To all the boys who ever mistreated me. To all the boys who never gave me the time of day. To all the boys who only ever wanted to see what they could get from me… thank you.
Thank you because you pointed me along the road to the one who has never mistreated me, who has pursued me with the heart of Jesus, and who has always valued and protected my purity.
It was a long and winding road, often full of stumbling blocks, scorching heat, and hot tears of uncertainty, doubt and longing. But the Lord was faithful to me in my waiting and my seeking for a man after His own heart. And for that I am so grateful.
Are you single and longing for a godly boyfriend/fiancé/spouse? The road may be long, but the journey is worth every ache of your heart, every lonely night, and every painful day.
God wants you to never settle for anything less than His best. For YOU are His BELOVED BRIDE! In whom He greatly delights. Whom He formed in your mother’s womb. And He knows the deepest desires of your heart and longings of your soul.
Take heart. Do not give up hope. Cling to His Scripture—to His every promise. For He is faithful and good.
Often He asks us to give up good for His best. Are you settling today? Don’t. Say “thank you, next” to every boy who doesn’t treat you like the absolute daughter of the Most High King that you are.
And sister friend, one day you will look back and you, too, will thank all those who failed to give you all you deserve and who failed to be the one you deserve. For they will have pushed you one step closer to a man who loves you in the way God designed for you to be loved.
