The One - The Single Girl Diaries



I was scanning through Instagram earlier today and one of those hearts popped up on my feed indicating someone had liked one of my posts. It wasn’t a name I recognized so I clicked on it. It was another blogger. So I did what any good girl does while on Instagram wasting the time she should be doing something else more meaningful- I stalked her and her feed. {:Hey she liked my post first.:}


As I scrolled through, this adorable couple photo with her sitting on the kitchen counter and her fiancé in front of her while they were nose to nose caught my attention. The image was so flipping adorable it was nauseating, but the caption was stunning.It was something along the lines of how she never thought she would ever get “the guy.” You know the one all the girls swoon over because not only is he one tall drink of Man Mocha but he’s also kind, generous, has ambition and definitely has a great future ahead of him. She goes on to say that though she never thought she was pretty enough, sweet enough, loving enough - essentially enough - she got “the guy”. And he’s the best thing that ever happened to her. 


I was inspired by that because it is always easy to feel that way when your friends are all buying investment properties and you are just praying to make it to 30 with a reservation for two instead of one.Then later I started to do my devotions and I asked God a question: “What is your name?” Instantly I heard back - 


“The One"

Oh yeah. Jesus, you are my one. You are the one my soul longs for. You are the one  my eyes desire to gaze into. I was so busy longing for“the one” that I forgot I have actually already found the one. I have found my souls greatest romance in my Jesus. And yes I long to one day be married, but I am not waiting for “the one” because I have already found him. He is the one who wakes up the sun to kiss my face each morning. He is the one who makes sure peanut butter is on sale at the grocery store so this college student on a tight budget can afford it. He is the one who whispers to my soul in the middle of my time with him to remind me that he is the one who will never leave me, never forsake me, and always fight for me.


I truly have found the one my soul loves. Because he is my “one” and my contentment and joy is found in him I know I am ready and good enough to one day get “the guy.”
