“The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.”

“And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in Thee.”—Psalm 39:7
Have you ever heard a single girl say something to this effect: “I’m waiting for the Lord to bring me a husband.” Probably most of us have. In fact, we may have even thought something like that ourselves! And frankly, for many of us, there’s truth to the statement. We are waiting for the Lord to bring the right man to be our husband. God’s best is certainly worth waiting for! However, I’d like to share some thoughts that the Lord has been impressing on my heart lately. I think that by telling ourselves (and others) that we’re “waiting,” we could potentially slip into a mindset that keeps us from using our “single” years fully for the glory of God.

Kneeling down before my King,
My precious daughters to Him I bring.
How can I raise them to be virtuous and true?
Oh Lord, I'm weak; I need You.
I can strive to teach them to be morally good,
To say the right things, dress the right way,
act in a way every lady should.
But if I fail to teach them mercy, grace, and love,
To live my own life only for God above
Oh Lord, they need to be planted by the streams of living water,
That is what will make them a truly virtuous daughter.
So back on my knees before You I pray,
Lord, You need to work in their heart, You are the only way.

The Bible says, “young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands that that word of God be not blasphemed.”—Titus 2:4–5
How can we apply to these verses? We can apply to part of these verses by babysitting. Babysitting does not only mean that you babysit children when the parents are gone. You can babysit children when the parents are there too. I know probably some of you girls aren’t allowed to babysit when your parents are away from home, and I'm not allowed to either...

“Daughter of mine, a woman so kind,
how did you grow up to be so fine?”
A voice in answer so quiet and low,
“you trained me up in the way I should go.”
“Daughter of mine, so busy was I,
how did I teach you, when found I time?”
“Diligently you taught me all through the day,
as a young child in a Mother's special way.”
“Daughter of mine, If this be true,
what are some things that I taught you?”
“I learned to esteem others better than me.
not to love only in words; but also in deed.
Philippians 2:3, 1 John 3:18
I learned by example to love sisters and brothers,
as I saw you look on the things of others.
To always walk in truth you taught,
God's commands taught from the heart.”
Philippians 2:4, 3 John 1:4
“Mother of mine, You are so kind,
You are the one who is so fine.
I'd hear you pray, and learn how true,
the realness of God is in you.”
“Many a time I’ve failed and stumbled,
Daughter of mine in tears I’m humbled.”
"But as he which hath called you is holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;"
1 Peter 1:15

For the past year or so, God has been laying on my heart the importance of faithfulness to Him. I’d like to share with you some gleanings from the life of an ordinary man who held an ordinary job—yet he served an extraordinary God.

The popular culture of today projects a skewed image of beauty. What we are bombarded with by the mass media in no way resembles God’s definition of beauty; it is an intense focus on outward appearances, an exploitation of physical beauty, and a complete ignorance of the true, Christlike beauty that emanates from the inside out. The consequences of this worldly outlook run the gamut from immodesty to eating disorders to disillusionment—and much, much more. If we know that the image of beauty projected to us by the world is fatally twisted and self-destructive, then what is true beauty?

Dear Virtuous Daughters,
One thing God has been teaching me lately is to apply Galatians 6:2 to my life. “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” It is easy to go on with life and only think about ourselves, but I have been trying to think about others instead. Sometimes I don’t want to “bear one another’s burdens,” but then I remember Galatians 6:2 and do it. After all, you can’t argue the Bible!
