Growing up, I did not know the word of God and consequently I did not know my worth. Therefore, I gave my heart and my body away, countless times, without any regard for how devastingly it would affect me.
Little did I know I was constantly looking for what I already had ALL ALONG...a God that loves me more than I can comprehend.
I didn't know that a real man would fight for me and hold my purity as the most sacred thing in the world. I didn't know I didn't have to give a man my body until I felt ready, safe and loved and no second sooner.
I didn't know how to just be me and trust that I was enough. I didn't even know me.
Thankfully, I have been chosen, saved and ransomed by the blood of Christ. When I finally acknowledged to myself the truth that Christ is, in fact, my Savior, I vowed to let God choose a man for me.
So, willingly, I have been taken on a journey of profound healing for the past 10 years.
Like the gentleman that He is, God did not leave any stone unturned in the healing of my heart.
In fact, He didnt just heal it, he gave me a whole new one...as though NONE of my past EVER happened!
He has washed me with His word and made me new again through His son.
And if that wasn't enough, He has been showing me, in the most intimate ways how personally and fierecly He adores, cherishes and loves ME.
I have never been married. I am grateful for that because I was not ready to love.,especially in the way the bible talks about love in a Godly marriage. I needed to first love God...not out of obligation, but out of sheer joy.
Then I needed to love myself. Which, to me, means knowing how fiercely I am loved by God through His word and asking Him to help me receive this overwhelmingly good news.
And now, finally, after 10 years of waiting, I am ready to love a man, date and enter into a beautiful marriage that will brilliantly display the glory of the Lord brighter than any diamond.
If I could I would tell every woman in the world how amazing these past ten years have been I would because I believe most woman will not know their value and how profound and amazing it is to let the Lord restore you and to trust in His divine timing.
All I have is my words and my story and I pray that these will help to give woman the courage and trust to allow the love of Christ to change them forever and to be willing to wait as long as it takes.
Because, even though I have not met anyone yet, I still feel like it has all been worth it.
I love you! XO
