All The Single Ladies

I am a helpless

romantic

 

and I long for a special man

for every woman

 

a prince for every princess

who longs for a prince

 

But even more than this

 

I long for you, single women,

to know your groom Jesus first

 

I long for you to want Him

more than any man

 

I long for you to know Him

and love Him first

 

before you find your Mr. Wonderful

 

I long for you to be so grounded in Truth

and the Truth-Speaker, Jesus,

 

that no human man

could take His place

 

No groom will match

the One who chose you first

 

And no romance will compare

to the one you can have with Him

 

If you can only see it

and hear it

and feel it

 

If only you can KNOW it

 

That is what I long for

for you

 

What a gift our Groom is

to the whole body of Christ

 

He gave everything

for us

 

and He is unswervingly faithful

and true

 

This is love,

 

True Love

 

– Susie Stewart

 

 

This is the embodiment of true love: not that we have loved God first, but that He loved us and sent His unique Son on a special mission to become an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

– 1 John 4:10 (VOICE)

 

I made you. I am now your husband. My name is the Lord Who Rules Over All. I am the Holy One of Israel. I have set you free. I am the God of the whole earth.

– Isaiah 54:5 (NIRV)

 

And then I’ll marry you for good—forever! I’ll marry you true and proper, in love and tenderness. Yes, I’ll marry you and neither leave you nor let you go. You’ll know me, God, for who I really am.

– Hosea 2:19,20 (MSG)

 

Now is the time for joy and happiness.
        He deserves all the glory we can give Him.
    For the wedding feast has begun; the marriage of the Lamb to His bride has commenced,
        and His bride has prepared herself for this glorious day.

    She had been given the finest linens to wear,
        linens bright and pure,
        woven from the righteous deeds of the saints.

– Revelation 19:7,8 (VOICE)

 

You’ll get a brand-new name
    straight from the mouth of God.
You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand,
    a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
    and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight),
    and your land Beulah (Married),
Because God delights in you
    and your land will be like a wedding celebration.
For as a young man marries his virgin bride,
    so your Builder marries you,
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride,
    so your God is happy with you.

– Isaiah 62:3-5 (MSG)

    1. I really wish I had known so many things then that I know now. I guess that’s what all about growth in Jesus is all about. Thank you, Shari, for your comment ❤
