A Time for Everything
Vs. 11- “He has made everything beautiful in it’s time”
Today I want to remind us, specifically Single Girls that there is a time for everything! EVERYTHING!
So if you’re single today, don’t be down and out because you’ve not received a bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates or some special attention from a Man, but instead celebrate this time of single-hood. I wish I had enjoyed it more before all the responsibilities came, but even now as a Single Mother I’m learning to make the most of this time; This year in particular is already so BEAUTIFUL! because all the time I used to spent either catching up on a series or entertaining people I use that time to be in the presence of God.
My evenings involve getting an update from my kids on how their day was, eat dinner together(not as often as we should), home-work check, bed-time story, prayer time and then I tuck them in. I then use that quiet time to do my bible reading and get lost in His presence as I listen to my worship music or watch a sermon online or get on a christian blog or cozy up to one of my christian books and just constantly feed myself with His word! Because Faith comes by Hearing and by hearing the word of God.
I wouldn’t trade my time with Him for ANYTHING! and of-course this wouldn’t be the case if I was sharing my life with someone else other than my children, so instead of looking at the clock as I approach 31years old soon… I am so content and happy in Jesus to the point where if marriage is not in the books for me that is just fine, because my heart is happy and so full with Jesus as my everything.
Use your single-hood to know yourself better, to seek God with all of you and to serve Him!
I think relationships should only happen once you are living out your purpose and you find each-other busy fulfilling it and support each other to reach your fullest potential.
Don’t get into a relationship just for the sake of it or because you’re lonely, but wait until you’re ready- “Do not awaken love before it’s time”- Song of Songs 8:4 instead remember that relationships should be built on purpose, so are your purposes aligned? should be a question to ponder on and a prayer point. You are meant to help each-other fulfill each other’s purposes, so stay busy seeking yours & boldly living it out and at the right time your partner will find you.
Remember you are to be FOUND! “He who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains Favour from the Lord”- Proverbs 18:22
You don’t have to do anything my dear girls, please don’t chase- you weren’t made to chase-leave that to the men and instead just allow for your heart to be so lost in God that he will first have to seek God to find you. For in God’s appointed time He will find you.
