Finding the right person is an arduous task.
Most times, even when we try, we don’t make the best decisions for ourselves.
That’s why we must pray and always seek God’s intervention.
There are lots of bible verses for patience when finding love.
These scriptures are needed for inspiration when you are waiting for love.
The truth is, you must be patient, pray ceaselessly, and be expectant.
Patience is key when searching for true love.
There is no need to hurry because God’s timing is always perfect.
It may take a while, but the delay is not denial.
Being impatient could lead you to fornication (which is a terrible sin before God).
Therefore, you must be patient because God’s only wish is to bless you with a perfect match.
I have compiled bible verses about waiting on love to inspire you.
Read and be blessed.

Final Words of Encouragement
1. God’s time is the best
Life is a mystery
If you rush into anything without God’s approval, you may never find happiness
God is the provider of all good and perfect things
So, when we need anything, we must be humble enough to seek his help
But it may not come quickly
God may sometime let us go through a transition period to find happiness
And we must be patient with him all through the way
Think about it for a second
Can you search the heart of a man?
That’s why we must let him make the choices for us
Of course, not just by sitting down but through prayer
He has promised to fulfill our desires if we ask
So, pray without season and remind God of your needs each time
2. Don’t get moved by fornication
I will tell you the truth
fornication is a terrible sin for God
It takes away pride from the body and brings shame to our lives
God also dislike it when we allow our holy bodies to be a temple for sin
So, while waiting for love and the right person, be firm on your righteous character
Some men or women why tempt you to fall
They would want to make se*ual advances that will lead you to sin
This you must resist through prayers
Always be firm to share the word with your partner
There is no need to hurry
In marriage, God allows it
3. It will finally come with great joy
Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel
God rewards faithfulness and blesses us when we with patiently for him
