I asked my sister Jamie Grace (yep, she’s my real sister!) to share the above quote with us. She actually just wrote a book called “Boys, Boys, Boys” for middle and high school girls. Check it out!
1. WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, WIILL BE FOR YOU
Rm 8:28, Isa 38:17; Jer 29:11
My sister @jamiegraceh is 23 and is one of many single women who is asked about her “dating life” and why she doesn’t just date around. Like her quote said, when you truly began to embrace the goodness of God and His perfect plan, you will find yourself less worried if so-and-so will ever text you back, ask you out, look your way, etc. Focus on being a servant of Christ. God will open the door to be in an intentional, godly relationship in HIS timing!
2. NO NEED TO JUMP IN A RELATIONSHIP
BEFORE YOU’RE READY, OR BEFORE HE’S READY
SoS 8:4, SoS 2:7
As the bride of Solomon in Song of Solomon encouraged the daughters of Jerusalem, don’t awaken love before it’s timing. What that means is, don’t start something before the time is right. Don’t think that just because you’re a certain age that you should be dating by now. Don’t think that just because he’s good looking and is fun to talk to that he’d make a good mate. Don’t think that just because “you had something” that no one else will love you and you have to go back to that relationship. Pray and ask the Lord to show you when the time is right. Surround yourself with mentors and believers at a Bible-teaching church that are able to pour wisdom into you and pray with you as you wait on God’s timing. Never feel like you have to rush! It’s worth it to wait for the door that GOD opens.
3. ENJOY WHERE GOD HAS YOU RIGHT NOW
1Co 15:58, 1Co 16:10, Isa 65:23
If you’re single, now is the time to serve. Now is the time to get some friends together on the weekend and go mentor young girls. It’s time for you to get plugged into your church and be an active part of the community. Write that book. Get that passport. Go pick up your little niece and take her to lunch. Now is the time for you to get up and go glorify God in everything you do and if you do it for Him, it is not in vain!
