Before my husband and I were married, I spent countless days wondering when I would find the right man. I had already been married at age 18, and had a son, so being a young, divorced, single mother, trying to find a quality man, was hard to say the least.
The road was not fun. I met guys who were only interested in me, but not my son. Or they had nothing going for themselves. I remember honestly thinking I would never find the right person. Although I was not a Christian at the time, the Lord intervened in a powerful way and brought me someone who adored me and my son. We were total opposites and everyone I knew questioned what I saw in him. Today we’ve been happily married 11 years and have three more children together. We are both in love with Jesus and raise our children to love Jesus.
Looking back, if I had been a Christian at that time, I would have spent less time trying to find the right earthly man, and more time trying to find the man that would change my life forever – Jesus. What I did not know then is, God will often have us wait a long time for the thing we want the most, and that’s usually because He is trying to develop our character. Finding the right man and eventually getting married, is not for your happiness. Marriage is designed by God and He wants you and your husband living a life with Him. If you are not happy right now, you won’t be happy once the “right” man comes. Your happiness will only come from a life with Jesus – He is the right man!
Focus on Jesus today and He will deliver you a man who is in love with the Lord and in love with you.
Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
