Single Ladies: Stay In Your Lane

Standard
Ok, this is going to be short, but exciting…
 
Is it just me, or does it feel like when you’re single EVERYONE is in a relationship, getting engaged or getting married?
 
To be honest, my flesh makes sure to become full of discontentment because I’m single.
 
BUT…
 
We are all created with an individual purpose. God has already decided what we are to do while on earth. It’s up to us to listen to His instructions and fulfill that plan. Who am I to say what season someone else is in? 
I am not God.
I have no idea what He is instructing them to do.
I do not know if they’re being obedient to His instruction or not.
I can’t be jealous or upset.
 
By getting upset, I’m not showing that I’m upset with people for being in love. I’m showing that I’m upset with God because He hasn’t given me a companion.
How can we be upset with God when He has done SO MUCH for us?…
After all, if you’re reading this, He woke you up, you’re breathing, your eyes can see, and you know how to read! There’s no reason to be upset! We are so blessed!
 
Our youth minister said “There are a lot of us that would be further in life than we are, had we not entertained a certain someone we had no business entertaining…”
 
Ain’t that the truth!!
I can definitely attest to that!
 
Our disobedience is what has caused these long, uncomfortable seasons… That’s not God’s fault!
 
Then, we watched this spoken word.
 
 
Let’s just say… I will wait!
 
In the meantime:
I am focused on becoming the Ruth for my Boaz, the Rachel for my Jacob, the Eve for my Adam, the Proverbs 31 woman.
 
Ladies, we CANNOT expect to attract a wonderful Godly man, if we are not a wonderful Godly woman! Just as we aren’t able to change a man (like I’m sure we have all tried to at one point in life and failed miserably) a man cannot change a woman either. We have to be open and willing to submit ourselves to God, FIRST and allow Him to change us. If we cannot submit to God, we will not submit to our husbands – which goes against God’s instructions for families (Ephesians 5:21-24).
Do you see what will happen?
By settling for any man, instead of waiting for YOUR man, you are making a vow before God to submit to him. If he’s not worth submitting to, then you have a real problem on your hands… By not submitting to your husband and allowing Him to lead you, you’re back in that unnecessary season that could have been avoided with obedience. 
 
Don’t focus on what you don’t have, focus on what you strive to become – Believe me! Like the popular saying, “Stay in your lane” – if you’re busy working on your relationship with Christ and improving yourself, you won’t even notice what’s going on around you. 
 
Be encouraged.
