i'm coming out {six} just another one of those girls

i don't think i could help but post this here. because everyone needs to see it. 
i think it's obvious that we all eventually want to end up like this. but, how exactly? with who? that's the hard part. there's a difference between infatuation and admiration. infatuation is something that is short-lived and passionate. whereas, admiration is a respect for someone. and yet commitment is higher than both of these. 

over the past few weeks, i think i've developed a crush on tim tebow. but, as it may happen, this is somewhat of a different crush. forget the fact that tim and i are both left-handed. forget the fact that tim and i are both homeschoolers {and proud}. we are both active believers. he praises the Lord no matter what. and for me, i just can't off and say that i have a crush on tim tebow. it's a little bit more complicated than that. 

he is a Godly man. he is focused. he doesn't run off and date some random girl and then break it off just because he was done with that one. no, he has purpose. and i have purpose as well. my mom was speaking of it in the car on the way home from church: whoever tim tebow is going to marry in the next few years, she is going to be one lucky, happy girl. what, mom? you speak of it as if it can't be me? and i'm ashamed of myself for thinking something like this. i don't even know why i'm telling you guys this. 

with tim tebow, you can't jut have a crush. because tim is different. he stands out. for obvious reasons. because his is purposeful don't you have to be purposeful, too? purposeful is not walking around half-naked hanging around every guy you see. purposeful is focused. it's attentive. purposeful, in my mom's way of saying it, is walking up to tim tebow in a bridal gown. because even though you may not be the girl he's going to marry, atleast you have the right intentions. 

i'll admit it. yes, tim tebow has the same qualities that i want in my future husband. one in love with God. two submitted to authority. parents, pastor, and other figures of such. and the others aren't necessarily important, because they have to do with the physical aspect of things. 

i remember when my grandma was looking for second homes here in texas. we found one not even a block away from us. it was ideal, in great shape, and just in her price range. but we didn't get it. sure, we were upset, but didn't that mean that there was something better out there? just because we don't get the guy we want, that doesn't mean we have to throw a fit and swear off guys. because doesn't that mean that God has something better for us?

i was going to post something different today. i can't even remember what. i've been having a shortage of inspiration, but when this came to mind i just couldn't pass it up. i don't want to be just another one of those girls that wears daisy dukes in winter and allows herself to be handled by who-knows what type of guy. i can't be just another one of those girls who has a crush on tim tebow just because he's good looking. i have to have purpose in this. because, after all, he does.


  1. this is gooodd. :) tim tebow's great!!!!

  2. interesting post. :) I really respect how you don't just like him because he's good looking. Too many girls having crushes on guys because of looks.

  3. I love this post. So much. It's beautiful. It shows the heart of a true Christian and for that I commend you.

    Love always ,
    Alana <3

  4. oh my goodness jocee i loved this post more than you know. i have been thinking about all this stuff for the past month and realizing that God is my first lover.. ad that i should be giving him all i've got. and he will bring me someone better for me than any other guy. i've gotta admit, looks are really tempting, but i have already decided that i am gonna wait for God's best. Thank you so much for this encouraging post. Little stuff like this keeps me focused on God-- even though i don't really know you! Thanks again. i loved it... a lot.

  5. i love this blog. i think it's a great theme for one. :) well, i know this is really pushing it, but, if you ever want a team of "rebels with a cause" i'd love to join you :D i won't be offended if you say no, just email me if you ever want to take me up on the offer :)


  6. I just found this blog and was overjoyed! Thank you so much for standing firmly for what you believe in. Blessings!

  7. this is so good, i really needed to read this, i too have developed an "interest" in a very godly man, who might be afamous christian artist. others would look at me and go "wowzers, she's a crazy fangirl", but its different, just in the way you described it. <3

  8. I love this post!! Great message!


  9. This was SUCH a wonderful post! There are times I really think this world has just gone- the way women dress, the way men look at women, and the whole general idea of date-breakup-date-breakup to marry-divorce-marry-divorce-cycle. It's so sadly unbiblical yet everyone- Christians too- get into all of this. The heartbreaking thing is that you and I (and all the other girls in agreement out there) can't really do anything about it. It's that sort of subject that's so deeply rooted and so okay to do in our culture that no one is going to listen to "the young girls."

    Right now, all I think we girls CAN do to make a difference is to wait for the right guy and be an example to all those surrounding us. I think people will begin to see that those who have live happily ever after, have to wait a little while and not go directly whisking off into fairyland.

    Thanks so much for posting about this!

  10. I love your blog. I hope you will stop by mine. . It is called Living Fully By Faith.


  11. I think waiting for the right guy is so important, and I have been waiting for someone to post about this. :)
