Being Single Doesn’t Suck!

ENJOY YOUR SINGLE SEASON! This is the time to love on yourself, build, grow, make ready, and learn to lean on God. Everything else will fall into place but it'll never be right if you aren't ready when it comes. Stay strong πŸ’ͺπŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸ½

Y’all, I’ve been single for “coon years” and I’ve been through all the stages of single and feeling lonely and all that! The best stage has been the “single and satisfied” stage. I certainly did not reach it overnight and I did not always enjoy it but I certainly enjoy the peace of mind that I have now. The peace of knowing that I’m happy and secure and looking toward the future that God has for me, no matter what it looks like or who is in it.

It is so easy to become consumed with not wanting to be alone or just wanted to be married because all of our friends are. The fact truth is that no matter what, if our longing is for marriage or for a certain man or for dates or sex or a ring, then we’re not really ready. We are not satisfied with and utilizing our season to grow, learn, embrace ourselves, build healthy friendships and our relationship with God and we’re not preparing. What good will it do to meet that man of your dreams and you’re not even ready to receive him?

Now is the time to enjoy our space, to seek God on the moves He would have us to make, and to nurture the relationships we have. ENJOY yourself, date YOURSELF, and learn to love and be content with your presence.

Marriage is a whole ‘nother ballgame so we better be ready at the plate and able to swing!
