In the movies, you always see the great hero, a knight in shining armor, riding gallantly on his white steed. He comes to the maiden, and he kisses her, then takes her away to his castle to be his bride. And that’s true love…isn’t it? That’s the Mr. Right. The “right one”. The prince.
So how do we know which one is that “prince”? The guy who smiles at us a lot, gives us lots of attention? Or maybe the not so gallant Christian boy who goes to our church?
Sometimes it can be really hard to tell. How are we suppose to know which man God has for us? Which one is our prince? Which boy should we consider seriously…and know that it’s God’s will?
Prayer is the answer—definitely. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3: 5-6) Which means that He will show us His will about a boy if we trust in Him.
For me, I thought it might be easier if I knew what I was looking for. I made a list that is my guideline, so that I will not be tempted to settle. When I consider a boy, I look at his life and compare it to my list. Here it is:
1. A Godly Christian who shares a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
2. Kind, gentle, and affectionate
3. Laid Back
4. Hard worker
5. Wants a lot of kids (that’s a must with me :))
6. Fairly good with money
7. Country boy 🙂
8. Reasonably handsome. (I must find him attractive)
Maybe it would be a help to you, too, if you were to make a list. And remember, prayer is the answer for finding His will… 🙂 🙂 🙂
