I’ve been learning a lot lately about cherishing and treasuring the season I’m in. God, for whatever reason, has allowed me to be still doing life single… I was going to say ‘alone’ but I don’t actually feel that is really the case for the most part. I feel so richly blessed by the precious friends God has and is constantly putting around me… . Yes of course, my soul craves to meet my soul partner… my other half… my life companion… the one who’s suppose to fill the man shaped void.
But the moment right now is what I’m choosing to be joyful in… I’m choosing to be content… I’m choosing life in. (Or at least trying to!) We can get so consumed by wanting what we don’t have – whether it be a partner… a divorce… a better job…our kids to just grow up and be gone… a better car…an iPhone 4… a holiday… a day off… a better figure… a better this or a better that… and we forget to actually enjoy LIFE! Those things actually come and go and we FORGET how set our heart was on actually having them in the first place!
The sunset that faithfully comes each evening to remind us of our creator… our sustainer and provider
I’m so grateful for the precious friends I’ve met or even grown up with… who are setting examples of spouses and parents who are striving and PRAYING that they leave a legacy worth living for. They are not pretentious and are the first to admit their faults and absolute need for God in every circumstance. A happy marriage is a choice… well behaved and disciplined children is hardwork… both are completely worth signing up for… but once it’s happening there is no stopping. So singles… join me on the journey of contentment in singleness… yet anticipation and excitement about the future gifts of marriage… and life. Cheers to Mr Right! I look forward to meeting you!
