You Can’t Hurry Love   3 comments

On September 30, 2010 I posted an entry about song tracks.  You know, those songs that pop into your head, as a sort of sound track to your life.  Anyway, one of the ways God works in me is sometimes I wake up with a song.  And that song will be the answer to a prayer, or the theme for the day.  I don’t know how else to explain it.  As soon as I am awake the song starts, and it is clear and loud in my head.  I did not wake up to the radio this morning so I know it was not something I listened to while I was still asleep.

My song this morning was “You can’t hurry love” – remember Diana Ross singing that?

“You can’t hurry love
no, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
no matter how long it takes”

I hate waiting.  Have I said that before?  This, combined with the dream I had the other day, tells me that God is telling me it will happen, but I have to wait.  “It” being marriage.  I hate waiting.  Good golly — I’ve been waiting over 20 years to be married again.  And that last line?  “no matter how long it takes”?  UG!!!  Picture me, standing with fists clenched, head back, screaming up into the sky, “NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!”

Yeah, that’s how I feel about that.  But still…… I trust God.  I know from many past experiences that He has my best interests in mind and that His way truly is best.  I’ve gone this long.  I guess I can wait a bit more.

  1. I love this post for the honesty…there is no false bravado about not needing someone special.
    It is lovely that true feelings can be shared by a writer such as you.

    it will come to pass…your sincere nature is too attractive to not be seen
