Hey! I know this post is really old.. but.. I completely relate with this! πŸ™‚ It is seriously an every day struggle for me! I’m finally for the first time in my life content to wait on God’s timing for a guy in my life and am not even wanting a relationship till God wants me to! But still, especially with open doors and possibilities, it is so stinking hard to just keep focused on God and NOT think about adorable boys. First of all, pray about it.. a lot… Ask God to lead you to know HOW to pray for it. I always pray that God will help me to not have feelings for boys until I am ready, and that I will just be good friends with all my friends, and focus on falling completely in love with God FIRST.. and then when the time is right, the guy is right, and we are both fully prepared and ready for each other, then and only then will God awaken love in our hearts. Some verses that help me are

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” -Psalm 37:4

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13

I hope this helps! I’m so glad to know I am not the only one! How have you been doing with this lately!? It’s been over a year since you posted this.. so I’m quite curious. πŸ™‚
