Doug knows me better than I know myself. He sees all of me and loves me and I find so much comfort in that. I meet so many girls that want love and a relationship with a Godly man and I know they can have it! They have to just trust that the right man is out there for them and never settle. Once we know that Gods promises are true and we deserve great things, we start acting like we deserve great things!
I spent most of my college years not dating. I went on a few dates with guys here and there, but I never found my forever someone, nothing really serious. I remember asking my mom, “Where is he Mom?” and feeling so frustrated that I wasn’t in a relationship. I think we are created to share our lives with someone and that desire is common and in us all, to be known and seen and loved.
We all deserve love and I believe God has a plan and perfect timing. I have seen this in my own life. Looking back, I spent so much of my free time in college in Gods word. I used the time where my friends were in relationships, investing in my relationship with Jesus. Now I find I have so many verses, wisdom and knowledge from using the time I had available to me in that unique season of my life- investing into God. Now with three kids and many jobs, I am so grateful to look back on that time as this sweet season with God.
Whatever season you find yourself in, know that you were created to be in relationship with people. You were created to be known and loved and you deserve that! The great thing is once you receive that relationship, you still are on this journey of investing into each other Laughing and growing together. We are all on a journey and it is so wonderful to know we were created to be on this adventure of life together.
