I've really been struggling with what God has for me, impatience with waiting for it, and finding myself falling when things get into a lull. The hardest part for me, though, is with waiting for who He has as a husband for me - if that's even in the cards at all. Ever since I was a little girl, I've always dreamt about the one day when I'll meet whoever I'm supposed to be with. But I believe that the idea has become a sort of idol for me, something that I'm putting above my need for a relationship with God. I know that I must rely solely on Him before any human relationship. It's just so hard, especially whenever I see my friends all in the middle of their college careers and having relationships and growing up, whereas I feel like I'm stagnant. Like I'm going to be stuck in this small town forever. Now, I know that that isn't true, but it's still tough. And I also know that this isn't anywhere near some of the other things that people post on here. It's just... I would really appreciate some prayer for this, to have God help guide me through this period of my life.Thanks.

Respond to This Prayer Request

    I completely understand how you feel, and it's nice to know I'm not alone in feeling this way too. Most people my age have graduated college this year, are getting married or engaged, and are living on their own. On the other hand, I am in a small town, living with my parents (it's way cheaper), still in college, and having a really hard time with entering into any relationship with a guy because I just can't tell if it's even time for me to date or if I'm meant to be single. And honestly I'm just really afraid of the dating scene and am beginning to see that I'm placing too much value in that rather than in Christ. So I completely get where you are coming from, and I will be praying for you too. You are not alone in this :)

    Ohhhh friend, I am right there with you. Everything you said, I just sat here going, "yep...yessss...check...that's me..." Haha we're definitely in the same place with this. The impatience, the hopes and dreams, wondering if you've let this become an idol...this is all something I face every single day, too. I understand all too well what you're feeling. (I wish we could just hang out and talk about it - it's so much easier to comfort and encourage someone else than it is to convince yourself of the same things!) So as I continue to pray diligently for myself and my own struggle with waiting, I will be including you in those prayers as well. I pray that God continues to refine and prepare both of us, and that we'll fall deeper and deeper in love with Him in the waiting.

    I understand what you're going through. Sometimes it feels like God is taking his good ol' time with my future husband. God's timing is best! But while you wait I recommend read thesinglewoman.net blog and Mandy Hale's books they have helped me be satisfied in the wait and enjoy the single life while I wait.
