Single young women….
Praise Jesus for your singleness! I’ve been wanting to write something for a while to just say, praise God for you. Really. You have no idea what a beautiful season this is in your life. This time in your life where there is no guy by your side is such a blessing (though maybe in disguise.)
I know that the internet and magazines are bombarded with weddings these days. Weddings this, and weddings that. Not to mention baby blogs everywhere and wedding DIYs and ideas galore. I remember during my single years (I say that like I’m 100 or something) how badly I wanted to be dating or courting someone. I have totally been there, done that. I remember looking around at different friends and people I knew who were dating and yet I found myself on friday nights in the bookstore coffee shop, reading and writing….alone.
If you are reading this and still waiting for “the one” all I can say is, it is worth it. Keep pressing on to Jesus and continue using this time to know Him more. I can look back now and I am SO thankful…so, so thankful that I used that time in my life to pursue Christ. Because ya know what? Now I rarely have time to sit alone, read my bible, and spend hours in worship and prayer. My attention is divided between my husband and my little boy who I am constantly chasing after. (I’m grateful for worship music and those little prayers throughout the day to get me through!) Those single years of studying his word, reading about how to prepare myself as a wife and one day as a mom. God obviously blessed us with a son super soon and I was able to use those years prior for good.
Thank you, for being set-apart. The world needs more young women like that. Thank you for standing up for purity. For keeping a pure heart and being an example of His light and love. The world needs those who are willing to stand and sometimes even wait for the best. It is so worth it, friends!! May the Lord bless you during this time and keep pressing on to know Him more. Much love!!
