I already knew this season for me was going to be rather rough. This holiday time is where commercial ads and stores really promote “relational love” and “meet me under the mistletoe” themes. I know that through this time I have to endure couples every where buying each others presents, getting engaged, and holding hands. I knew I would be feeling that stinging pain in my chest and yearning for that as well. It’s been a constant battle of reminding myself that I am a single woman right now for a reason and this season that I am alone is my time to be only with God. It’s important not just for me, but for any of you who just lost someone you care about that this is the time to be intimate with God.” I read a quote a few weeks ago that stated this: “Love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.” It’s crucial to understand that even though I would love to be drinking a warm cup of coffee right now with someone special, I have to understand that God’s love is so much more. He is going to bring to me my Boaz one day, just in His perfect timing. I know that if I give into my own selfish desires, I am going to see right past the best opportunity God has already planned for me. I know that if I only dwell on the fact that I’m going to be alone relational wise this season, I’m going to miss growing in Jesus and becoming like Him. There is no point in worrying about things I cannot change. Being a single woman that I am should be a good thing. I am free to be fully surrendered and vulnerable to Jesus. This is the time I have for Him to completley change me and help me to love like He does. I am now fully attentive to be a vital part to build His kingdom. He brings us out of places we once desired to enter into His place. Here are some scripture to uplift you if you feel this way as well. Just know that God knows this season for many people, and now me, is so difficult. Remember that you are not alone and there is such a glorious Someone who loves every piece of you. ❤️
