Hello lovelies that I know and lovelies that I do not~
I think that what the author discusses is an issue with the large majority of girls and women today, but it’s not something anyone is truly working to change in their own hearts and it’s causing a lot of unnecessary harm in their lives. Personally, as much as I love to think that I’m a fine and dandy Christian and my #1 focus is God and his glory, deep down I know that’s definitely not true. I’ve always had an issue with being boy-crazy and devoting way too many of my thoughts and way too much of my heart to the idea of romantic love. Now I realize not all girls and women are like this, but even if you’re not like that, this could still very well be a deeper-down issue for you personally. I know that it’s a big issue for me for numerous reasons: For starters, the idea of never getting married *greatly* upsets me, and I assure myself by thinking “God would never do that, he’ll send me someone”. That alone is bad enough. But I also spend a massive amount of time thinking about the guy I like, imagining being married, and all that other weird stuff that girls (or maybe just I) do. I also know that lust is not primarily a guy problem because of my constant struggle with it. Between all these reasons, every other minute I’m having thoughts that I know are wrong and I know I need to stop, but I do nothing about. And then that leads to the underlying issue of what the author discussed: subconsciously assuming that God owes me something (romantic love or otherwise), even if I would never admit that.
Again, even if you’re not a girl that struggles with focusing on boys, this could be applied to so many other things. We’re human, we have desires, and a lot of times that conflicts with our knowledge of this good, loving, all-powerful God, and we then twist that around and assume it means that he’s going to give us all those human desires. In reality, that’s not true, and what we desire is never really going to satisfy us on its own (even if that desire is something God-intended, such as marriage).
So yes, I just thought that was a very well-written article about something that is easy to push to the back our minds so that we don’t have to deal with the discomfort of facing up to it. Hopefully you got something from it as well; I’m happy to hear your thoughts, so please do share them. 🙂
Have a delightful day, remember you’re beautiful and loved! <3

Oh girl! This article perfectly describes what I believe but can’t say in such a well put manner. lol. I too am a little boy crazy at times. And that’s ok. It’s ok to want to get married. I wanna get married at some point to. But I see so many people become obbssesed with it! And I hate how people assume you can’t be happy without a boyfriend. Like, I have my own life and I’m happy with it. And it does not involve a man!
