Dear single ladies and men,
Hopefully, you are as strong in body as you are in your soul.
Remember the last letter I wrote to you on lessons learnt from when I almost dated an engaged man?
It would seem like a torrent full of men was rained down on me after that post.
I sat one day and got thinking…
Is it any wonder that some godly women and men settle for less than God’s best for them?
The number of wrong toasters who come our way is alarming.
A married man…
A man who still masturbates and watches porn…
A man who’s idea of fun is to drink beer…
A man who says he knows God but can’t teach me nothing about the Word…
Oh, Dr N said in my last letter that that incident was a test.
At some time during the past weeks, I had to stop and talk to God…Is it that I didn’t pass the test?
Why all these additional tests?
I mean, shortly after that post, I met a guy who said he wanted to be just friends…friends again?
When he was always coming around, we were always talking…. This was to be the part two of my post on lessons from almost dating an engaged man, on guarding our hearts (I’ll still put it up next week).
I already knew that I and this “friend” cannot be together, he isn’t the one… So why play with fire?
Giving room for feelings to grow by all the serenre close friendship was just playing with fire because I know that immediately my heart gets involved and he isn’t for me… God will say I should let go again.
It was really overwhelming at a point.
I knew that I couldn’t settle but when my best friend called me and started talking about a certain guy, it became re-emphasized in me.
I can’t settle and you shouldn’t too.
I dropped that call and started crying unto God(Thats how I roll with Him, tell Him everything)
God knows that I am not desperate to be married, I am not in a haste, in fact, sometimes I don’t think I can deal with marriage now(story for another day) but I was asking Him to please help me.
I can’t do this on my own.
I need to wait for His best for me and not be distracted by any of these men around.
I started playing “Juanita Bynum’s-I don’t mind waiting” and prayed and sang and spoke from my heart to God.
Oh, it was a sweet relief to just lay it all bare before God.
We haven’t had our first virtual prayer here yet and this is a good place to start.
I am not the only lady who’s waiting on God’s best for her, I believe we have single men and women who are waiting on God’s chosen for them.
Men and women who do not want to be swayed by whatever they see and all the options that gets thrown on them each day.
I want us to pray.
I talked to God about this issue(wrote a bit of a letter to Him) and it was a relief.
So let’s talk to God like our father today…
Pray along with me…
“Daddy, I know that you know what is best for me and I accept that with all my heart.
I want what you want for me too but Lord it gets hard.
The options I see each day are limitless.
I see the married men chasing me.
I see the guy with whom I click so much with chasing me.
We laugh, we joke, we connect but Lord He doesn’t love you like he should and you are first in my life.
I can’t marry a man/woman who doesn’t place you first in his life.
Oh Daddy, it’s so hard to stay away and wait on you but I promise you that I will wait for your chosen for me. I won’t run ahead of you.
Please help me Lord.
Help me to stand firm.
Help me to keep my promise to you Lord, no matter what it may take… No matter how many toasters may look like him… No matter how many guys may look like him, I will wait for you to speak.
Help me to wait on you and wait for him who you have for me.
I love you Daddy.
I love you with all my heart.
I love you forever.
I will wait for your chosen for me.
Just grant me grace to stand firm.
Thank you Lord 🙂 “
If you are going through this right now(an overwhelming influx of the wrong guys), you can download and listen to Juanita Bynum’s-I don’t mind waiting. It soothed me when I listened to it.
For everyone reading this, who is waiting on God’s best for them, I pray we never falter.
We will wait patiently for God to act.
We will wait patiently and not give into what we see around.
I love you all,
