Dear sister, if you like a Christian brother, wait for him to pursue.
If you are a faithful wife to Christ—loving Him in spirit and in truth, devoted to Him, honoring Him with a holy life—and are serious about being that kind of wife for an earthly husband, all you need to do is pray.
If you know a single brother who is likewise loving and honoring the Lord, and you like him, pray if God so wills, to lay you on this brother’s heart and have him pursue you. Then forget about it.
Go and continue focusing on the Lord, spending quality time with, loving Him like Mary Magdalene did who sat at His feet and soaked in His Word. Use the gifts He’s given you to serve Him (if you won’t serve the perfect God, what makes you think you will serve an imperfect man?)
It’s as simple as that. Loving and obeying your Heavenly Husband first. That’s what I was doing when Sir Jonathan came galloping into my life. I wasn’t going to church to search for a husband. I was simply hungry for God’s Word. I wasn’t on an online dating site. I wasn’t signing up to several bible studies in hopes that I’d meet a cute godly brother.
God works things out. You do know He has a book written on your life, right? Trust me, you don’t want it to say:
“My daughter was supposed to wait, cast her cares upon Me, and let Me be enough, but then she began pursuing a man I did not desire her to be with, and they got married. She will drift away from Me for ten years and then will come back once the man has divorced her.”
Don’t make it happen. Let it happen. Your Father has a Son He will cause to pursue you. Are you trusting Him, or yourself?
What are your thoughts, ladies? Any prayer requests or testimonies? Please feel free to share them in a comment.
