Song of Solomon 2:7

I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.

It would be shocking to me if you haven’t used these hash-tags or have seen them before. Do these hash-tags mean something or do they just follow a trend?

Lately, I have been soul searching and seeing what makes myself and others happy. Does happiness come from yourself or someone else? Does being happy only come from being in a relationship or dating?

In our society, being single seems to come off as “Oh, you’re missing out.”
Guess what?

I wholeheartedly disagree.

Almost 21 years old, and I have never had a boyfriend. Shocking?
It is possible to fulfill your life with something other than the “lovey dovey boyfriend or girlfriend syndrome.”

Don’t get me wrong. RELATIONSHIPS, are the bomb. Just graduated college, looking for a new job, and living day by day seeing people getting married, and getting engaged. Yes, of course I question when my prince charming will stroll around the corner and say hello. I am not perfect and struggle in many ways. Have you ever felt like you are not worthy enough to be loved? What about being in a relationship? Those apply to me but, why in the world would I want to rush that? It does not make you a happier person giving your heart away to many. A hug, holding hands, sex, and kissing are all physical actions. Each time it happens, you are giving a piece of yourself away to someone you may or not spend the rest of your life with. To me, it is way more than that. I simply choose to wait for someone that God leads my way. I want to be whole for my husband and I pray daily he will be too.

Dating does not have to be something you absolutely have to join in on. I have had the greatest times by being alone. Pouring into myself, it shows me who I really am. I learn something new everyday about a relationship through someone else and by being single.

Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that. 

Step back, and seek God first. Are the desires of your heart, those of good intentions or is it you trying to fill an empty gap in your heart?

 

It is more than possible being a happy Christ follower.

No one will ever know you intimately more than your creator. So why not let him control your life.

Be patient.

Be love, and you will soon find the one that your heart desires.

1 Corinthians 15:33

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
