God and online dating
"I mean, if I sign up for a dating site and pay a company to help me find my future wife, doesn't it mean I'm not trusting God to do that for me?
" "That's a good question, Bryce," his pastor responds.
Have I truly given Him permission to show up in my profile and in my messages?
He's devoted in his faith and eager to find a woman who shares his heartfelt values.You can find my face, height, interests, and a quick summation of my irresistible wit on no less than five sites. It brings out something especially judgmental in me. I make hasty decisions when I learn things that it might take me weeks to learn about someone organically.But just last week I deleted those dating apps from my phone. If I’m honest with myself, I bring those apps back when I’m lonely, I need some affirmation, or if I’m just plain bored. In the first moments of discovering a profile, things that aren’t dealbreakers for me in “real life” suddenly become grave issues.One reason why the number of people online dating continues to grow has to do with the word “dating” and not so much the “online” part.Aren’t we all looking to make that special connection with someone?
