It does, however, require energy and time, and you’ll need to make sure that your life isn’t so busy that there’s no space for this.
It’s really a case of taking what appropriate steps you can to meet them, and — this is the real part — waiting on God. And so, while you wait, I encourage you to set aside this idea of being “married to your work.” For both single and married people, I don’t think this is the best way to see our work.
And for as long as you are single, it’s vital that you make sure that you reserve time, space, and energy to nurture your friendships and your relationship with God.
I don’t know what it means to be “romantically realistic.” The two words together are an interesting juxtaposition.
But yes, I do think marriage, family, and a career for a woman are possible, though perhaps not all at the same intensity all the time.
Be bound to Christ and let him put everything else in its proper place. On the more practical side, would you be open to online dating or using an agency?
