As a single woman who has been single for some time, it was difficult for me to believe that love could really happen for me. I would always find myself thinking that this time with this person it would be different. This is the one. He's doing all the right things, saying all the right words but as of today I'm still single. Why is this happening to me? Why do I always get so close to happily ever after but never actually walk through the door?
Many of you may be wondering the same thing or feeling the same way. Many of you may be in a place where you have given up on love due to a few bad hands that were dealt. Some of you may even have gone as far to believe that marriage is "Not God's will" for you. I mean be honest, do you really believe that you will find the one? Has time allowed you to give up or give in?
I was the one who believed in love for EVERYONE else but when it came to me, I doubted because if I can be honest, God hasn't moved in that area of my life yet! I haven't seen it but I haven't seen it because I was double minded.
But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do. James 1:6-8 NLT Scripture tells us that when we ask God for something, we must be sure. That means doubting is not on the agenda. I asked but I doubted. I doubted because my faith was on E in that area. Is your faith on E? Have you been doubting that love and marriage isn't really for you? Have you ever felt as if the promise, the very thing you want will not happen for you? Have you said one thing but thought the other?
I want to encourage someone on today. It's not over for you. Have you heard of the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Issac? God made Abraham a promise that he will be the father of many nations at the great age of 75! Now, I don't know about you, but at 75 having a baby seems impossible due to age. But how many of you know that NOTHING is impossible with God. Long story short, after 25 years of waiting baby Issac was born. One of the biggest takeaways I took from this story, never let time dictate the word God had given to you. If he said it, it will come to pass on his time. Time is on your side. It's not too late. God will move at the appointed time. Trust him and wait. Prepare yourself now. He who finds a wife..you must already be a wife in order to be found. Wives are submissive.
Are you submitting to the will of God? Are you submitting to those around you? Are you walking in purpose now? Let God make you into the woman you need to be so when he comes to you, you are ready not getting ready. Faith up Queen, it's going to happen for you!!
