Love is Here.

"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength."

Something I've had to remind myself of so many times already this semester is that it is GOD's timing, not mine - in every aspect.

I have friend's (or know people) who are married, or engaged, or have a serious boyfriend, or have their third boyfriend of the semester. And then there's me.... who has nobody. No boyfriend, no "possibilities."

A close friend of mine is trying to balance friends/boyfriend time... but at the same time, trying to spend more time with friends. "I have a lifetime to spend with him."

Then it hit me. (well... a few hours later.)

The friends I have right now are amazing. They are the friends I always dreamed of having when I was in high school. I had very few friends - as true as some of my current friends - before I came to college. I should be taking full advantage of these friendships now.

With that in mind.. I think God hasn't brought me to the right guy (or any), because I have a lifetime with him.

I'm content.
I have time.

"Love is here.
Love is now.
Love is pouring from
His hands, from his brows.
Love is near, it
Streams of mercy flowing from his side.
'Cause love is here."


  1. Jessica,
    We have been teaching a purity course with our youth group for the last 7 weeks and if there is something I have found (6 years into marriage) it's this: If you are following God's will for YOUR life, you don't need heart-breaking boyfriends along the way. They are a distraction, take your time, energy and steal it from the true love in your life, God. IF you are following God's will, and if your future husband is following God's will for his life, you WILL meet. You won't simply cross paths, you will meet and not seperate. You will come from different directions, meet and continue in the same direction.

    Continue to seek and follow God, the one we can't live without and you will find true love and then be able to share that perfect love with your husband. Praying for you. (((Big Hugs))))
