I Will... Wait

God is so personal. I firmly believe God provides for us, personally, right when we need it.

I saw this video this morning and was overwhelmed by the message.

It was right when I needed it.

The message is directed at single women, but the message is universal. Are we willing to wait on His best for us...and be content that His best for us is Himself?

Jesus IS worth the wait for me.

But to my Father
My Father who has known me before I was birthed onto this earth
Only if You should see fit
I desire Your will above mine
So even if You call me to a life of singleness
My heart is content
You are the greatest love story ever told
You are the greatest love ever known
You are forever my judge
And I am forever Your witness
And I pray that I'm always found on a mission about my Father's business
I will always be Yours
And I will always wait for You, Lord
More than the watchmen wait for the morning
More than the watchmen wait for the morning, I will...

I don't know who Janette...ikz is, but I wish I could give her a big old hug right about now. Watch the video. You'll want to hug her too.

And you'll probably wish you felt cool and brave enough to fix your hair like hers.

And wear bangles on both arms, not just one.

Or is that just me?



  1. Where was this amazing woman in 1993! How many times have you heard it's all in God's timing, huh? Here's another :)

    I will wait...that was my mantra...but I got married at 29...pressure from family and the world, etc. HOWEVER, I was STUPID, weak and settled to make "the one" out of him instead of waiting for God's choice for me. I convinced myself that because he was a pastor that he must be "the one". However, once the wedding ceremony was complete, everything became clear - but it was too late. His pseudo walk with God lead us to his porn addiction, lying, adultery, abuse - you name it. And I stuck it out for 10 years because we had a son and I thought I could fix the mess I had gotten myself into. After all, it was my fault.

    After he finally left us, it took years of healing by God (with wonderful Christian counseling and incredible friends) for both me and my son. My son still bears many scars by a man who continually emotionally damages him every time he surfaces back into his life. After several years of being a joyous single mom, God brought along HIS best for me. And I almost let my past destroy what God was trying to do; I didn't want to date or marry anyone. (sometimes my husband will tease me and tell me he's sorry that God made me marry him <3)

    My son and I now have a wonderful father and husband who mirrors our Heavenly Father. We are so thankful. But how much ugly could have been avoided for both my son and I, if I had just resisted and walked away from a relationship that was not of God? I wish every young woman could see this video BEFORE it's too late. Thanks so much for sharing it, Erin!

  2. Phenomenal!! I am so glad you found this,and you shared this!! Im currently in a relationship but I definitely had to wait... I was 23 and it was my first relationship ever!! No elementary school boyfriends or anything. I definitely felt all that pressure and loneliness, and wondering if I would ever find anyone, especially since all my friends were getting married and having kids right out the gate. I even had pressure from my pastor who couldn't figure out why I couldn't find a "nice young christian man." I've always admired your embrace of singledom and took comfort that there was another lively, social, wonderful woman who was single. I only wish this embrace of being single was around when I *was* single :)

    PS I totally plan on sharing this video with the city girls (and guys) at my church in the future! Thanks...for it all :)
