The Gift of Single Life.

"No one warns young people to follow Adam's example. He waited till God saw his need. Then God made Adam sleep, and brought her to him. We need more of this 'being asleep' in the will of God. Then we can receive what He brings us in His own time, if at all." - Jim Elliot.

Ha! That's exactly what I was thinking about- not chasing after something (or someone) but letting God provide. Thanks for this!
