Don't Focus On Playing The Field - Swipe Right Devotional - 03.11.17

You can make that decision right now. Focus more on who you are becoming and the issues in your own heart than trying to find ‘the one’. Seek God and believe that at the end of the day, He’s going to give you more than you could have ever tried to get for yourself.

A verse from Genesis was instrumental in Jennie and my’s relationship: Jacob’s dad Isaac was in the fields in the evening. And he lifted his eyes. And there was Rebecca. Isaac wasn’t out there playing the field; he was harvesting the field. I don’t know of a better way to meet your wife or husband. Jesus said that the laborers are few but the fields are ripe for harvest (Luke 10:2).

That should occupy your time in your single years. Give it all you’ve got! If you simply focus on fulfilling the Great Commission—a mission to go fishin’ for souls—I believe that one day you will lift your eyes and see a fellow fisherman or woman who is as passionate about the field as you are, and it will make sense to fish together. Do what God has called you to do. Run in that lane. Then one day you’ll lift up your eyes, and there they’ll be.
