Let us take a look at some Red Flags in Relationships.
Dating can be hard. If you’re single right now, you know that it brings both unique challenges and unique joys! Starting a relationship is one thing, but maintaining a healthy relationship is another thing. At the beginning of your time together you both put your best foot forward, but as time goes by you learn more and more about the other person, for better or for worse.
If you’re married, don’t skip through just yet! These are also great red flags to see in yourself and ask the Holy Spirit’s help to change. Also, you might want to pass them on to others in your life who are walking through this season.

While you’re dating someone and on the journey of looking for a potential spouse to share life with, ask for God to bring things to the surface and show you red flags early on! Love can be blind, so we need the Holy Spirit’s help to see through the facade straight to the heart of a person.
Below are three red flags to look out for in any dating relationship:
1) They cut off all their good friends and only want to be with you.
2) You can’t be yourself around them.
3) They have a warped view of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Church.

If you’re dating someone and see one of these red flags come up, it doesn’t mean you have to break up, but it does mean it would be wise to have an honest conversation! It’s best to address the mess before it gets the best of you.
You are a child of God and He wants the best for you. When you walk out dating relationships with open hands to your Heavenly Father and a surrendered heart to the Holy Spirit’s guidance, you can trust that the Lord will lead you to the right person to spend your life within His timing!
Heavenly Father, help me to surrender to you with my relationships. I lean into you for guidance with who I date and ask for wisdom. Show me red flags if I need to see them and give me the strength to follow you with all my ways! In Jesus’ name, amen.
