Good Things Come
With all of our gumption and gusto, we as kick butt girls have a problem. Well, we have lots of problems J But this is a problem all girls share. And it’s called waiting.
We hate it.
We live in a world where we want what we want and we want it now. If I don’t know the answer to the question, I Google it or text ChaCha. If I’m hungry, I speed through a drive thru or pop something in the microwave. OnDemand, Amazon, and about a million other things have made it so we can have what we want almost instantly.
So what if we can’t get it?
We pout. We cry. We get angry, frustrated, and wonder why in the world things aren’t working out how we want.
This last weekend, one of the high schools in my area had Homecoming. A super fun time of dressing up, going out to eat, and maybe even celebrating a first date.
But then there are those kick butt girls who didn’t get asked. Who sit at home and wonder, “What in the world is wrong with me? Where’s my night out? Where’s my Prince Charming?”
Let me tell you something, kick butt girl: Prince Charming isn’t in high school. He isn’t dating a cheerleader or starring in the school play.
He’s hidden inside those guys roaming your halls. And what’s going to bring him out? Not a short skirt or a flirty move.
It’s waiting. Waiting for him to grow up. Waiting for him to mature. Waiting for him to figure out who he is and who God has called him to be.
So the next time you feel yourself drifting down the “I hate being single” highway, stop. U-turn. And remember that your Prince Charming is out there.
And the longer you wait, the more charming he will be. And that’s what you deserve.
