An Open Letter to the Girl Who’s Chasing After Guys

Dear Daughter of the King,

I know it’s hard. Going from guy to guy, hoping that they can give you the one thing you want most: love and acceptance. The world around you makes casual dating and hook-ups look like some kind of perfect fantasy, but that’s all it is: a fantasy.

I don’t know your current situation, but God does. And He has something way better in store for you.

You are loved and you are worthy in His eyes. That’s why He doesn’t want to see your heart get broken time and time again. He cares about you too much to say, “Go do what you want. It’s your life, find happiness.”

Just look around, at a glance, people may seem happy and fulfilled, but take a deeper look.

Underneath those casual hook-ups, there’s a girl, like you, searching for someone to love her.

When God says not to “awaken love until it’s appointed time” (Song of Solomon 2:7), it’s not to keep you from having fun and enjoying life. It’s to protect you and remind you that He has a better love story planned.

Your heart is too precious to just be tossed around. Jesus loves you and wants to protect you from potential heart breaks. However, He never forces Himself on anybody. It has to be your choice.

I promise you that Christ will cherish your heart. He has a plan for you. Not a plan to harm you, but a plan to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)!

You are a daughter of the King of kings. You have tremendous worth and that’s something that no one can take away. Because you’re a daughter of the King, that makes you a princess who is beautiful and valued!

No guy can give you everything your heart longs for. Let your identity be found in the One who knows you better than anyone else.

There will be times when you feel pressured to give in to your emotions, but stay strong! God has plan and His story is better than the Hollywood fantasies.

If you need encouragement or prayer, don’t hesitate to send me an email.

With love,

Kayla Marie
