It’s been awhile. I apologize for the lack of content posted here on the blog, as well as on our social media accounts. Life has been pretty busy, but our web series, The C-Word is doing amazing things. However, with all of that being said, today’s post has nothing to do with being busy. Today I want to talk about how God has been orchestrating my love story over the past few months.
As many of you know, I have been single for a little over three and a half years. At the beginning of my singleness I despised men, then God began healing my heart and I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. After year two, I was content with my season, but when year three rolled around, I started to ask God when he was going to show up for me. The desire for marriage and children grew exponentially with no potential suitor. I trusted God, but I didn’t quite trust his timing as I mentioned a few months ago. Then for a few months I met some people, but they all ended up wasting my time. I always pray the same prayer when I meet a man that is interested in me. You should try it too. Works like a charm. “God, if this is not the man you have for me, show me his character.” Like clockwork the man’s true motives/intentions or deal breakers are revealed. In reality, I didn’t waste much time, because once I pray that prayer, God shows up in about three days.
Anyways, I was becoming exhausted with this back and forth cycle. Why were all these counterfeits being sent my way? Maybe it was a test that I finally passed. So let’s rewind to about a month ago… I wasn’t expecting ANYTHING. I was so over the counterfeits that I was focusing on the new chapter of life that was about to begin. I was about to move into a new place that is 10 minutes away from my job and I would have a roommate to keep me company. I had fallen into a depression while living alone, so I was excited to start fresh.
On March 12, here comes the love of my life and I had no clue he was coming. I won’t go into details about how we met because we are starting a YouTube channel, but God sent him and I am so blessed. He is literally EVERYTHING I prayed for and most importantly, he decided to join me on my celibacy journey. He’s affectionate, romantic, a great communicator, open and honest, loves God, can cook, and he’s handsome. God sent me someone above and beyond my expectations and I knew that he would because I waited for Him. As difficult as it was to hand over the pen to God, I did because I knew his pick would be better than mine. Y’all know I struggled for the past year and a half to trust God and keep the course. It’s been rough for ya girl, but God showed up for me and He will show up for you too!
If you are in the season where you are questioning God and his timing, I encourage you to be still and know that He is God. He knows exactly when you and your future spouse are ready to begin your love story. That desire for companionship comes from God and he will make sure that comes to pass. Focus on preparing to be a wife because you are one before the title; and also focus on YOU. This is the last time that you will have your full independence. A husband and children will rely on you for the rest of your life and you will have to consider other people in all your decisions. So enjoy your singleness to the fullest! It is not a curse.
I suggest reading “When God Writes Your Love Story.” It will change your life. It certainly changed mine.
