Just have patience, He says.

I'm frustrated. It seems God wants to teach me patience...and I havent quite grasped the concept yet. :-( Three years I havent dated anyone. Three years! And I have reasons, I do. I have these standards. They arent crazy, but so many people tell me they are unrealistic and that I will never find this man I am waiting for because he doesnt exist. But, I just cant believe thats true. The root of it is Christ. I need a man who loves the Lord with all his heart, and can be a spiritual leader. And in a relationship with me, a very strong leader type person, that would mean being a GREAT spiritual leader. I know that I intimidate guys with my confidence, but truthfully, I am not going to change. Because thats how I am. And if I have to change who I am for a guy, then...He's not who I want to be with. Goodness...its just hard. Because its not that I dont want to be with someone...its just that he hasnt come along yet. And I am getting sick of waiting, but I just CANT settle. I sometimes wish I could...but I cant....I cant.

  1. DON'T SETTLE. I'm 25 and still waiting. And though I thought I would be married with three kids by now, I'm thankful that I'm not. I would not want to trade these years of adventure with the Lord for anything. But I would encourage you not to let the wait go to waste. Don't just bide your time. Go on adventures with the Lord, even if you never leave home. I'm proud of you for not changing who you are. I love you for you and any man worth joining our family will too.
