Prince Charmings really do exist in this world.
They are men who reflect our Prince Charming in heaven – Jesus Christ.
As set-apart young women, our standards for earthly lovers must be calibrated to fit with the nature and character of our heavenly Lover.
We must allow Him to train our eyes to see the beauty and strength of the internal life. We must learn to recognize and applaud integrity, selfless love, courage, compassion, and an intimate relationship with Christ. And when we do, we will be satisfied with nothing less than men who reflect the princely grace of our Jesus.
We will recognize these men of God’s choosing because they will have been shaped by our Prince.
They will be set apart for the Prince’s service, just as we are.
Praise the LORD, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.” —Psalm 47.6-7
let us press on to acknowledge Him.
As surely as the sun rises, He will appear;
He will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth.” —Hosea 6.3
When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.
Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
Restore our fortunes, LORD, like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
