I just want to love and be loved in return…is it too much to ask for or is it too early to ask? I’m a young woman trying to make ends meet, working a 9-5, trying to build a career, putting up a side hustle and working on a couple of personal projects, but most times, all I just need is to love and be loved in return. Sometimes, I want to come home to the thought of having my man at home to cuddle up or having a baby running around the house and I know it’s some huge responsibility, but my grandma did it, my mum did it, my pastor’s wife did it, my friends mother’s did it, my sister’s doing it and I know I can too.
Yeah, I understand times have changed, the economy is hard, genuine people are hard to find, the good ones you have are not ready for commitment because they want to make a mark first and build a comfy home for the future, but how long’s that gonna take? I want to wait… I’m willing to wait, but sometimes I feel I’m in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people and doing the wrong things, but again, ‘all things work together for good to them that love God’ and I can smile knowing my steps are ordered.
So… Dear Father,
Please send a man and let your will be done at the right time, because I think I’m ready, I feel I am and I believe you know better if I’m ready or not. So, do your will and have your way. IJN, Amen!
