I'm often asked, "Why are you still single?", as if "singleness" is some type of death sentence. "You're way too pretty, too intelligent...too educated to be single". "You must be crazy", they say, as they study my pint-sized coke bottle figure. Most of the time I just grin and say something ultra spiritual like, "God's timing is perfect." But what I really want to say is, "I'm not interested in settling, and you are absolutely right...I am crazy!"
I'm crazy enough to believe that what God has for me is for me and no devil in hell can take that away. I'm crazy enough to believe that He is preserving me for a man that will recognize the God in me before he acknowledges my fleeting beauty. I'm crazy enough to believe that if I delight myself in the Lord He will give me the desires of my heart. I'm crazy enough to believe that the unconditional agape love that I desire is worth waiting for. I'm crazy enough to believe that my standards aren't too high and the man that deserves me will be honored to RISE to the occasion. I'm crazy enough to believe that my biological clock is irrelevant because I serve a God whose "timing" is perfect. I'm crazy enough to believe that when my dad does walk me down the aisle to the man of my dreams, he will thank me for not waking up too soon.
