When God Writes your Love Story: learning to be patient ❤

Good morning y'all! I really wish I was from the South and I had a southern accent, but I don't. So for now I will continue to use the phrase y'all until hopefully one day God moves me to the South and I begin to develop an authentic Southern accent. You all think I'm kidding, but I'm not, y'all. ;).

Today I will venture out into the world of job hunting. I am downright scared, but this little lady needs a summer job. I would it if you guys said some prayers for me today. This morning I have been praying to Jesus to give me confidence to speak to different employers and managers today with boldness, so that they will be more willing to hire me. I am praying that Jesus would bring favor upon me in everyone that I talk with today at different businesses. I'm just nervous because I feel that it has always been so hard for me to get a job in the past. Jesus, be with me, and make my efforts successful. That's all I ask. Also, place me in a job where I can bring the most glory to you Father.

"And may the Lord our God show us His approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful."
Psalm 90:17

Anyways my friends, I'm sad to announce to you guys that this lovely series is soon coming to a close. I normally don't post on my blog on Saturdays and Sundays, so Monday will be the conclusion of the "When God Writes Your Love Story" series for my blog. I am excited to conclude this amazing book with you guys. I am currently investing into more awesome books by this couple to read on the topic of godly relationships for the summer. I may even have a post dedicated to "suggested summer readings," what would you guys think of that?! It's summertime friends, lets get our book grind on while we have more of the opportunity! We can suggest awesome summer reads to each other and encourage one another!

So...The topic today on "When God Writes Your Love Story" is patience. Yep, that one word that nobody wants to deal with. Why is being patient so hard? Why does it make us so frustrated? Well, I'll answer that one for you. It's frustrating because I want to be living out my fairy-tail life with my future husband NOW. If I had it my way, I would already be married right now and in the process of adding a new puppy to our family.

....Since that clearly isn't the reality of my life, Jesus has taught me to be patient. In those times where the last thing in the world I want to do is wait some more, Jesus lets me know quietly in my soul that I'm just going to have to wait a little bit longer. Heck, It could be A LOT longer until this gal meets her future man.

It just gets so frustrating, you know? Sometimes I think that all of the godly men in this world are non-existent. Sometimes I doubt the fact that there really is one godly man out there, made specifically for me. It seems like the only men left out there are sleazeballs and jerk faces. Sometimes, I just let my sinful mind believe that maybe, just maybe, there are no Godly left in this world for me.

"Such a goal {to meet a real godly man} may seem unrealistic in today's world. Actually, is is unrealistic without leaning upon the Author of romance. But with His help, let's reach for something better than what our culture offers. While our society boasts of a warped and twisted perspective on true love, let's trust Him enough to sing a "sweeter song."
-Leslie Ludy "When God Writes Your Love Story"

So friends, while the rest of the world is laughing at you when you tell them that your waiting on God's perfect timing to bring your future Husband into your life, continue to trust in your savior. Seek Him. Trust Him. Allow your relationship with Jesus to reach new heights, reveal to Him everything on your heart, every day. No dream is too big for our God. He is GREATER.

"God laughs at odds. No matter how big the dream, how huge the request, how lofty the hope, or even how statistically impossible the task, He can do it--and infinitely immeasurably more. May God be seen for how great He really is!"
Ephesians 3:20

So friends, the truth revealed to me by Eric and Leslie Ludy last night was that even the times in which meeting our future man seem the most hopeless, he is still out there, waiting to meeting us. He isn't going to be that guy that you have to settle for, or that guy who you just KIND-OF like. He is going to be your prince charming, and God will blow your mind once He brings this man into your life.

The question is,

How long are you willing to wait on God?
