As a single woman going on 30 it can be so hard to wait for God to bring my husband into my life. Some days I feel like there must be something wrong with me, or that I should just settle for whatever I can get, or that I must work harder at being more attractive or whatever. Some days these thoughts (aka LIES) plague my mind and bring out the insecurities in me. Lately God has been speaking to my heart of my worth and the plan He has for my life. He has been showing me what kind of man I am waiting for.
Do not settle. I know how hard it can be when you go home from a tough day at work and there’s no one there to just “be” with. I understand wanting a pair of loving arms to sob into when you are sad or broken. You are allowed to want a husband/wife, you are allowed to desire to be married.
Ps. 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” God gives us the desires of our hearts because He created us and placed those desires inside of us. Psalm 139 says that God formed us in the secret place, He formed our INWARD parts. He placed inside of us longings and desires, dreams, gifts, talents, skills, personalities…He created us with a need to love and receive love. He gave me a desire to be married and I know He will bring a studly, crazy Jesus lovin man into my life when it’s the right time.
God has a husband or wife for you that will be 100x better than what you can imagine…a spouse that will be your perfect match…a man or woman who will love you and draw you closer to Jesus in his love for you…
Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Your heart is important…be careful who you give it to. Marriage was meant to be a one time deal…forever united is a long time. A few years ago I was dating a guy I was convinced I was meant to be with and we talked about marriage quite a bit. Needless to say, us being married would have been a mess and both of us would have been miserable and resentful if we had gotten married. I want to give my heart to a man who will cherish, adore, comfort, edify, lead me closer to Jesus, encourage and compliment my gifts and the calling on my life…and I want to be a wife that can do the same for him. Don’t settle for the guy, “you could live with” but wait for the guy you cannot wait to do life with! Don’t believe the lie that I keep hearing single girls say, “all the good guys are taken”…they’re not. They exist and God has one for you!
Your heart is more valuable than you know.
