This quote processed in my mind though as I mindlessly maneuvered through traffic. As it did, I felt the Lord change something in me, like He gave the ok for a shift in my life to happen a shift in my focus. Not wanting to misunderstand, I asked God to speak to me more about it… to clarify what He meant. It was then that I felt the Lord tell me that it was time for me to no longer just focus on my singleness and what God wants to teach me during this season (which is mainly trusting Him). Instead, I was given the ok to focus on seeking Christ in order to find you. Although, it wouldn’t be just seeking Christ to find you. It would be more like really seeking Christ’s guidance in my life and He would make our paths cross.
One thing I know for sure is... I need to stop trying to get God to bring me a "you" that's based upon these love songs. I need to trust that God has you amazingly designed to fit in life with me. I need to trust that God has made a man after His own heart that isn't confined by any song or any feeling.
How do we keep our courage and hope for the future when all we want, deep down, is to be loved by a man and potentially raise a family with him... yet our lives show no evidence of this being able to happen? I KNOW I'm not the only one who, when life takes a slight breath or when there's a slight pause in the middle of the hustle and bustle, feels discouragement or sadness creep in. What do we do with these moments? Are they inevitable? Can we live our lives in such a way where we never have to struggle with loneliness or discouragement?
