Two years before I met my wife, my eventual best man Kevin set me up on a blind date. His girlfriend had a friend who was unattached and we all went off to the cinema together. I have to confess that I cannot remember the girl’s name but I can remember that when I got home that evening I was troubled in my heart. I felt uncomfortable and I felt as if I had been driving in my car the wrong way down a one way street. The next morning was Sunday and I explained the situation to a friend who prayed with me. God was clear in his direction: I must not give any wrong impression about being available to someone who did not share my faith in Jesus Christ. She had told me that she was not religious, and didn’t see it as a problem that I was a Christian, but I knew that if we continued, my spiritual car was heading for a crash!
