All the days of my life.
“Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.”
All the days of her life.
Not just when I meet my soulmate should I bring him good, but my whole life. Everyday.
“Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.”
-Song of Solomon 2:7
It’s okay to be single, it’s worth the wait. A love that God creates for you has unlimited potential for blessings. Don’t try and rush things, and don’t settle for second best. Listen to what God has for your life and follow it. He’ll lead you where you need to go.
”So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days.”
This verse encourages me. It assures me that even though the wait seems long in this moment, the moment will pass quickly.
Basically, I have come to realize that God will give me the desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4). He knows what’s best for my whole life, not just in the here and now. So my best option is to listen to Him and focus on becoming the virtuous woman I am called to be, so that whoever He puts in my path will observe and see that. Not me, but who I am in Him.
