You want to be married. You’re tired of people telling you to, “Wait on the Lord.” But there’s nothing else you can do. Or is there?

No one likes to wait. That’s why we microwave popcorn and get frustrated when a red light takes too long to change. Waiting for the right man to come along can be even more frustrating! It’s even worse when he’s nowhere in sight and you have no idea when he might show up. It’s like being stuck in a traffic jam twenty cars back, nothing moving, on the hottest day of the year, and your fuel gauge hovering dangerously close to ‘E.’ You wait and wait, with no idea what’s going on up ahead or when things will finally start moving. In the meantime, well-meaning people keep telling you, “He that finds a wife finds a good thing…” thinking they are helping you. But it only makes you feel worse. You used to wonder when he’s coming. Now you’re beginning to wonder if he’s coming. And the worst part is you have no idea why you’re still waiting.


Getting an answer to the “WHY?” question keeps you from imagining the worst. It settles your mind. It eases your frustration. And it makes what seems like the worst situation bearable. The answer to that question brings UNDERSTANDING.


In over twenty years of talking with people about relationships, I’ve lost count of the number of times this has been said to me. “If only I had known!” Each person is different, but the feeling is always the same. Regret. This simple but incredibly powerful five-word statement sums up years of pain, frustration, wrong choices, and bad relationships that could have been avoided. If only they had someone tell them what you’re about to discover.


You will never have to say, “If only I had known.” You will know! I’m not simply going to tell you to “wait on the Lord.” There are enough people around who can tell you that. I’m giving you the answer to the most powerful question in the universe. I’m going to tell you WHY. You will finally know why the Lord is giving you the opportunity to wait.


Knowing and understanding why opens your eyes to new relationship possibilities, gives you a fresh perspective about your wait, and equips you to:

  • Recognize the wrong relationship BEFORE you get into it.
  • Know what you need to do NOW to prepare for your FUTURE relationship.
  • Identify your own unique MUST HAVES for a good relationship.

Why would this change almost everything? I say “almost” because I can’t tell you when your desire for relationship and ultimately marriage will be fulfilled. But I can assure you of one thing. As you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing why you have been waiting, you may discover that what you’ve been waiting for is closer than you think.

Regret is expensive. But it’s a price you don’t have to pay. Though the Vision Tarry: Waiting for My Promised Mate gives you and your future relationship the priceless advantage of understanding. Get your copy today!
