What are you doing in your waiting season?
Most singles occupy their mind with the idea of marriage, and fail to maximize their singlehood. People move from pole to pole praying for a life partner without first being COMPLETE as a single.
The word "single" means unique, whole, separate and complete (Genesis 1:26-31).
It's important for us to realize that when God created man, He made them as SINGLES. He made them male and female. He never created them married as husband & wife.
If He created you as a single first, then, there's a purpose to that. Until you fulfil your purpose as a single, it's advisable not to get married.
If singleness does not have a purpose, I believe God would have created us married pairs. Please, don't be desperate about getting married. And, while you are not desperate, don't be IDLE.
Please, get something RIGHT doing. Build a relationship with God. Discover You and LIVE it! It's good to settle down, but if you are not settled on the inside of you, you cannot SETTLE DOWN. Therefore, you need to first get settled on the inside with God and His Spirit; in order to settle down in marriage successfully.
As a single, you struggle with your study & prayer life and time management. Rather than, work on that… all you're thinking of is marriage. Please, o wrong o. Let's be honest with ourselves.
Due to high anticipation of marriage, most people keep looking into the future and neglect the present. And, it is the actions of the present that translate into the evidences of the future. Enjoy where you are on your way to where you are going.
When I see young couples who aren't happy and fulfilled in marriage, it breaks my heart. Some of you don't know how lucky you are being single now. Utilize this season of your life.
I've never been so happy about being single until recently. I've been able to explore myself more. I've been able to self-evaluate. It has open my eyes to my abilities, flaws and weaknesses. And, my ME time has been superb. I get myself involved with things that I don't even remember I'm not married. I don't feel depressed or down that most of my childhood friends are married. What made this possible? Willingness to maximize my single season.
Kingdom Sisters, move closer. Let me share a secret with you.😊 Make yourself a person of VALUE, and I assure you that you won't have to start looking around for a brother. They will be the ones coming to the extent that you will need to be CAREFUL and more DISCERNING not to "mischoose", because, they are great men who anyone would wish to marry.
Your single season is the time to know yourself and start working on those revelations. If you don't know who you are, what will you give someone else you intend to spend the rest of your life with? The best thing a confused person can give is confusion.
Sisters, ensure you know a man's focus in life before you concentrate on that relationship and move to marriage. Because, you will have to submit to him in marriage. Imagine you submitting to a confused man in marriage. God forbids!
Your single season is IMPORTANT and will rub off on what becomes of your marriage. A question all Intending partners must answer before saying "Yes, I do" is; "Why do I want to get married?"
May God minister to us beyond the words you have read.
I desire to see you live purposefully and be fulfilled in marriage.
To your relationship success.
