Recently I have been in some situations where I have desired to reach out to members of the opposite sex, young men who have seemed lonely, upset, or just in need of a Savior. If I ever saw a girl in this state, I would jump on the opportunity to reach out to her. But it’s so different with guys. How do I reach out to the opposite sex without them thinking I’m romantically interested?
I feel like I’m at a point where I want nothing to steal my affections for Jesus, and if anything was, I would cut it off ASAP. That being said, there’s a young man at my church with whom I’ve started to build a friendship, and I’m getting the feeling that he’s interested in me, and is maybe considering furthering our friendship. Oddly enough, this terrifies me! He’s a great man of God, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m called to singleness, because I don’t ever want my affection for Christ to be divided. I guess my question is, am I looking at this the right way? And is it okay for me to be so protective?
I’m so disgusted with the way most guys today act. I am usually sarcastic and demeaning toward every guy in my life. I sometimes feel bad about it, but am I really supposed to treat them with respect when they don’t deserve it?
I have a question that has been torturing me for days. How does one deal with the doubt that Satan whispers in our ears? Having recently turned my life around for my Savior, his voice has been debilitating. I will not back down from my path, but the doubt is eating at me.
I just recently went back to school and I had spent my whole summer with Jesus. But it seems like now that I’m in school I barely have time. What would you recommend doing to have time with Him, and how can I live a set-apart life for Jesus even at my own school?
I have been reading some Christian books that say a woman who is called to be married will never truly be content or happy until she finds her husband, because humans were designed for companionship. Do you agree with that idea?
