For you who are single, let me give you this advice as you hunger and wait to find the right person in marriage: instead of trying to find the right person, become the right person! It's a piece of marriage advice my Dad gave me long ago as I was waiting for the right person in my life. Here it is again: "Son," he said, "instead of trying to find the right person, work hard to become the right person."
As I waited, I disciplined my body with exercise. I disciplined my eating with a good diet. I disciplined my mind with reading and study. I disciplined my thought life to think only on things that are good and honorable. I disciplined my prayer life to depend solely on God for everything in my life. I disciplined my relationships, surrounding myself only with people who edify and encourage. Similarly, I eliminated those in my life who were dream killers.
I had to wait for my wife for almost eight years. But when we finally met, I was ready for her in every way: mind, body, spirit, attitude and relationships.
I hope my Dad's advice helps you singles today!
