Why Wait, Lord?

I have asked the question so much, and so have many people in this world! Why wait? I don't see the reason to wait. I am a good strong healthy person, who would dearly love to start a family, and I don't see any prospects of a husband in sight. I have often cried myself to sleep on my queen sized bed, cuddling with my pillows. I wished many times it was my husband there, instead of my pillows, but then I hear a voice inside me say, " I need you to rely on me first, then I will give you the desires of your heart!

Now I am not asking the question, " Why wait?" but "When You are Ready, Lord?" I know that if I quit looking, the groom will come to me, and he will be more then I have asked for, in a husband. A godly man, seeking the face of God, who has a deep heart to raise children up to be the next generation of Christfollowers, and that would be his ultimate goal in that end, as well as my being a helpmeet to him, in all of his endeavours! Wow, that sounds like a lot, but for someone like me, who has been enlightened, I would consider it an honor and a privelege to do so, raise children for God's Glory, and support my husband at home!

I have two sisters who have started the race of marriage before me. I have so longed to be on their level and relate to them, and their problems. But married sisters have a hard time sharing with unmarried sisters, because the unmarried do not know what the others are going through.

One of my sisters had a baby recently, and I was a tiny bit jealous! I wished it was mine. But the Lord, said, " You could have a part in the influence of Gabriel, for he will need his aunty to show him the ways of the Lord, and confirm the words of his parents!" So, in a sense, I will be a surrogate mother to Gabriel!"After all, his name means, God is my strength, and Gift of God!" So I know that he will be a big man of God someday!:)

I am going to be 26 in February, and I know that there are a lot of single christians out there, that are near my age, and I also know of those, who have married later in life! So, there is still hope for me! I know that, I would still have 20 more years of childbearing, before I could give up hope of bearing my own!

And if I never marry, Hallelujah! I could spend my time with my nephews and neices, helping my sisters and brothers-in-law, raise the children! And I may be a missionary to children, through the stories I write, and the photos I take!

So my prayer is not, " Send my husband soon, Lord!" But, " Trust in the Lord with ALL YOUR HEART, and LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING! IN ALL YOUR WAYS, acknowlege him, and He will direct your PATHS!For you know the Plans you have for me, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give me a rewarding end! I place my life in the hands of the Lord, and He can use me any way He so desires! Amen!He knows what I need, and when I need it!

Enough of my ramblings!

I hope you have a good and rewarding day, and that the Lord would bless you exceedingly!
