As a single lady, I understand the challenges and pressure that may come with this period. Have you ever let someone that seemed like the ‘one’ into your heart and it doesn’t end up working? I have been there and I can tell you for free that it hurts! I came across this poem originally written by Robin Jones Gunn and it encouraged me to completely submit this area of my life to God; so I thought to share. Be encouraged, the Lord will make everything beautiful at the right time.
Here it goes:
“Within my heart a garden grows
Wild with violets and fragrant rose.
Bright daffodils line the narrow path
My footsteps silent as I pass.
Sweet tulips nod their heads in rest,
I kneel in prayer to seek God’s best.
For round my garden a fence stands firm
To guard my heart so I can learn
Who should enter and who should wait
On the other side of my locked gate.
I clasp the key around my neck
And wonder if the time is yet
If I unlocked the gate today
Would he come in or run away?
I don’t want to hold this key
Lord, will You keep it safe for me?
Then when he comes
If he’s the one
You’ll unlock the gate
Until then, I’ll wait.“
Poem culled from: Praying for your Future Husband by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer, pg.95.
