A Message to the Singles
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23 NLT
The season is changing and everyone desires to have that special someone to spend quality time with for vacations and everything in the air signatures family and relationships.  This can be very challenging to your emotions.  I want to create some dialogue in your thoughts that will provoke you to look inward, so you will understand and identify what your triggers are before you enter another relationship.  Many of you reading this have not realized that being single is an option. You must learn to be content and look at what is right in your life as opposed to always focusing on the negative.  Contentment doesn’t eliminate your desires. You can be content today as a single and still want to get married someday. Christ was content going to the cross, but He didn’t really want to go. He wanted to do the Father’s will, and that desire overshadowed everything else. Contentment is a decision, not a feeling. It’s a determination to be satisfied with what God has given you today. Because of this, it’s possible to be content in your single state. If you practice contentment today, you’ll be better prepared for whatever life brings your way.  God’s plan for your life is to have a healthy, strong, happy, thriving, successful and lasting marriage; it will be challenged and there will be imperfections, but when you know God has joined it together, NOTHING that comes against it breaks its bond.  Single’s I want to make you think.

1.   Are you waiting for Love?  Never sit around and wait on a person to discover your worth, always give yourself a space of grace.  What you see in yourself, others will eventually see.  Do not compromise your worth for anything or anyone.  You are a gem of great price!

2.   Are you emotionally healthy? – Facing the truth about your partner, yourself, or your life can be painful and scary. How are you deceiving yourself? Sometimes we pretend our relationships are healthy, but deep down we know that they’re toxic and unhealthy. Don’t ignore the truth; it won’t change if you don’t confront it.

3.   Are you chasing a Ring or a Reality?  Society convinces us that we’re old by the time we’re 25. And instead of enjoying the fact that we’re getting wiser and more inspired and sure of ourselves, we’re being forced to stress over our “fading youth.” Instead of turning to marriage once we feel like we have a good grip on who we are as an individual and who we are in a partnership, we’re expected to turn to marriage before our youth and beauty and attractiveness waste away.

4.   Are you Building a Closer Relationship with God? Make daily prayer a must, and don’t be afraid to be honest with God. God already knows our thoughts, fears, imperfections, and mess-ups, so when we open our prayers with honesty, repentance and seeking forgiveness, our minds are cleared to praise God and begin hearing from Him.

5.   Are you Financially Secure? Build yourself a solid budget and stick to it, save your money, buy a home, travel and see the world.  You will never be happy with anyone in any relationship if you are not happy and secure in yourself.

Singles, God has given you this opportunity to get your life in order and live out your maximum potential. I encourage you to walk this journey of Singleness in wholeness and discover your path in discovering the Will of God for your life.  Find your identity and when the time is right, when you are healthy and in the right place with God, then the right one will come!  Confess every morning that number 1 is the new whole number!!!

Be blessed.
