even the most handsome prince charming.

I think nearly very little girl dreams of prince charming. 
He is tall, dark, and handsome. He rides up on a white horse. He rescues you from danger. He is faithful to you alone. He is always kind and gentlemanly. He is so amazing (not to mention handsome), he takes your breath away. He is perfect. And he fulfills all your dreams. 

Say it with me, ladies - "Awwwww." 

Perhaps you are still waiting for your "prince charming" and saving your heart for him.
Maybe you're dating or engaged to your prince and he is just wonderful.
Or possibly, you're happily married to the man of your dreams. 

Ladies, regardless of where you are in your girlish heart's quest for "the prince", I want to remind us all of something I've been thinking about - while real life love stories are beautiful, God-written romances are ever so worth waiting for, and while marriage is a precious blessing - 

no man can ever fill the place in your hearts 
that longs for that perfect prince to come and rescue you.

I love these words...

"Even a beautiful God-scripted love story can never satisfy the way Jesus does. Even the most heroic and Christlike man on earth can never fulfill the longings of our heart like the true Prince and lover of our soul (Jesus Christ). And until we are able to truly make Him our first love, until we are willing to give up our dream of an earthly love story for His sake, we will never know the fullness of Him who fills us all in all. We will always be looking to a mere man to meet the desires of our heart, rather than to the One who created us, who knows us better than we know ourselves, and who gave His very life's blood to rescue us."
-Leslie Ludy


May you and I remember this.
Your husband may be wonderful and dreamy.
Your boyfriend may make you swoon.
The future husband you hope for and pray for will truly be a man among men! 

But.... no human can ever take the place of Jesus in our hearts.
We cannot be the perfect wife or girlfriend or woman. 
And no man can be the perfect husband or boyfriend.
Only God can fill that void in our hearts.
And when that void is filled with His unconditional love?
Why, there's lots of room for giving and receiving
 romantic love from the one He has chosen for us.

And how beautiful is that?

Embrace your Prince Charming, Jesus, today.
He loves you like no one else can!!

Love your sister on this journey of chasing Him,
