Growing up in the church, I thought I had a solid understanding of how my story would play out. No matter how you choose to word it, being single was never in my plans.The picture of two oxen bound (or yoked) together is often used to explain this Scripture. Otherwise, they will fight with one another and experience exhaustion.The same is true of two people who marry but don't share a common faith.Or mentioning their far-off distant relative who they thought might still be single (which they never were), and who they could maybe one day set me up with (which they never did).It became hard to find peace between the God that I loved and this aching, unmet desire to find a companion. It felt like God wasn’t listening, and I was discouraged that my life seemed stuck in a pit of hopelessness with no sign of movement anytime soon.Something so good, is so bad cause I’ve dedicated my life to Christ and my bf has chosen his own path. More importantly, does anyone actually you’re a Christian, and be quiet about it? Offering unsolicited critical opinions of others makes you a toxic gossip, which is one of the lowest things anyone can be.
I took the long view that you can’t predict what’s going to happen.He would now quite happily call himself a Christian and a believer.Of course, there are no guarantees on that front and I don’t think you should ever go into marriage hoping to change the other person.Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.Perhaps you're not convinced yet, and you wonder, Even well-meaning Christians can fall into the trap of marrying non-believers.
