I'm Still Waiting For You To Be The One I'm Waiting For

I think for the first time in my life I'm content to be single. I'm realizing God has something awesome in store for me, but that I need to have some patience in the meantime. However, after talking to a lot of people/mostly girls lately, I'm realizing it's not a bad thing to be aware of the type of guy I would (God willing) want to marry someday. 

So if I could make a  list... or a recipe, rather, I think this would be the man I want to marry, but not in this order.

  • Blonde Hair
  • Blue Eyes (my weakness haha)
  • Tall
  • Has nice hands (weird... I know) 
  • Friendly
  • Good sense of humor/can be goofy, but knows when to bring it in
  • Intelligent 
  • Loyal!
  • Affectionate, but knows when/where to stop
  • Has a heart for the lonely/hurting
  • Musical (preferably sings and plays guitar or piano) 
  • Someone who is slow to anger 
  • Encourages me in my walk with God as I do him
  • Has a tremendous amount of compassion and isn't judgmental
  • Has integrity and character
  • Is my absolute best friend
  • Someone who follows through/a man of his word
  • Can identify and is aware of his weaknesses
  • Respects me 
  • Respects himself
  • Loves kids
  • Is gentle 
  • Romantic but realizes the value of everyday love more than the little things
  • Has overcome very difficult situations in the past (I know this sounds bad, but I think it builds character)
  • Knows what it is to love (I think this is the most rare of all) 
  • Most importantly though, he has an understanding of life and the love/grace of Jesus Christ so much so that it overflows into everything he does, is, is not, and will be. 
At the end of the day, I just want someone to cherish and someone to cherish me, but I hope this is a close picture of the person I marry someday... again, God willing. 

I want to marry a man who loves God more than he'll ever love me and who is secure with me loving God more than I love him (I think that's were so many of us go wrong). I know I've jokingly, and not so jokingly, said I never want to get married. But that isn't true. I do. However, I only want to marry the person who I know I can serve God better together with than without him. Lord help me to continue to be patient! 

I'm still waiting for you to be the one I'm waiting for...

so how much of this list are you willing to sacrifice if the guy for you doesnt actually fit your definition of perfect?

Maybe I'm Amazed said...

Well I mean obviously some qualities are more important than others :) Physical things pale in comparison to a person's character. I probably shouldn't have listed those first haha I just felt like they were easier :)
