Finding your husband may be something you’ve been praying about for years. Yes, finding, getting to know, and growing in love with a godly man will be exciting, but to have that relationship, you first need God to help you grow in your faith. Don’t ever view your single season in a negative light. Your single season is a time where you are able to build your relationship with God discover who and Whose you are so you can thrive. If you desire marriage, it’s also a time to develop a firm grounding in God. Your husband can’t do that for you.
I once heard a pastor say: “’You should be so close to God that a man has to go through God to get to you.” Singleness allows you to have undistracted devotion to God, so you can discover what’s important to you. When you’re secure in whose and who you are, you won’t settle for a relationship God didn’t design for you. Marriage means two whole people who complement each other. Whether single or married, God should be the most important person in your life. He gives your life meaning and brings contentment. Contentment comes from spending time with God and surrendering your will even when you don’t see His plan. Don’t waste your singleness envying friends who are in relationships. Instead, thrive by enjoying the privilege of exploring every day of your life with Someone who loves you more than any man ever could.
In your singleness God can use you to draw others to Him. You will thrive when you chose to align your heart with His will. God’s timing is perfect and the reason why you are single is part of His perfect plan for you.
