They do exist

Hello Beautiful
There is an old song by Christian hip-hop & RnB group G.R.I.T.S. called “I be.”  At the end of this track is a rhythmic spoken word that has been echoing in my heart for weeks.  Performed by a girl speaking to other ladies, it encouragingly depicts the truth of seeking (and finding) the right person in a relationship. 


My favorite line says:
“Godly, Ambitious, educated brothers do exist
You just cant see ‘cause your visions twisted”
There is so much packed into those two lines.  It is a reminder in our feeble moments of loneliness not to settle for Mr./Miss Good E. Nough.  So many times we feel as though every great person we meet is already in a relationship.  Logically we can deduce it is not possible that all the great men and all the great women are taken.  Clearly we must have a flawed vision. We cannot see the person of our dreams because of our own brokenness. 
Our self-esteem, Godly servant-hood, and life aspirations all affects our ability to find a mate with similar qualities of greatness.  In order to find a “Godly, ambitious, educated” mate, you must become Godly, ambitious, and educated.  These lines encourage me to continually refine myself for my future wife.  Become the person that someone falls in love with because of your intellect, dreams, and Love for your Creator.  The physical manifestation of your beauty is directly correlated to there being something inwardly beautiful to manifest.
And untwist your vision.  Stop looking for a mate in the wrong places.  Open your eyes to the qualities that really matter in a person.  See past the superficial and find the heart of a person.  One line in the song says, “Kings don’t rock crowns in crowds. For what? They’re more secure than that.”  You won’t see a great man flashing his prestige in public; you will have to seek after their character to find their amazing worth. 
Be patient and know your own worth.   Settling will not meet the void you feel in your heart.  It is setting yourself up for failure and heartache.  Understand your greatness and hold yourself, and your significant other, to a higher standard.  You deserve someone that knows you are beautiful.
