An Analogy About Dating & God’s Will in Relationships

It was over some delicious Chinese food at PF Changs when the lovely Miss Katy Davis of Couture Makeup and I chatted about dating. Oh the fun and the frustration!

Katy shared an analogy that went something like this: The girl is like a diamond and a guy is a setting. The best setting would allow the girl to shine and he would lift her up so she could catch the light beautifully and sparkle.  In other words, she’d be radiant because she would the best she can be because the right “setting” would compliment her.

For the three dudes who read my blog who are horrified at that analogy, let me put it this way: The girl is like the body of a sports car, hot already but the best engine will turn that sports car from a M3 to a M5 or M7 if you will, therefore make it even hotter/better/faster whatever.  The better the engine, the cooler the car, get my drift?

How was that? Yeahhhhh I can talk guy.

So true. Don’t stop until you find that complimentary setting, engine, (whatever it is) to make you excel, shine and be the best you can be. Find the one that allows you to be imaginative, daring, free, loving, and goofy. That sounds like a pretty fun life if you ask me.

I came incredibly close to marrying a person so very wrong for me.  It was a poisonous relationship now that I look back on it and thankfully, God intervened and as I like to say, “karate chopped” that plan since I clearly wasn’t seeing what was in front of me.  He is so good and He is so protective and though we think we know what is good for us, He knows what is best.  The guy was the wrong setting and I was not who I knew I was capable of being when I was with him.

My sweet dad who loves the Lord so very much, gave me this pamphlet from church. He sat me down and gave it to me a while back during that on and off again time in that relationship.  I went through it, and it was a tough reality check.  I love my dad’s scribble, “Don’t settle!” written on there for me.

I thought I’d share this with all of you.  Christian or not, please peak at this and you’ll see many basic fundamentals of a good relationship that will keep you on track so you can make the best decision.  I hope you all hold out until you find your missing puzzle piece!
