Bring It Into Play
Bad boys seem to get a lot of attention. Their rebellious spirit and mystery can feel like a thrill. Until you re-frame it into the reality of making a life with a bad boy.
Do you want a husband who breaks the law? Or spends time in jail?
That mystery. Do you like lies and secrets? Will you be okay with your husband doing things behind your back?
Substance abuse can seem edgy and cool when you’re young. But what about when he doesn’t go to work because he is too hung over or high. Or bills don’t get paid because his drug of choice was more important.
His constant flirting and paying attention to other girls may make you feel competitive and possessive. Willing to fight for him in all circumstances to win.
But what about when he cheats while you’re pregnant with a toddler running around. Do you want to put your energy into fighting for him...or raising a family?
What if all those things that seem so exciting are the darkness’s way of drawing you into a life of heartache and pain?
Stick with nice guys who follow Christ. Who reflect His light through honesty, transparency, kindness, self-control, and patience. Making it possible to build a solid life.
He doesn’t have to be perfect. Just trying to do his best on God’s path.
Hey God. I am young. So it doesn't feel like I should have to care about adult life yet. I don't understand why I am not attracted to nice guys. For some reason those relationships feel boring. I want a solid life. Build the desire in me for a solid guy. Get to the root of why I am attracted to guys who play games and treat me wrong. Open my eyes to the fun I could have with a guy who is nice. Remind me that it is a lie to believe that nice is boring. I want a guy with a heart after you. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
