We all get anxious waiting on the Lord. It’s part of our nature that doesn’t trust in Him. Who knows the mind of God except God. Being alone is one of the hardest trials we as Humans can go through, but our Father is with us always. He wants to make sure that we stay in his grace and not be lead astray by our emotions. Being in relationship can certainly cause that. Remember, things here are temporal, eternity is our destination. I will pray that our Fathers will be carried out in you!
Yes! Control the emotion is the worst part at all!

i just think narrowing the target to only Christian might be too unrealistic and not practical.

My emotions have lead me to many downfalls. I can’t control them all the time. That’s when I call on the Father to help me see reality and not my emotions. And at times the hurt is still there, but I know it’s for a reason.

You’re right that it’s not practical, but also you don’t want to be unevenly yoked. It’s not easy to be a Believer of The Way.

In my last relationship my boyfriend makes a lot of joke about my religion. I got so sad about that, especially because i thought that i wasn´t so close to God as i used to be.

This is exactly why you want equally yoked. You don’t want your partner to influence you to doubt Jesus or cause you to stumble. Supporting each other’s Christianity is the only way to go. Eternity matters most.

I don´t know God´s plane for my life. Maybe He can put a no christian in my way again, but i´ll always prefer a christian. Right now i´m not looking for a husband, but a nice christian boyfriend. I have never had a christian one and i think it´ll be a great experience.

a too zealous Christian partner would be a pain imo . Good ethical and moral character is what you want. Christian is a bonus ...
