It’s okay to have days you are not particularly excited about being single or you struggle with being content in it as you could do with some companionship.
There are days like that, life has its ups and downs and the single life is no exception.
Just please, always remember that in those moments of weakness, God’s grace is available and sufficient, always.
To be joyful in singleness doesn’t necessarily mean you (have to) like being single, it simply means you choose to trust God anyway.
That’s what changes everything, especially your perspective.
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8
Trusting God, relying and depending on Him, is where the joy comes from, because you know, your God is a Father who’s tender and compassionate towards you, who has only good plans for you, thinks only goods thoughts of you, has your best interest at heart, greater than you could ever dream and only wants to fill your life with good things.
You may not like this season He has you in, you may not understand how you are 30 going on 31 and you are not even dating anyone, when you thought you’d have 3 kids by now, you may not understand why all your friends are married and have had their 3 kids and you are still livin’ la Vida sola, you may not understand how every one else’s husband has been able to find them but it seems yours is having some difficulties finding his way.
You may not understand it all, perhaps that’s why God says, to trust in Him with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, stop trying to figure it out, just trust Him.
You can trust Him because He is so, so faithful.
You know that, morning came today because a long long time ago, God said that’s how it should be, right?
A long time ago. In the beginning, according to the bible. How long ago was that?
Yet, it has stayed that way, because He said so. Wow!
He is the same One whose word says that, “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning”.
So, let every morning be a reminder of God’s faithfulness, a reminder that He keeps His word, He watches over it to perform it, a reminder that if this morning came, then the morning, when your joy will come, will also come, because God has said it.
All I’m trying to say is that, you can trust God.
He. Is. Faithful.
His plans and purpose for you, none can thwart and girl, those plans are good.
Yep, the bible says so, see below;
“I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted.” – Job 42:2
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Let this be your joy, in times when you don’t like being single, trust that it’s working altogether for good, your good.
It’s okay to have a Father-please-remove-this-cup-from-me moment, but I pray you always get to the nevertheless-not-my-will-but-Yours point and keep going.
You’ll be fine girl, we will be fine.
