Over the course of the week I have been wondering what my Empowermoment would be about. The last few weeks were easy to start and finish because of the abundant blessings that were falling from above right into my lap! This week I am still being blessed but nothing in particular stood out.
Then it hit me, I have been getting attacked from the enemy and did not pay it much attention. For the past seven days I have had ongoing troubles with the opposite sex. Just for clarification purposes, I told you all a few weeks back that I had restored my relationship with God after being in a two year situation that had no purpose. I decided to go back to the drawing board and start just DATING!
I must admit the dating game changes dramatically once you begin an intimate walk with Jesus. There are certain characteristics that I am seeking and I am unwilling to budge on them! A prime example is that the next person that I enter a serious relationship with MUST have a relationship with Christ. Finding someone with those credentials is a huge challenge!
I already know what you’re thinking… I am not supposed to find my husband he is supposed to find me. I get that but apparently this meaningless dating is just that meaningless. I have yet to meet anyone who is half way equally yoked with me. But the word of God reminded me that “I am the truevine, and my father is the husbandman.” (John 15:1) I must stay connected to the truevine and be in close relationship with Jesus BEFORE Mr. Right shows up.
In the past I made many mistakes by allowing the men in my life to consume my every waking moment when in reality that is where God is to be. Being a single Christian woman is one of the hardest obstacles that I have to encounter in life. Some days I am so filled with the goodness of Jesus that a husband is the last thing on my mind. Other days, I am so lonely, yearning for the company or affection of the opposite sex that I want to cry. This is truly an upward battle but I am determined to make it to the top of the hill. Just the other day, in the midst of it all I had to say this prayer:
Thank you for being the LOVE of my life!! I am determined to keep my mind stayed on you while you prepare me for my future spouse. Just as you are molding me, I know that he is on the potter’s wheel as well and staying connected to you is how he will find me. Please continue to wrap your arms around me when the spirit of loneliness tries to fester that I might not waste my time with insignificant relationships but rather fine tune ours! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
There is more to come on this saga but for now I urge all of the single Christian women to EMPOWER yourself to let go and be with God. Society makes us feel as if we are worthless without a spouse but in reality we have the BEST MAN waiting on us to get on our knees for some quality time! To all the married Christian women, I encourage you to EMPOWER yourself to look past the small stuff your better half does to get under your skin. Trust me this single life is NOT all it’s cracked up to be!!! Have a blessed week ladies!
