When you’re dating a guy, it’s easy to think he’s perfect.You’re in a love haze, so be careful because there are definite differences between the boy you date and the man you marry.And one of the unique necessities that a godly man brings to a relationship is a vision for what God wants him to do with his life.In a marriage relationship, it is the man who is expected to provide leadership and vision and the man who is charged to provide for his family. Rather, a godly woman is looking for a man who knows what God has called him to do and is pursuing it.

If you’re young and having fun at this point in your life, it’s okay to date around and have flings, but before long you’re going to want to settle down, so make sure you do it with a quality man, not an immature boy.There were also some biblical ideals that I held up for myself, for example, to have a "God-entranced vision" for all of life, which I got from John Piper and Jonathan Edwards.These ideals for a man, which I share below, helped guide me throughout the course of my dating relationship and have carried over into my marriage.There are many single women at the church where my wife and I are members, and in conversations with them, all of them — without exception — have expressed a desire for a man with a God-entranced vision of life.

When I started dating my wife, Grace Anna, in the summer of 2008, I was a Marine officer stationed in Japan, and she was on CRU staff at Duke University.As I began to have feelings for her and think that I wanted to pursue her in an exclusive relationship, I decided to call her dad to let him know more about me and what my intentions were.
