Brittany and Austin aren’t the only ones that I know who are happily in love. My mom is seeing a wonderful guy and she’s over the moon with happiness. (And I’m over the moon with happiness for them. My mom deserves it.) Brandi is currently on her way to Florida to meet her boyfriend’s parents. (Her new boyfriend, Aaron, is such a kind and sweet Christian gentleman and exactly what Brandi needs.)
And then… there’s me. A string of one failed “relationship” after another. Sometimes, it feels like I’ll be single forever and ever. I don’t know why God has me in this waiting season of my life, but I do know I want to use it to honor and serve Him. I graduated from college with a 3.91 GPA, I work two jobs to get myself together financially, I teach Sunday school to little girls. I might go back to college for a Master’s degree and I have plans for a mission trip to Indianapolis this summer. I traveled to Colorado and Utah on a whim one summer, because I decided I wanted to see more of the world. These are all things that keep me busy while I wait.
One of my favorite Bible verses is found in the twenty-first chapter of Matthew, verse twenty-two. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. My mamaw loves to call me nearly every day and tell me she’s praying for me to get a Christian boyfriend. Sometimes I laugh and sometimes it bugs me, but honestly, I love it. I love to pray for my future husband, wherever he is. I pray that’s he’s molding into a man of God, just as God is molding me into a woman of God. My friend Lydia inspired me to write letters to my future husband, so on days like today when I feel especially lonely, that’s exactly what I do.
Until God brings me the right guy, I’ll be waiting.
