A Heart That is Set Apart

"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."
                                                                                         Galatians 6:9

      I am hearing more and more of young ladies who are trying to live a godly life but finding out just how hard that life can be. First off you must know that you are not alone. There have been many girls/women, myself included, who have had struggles in this area. You feel like no other girls like you because you are different or that no guy will like you because you are considered a "good" girl. This is so not true and there are so many passages in Scripture that would disprove this lie that we all believed at one point. We are daughters of the King who are cherished more than precious jewels. Yes, it is sometimes very lonely when you don't go along with what the world says is right but we don't serve the world. We serve a King who knows the plans He has for us and He is faithful to complete them.
      It is important to know this, even those times when you feel alone and think that no one is taking notice of you that is probably not the case. When you are following Christ it IS evident in your life and people can see that. Especially when it comes to relationships you will be noticed if you are different. But this is ok, what a witness you have when you are holding to high standards in order to keep your name pure.
       This is my last little input for any girl who is anxious. God has not only set young women like yourself apart but also young men. There are strong godly men out there who are waiting and seeking for godly women like yourself. The more active I get in the youth ministry the more I see this to be true. I have met many young guys who are going to be wonderful husbands to you girls who remain strong in your faith. Don't let the world discourage you from doing what God has called you to do. It is very much worth the wait and the struggle. Continue to seek after Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.

*Pray Pray Pray!!!! Pray for godly friends to help hold you accountable and encourage you. Pray now for the guy who will one day be your husband. Pray for your heart, that it will be guarded from lies and worldly things.
