So You Don't Have a Boyfriend, Why Not Ask a Guy Out?

Over my Spring Break, I was asked that question. I really did not know what to say except "it's not in me to just walk up to a guy and ask him out." I guess you can call me crazy, but I have always dreamed of a man pursuing me, not the other way around. Being single, I find myself always being asked "do you have a boyfriend,?""when will you get a boyfriend?" or "Asia, you need to get out there and make yourself known." Sometimes when people approach me with these questions, I don't know what to say or how to act. We live in a culture that believes that you have to "date" a lot to find the right person.  Sometimes, I wonder what people think of me being 21 and having not been on dates. I use to wonder if I should change my personality maybe, I will get more attention from guys. I believe that there is a time and a season for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-5). In this time, I am using my single years wisely, building my relationship with Him, and praying and seeking Him. Everybody is searching for love and it is usually in the wrong places. They find themselves not satisfy. I know who my first Love is and He completely satisfies me. I want to guard my heart and emotions. I don't know when or if a guy will every be interested in pursing me and one day to get married. But, I do know that if God, has someone for me it will happen on His terms and His timing. I don't need to rush into a relationship or date a lot of guys to know if "he is the one." I believe in God's sovereignty, He will lead the person He has for into my life. Until then, I am just waiting, praying and trusting Him about the man He might have for me.

Seek To Be Pure....

1)Seek Him with all your heart
---it is to want, to desire Him, the need of Him above everything else.
2)Hide His Word in you heart
---Memorize His word, soon to see yourself speaking His word, who He is.
---So that you might not sin against Him when the Word is Hidden in your heart.
3)Meditate on His precepts
---To consider His ways by looking at in the Scriptures, not to neglect His Word.

Bible Verse:
Psalm 119:9-16

How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, O LORD;
teach me your decrees.
With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.

A Piece From My Journal

Last semester was really hard for me, I was dealing with a lot of childhood issues. One night I went to a small group and I just pour out everything, I was holding onto so much pain.

Abba, You are my love there is none like You. Right now I feel like hiding and getting away from everything. Tonight I cry out to You and ask You to help me. I am so lost and confuse and hurting. Would You take someone like me in Your arms? I want to dance with You forever. What else can I do? What else do I need to go through. I want to dance with You, I want to let every thing go. But I am so scared. I don't know what the future hold for me. Abba, take me and never leave me. Guide me in this life and never leave. Abba, my Prince, Lover of my soul, please lead and direct my steps. I love You. My love Your my everything. Abba, take me and let me know that everything will be alright. Because right now  I don't know what to do.  I cry out to You, my Prince. Please rescue me from this world and myself. Take me and let me know that everything will be okay. I lean on You and trust You. I know very little but You know all things. I no longer want to trust myself....
