Before You Complain That There are No Good Men Left...




Finding a godly man these days can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But before you complain that there are no good men left, I encourage you to ask yourself four questions:


1.) Has God given up on men?


Elijah thought he was the last good man on earth. But God had to remind him that there were still 7,000 men who who hadn't bowed the knee to Baal. In every age of history, God has had a remnant of men who wouldn't compromise. If God hasn't given up on men, neither should you!


2.) Are you faithfully praying for the men of this generation?


Satan certainly seems to be working overtime, doing everything he can to keep men out of the christian race. But the God who transforms hearts is still on the throne. He hasn't stopped calling sinners to repentance! Are you asking the Lord to work revival among the men (and women!) of our generation? Don't complain about a lack of good men if you aren't lifting them up in prayer.


There are men out there right now who would be great future husband material if they were walking with God, and I don't think it's too crazy to believe that the prayers of God's daughters could make a difference in bringing them to Him. Never underestimate the power of prayer!


3.) Are you doing all you can to meet good men?


Take an honest look at your situation. If there are no options in your life right now, what actions are you taking to be around or meet potential husband material? If you never leave your house, avoid social activities, leave immediately after church without visiting, and don't make an effort to make new friends (male or female), then it's time to do the hard work of becoming more friendly, open, and integrated with community. Not merely for the sake of finding a husband (though it will aid in this endeavor!) but also to build up the body of Christ and combat self-centeredness and loneliness.


If there are zero potential options in your life right now, then it's time to think and pray about ways to meet more men. This might mean stepping out of your comfort zone and trying a new church or creating an online dating profile. Until you've truly exhausted all the avenues for meeting men, don't complain that there are none left.


4.) Do you have realistic standards for a husband?


If you won't give a good guy a chance because he's not tall enough, not the perfect amount of years older than you are, doesn't work the type of job you find attractive, isn't into the same hobby as you, or just isn't "your type," then there's a good chance you are passing up really great options. Re-evaluate what is a non-negotiable for you and pray about it. It could be that your list of "standards" are actually "preferences." There are plenty of good, Jesus-loving guys in this world, they just might not fit your perfect mental description.


Think about what will be important to you 20 years down the road. When you're 55, or 70, or 83, what will matter most to you in a husband then? Don't complain that there are no good men left if you are turning down guys who are "good enough," in a never ending search for the "someone better."
