Why did I choose to do this blog?
Well, for three years now, I’ve had an interest in reading and watching videos of how God has brought couples together. I wanted to find a connection to people who have been where I am now. You might be wondering where I am. The answer is simple: I have never had a boyfriend nor have I ever been on a date, and I am perfectly okay with that because I do not have an interest in having multiple boyfriends. I just desire ONE boyfriend and that is the one God has for me, and God has me for him.
Yes, I know my situation is a lot different from most people or most Christians for that matter. The latter is something I discovered even more as I read different articles and watched videos. All of the videos and articles I found entailed Christian couples who had a past of broken relationships and how not too long after their decision to wait for God, they met the one God had for them. It was wonderful to see how God showed those couples how their past—so long as they leave it there—does not define them. Still, I found myself desiring to hear/read stories of couples (or one of the people within the relationship) that had no previous relationships, couples who had seen friends and family around them beginning their right relationships at a younger age than they are, and how God brought about these couples’ love story at the right time.
The more I looked the more I did not find it. I even hit a low point where I wrote an encouragement letter to myself. That is when I believe God showed me that instead of looking for that article, blog or video that has a similar story to mine; perhaps, I need to become that blog that I had been looking for. So, I write this for the teenage girls out there who are having a hard time seeing the benefit of waiting for God in this area of their life despite what you see around you whether it’s friends, family or TV. I also write this for the girls my age (I’m 24) who desire marriage but find the only prospects seem to be the nonbelievers, or the sometime Christian who attends church every once in a while but does not live out God’s word unless it’s convenient for them.
Moreover, I write this to the women who are a bit older than me who have past relationships or even have remained dedicated to waiting for God but are feeling uneasy as they approach an age where the statistics are telling you the chances of this or that happening are slim. What I pray is that EACH of you who read any of my posts walk away with something God needs you to know about him, and his will for you. Please know that as I write these posts—the posts will be chapter-by-chapter study of God’s word and how the TRUTH applies to any season of your life—I’ll be learning right along with you. Feel free to post some of your own story; I would love to read it.
