A Guy to Complete Me?

So I got a new book called Sacred Singleness by Leslie Ludy. I love books about being single and waiting for the one. Well this one has really stirred me up! It's focused on during the time of singleness and getting in a deeper walk with God and falling in love with Him! Now I know how it feels to long for a godly guy to come and sweep me off my feet and carry me away to happily ever after. But you know what I don't need to wait for my "happily ever after" I can have it right now with Jesus! He can become my Prince Charming and the Lover of My Heart. I know that we girls tend to put our life on hold and say "Oh if I had a husband then I can really start living" But you know what there is a Love that will always keep you living if you will just let it! Now I am not saying don't ever get married or that you can't date. But to let God write your love story and let the time of singleness be a chapter (might be a few chapters for some of us lol) We don't need
a guy to complete us! We need the Husband of our souls! He can reach down into the deepest places of our heart that no human being can ever touch!

And to know the LOVE OF CHRIST which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the FULNESS OF GOD!
(Ephesians 3:18)

For he satisfieth the longing soul and filled the hungry soul with goodness (Psalm 107:9)

Oh Hallelujah to be filled with the most high God!! How amazing is that?? That those lonely nights when you could be out with some guy (boy do I have them) they can be offered up to God to be filled with his Awesome Love!

A good point in the book was that it's good to have a desire to be married! There is nothing wrong with that but don't let the desire have you! But to put your full focus on Jesus! God will bring you someone but while you are waiting to give your heart to the Ultimate Hero! Come on he died to save our very soul! How great is that? Our Prince who came down from heaven to become a servant all for Love sakes. Wow!! This time of singleness can be miserable or it can be used for God's glory and to get to know the Prince of our heart!

And to answer my question "A Guy to Complete Me?"
"And ye are COMPLETE in HIM, which is the head of all principality and power" (Colossians 2:10)

You wrote exactly how I felt back when I was single. I felt like I was reading my thoughts. One day I wrote in my journal that I had finally found perfect contentment in my singleness and in my relationship with the Lord and that I was done with searching for the "one". And wouldn't you know, a few months later God brought Brian and me together.

You have such a good head on your shoulders. I am so glad that I have gotten to know you through your blog. May God bless you above what you could think or imagine during this upcoming year.
