In walks my Boaz (biblical Prince Charming), looking all tall dark and handsome to change my thoughts that all men are the same…..
He made me realize one thing though, that all boys are the same but not all men…. (Think on it)
Let’s back up though …
About 10 months ago I decided to get back on the dating scene. I wanted to experience real dates and get the chance to learn what I liked and disliked. Yes serial dating, as in going on as many dates as possible until I find a guy I see potential in to spend more time with. Some say this is the wrong way to do things. However, this is the only way I could see what I wanted and didn’t want. (Yes I’m very picky and indecisive) I wanted that old school dating experience or as old people say “Courting”.
We always say what we want in a guy but sometimes until we spend time with them it can change. Just when I was ready to give up on my spree the guy I never thought would be my type became my type. The guy that I needed at this point in my life came right on time.
Just like that Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome appeared.
I will admit I’m still in awe because I feel like I’m living a dream sometimes. Sometimes we go through so many bad guys, that when a good one comes along its hard to believe. Like how could this perfect gentleman like a little country girl like me??? Like what does he want with me?
I let my self-doubt and fears go and trusted God and prayed that God would bring the right guy in my life. After all my praying just when I least expected it in walks my Boaz.
Because for the first time ever I dated (or courted) the old school way and allowed myself to trust God for a good relationship. I let my mate pursue me for once and went on actual dates instead of Netflix & chill.
Yes that’s right I let him find me, date me (take me to more than just a movie) and make a commitment (not a situationship but a relationship).
He who finds a [true] wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing …
But before I allowed him to pick me up for the first time, I prayed for God’s guidance in this journey of dating and that I have discernment.
That was what I did differently, for the first time I allowed God to lead my love life.
In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
I’m just here to say that when the time is right God will send your soulmate your way. Stop stressing and worrying that you will never find anyone and you will be single forever. Trust your timing in your singleness, or your relationship.
