Today is one of those rare days when I feel EXTREMELY grateful for being single. That’s not to say I’m not enjoying being single, over time, I’ve grown to love and appreciate this season of waiting. In my previous post I talked about the Dating and Courting series at my church, which I’m loving. It feels as though I’m getting free counseling on the most important relationship I’ll ever have outside my relationship with God.
I’m grateful for the series because it comes at a time in my life when I’m ready to hear it, without any external factors to distort the message. Would I be willing to make a sound discernment of the message if I was in a relationship? I don’t think so. Here’s why I’m grateful for this series. It comes at a time in my life when I’m actively seeking a healthy life, in every sense of the word. I’m practicing Luke 15:8 spiritually, Ephesians 6:10 psychologically, Matthew 6:34 mentally and 1 Corinthians 6:20 physically. I want to have healthy friendships, I want to be a healthy member of society, I want to have a healthy family, I especially want to have a healthy household with my lifetime partner. The most important being, ending a generational cycle of unhealthy and destructive relationships. I’m not going to settle for less than a man who loves Christ. I am become the person that he deserves, now. It is my hope that I will be able to make that discernment about him when the time comes.
“I think a perfect example for a Godly man to pursue the heart of a woman is found in scripture, how the heavenly father pursues our heart both passionately but with patience. That’s how you deserve to be treated. That’s how you deserve to be pursued.” Anthem Lights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhAHIuZbM-A
Gosh, there’s so much to write about regarding this topic, but I got to go because I’m starving and I’m having dinner at my Aunt’s place tonight. She’s an amazing cook and I cannot afford to deprive myself of such a privilege any longer. I’m also running on coffee and an empty stomach, a recipe for disaster.
I AM NOT AFRAID TO SAY THAT I’M WAITING.
