She will have no fear of bad news; her heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. (Psalm 112:7)

don't be in a hurry

So many young women I talk to feel that the moment a guy shows interest in them, they are in an “urgent” situation and need to make a quick decision. This exposes their desperation; their fear that if they don’t jump on a good opportunity, they’ll miss their only chance for true love. It shows a lack of faith in the Author of romance. Remember that if His plan for you is marriage, He is more than capable of keeping a guy’s interest, even if it takes months or years for you to finally give him the go-ahead. A man who is truly worth his salt knows that you are worth the wait, and won’t put pressure on you to make a quick decision. Jacob worked for Rachel for fourteen years and they seemed “but a few days for the love that he had for her.” (Gen. 29:20-28)
..
If God truly desires a relationship to happen, you don’t need to rush or feel pressure to open the door to a guy. When a guy shows interest, the first thing to do is spend an ample amount of time in prayer and seeking Godly counsel. I don’t just mean praying for a day or two. I mean diligent, persistent seeking of God’s wisdom and heart for the situation. Ask His Spirit to show you whether this is truly His highest and best for your life. Remember that, other than your decision to come to Christ, the decision of who you marry is the most important one you will ever make. It will affect you for the rest of your life. It’s not something to take lightly.
..
It is extremely dangerous to just “experiment” with relationships to see if you really like a guy or not, giving your heart to one person after the next in an attempt to find the right one. When God builds a relationship, He brings one man and one woman together for the rest of their lives. He is able and willing to guide you into His perfect plan for this area of your life without taking you through a handful of failed relationships and broken hearts.
..
He is able and willing to write your love story in such a way where you give your heart to only one man – the man you will spend the rest of your life with. But most of us don’t trust Him enough to allow Him to do that for us. We feel the need to rush into a relationship so that we don’t lose a guy’s interest, and all too often we end up broken-hearted and damaged as a result. If there is a potential relationship in your life, the best first course of action is this:
..
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Prov. 3:6 NKJV)
If you slow down and take the time to really seek Him, you can be sure that He will direct and guide you. There is no reason to ever take a step forward in a relationship unless you have complete peace and certainty in your heart – a certainty not based on your own emotions, but on hours of spending time in God’s presence and seeking His heart and wisdom.
