"I have learned that I will not change the world, Jesus will do that. I can however, change the world for one person. And if one person sees the love of Christ in me, it is worth every minute. In fact, it is worth spending my life for." -Katie Davis

waiting for the right "one" :
I Will Wait for You
"...And I will know you because when you speak, I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom, your ability to lead will remind me of Moses, your faith will remind me of Abraham, your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel, your inspiration will remind me of Paul, your heart for God will remind me of David, your attention to detail will remind me of Noah, your integrity will remind me of Joseph, and your ability to abandon your own will, will remind me of the disciples, but your ability to love selflessly & unconditionally will remind me of Christ. But I won’t need to identify you by any special Matthews or any special marks, ’cause His Word will be tatted all over your heart.
And you will know me, and you will find me, where the boldness of Esther meets the warm closeness of Ruth, where the hospitality of Lydia is aligned with the submission of Mary, which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hannah. I will be the one, drenched in Proverbs 31, waiting for you.
But to my Father, my Father who has known me before I was birthed into this earth, only if You should see fit.
I desire Your will above mine. So even if you call me to a life of singleness, my heart is content with You–the One who was sent. You are the greatest love story ever told, the greatest love ever known. You are forever my judge & I’m forever Your witness, and I pray that I’m always found on a mission about my Father’s business.
I will always be Yours, and I will always wait for You, Lord. More than the watchmen wait for the morning, more than the watchmen wait for the morning, I will wait."
I really like this poem & so I wanted to share it with all of you.
God has perfect timing. We don't even need to be worrying about who we will marry right now. Focus on developing an intimate relationship with your Creator; Build your life around Him, and only Him. Don't give your heart & emotions away in temporary relationships. Hold out for the person God will one day bring into your life. God will honor your patience.
"And this I speak for your
own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is
comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction."
