The Importance of Waiting

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love weddings. The dresses, the flowers, the decorating... I just love weddings. Perhaps this is because I haven't had my own wedding yet. Oh, I've planned it. I've got just about everything ready for my wedding that I can possibly prepare without even having a young man!
But I'm also glad God has had me wait as long as I have to get married. I'll soon be a quarter of a century old, which (in my family) is the longest a girl has gone without getting married. Part of this is due to the fact that there are a lack of young men in my church and town (and even less that are Godly young men) and the other part is that God knew I was not ready yet, so I've been made to wait.
Hmm, wait, not made... Let me change that....

Waiting while trying to find your future spouse is not a burden, it's a blessing. As single young Christians, we are given a great opportunity to serve the Lord completel…

I may not.... But.....

I may not have a palace,
But I have a home.
I may not have the perfect family,
But I have a family.
I may not have a thousand friends,
But I have Godly friends.
I may not have riches untold,
But I have salvation and that's most important.
I may not be the most eloquent speaker,
But my words are spoken in truth and kindness.
I may not be the most beautiful girl in the world,
But my Saviour created me and He made me how He wanted me to look.
I may not write the best books,
But if they make someone smile, cry or laugh, I'll be happy.
I may not cook the best food,
But I have food to cook and that's a blessing.
I may not be the smartest person,
But I know what real wisdom is and what isn't.
I may not be the best Sunday school teacher,
But 'my kids' make my heart joyful each week.
I may not be the greatest of writers,
But whatever I write, I'm writing for the glory of God.

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corin…
