Vikings To my boyfriend I wish I could turn back the clock to find you sooner and love you longer mug is available. What if we lived in the absolute assurance of God’s love? I had a conversation with a mom whose eldest daughter is 30 and has never had a boyfriend. She sat with her mom and tearfully said, “Why can’t I find anyone to love me? What’s wrong with me?” I remember being the only one of my friends without a boyfriend and feeling that same hurt. But here’s the thing I wish I had known then … I must process this hurt through the filter of God’s love, not the tangled pieces of my heart. When I process things through my heart, the outcome is, “If God loves me so much, why would He let this happen?”

It is so important to remember that there is absolutely nothing wrong with anyone who is at any age and not married or dating or whatever. We are taught from a young age (thanks to Disney fairytales) that we are supposed to grow up fall in love, get married, live in a nice house, have kids etc…that is ONLY what society deems as mormal. No where in any of those fantasies does God’s plan for our life come into play. We have to insert God into reality and remove socitial expectations in order to be whatever version of normal we are, which is perfectly acceptable to God. To my boyfriend I wish I could turn back the clock to find you sooner and love you longer.
I’m 30 years old, and I’ve never actually had had a boyfriend. I’ve dated, but nothing last more than a few weeks, or maybe a month or two at the most. I’ve been lucky to meet a few really wonderful guys, but I won’t stay with someone just because they treat me well- that would be taking advantage of someone’s goodness. I’m hoping that the right one is out there for me, the one who will help me grow in my faith and we can fall in love because we are both in love with the Lord first. It sounds so cheesy and unrealistic, but I suppose this is what I’m holding out for. I pray often that if it is God’s will, he will send me the right one, and if not, that I have the grace to accept that He has called me to be single in this life.
