The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ~ Genesis 2:18
Sometimes being single seems like such a title. It reminds you of what you don’t have while everyone else seems to be in a relationship. But we don’t have to see it that way!
Don’t get me wrong dating can be an experience but being single can be just as awesome! Is that hard to believe? After coming out of a relationship, I’ve realized that while God might have closed that door, He has something new in store for me. I am really excited to find out what God is planning for me! If I thought I had found an amazing person before, I can’t imagine what kind of man God has picked out for me. So while relationships don’t always work out the way we hope, we can’t let it get us down because God knows what’s best! He has something better in store for us!
Furthermore, being single allows us to work on our relationship with God. We need to have a solid personal relationship with God first! How can we have a good relationship with someone if God isn’t the centre of it all? Have you heard the saying that goes something along the lines of “a woman is so lost in God that a man needs to seek God to find her?” Ladies, be that woman! Have a strong relationship with God! Don’t let any man come between you and God! Any man that does isn’t worth it! A man should want to be second in your life. He should never want to replace God, because God is always first! So seek a man who knows his way around a Bible. Find a man who can tell you what his favourite passage is. Someone who wants to do devotions with you and pray with you. Find the guy who wants to talk about God and share his spiritual life with you!
Gentleman, seek the lady that is so lost in God! Wait patiently for a woman of such faith for she is worth finding! Find the woman who loves God so much that you can see Jesus through her! Seek a woman of God that is giving, insightful and passionate about her Father in heaven and about life!
All in all, don’t get discouraged. Being single is not a title! It’s the freedom to strengthen your relationship with God and to go wherever he leads you. Everything else will fall into place when God wants it to. And never settle for anything less than the best that God has to offer you! For the wait is worth it!
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. ~ 2 Timothy 2:22
