Quotes about waiting and dating…

From  her YouTube video Boys, Boys, Boys

If dating is something that can be done with intention, why spend your precious time doing it for no reason? Why not wait until it’s right and spend that time with someone who truly deserves yours? […] The time that we’ve been given is a gift: don’t waste it.

I believe I was created by the creator of love. I know that he knows my dreams, my hopes and my future. And I believe it’s my goal to live a life that is pleasing to him doing whatever it is he has in store while I am and I have waited for the love of my life. I believe that true love is the most beautiful thing in the world and I believe it’s worth waiting for and I really hope that you’ll give waiting a chance too.

 In an interview with Sisterhood Magazine

I’m definitely an old-fashioned girl. I want the door opened for me, and I believe in being pursued. In my song, ‘God’s Girl,’ I sing about everything happening in His timing. When He’s ready for me to take the step to begin dating, I’ll take it. Meanwhile, I’m going to concentrate on loving Jesus and sharing Him through music.

If I like a guy, I’m not one who is going to reach for his hand or give him a long hug. I’ve set boundaries and believe these are things that should be shared with someone I would be very serious with—not a casual dating relationship.

I don’t know if the first guy I date will end up being my husband, but I do know I’m not going to date anyone who isn’t husband material. If a guy isn’t working with me spiritually, doesn’t respect my parents and doesn’t respect his parents, then he’s not dating material because he’s not husband material.

Lyrics to her song God Girl

And when my ears start hearin’ what people say

Hurry up, find love, cause time’s tickin’ away

Well, I’m not bein’ lazy, I’m just waiting for

Still waiting for the right boy

Cause I only want to listen to your voice

So I’ll be listenin’

Always listenin’ to you everyday

    YYEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Super glad to see her featured here, love love love her!!! She’s my favorite artist, and her WTM is such a great bonus!! Thanks for putting this on here :)

  2. Zaire says:

    I love her music but I do think she’s musically a bit overrated. Not trying to be mean or anything, but she won that Dove Award because she has that insane team of marketing people and TobyMac behind her. Know tons of underrated christian artists that are better, BUT, its always great to see a younger person who has never dated speak up about it! Very inspiring!

  3. Queenie says:

    very inspiring and motivational . Though it is sometimes difficult to wtm I know it is the best we can do for ourselves as humanbeings especially redeemed with the precious blood of Jesus . God. Richly BLESS AND REWARD all those waiting till marriage:I am just being truthful. Every action comes with its consesequence..

    I’m glad she said a guy doesn’t love her if he doesn’t respect her parents, it was one reason why I ended my courtship, he didn’t really love me, after all am I not half of my mother and half of my father?
