I Feel You...

Hey pretty girl,

 Yes you, the one who is still single :

 Don't let social media toy with your emotions. Yes, there are some beautiful love stories shared each day, some of which are genuine, most just for likes and validation. Don't let that cloud your headspace. Don't let that cloud your judgement. Don't let that make you settle. Don't let that make you sin. I’m here to encourage you to keep waiting. And when you think you can’t, just wait one more day. And then the next. And the next. Before you realize it, something great will happen. You’ll stop waiting and you’ll just start being. When you can finally just be, he, your "Mr. Everything I've Ever Dreamed Of" will come. He probably won’t be what or who you expect and he won’t come when you expect him to. I know you’ve heard that a million times, but I pinky promise it’s true. God doesn't do things stupid and he won't ever play you. He knows exactly who you need and who needs you. Relax and just trust his timing for your life.  At 29 it finally hit me that I desperately NEEDED to be alone to learn who I was in Christ and how to deal with myself, flaws and all, before anyone else will be able to love me with the human form of love and grace that God does. So I'm learning how to just be me. When you take the time to step out of the spotlight and invest time into unapologetically growing into the woman God has destined you to be, the man you thought you needed will come out of nowhere when you least expect it. God knows when our hearts are getting a little restless and is ready for someone to finally love us the way everyone deserves to be loved. Only then will he send a man so in love with him to finally pursue you with the right intentions. Only then will things fall together. A good man, the right man, is more than worth the wait. Do not settle for someone or sin just because you are bored or lonely. That guy can’t ever make you the happiest you were made to be. You’ll know when it’s real. It'll be a feeling you’ll never be able to explain because it comes straight from God, who is love. So hang in there. Your time will come.  Trust me, I feel you! 

Xo,
