What do you think when you see many young adults around you partaking in godly relationships, finding their life partners and falling in love, for real?
I feel lonely.
I am single, and seventeen with no prospective husband or boyfriends on the horizon. I have few guy friendships, and most of them are shallow.
I feel discouraged. I am doing all this waiting, keeping my heart for my future husband, while the world is continually shouting at me: Give it up! You can have all that right now! Why wait?
Give me a break.
I dont know anyone who has actually felt anything for me. No boy has ever confessed to me that he wants to start a relationship. Not once.
I am only seventeen. I am only young. I have many years in the future to look forward to. Thats what I keep telling myself.
How do you get courage when you are discouared? How do you keep pushing on when you are tired, and your knees are about to give out underneath you?
In our unmarried years, we are to be especially devoted to the Lords work, but all I can think about is that I do not have a guy who will hold my hand.
Each day is a journey. Dont beat yourself up because your not perfect. God loves you the way you are, but He wont leave it there. He is going to change you into the person you wish you were.
I will try again tomorrow, Lord willing.
