single ladies

Hi Ladies.
Singleness is a season, like all others. Nothing to be ashamed of or to be frowned upon. Every season in our lives is a gift from God. If you're single, praise God for this season, celebrate it and embrace it. Even the loneliness can be beautiful thing if we seek the Lord in it. The way I see it is, if I am single today it's because God has called me to be single for this moment of my life- so I will be the best single I can possibly be for the glory of God. Beloved sister (and brother) don't be consumed nor defined by this one area of your life when there is so much more that God wants to do both in you and through you. Be still in God's word and active in His service. May you enjoy your singleness and this video. Be encouraged!

To all my single ladies, this one is for you.

A woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. I am saying this for your benefit, not to place restrictions on you. I want you to do whatever will help you serve the Lord best, with as few distractions as possible. 1 Corinthians 7:34-35
Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to awaken love until the time is right. Song of Solomon 3:5
Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. Psalm 16:5
You are my private garden, my treasure, my bride, a secluded spring, a hidden fountain. Song of Solomon 4:12
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Great comments! It's a good reminder. For the most part, it can be the greatest time but at the same time, sometimes it can be the hardest. Even for the Christian, we can't say there are days where you wake up, look in the mirror, and say " why am I at this point in my life?" I guess the look in the mirror will remind us it's not about us and we can go on because it's about Christ and His plan. We need to follow and see where we go from here. We may never see the answer we are looking for, but God knows the answer and the plan so we need to let Him work in us and thru us and not worry if we see what we want. But I will say that its easy to say and hard to do. God bless all who are single today. The world does everything to prove it's your fault but God's plan is better than what the world says, listen to God. Be Blessed today!

Raquel, my friend, you are the best!

This so encourages me right now, six weeks after I finally faced the fact that the man I had been seeing for 1 yr and 7 months was NOT the type of man that a daughter of God should be with. I was disobeying God by being "unequally yoked," but it still stung - bad - when I had to leave him.

Thank you SO kindly for sharing this post today... it REALLY hit home for me!

All God's love,
