Women of God,
I have been through numerous relationships where I thought I could finally feel complete. I thought some guy could make me feel like I was loved, important, beautiful, all that good stuff. But what I forgot was that I deserved something special. And so do you. You’re not just any girl looking for any type of guy. You are a beautiful daughter of God. Don’t you think your Daddy in heaven is looking out for you? Not with a shot gun and a “Don’t touch my daughter” look for all those guys that come knocking on your door. But instead, He has an “I love you so much that I gave up My life for you. Trust Me! It’s all in My time. I know what you need and deserve.” He created and molded you. Girls…listen! You are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). He knows you better than anyone.
My mom used to tell me that God had someone special for me and if it was taking long it’s because He was building him into the man He wanted him to be. I would settle for guys that knew God but only so much that it became a flirt to convert mission. Several months ago I came to a realization and I finally came to a point where I had had enough. I told God that from that point on I would leave it in His hands; no more trying to do things my way. I knew that God wanted me to be with someone who feared Him, who lived in a way that honored Him. I realized that in order for God to bless me with the man of God I knew I deserved and that He wanted for me I had to be the woman of God that God wanted me to be. I had to strive to be that woman that God wanted me to be and that that man of God He had for me would need me to be. I knew that I couldn't do it alone though. I asked God for help. I asked for Him to help me heal from the brokenness from my past relationships and I asked Him to break me and mold me into what He saw I could be. I prayed that he would make me into a vessel for Him. I no longer wanted to be what I thought I should be, but instead I prayed that God would reshape me into what He wanted me to be.
God has only the best thoughts towards you (Psalm 139:17-18). A friend reminded me that God doesn’t always give you what you want, but He gives you what you need, and sometimes He gives you both what you want and what you need. God has reminded me of His faithfulness with this new relationship He has blessed me with. I never thought I could be with this awesome man of God, but God knew. A relationship with Christ at its core will be fruitful, blessed, and strong. So I urge you, Women of God, take hold of the One Who loves you most, Who has never failed you and never will. He knows what He’s doing, even if we don’t understand. It’s all in His time.
Read Psalm 139:1-18
