For those of you that haven’t heard the exciting news…my boyfriend “Jordan” proposed and we are now engaged!! :) :)
We are so excited and can’t wait for the big day!! I never thought this day would come for me. It seemed like all of the other girls were already married, having babies, and way ahead of me. I felt like I was the only single girl around lol.
I had in mind what kind of man I was looking for, but never came close to finding anyone that matched up with the mental picture I dreamed of for so long. Years passed by with Mr. Right still nowhere to be found. I began to wonder if my standards were too high and if I was searching for a man that didn’t even exist on this planet. After all, I wanted a good Christian man that had good solid Christian morals and values and was on the same page as me (as far as beliefs, morals, values, etc). I was looking for a man with a soft heart that loved and served the Lord and desired the same things that I desired. I could go on and on…. But in my heart I couldn’t lower my standards…I knew what I was looking for and was determined to wait for it and not willing to settle for less. More time passed by and I begin to wonder again if my standards were too high…still no Mr. Right…still haven’t come close!!
Finally I realized that I could search high and low and I will still end up with nothing. I realized that I couldn’t find such a wonderful thing all on my own. I realized that everything that we have on this earth is a gift from God. When I realized this, I stopped searching and started waiting on God. I asked God for someone that was perfect for me.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
I knew that he was going to bring someone in my life that was perfect for me. God knew exactly what I needed and boy did He come through!!! :) :)
What a precious gift from God!! He made Jordan just for me and made me just for him. That is so incredible to me and I am truly blessed!!
During the wait I’ve learned that I can’t find something like this on my own. Everything we have is a gift from God. God brought Jordan into my life, the most precious gift I have ever received. The biggest blessing!! And I never could have made something like this happen on my own. I could have searched forever for the type of man I was looking for but would turn up empty handed. When I surrendered to God and asked Him to bring Him to me, it was then Jordan came walking into my life.
Thank you for blessing me with the most precious gift I have ever received. Thank you for giving me someone that will truly cherish me and treat me with the most love and kindness anyone could ever ask for. I know that this gift has come from you and I have ever so grateful. Amen!
