Hiii everyone I found this message on this website http://godlydatingandfeelings.tumblr.com/page/3 And I found it very interesting... I hope it can be a blessing for all of you A Letter From Mr. Right Dear daughters of God, Contrary to what you have heard, I do exist. Iâ€™m no fairytale hunk with big muscles and thing for chick flicks (although, I may or may not have a man bun). So, put your daydreams of love off to the side for a minute and let me tell you what makes me, â€œMr. Rightâ€ and why people keep telling you to wait for me. The first thing I really want for you to understand is that I was not born your Mr. Right. I promise we werenâ€™t destined to cross paths and lock eyes from across a crowded room and fall hopelessly in love. God has been working in my heart for YEARS! Do you realize what was in my heart before Christ saved me?! Of course you donâ€™t because we havenâ€™t met yet, but I can promise you it is equally as crazy and sinful as what youâ€™ve been walking through. That is why I need some timeâ€¦ And it is also why you need the same. Letâ€™s do each other a huge favor and give one another the time to heal from our pasts and become something different; something whole. I know that youâ€™ve spent a lot of time feeling less than whole, like youâ€™re missing something, and so have I. But now we have both been made new in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) and need to take some time to learn to walk in this new wholeness. So, Iâ€™m going to give you that space and promise not to pursue you until God has made it clear that you are in the right season in your faith. But here is the kicker and the second thing I need you to knowâ€¦ As patient and trusting in Godâ€™s timing as I am, this thing between you and I also hinges on your obedience and trust in the Lord. Have you ever read the Song of Solomon? There is a part in there that I will never forget. It says, â€œPromise me, O women of Jerusalem (Daughters of God); not to awaken love before the time is rightâ€ (NLT Emphasis Mine). Let me fill you in on why she says that. She is begging women not hurry into love for two reasons; one, because the real thing is so worth the wait. And two, because being joined with a person out of season is one of the most painful things someone can experience. Sure you can frolic in lala land for a little while, but what happens when the romance and passion subsides and your left with just your hearts, left open and bare? What happens when the struggles hit and the person youâ€™re with isnâ€™t strong enough to fight the good fight of faith? What happens when they mess up and youâ€™re expected to show them the same grace Christ showed you? Iâ€™ll tell you what happens, things will fall apart. Whether on the surface or beneath it, things will fall apartâ€¦. Thatâ€™s the truth, if two people are not both firmly rooted in their faith in Christ, they will suffer for that lack together. I could walk you through almost any church and show you marriage after marriage where people are suffering because they aroused love before itâ€™s time. They are paying for the consequences of that decision decades down the road. Which is why we must join together in patience, even though we are apart. Here is what we are working towards and the third thing I need you to know: God has asked me to be so much like Christ that you are able to submit to me as unto Him (Ephesians 5:22-33). And He is asking you to be able to submit to me and point me to Jesus by your actions, even when Iâ€™m acting like a fool (1 Peter 3:1-6). So take a minute and thinkâ€¦ Could you really do that right now? Iâ€™m getting closer, but I donâ€™t think I could do that just yet. But when God gives me a peace about the continual growth of my own faith, I will know and Iâ€™ll be obedient to pursue you. And you will know that it is me because I will respectfully, tactfully, and politely pursue you with very clear intentions. When a guy begins to talk to you, know that itâ€™s me because Iâ€™ll be respectful and not flirting with you via text. Know that itâ€™s me because Iâ€™ll be clear that Iâ€™m asking you on a date and wonâ€™t create an atmosphere where you have to question what we are doing or where we stand. Know that itâ€™s me because when we are dating, Iâ€™ll not only be respectful of your emotional and physical boundaries, but also have some of my own. And know that itâ€™s me because Iâ€™ll be more interested in your faith and what your relationship with Jesus looks like than being romantic and creating surface level connections. So, please wait for me. For your sake and my own, wait. Wait because God is telling you to wait. Wait because you have more growing to do. Wait because I have more growing to do. And wait because it will be worth it. Because at the end of the day, the reason Iâ€™m not pursuing you yet is because Iâ€™m just not ready. And the reason youâ€™re not being pursued by me yet is that youâ€™re just not ready. So join with me in individually submitting to Godâ€¦Even if that means that there actually isnâ€™t a Mr. or Mrs. Right waiting for usâ€¦ Can we be ok with that? Can we trust God and be okay with whatever the outcome, knowing that we have already received all we need in His Son? Thatâ€™s a hard question, but until youâ€™re in a place where youâ€™re okay with never getting married, you wonâ€™t be in a place where I will be able to pursue you. Thinking of and praying for you, â€“ Mr. Right unfilteredmovement.wordpress.com
