20 Empowering Scriptures to Encourage Black Women Awaiting their Boaz

Many people desire marriage… but what if it seems like marriage doesn’t desire many people? Faith is what will sustain you while you wait. Read on and be inspired.

Waiting to find “the one” can be hard for any woman, especially a woman of great faith who desires marriage.

It has to be hard to look around and see women around you who are either getting married or having babies.

Trust me when I tell you the grass is always greener on the other side.

But that doesn’t make “the wait” easier. I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about well-meaning family members asking when you’re going to get married and the relentless cycle of unsuccessful prospects exacerbates your pain.

Therefore, I thought that it would be helpful to just remind you of the healing power of prayer for those who believe in Jesus.

God keeps his promises.

This too shall pass sis. Stay inspired.
