In that search for Mr. Right, it’s important to remember one thing: expect respect. I know that we all say that we expect to be respected from guys, but how often do we find ourselves settling for second or even third best? In the end, we all want to be loved and accepted for who we are. It’s human nature. But let’s not forget that we are true princesses under God our King and Father. We already are loved and accepted through Jesus! Don’t settle for half best when God has someone just for you that will give you all of the respect, love, acceptance, and admiration you crave.
To help set your standards, make a list of the things you love in a man. In the separate column, make a list of the characteristics you will not tolerate. Set your standards high! Next time you find yourself at a relationship crossroads where you could settle for less than the best, pull out your list and remind yourself of your standards. God knows your heart’s desires even before you do! He’s got Mr. Right all lined up for you. Never settle and trust God to put Mr. Right in your path!
