“It didn’t work out” I’ve said that sentence a crazy amount of times within the past four days. See before I went to Venezuela, I told several of my friends that there was a girl I was interested in down there. I told them that we were supposed to hang out, and maybe just maybe it would work out. Well it didn’t! She kept telling me that she was so excited to see me, and hang out. I saw her one time, for a few seconds, and that was it. She avoided me like crazy. I could go with the sentiment offered up by a friend, when she heard me share this story; “B****** be trippin'”, but I guess there’s always the possibility that it is just me.
I know I’m always posting depressing stories, and depressing statuses about wanting to enter into a relationship with a girl that actually cares for me. And I’m used to getting comments with people telling me that there’s a girl on her way, and that God has someone saved back for me. So I swear that I’m not sharing this for attention, or to get you to make me feel better. Honestly I’m fine.
I guess I just get discouraged when I think about all the girls who I have “dated”. Because I feel that every one of them has taken advantage of me in one way or another. I’m not saying I’m innocent, I know I am far from innocent. But I hate that I’ve promised myself that the next time it will be different, the next time I’m going to fall for a %100 sold out Christ Follower, and it has still yet to happen.
But then, I get to this verse.
“Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14
I do think that there is a huge reason that the author writes: “wait patiently for the Lord” twice in one verse. I think he is really trying to show exactly how important it is to wait patiently, and not with haste. Because anytime that I have tried to hurry up God, and throw myself into a relationship, it hasn’t worked out. So it has still yet to sink in why the heck I keep trying to.
So if you’re single, and maybe you’re going through the same thing I am right now. Be brave, courageous, and wait patiently. God has something amazing coming for you. I know it’s hard to wait, I’ve been in the struggle for a long time but your reward will be worth it. Because all of the broken hearts that you have had, and all of the guys/girls who has done you wrong, will never compare to the person that God has prepared for you when you finally meet him/her.
