being “right” Mr. & Mrs. Right will find you.
This sounds so simple but so many of us singles are still searching and making life complicated.
We’re searching for validation, acceptance, love, good-breaks, and a “come-up” through a relationship. When we don’t find these things, we often feel discouraged and lonely nevertheless we continue to engage in the search.
The thing I like most about the quote listed above is that it encourages contentment and kindness. It encourages us make the most of every season in our lives by being good to others. It also encourages us be good to ourselves and love ourselves by being kind and loving others.
If you’re single and you’re hoping for love in the near future, try being “love.” Treat others with love and gentleness in all that you do. Search for what’s right in others and at the right time, Mr. & Mrs. Right will find you.
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. (Romans 10:12)
