29 Bible verses about Waiting for Love (for the right person)

Last updated on June 28th, 2020 at 03:08 am

We all need to be with the right person.

The person that understands us and our flaws.

We need someone that has all the qualities we desire.

Someone willing to love us the way we are.

Most importantly, we need a partner (husband or wife) that will be faithful.

Not someone that breaks your heart with every chance that he/she gets.

That’s why we must be patient for the right person.

We mustn’t rush into the next available relationship.

We must be patient and trust in God for a perfect partner.

Thankfully, there are bible verses about waiting for love.

These scriptures can inspire you to hold on and be patient.

I have been in a similar situation in the past where I was left heartbroken from a very toxic relationship.

I wasn’t so sure of the next step to take.

In my emotional troubles, I became anxious and impatient.

I just wanted to move on to the next available relationship.

And in my quest to do that, I found myself making numerous mistakes.

I fell into the devil’s trap and repeatedly sinned without remorse.

I found myself in many incompatible relationships.

But thank God, he rescued me from my impatience.

Today, I am happily married.

If you are finding it difficult to be patient, we must learn from the scriptures (more on that later).

I have put together bible verses about waiting for love.
