Day 12: His fields are blooming with opportunities for you to affect His Kingdom in unique and powerful ways
Today may seem unsure. It may seem like the past is simply too close to even call it the past, but stay the course. Thoughts and ideas of lost opportunities, dreams, or could-have-been’s from relationships may be clouding your mind’s eye, but wipe away the scales, and grab the new clear vision the Lord offers!
As we move on to the next thing, we often take the past (and all its ills) with us.
Now of course God is a complete God, and yes, He will use that experience to move us forward, but don’t for a moment keep it as an altar of remembrance in your life. God’s got bigger things planned for you, and that old stuff will only weigh you down. Could you imagine collecting ALL the leftover bags that you see at the luggage carousel?! Just like the old things in our pasts, they’re someone’s, but they are not yours anymore…so leave them there!
Step out into the NEW promises and adventures God has for you. Maybe you’ve gained wisdom and insight from failed relationships. Take that, and know in your singleness you can share it with women all over the world! The things the enemy meant to hinder you with when things went south, the Lord has already spun a new story…just turn the page! Take this season of singleness, my dear sister, and realize His fields are blooming with opportunities for you to affect His Kingdom in unique and powerful ways.
Maybe you’ll take to the airwaves, and speak life to those feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you’ll use your love of people to minister to the hurting orphans and widows across the globe. Could it be the words you’ll write from the Author of all Creation will minister to thousands? Maybe. Quite possibly the greatest investment you’ll make as a single woman in this season of life, will be to sit at a nearby café with a confused young person or weary woman and share from those deep reserves of pain turned to passion.
Your sister in Christ,
