Waiting for True Love
When you feel lonely it’s usually God’s way of crying out to you to spend quality time with Him because He wants a personal relationship with all of His children but sometimes we get distracted with fruitless things and only call on Him (A) when we’re in trouble and (B) when we ‘want’ something. Ask yourself, if that’s the kind of person you want in your life? Often when people sense loneliness they instantly reflect over past relationships– becoming envious of other people relationships, questioning their physical appearance, wondering if God cares about their condition then eventually become impatient and find an alternative to fill that void of loneliness.ฺ
God cares for all of His children. He only wants the best for us. But, waiting is the test most cannot bear. Therefore, we fall into a complaining spirit. There’s plenty of people who got tired of waiting on God and stepped outside of His will and wasn’t cognizant that they were going to end up with some fool or knucklehead, have an unwanted pregnancy, emotional distress, and much more. Being a 22 year old young man, who is saved I understand the single life arena; growing frustrated and impatient pondering if there’s anybody for me. I know the feelings that you experience; however, I prefer to wait patiently on the Lord then to have anybody just to advertise that I’m in a relationship. Settling for less is not negotiable because I value my worth and my expectations are too high in Christ. Learn to be content in all things as Paul stated. Enjoy the single life while you can because that’s where God does His best work in you; molding you, teaching you, equipping you to the man and woman of God He has called you to be.ฺ
The closer you draw to God the closer He’ll bring you to the one He has for you. God is the perfect match maker. It’s obvious we’re not because many been through several relationships and still can’t find the right person. I encourage you my brothers and sister in Christ to wait on the Lord. Don’t become anxious because you’ll end in a relationship that’ll have you begging for God’s help to get out of. Draw closer to Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.
