Psalm 27:1

So, do you have a boyfriend?

The older I get the more and more often that I get this question. And for those of you who don't know... no I'm not in a relationship right now.

And honestly, I'm probably not quite ready to be in one just yet. It was hard for me to admit that since I have several friends who are younger than me who are in serious relationships. But it was talking to them that made me come to my conclusion. Let me explain.

Relationships take work. They take time and they take commitment. They require being vulnerable with each other and working through differences. They require your full focus.

And right now, I'm dealing with some things in my life that probably need my full focus right now. There's some things I need to work on in my life before I can be fully invested in a relationship with a guy.

That's not saying I don't want to be in one - it's just that I know God knows the timing that's best for me and He'll bring someone along when that time has come.

I guess I'm just trying to be a good steward with what I have now instead of looking for something else.

So, meanwhile I'll be working on myself and some the issues I've been dealing with. I'll keep serving God right here where I am and be patient.

Next time someone asks me why I don't have a boyfriend, I guess this will be my script. :P
