Worth the Wait!

So many young women it seems feel as if they need to be in a relationship. To have that man who can make you feel as if you are worth it.

However, there is no man on this Earth who can love you the way God loves you. He spent precious time planning each aspect of who you are to be. He designed every aspect of your being, from your hair, to the sound of your voice, and His creation is perfect and absolutely Worth It.

I have been reading this book called "God is Writing My Love Story" and the main point the authors are trying to get across is that why should we spend so much time looking for who we will fall in love with and marry? Why wouldn't we give that aspect of our lives over to God as well? Wouldn't it be correct to say that the One who created everything you are and has a plan for your life, also has a plan for when a man will come into your life and be the one for you to marry?

I don't know about you, but there are so many times where I have tried to take the lead and decide what is right for me, and have failed miserably. But when I trust in God and follow Him, things always seem to go so much better.

So I am now letting God write my love story. I am letting Him bring the right person into my life when the time is right.

In the end, if the love of my life is someone that is truly devoted to God the way I am, then it is WELL WORTH THE WAIT!

Difficult Conversations

Last semester I took this class with House of Hope about how to have difficult conversations and since then I have found that God continues to bring new situations into my life that calls for a difficult conversation to be had.

In my last post I talked about a professor's remarks about my faith and in this upcoming week I will be meeting with the provost of my University to talk about them. I do so not out of malicious intent or revenge, but because I feel that it is every student's right to be able to sit in a classroom without being insulted because of their religious beliefs.

I will also be talking with another member of the university community about an employer and how many who recently rent on a service trip to New Orleans (which I will write about soon) feel that she is unable to be in charge of such trips anymore. Again, no evil intentions, but rather as a way to not only protect her but to help other students who go on future service trips, to feel safe while doing so.

So as I continue to see God growing me in my ability to confront difficult situations head on, all I can say is that I praise Him for doing so. He continues to help me grow more in love with Him, more in my faith, and more confident as a child of God.

I know that through it all, He will give me the right words to say as I try to convey the things that need to be conveyed to the community around me.
