The joy of dating again

Or when a man and woman vow to stick together “’til death do us part?

I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” True to His promises, He has done that very thing.

I’m confident that He wants to do the same for you.

I encourage you to hang in there with Him, and if you need to, speak with a professional counselor to help you unravel the lies you’ve believed so that God can give you the desires of your heart.

No kissing on the couch or leaning against the wall… What if we just stop hanging out after a certain time? I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!
