Happy Valentines Day!
Now, I know what your thinking, here comes yet another single girls valentines blog post insisting she's perfectly fine about being single and that God is her prince charming and if He happens to bless her with a husband then that will be fine too!
This is NOT on of those posts!
(Well it kind of is.....but you'll see why I say this in a moment!)
I have always felt a little ooked out at being told by married, single, older then me, younger then me and pretty much every single article, book, blog post etc etc etc I've read on being content while single that God should fill the space in my heart that I have been selfishly holding back for my earthly prince.
I know that I should put God first in my life, I mean that's kind of a given. I know should strive to be content and spend time with Him everyday. I know that I should view Him as my all in all and my ultimate comforter and friend. I really do try to do that, but I still have an ache in my heart some days, a discontentment that won't quite go away! I have felt called to be a wife and mother someday and I still believe God will bring a man into my life one day! (hopefully soon! *fingers crossed*)
Now, If I follow the advice I've read I need to put God in that spot and view God as my prince until my earthly one comes along...
Erm, am I the only one who doesn't feel quite comfortable viewing God as a husband replacement? I don't want to feel the same way about God as I do about my husband.....just sayin'!
Seems to me if I truly used God as kind of a husband replacement until the real deal came along I would be forming unrealistic expectations of how my husband should love me, because being a human man he will disappoint me and not love me like God does! My relationships with God and my husband will two very different things. Yes, they will most definitely overlap, but I don't believe one will ever replace the other!
So, being told that I shouldn't be discontent because I already have my prince charming always annoyed rather then encouraged. I despaired of ever finding someone else who felt like I did. But, today I finally ran across an article that I LOVE and fully agree with. She echos my thoughts and feelings exactly!
