While you are single, not in a relationship, not dating seriously, not married, you may be regarded as lonely and missing something, even the best out of life. However, despite your empty datebook, single relationship status, and subtle disdain by a society that views singleness as the plague, you are whole and not awaiting your better half, you are the better whole to your one day husband if God wills you to marry. Do not let society, age, or any other pressure rush you into marriage by encouraging you to write your own love story because that is an opportunity for the enemy to send you one of his children which would not be God’s best for you. During this upcoming holiday season, family, friends, people with good intentions, and others without good intentions will ask, “So, when are you getting married?”, and wait patiently for your hesitant answer. One of many appropriate and gracious ways to answer is by saying something to the tune of, “God has not sent my husband, but I trust God’s timing.” Understand that God will not withhold any good thing from you. He is a good God who knows how to give good gifts to His children, better than any earthly father ever could, that’s for sure. While He will not withhold any good thing from you, including the good thing that is a husband, that does not mean that He will not allow that thing you desire to be delayed, to await perhaps his or your necessary preparedness and the perfect timing for the presentation of your perfect for you gift, into your life. Though your meeting with your one day husband tarries, wait for him, because God will make your wait worth your while if you trust Him with all matters especially matters of your heart. While desiring the temporary pleasure of life that a husband and family brings, desire more fully, and crave more earnestly what is eternal, the love relationship between you, your Maker and your Savior that will last forever. Today, I encourage you to spend your single days, your free, undivided time being devoted to God. What can you do for Jesus that would not be as feasible if your status were different?
