Seek First The Kingdom

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you" (Matthew 6:33 NIV).

This time of year never fails to divert our minds to the things and people for which we are thankful.

I am thankful for many things, but I am most grateful for meeting a true man of God named Vince this year.

I had dated many great guys in the past, but I had never experienced the feeling of being at peace in a relationship. Like many people, I ignored the red flags and even had a ton of red flags of my own. Even though I wanted to be in a God-approved relationship, I also had a societal view of what I desired that often outweighed what I truly needed. I had watched one too many romantic comedies, so my perception of love was so skewed and muddled in chemistry, butterflies, and the perfect love story.

At the beginning of this year, I embarked on a more profound spiritual journey to know God more and truly put him first. I earnestly sought him. In doing so, inevitably, it changed my dating compass and my whole perspective on men. The more I spent time with God, the more I craved the things of God. The cravings eventually trickled over into my dating life.

When I met Vince for the first time, I was instantly captivated by his sweet spirit and sincere heart that truly seeks God.
