A friend gave me this poem and I never forgot it. It was and still is a tremendous blessing to me. I encourage every girl to copy it down and put it somewhere where they will see it often. It's a great reminder to just wait and trust the heart of your Heavenly Father who loves you more than anyone!
Be Satisfied with Me
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.
But to a Christian, God says, "No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me alone, with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me, with having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone.
Discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united to another until you are united with Me, exclusive of anyone or anything else. Exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing....one that you cannot imagine.
I want you to have the best!
Please allow Me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest thing. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you. Just wait, that's all.
Don't be anxious. Don't worry. Don't look around at things others have gotten or that I have given them. Don't look around at the things you think you want. Just keep looking off and away up to Me or you'll miss what I want to show you. And then, when you are ready, I will surprise you with a love far more wonderful than you would ever dream. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time, until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me. And this is perfect love.
And, dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with Myself. Know that I love you utterly. For I am God. Believe it, and be satisfied.
I guess my first post should explain the reason behind it!
Why start a second blog on my site just for teen girls? Because I believe it is important to give girls as much information and encouragement as possible, after all, waiting is hard to do!
The world is seeking to destroy our faith and the importance of waiting on God. You see it in everything they publish: "don't wait, if it feels good just do it; do whatever makes you happy!". They never bother telling them the rest of the story, which usually isn't a "Happily ever after".
I want girls to realize just how special they are in the sight of God and that, though hard, it is best to wait on Him.
My goal for this blog is to share stories, poems and articles that will, I hope, encourage and help teens and young girls alike as they wait on God. I would also encourage you to read my article on waiting that is posted on my other blog and perhaps make a word study on the word "Wait" in the Bible, I promise it is time well spent!
Thank you for stopping by and I welcome comments!
