Trust God. Serve Him. Focus on Him. Be content in Him. Look to Him. Hide your heart in Him. You’ll see, He has the best for you. You just need to stop worrying about it. You just need to wait patiently. But you’re not in a waiting room, you’re in the field. Enjoy this opportunity to serve freely. Enjoy these moments, because they will not last forever. It happens like this all of the time. The minute you’re not “looking”; at the exact moment that you’ve finally surrendered your heart; just when you’ve found your complete contentment in Him, then it will happen. You’ll see. You’ll be speechless. You’ll be so glad you waited so patiently… so faithfully…
… In the meantime, you have to work. God has given you a growing opportunity and you have to use it. You have to work on your education. You have to work on your career. You have to work on your debt and finances. You have to work on your savings. You have to work on your relationships. You have to work on your personality. You have to work on your temperament. You have to work on being a better daughter… a better sister… a better friend… a better woman… and of course, being a better future wife. Learn to cook. Learn to clean. Learn to keep a budget. Learn to keep a beautiful showcase quality home on pennies. Learn to be an excellent hostess. Learn to deal with difficult people (future mother-in-law). Learn to take care of children by constantly volunteering to save your happily-married friends from theirs for an afternoon so they can have some much needed quality time with their spouses. Learn to be culturally diverse. Learn something about sports. Learn to keep a conversation. Learn to keep silent. Learn to be independent. Learn to be submissive.
And above all, YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT NEGLECT YOURSELF!
Get your hair done. Get your nails done. Get your feet done. Treat yourself like a lady. Buy yourself something nice once in a while. Wear flattering clothes. Nobody wants a frump-monster. But, you should work on being modest. You have to be a good steward. Don’t be wasteful. Don’t be materialistic. Keep your pride in check. It’s who you are that counts, not what you wear. And truly, you are an amazing person already. A great catch! A phenomenal addition to any family. A wonderful daughter, sister, and friend. Honestly, the man who gets you is going to be one especially blessed man. He will be singing praises for having such a well-rounded and completely whole person. Prepared from the inside out. You should work on the gym, though. You should work-out at the gym. You’d get a lot more attention if you lost a few pounds. You have such a beautiful face. Your smile, it lights up a room. You just need to lose a little weight. You just need to work-out a little. Wake up a little earlier. Go to bed a little later. Watch your carbs. Watch your calories. Watch your fat. Watch your points. Because you know how it is; men will be men. They can’t help it. They see with their eyes, not with their hearts. It’s really not their fault; it’s how they are built. It’s how they are wired. It’s how they’re created.
But, just wait. You’ll see. When the time is right, it will happen. You just have to keep working on yourself. You just have to keep waiting… patiently… faithfully… serving, learning, working, growing, molding, shaping, fitting, fixing, exercising, doing, being, living, waiting… You’ll see. Just wait. You have to trust Him.
Trust who? God? The God who created man? Yeah, maybe I should work on that.
