I met her at church camp in 2009, and since then she's been a sister, role model, mentor and friend to me. In our MANY conversations, we've discussed God, boys, school, and every other thing that teen girls talk about. When we talk about our relationships though, it's different. I used to tell her that I wish I had a boyfriend to make me "happy." She would always come back with the reasoning that God is the only one who can fill the hole in my empty heart. Just this week though, as she and I were talking, she said that if I never get married, have a boyfriend, or have anyone interested in me, I need to be okay with that. I needed to realize that God is the only thing that I will EVER need. And once I start realizing that (which I am in the process of), God will bless me beyond what I can imagine. Now, don't get me wrong; I've been blessed beyond words! If I would write out all of the blessings that come to my head, it would fill up an entire sheet of notebook paper front and back and probably more.
But all I need to remember is that God has my best interest in mind, and He will never do anything to harm me. In fact, He know the desires of my heart and He will give them to me just as long as I love and adore Him. (Psalm 37:4) So if you are going through something right now and you don't think that you'll ever be "happy", just try to remember that if you give it all up to God, and I mean ALL of it to Him, He'll bless you with things that you didn't even know you wanted! He will help you along your way too! His help is always with you! He says in Joshua that He will never leave you or forsake you! Live by that; Learn from it.
And I hope you all have that one person that you can love and count on like I do. Love you Ally!
Lord Bless You.
