For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Good jams on the way to church this morning
It always hits me around this time of night. The loneliness sets in when I realize I am 23 years old and I have never been in a relationship. Why is this something that I am scared of? I know God is preparing my heart to be the wife I will need to be for someone some day. But I wonder if that ‘some day’ will ever become a ‘day one’.
I am scared to death that all of these things I am working towards will never be. I am scared of love in that way. It is the thing I want most but why do I even want it?
See, the thing is I can’t want something because I think it will make me a better person or fill a place in my life that is empty.
My life isn’t empty. It doesn’t need filling.
Jesus should be the center of my life. He is what I revolve around.
My eyes need to look away from my feelings of loneliness and desire to share life with someone in the context of marriage if those things take my eyes off Him.
Once I stop feeling sorry for myself and looking introspectively at the situation is when I see things more clearly. That’s when my sight is Spirit led. My perspective shifts.
I am not looking for someone to make me feel loved. Well yes I am. But it’s more than that. I am looking for someone who loves Jesus, His Church, and His people so much that the way he loves me shows me that and makes me love him even more.
That is the man I am looking for. That is the man that when it is 3 in the morning and I can’t sleep will pray over me.
Jesus is the center of my solar system and I’m looking for someone to join me in building a life together that revolves around Him.
I will bite my tongue when people criticize me for being 23 and single. I will remind myself to be patient and not awaken love before its time.
Once I have you I am not ever letting you go. Once you are mine, I am yours and our cord of three will not be broken.
I don’t want to think of you like this every night when I don’t even know your name, but I will keep my eyes forward and my heart open.
