I remember being a junior in college and being single (my guy and I were “taking a break”). It seemed to me like every girl on the planet got a ring during that season of loneliness. No way around it: waiting hurts! You can lean into the pain in a bad way, focusing on your loneliness. Or you can lean into it in a good way, focusing on your love relationship with God. I chose to do the second one and even had a motto:
Jesus is Enough
God is Sovereign
It was my goal not to get married until I actually believed that. You know when I knew that I believed it? When I started genuinely celebrating after hearing the details of yet another romantic proposal!
