YES to you

I just started reading Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and this poem by Ann Kiemel Anderson is included in the foreword.

Timely, and more than a little hard to dwell on right now.

Jesus, if this is your will,
then YES to being single.
In my deepest heart I want to marry,
to belong to a great man;
to know that I am linked to his life…
and he to mine…
following Christ and our dreams together…
but You know what I need.
if I never marry, it is YES to you.
