on my Way.
What on earth is going on with me lately? I feel like every post I write lately is about either the single life or dating and relationships. Maybe it is because it is February and the Valentine’s Day madness has turned my mind to a goopy, girly mush, or maybe God is up to something. Who knows. Either way, I’ll keep writing about whatever He puts on my heart.
Today you get to hear the song that I simply can’t get out of my head. I mentioned it a few weeks ago in my Friday “Quick Takes“. When I posted it I thought it was a nice song with some amazing voices. Then I listened, and I mean really listened, to the lyrics. Watch the video below and get sucked in.
The whole idea of being “on my way” is ridiculously appealing. It is a journey towards love, isn’t it? It isn’t as though I simply sit in one place, not moving, not growing, not living life while I wait for my knight in shining armor to show up.
The way the whole band just sings the song is enough to melt a heart; many, many hearts, in fact. He wasn’t there when we took our first breath. He wasn’t there when we learned to walk, but this whole time he has been and is on his way. A tear formed in his eye at our first kiss? And oh how we wish we could only have kissed him, our one true love! Just close your eyes and see…he is on his way. But more importantly, God is at work!
“So leave a space deep inside for everything I’ll miss…” is one of those lyrics that just tugs at my heart strings every time I hear it. Isn’t that what guarding our hearts is all about? We leave space deep inside for the one that God has made for us. Sure, there are things our future spouse will miss, but the telling and re-telling of stories is what bonds us together.
“Come alive in all you’ve found, all you’re meant to be…” don’t just sit around waiting for Mr. Wonderful to plop into your life. Come alive in all you’ve found, come alive where you are, come alive in all that God is calling to you. As St. Iranaeus said, “The glory of God is man, fully alive.”
Don’t believe it is all in vain, your future spouse is on their way. Just remember, he’ll be there the moment you come out in white. He is on his way. There is hope.

I’m glad you don’t think I’m beating a dead horse on the blog, sometimes I really feel like I am!
Boyce Avenue is fantastic!
I love Boyce Avenue!
And I also love your posts about being single…it’s a great comfort for me to read about other young women who are dealing with the same things as me. In my not-so-humble opinion, I think sometimes it takes talking (or typing in this case) a topic almost to death in order to fully understand your own emotions…and just know that every time you do, there are girls like me who benefit from your thoughts.
So thank you 🙂
Share away, it is such a beautiful song!
Love is definitely a beautiful journey, and really love is only a journey to Him, who is love! Thanks for sharing, I’ll have to check out your blog post!
I love Boyce Avenue, they are a really amazing band with great music!
You never know when God is going to do the “plopping”! I think my advice was more or less not to sit around waiting but to constantly pursue His heart, and then when the time is right God will plop that man (or woman) into our lives! Thanks for sharing your story, and thank you so much for the prayers!
Ah! I absolutely LOVE that song. Wow. I think I’m going to share it with some girlfriends.
Windowinthesky…what a beautiful story! Thanks for sharing! Love is such a journey, isn’t it? I just wrote about my journey from one Valentine’s Day to the next on my blog (http://www.only-annegirl.blogspot.com/2013/02/my-valentines-day-story.html) yet I know the journey of learning and growing will continue no matter where this relationship goes because as long as we’re following Jesus…He is Love itself. 🙂
That is a beautiful song, I have never heard of this ground before, so guess what that means, looking up more of their music. 🙂
Before I was married to my husband, actually right before I met him for the first time. I recently dealt with a very hurting blow, my engagement with another man fell apart drastically fast and hurting.
I had just become Catholic and during that time I was living my godmother who was discerning the religious life. I had met the Sisters she would be joining and I was filled with so much love and peace when I was in Adoration. I thought and prayed that I was to discern the vocation of religious life as well. That God clearly wanted me to come to him completely in that way.
And so, on the day I was to ask my godmother how long would a convent accept a newly baptized Catholic young woman God decided to plant my husband at my front door. (He was a friend of my godmother’s.)
I think where I was getting at was when you mention we cannot want for Mr. Wonderful to plop into our laps. I had come alive and took firm action. In turn God did more of the plopping as I moved closer to find my way deeper to Him.
I am hoping this little-long comment made some sense.
Many prayers your way as you go through life and as the upcoming release of your book comes closer.
