For the Love of Patience…

My friends sometimes laugh at my attempts to have Valentine’s Parties each year for those of us still waiting for our “Happily Ever Afters”… they say, “Oh that’s so cute,” or “Oh it’s just another SAD (Singles Awareness Day) party” But it is not. I am not “SAD” to be single. If there is anything I have learned in the past few months, it is that God’s timing is perfect and I am having the TIME of my life serving my Savior right now. Sure Satan tries to discourage me or get my mind going about *who* my future husband will be sometimes, but I want to be oblivious. I want to be about my Father’s business. Each and every day seeking ways to serve Him and honor Him with every breath, taking every opportunity for the gospel and seeking to pray for those He has strategically placed in my life to reach. I am so incredibly blessed. Here is a poem God put on my heart this morning from a verse we looked at during Small Group this week…

2 Corinthians 10:5~”Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”

Captivating

Every thought about my future

I need to give it up to You

You know my heart’s desire

so I will trust in what I know is true

 Capturing every hope and dream

to follow Your will

if any part is not Your plan

I will trust You still

These thoughts of “what if” 

are driving my heart mad

I know I need to just let go

and trust Your plans are better than any dream I’ve ever had

Captivating every thought to be patient

to not wish the future into play

confident Your plan will unfold 

and I will let YOU guide my way.
