"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5,6
I am a single Christian woman that now desires more than anything to live for Him. Early on in my Christian walk I decided that I could no longer continue to live as a single woman, living outside of God's will, and paying the consequences. I prayed for a man and then when the Lord blessed me with a man, I put God second and began to put the man first. In the end I realized the man was not for me.
Once I entertained my flesh, I could not hear from God at all. I now realize that I have to wait for God's will. I almost married someone that God did not even have for me. Older people look at me and think something is wrong with me because I am not married yet. My mom even thinks that I will not get married because I am taking so long to get married. Her exact words are, "I guess I will never see my daughter walk down the isle." I realize that when there is a godly man at the right time that is the one He has for me and I need to wait on Him.
It is also hard for me when I need something done and I think to myself, " It would be good to have a man around." My female friends sure do not want to come over and help me fix things but I realize that God is still shaping and molding me for that just right mate. God is preparing me.
I decided that I would keep myself yoked up with other godly Christians. None of my friends are having sex outside of marriage. We also pray for one another. We have a real support system. Sistas, sometimes we can be so yoked up with the world that we tend to fall when we are not careful. I also keep myself around other married Christian women that hold me accountable. I am friends with Christian married couples that keep me grounded in what a godly mate should look like. My married friends give me an example of what a Christian married life should look like. They give me godly insight on what to look for when I am approached.
It would be easy to find a worldly man. If I could settle and get a worldly man I would have been married by now. But I believe that it is a scheme of the enemy to make me believe that there are not enough godly men. There are godly men out there. I realize that I want my husband to be spiritual leader.
Now let me give you a piece of advice, please do not be alone in your home with a man. I now know through experience not to have a good looking or handsome man in my home alone. I know that it is easy to sin and I won't give sin an opportunity to happen as I did a long time ago. I now know that even having a man come in and out of my house looks bad. I thought that I could live by God's standards without thinking about my flesh and how weak it is. But now I know that is not true.
God has a handsome man lined up just for me. But for now, I am a single Christian woman that is enjoying Jesus. Sistas, we have to stay encouraged, stay in prayer, and continue to keep family and Christian friends around us to encourage us in our singleness. Learn to be joyful, while being single.
