Dear EE,
I think most girls can fall in love with the idea of being in love. It’s just the way God made us. Of course, he wants us to wait and fall in love with the right guy at the right time—and that’s the least painful way to go. But sometimes we can’t seem to help ourselves, we fall head over heels, and that’s when we usually get to learn our lessons the hard way. But, hey, it’s better to love and get hurt and learn than to never learn at all. At least you’re smarter. The most important thing to remember is that God has a fantastic plan for your life, but if you’re always running ahead and trying to put it together for yourself, you’ll never experience God’s best for your life. So why not just trust him and be willing to wait for all the good that’s in store for you?
