To Mr. Right.

IMG_6395

Dear Mr. Right,

As a daydreamer with a vivid and colorful imagination, it was hard for me to put my daydreams of my fairytale man to the side. But I am.

It’s hard.

It’s hard to truly let go, and let God work. This comes from someone who is a recovering control freak…especially when it comes to relationships. I wanted to control every aspect: the meeting, the pursuit, the conversation, and the timing. I was always told that my Mr. Right is somewhere out there. After all, there are plenty of fish in the sea. But I didn’t want just a fish… I wanted my one true love and I wanted him NOW.

I was impatient. I searched for love and acceptance in all the wrong places. I sought it out in people that continually failed me. I would often see a guy in Starbucks and think, “could he be the one?”…I mean he did have really nice hair. I did not understand why I was the girl that never had the awesome boyfriend. To be honest Mr. Right, I would pray for you every night. I remember tears running down my face because I so badly wanted to find you. I truthfully wanted that fairytale moment with you, when our eyes met from across the room and we immediately fell in love. I wanted the fireworks and the distant sound of triumphant music and even the cute little floating hearts above our heads, because I thought, “I had found the one made just for me.”

But, our Father is so faithful. He is the one for which my soul was made. I was made to love Him! I was made to continually fall more and more in love with Him everyday. So Mr. Right, in response to your letter I am waiting. I am praying for patience. I am submitting my life to God. I am growing and learning how GOOD of a Father we serve.

And you are right. We need time . I need time to be patient and completely surrender my heart to God, I need to lay it all at his feet. I need to just be with him everyday. And to respond to your question “Am I okay with never getting married?”, I will be honest and say that if you asked me that a year ago I would have said a very clear and stern, “NO!” But that has completely changed. I feel led to say this, to tell you that you do not complete me, and I CAN live without you. It is something that I have struggled with, but our God is faithful. He is the one that holds me in His hand, and loves me unconditionally. Can you love me in that way? I’m not sure I can do that just yet.

So in the waiting Mr. Right, I’m praying for you and for God to strengthen our hearts in a way only he can (Psalm 27:14). To give us patience, and understanding when everything gets confusing and complicated.

Thinking of you and praying with you.

  1. I could say “NO” to a man, I would never say “NO” to children. I want to be a mother. show me a woman who does want to be a mother.

      1. Sweet sisters, the underlying purpose of these posts were this: we are so in love with Jesus that we would give any dream, any desire, any plan to Him so that we can better serve Him. At the end of it all, His Will will be done- we are constantly learning the act of dying to our selves so the Holy Spirit can surface through us. We are praying for you, that your relationship with Jesus will go to new depths. Thank you so much for your willingness to read what the Lord gave us. Love you already ❀️

    1. Thank you so so so much, but this is an area that we all struggle in. So, we are just watching the Lord work through our singleness- let me tell you, He is faithful and so so so consistent. Thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit show you the same thing He showed us in this post. Can’t wait to hear from you, Mae ❀️

      1. I believe that If God takes away something in us and if He is making us wait patiently while praying unceasingly, there is a very good reason for it. And it’s for the best. β™₯β™₯β™₯ο»Ώ

  3. After reading “An Open Letter to Mr. Right,” I was encouraged and challenged by your post to apply it to my life right now. Last fall I had made a commitment to the Lord to dedicate the year of my golden birthday to the Lord and actively pursue him and Him alone as the source of my life’s contentment. I struggled with being bit by the ‘bug of singleness’ as I watched all of my close friends start to pair off. It came to a point where I felt God asking me to choose between this young man I was interested in and waiting for His best. I chose to wait and I have to tell you, the reward is undeniably gratifying! I have unadulterated joy in developing a close personal relationship with the God of heaven! All the things I was searching for in a guy – one who’d cherish me, protect me, treasure me, tell me he loves me etc – all that can be found completely and perfectly in JESUS CHRIST! That being said, the only guy now that will turn my head will be the guy who looks like the one my soul loves first, my Lord Jesus, my beautiful Savior.

    While I haven’t yet gotten to meet “God’s perfect choice for me” (aka Mr. Right), I’m blissfully content in pursuing my Creator. Don’t I trust my God enough to allow us to cross paths, when He says it’s the right time? “Delight yourself in the Lord for He shall give you the desires of your heart.” (Ps. 37:4-5) “He hath made all things beautiful in His time!” (Ecc. 3:11) “As for God, His way is perfect.” (Ps. 18:30) If it’s God’s will for me to marry, I’ll meet Mr. Right on God’s terms, in God’s time. My daily prayer is “Not my will, but Thine be done!” His promises are true!

    Thank you for such an encouraging blog!

  7. I was reading “an open letter from Mr. right” and felt so encouraged. Every part of me wanted to become a lady that is so in love with God, and living a lifestyle that reflects that love. Also it made me so much more okay with waiting, even when my mind starts doubting. Then I read this letter, “To Mr. Right” and I was a bit disappointed at the beginning. True, we as godly ladies will wait, and will become someone that is worth a Mr. Right. But I am waiting for someone who is willing to be a man of God. Someone who is not just looking for a lady to respect him, but looking for a lady to care for; someone who handles the heart of a girl like it is made of gold, and not going around breaking hearts. And maybe most importantly, I am looking for someone who is not perfect. All of us on this earth are going to make mistakes whether we are married or not, so I want a man who is flawed, but is willing to work through his flaws and mine together. And I most certainly do not want somebody who will quit on this relationship because of hardships. The true Mr. Right will be manly enough face troubles and fight them head on. Together, as a married couple, we can build the kingdom of God.

  9. Thank you for this! I am twenty years old and I have never wanted to try and pursue a relationship. I feel that if I am meant to get married that God will bring the right guy, and if not I would be totally okay with being single. But all my friends are getting married, (and I know that they don’t mean to) but they all end up leaving me behind. I have become the third wheel in all of my old relationships. I feel pressured to find a guy by my family and friends. Comments get thrown around of “So, meet any cute guys lately?” “When are you going to get married?” and “You know your not gonna be young forever, your biological clock is ticking!” and they cut me! I want to stay faithful to God’s timing, and it is so hard with all of the outside pressure. This letter really encouraged me! Thank you so much for sharing your heart!
