Spiritual intimacy in dating accomodating special need students

While it’s rarely quick or convenient, gaining the perspective of people who know us, love us, and have great hope for our future will always pay dividends.

It may lead to hard conversations or deep disagreement, but it will force us to deal with things we did not or could not have seen on our own.

Intimacy—romantic or otherwise—is a beautiful and precious gift God has given to his children.

But like so many of God’s good gifts, because of our sin, intimacy is also very dangerous.

The only thing worth dating for is a marriage—a lifelong, life-on-life love like Jesus’s love for us.

Nothing else is worth all the risks we take when we begin to share our heart with someone else.

Lots of not-yet-married people need to be reminded that marriage is spectacular and needed in our society, and that’s because it belongs to God.

If you’re hoping to marry someone who passionately loves Jesus and makes him known, it’s probably best to put yourself in a community of people committed to that.

Some of us have tried dating and been burned—confusion, rejections, sexual failure, breakups, or whatever else plagues our relationships.
