Hey you amazing Virtuous Villager you! How many of you have heard, read, or just plainly been told to write a list of what you want your future husband (or wife for the fellas that read this)to be? Typically when it’s shared they pair it with the scripture in Habakkuk 2:2- write the vision, make it plain… I mean it sounds like a good idea- BUT the other day Holy Spirit revealed to me that the list is a distraction and actually sets limits and in some ways can cause you to think too small. Hear me out, when we make a list its typically a laundry list of wants and what we think we want in a future spouse. Yet, God knows and is going to send who we need! In the season of waiting, it’s actually a season of preparation moreso than waiting. You wait for a bus but you prepare for a spouse. Understanding that uniting with a spouse isn’t the be all and end all of life either. So if you are living a life on hold because you’re waiting for “the one” to come it’s time to hit play and LIVE on purpose NOW! Reality is, your waiting could be the very thing holding up manifestation, we are to be actively living on purpose intentionally. I want to encourage you that you’re enough regardless of your marital status, that does not define you and please believe that the preparation during singleness is what gives you the wisdom, strength, and fortitude that will assist you when your marital status does change. Stop cursing your singleness and embrace it, learn something, do something, help someone, serve your community & local church, go on an adventure- LIVE! And for my fellow parents that are single, souled out, and raising a child(ren) be encouraged that you will not always be doing things alone, I know it’s a lot but know that God is a very present help and with you 24/7, 365, you are not in this alone! Help is on the way, believe it. Heal and prepare for the spouse God is preparing for you and your family. You are not forgotten, you are not unwanted, you are precious and therefore God is about to send you treasure, no more trash- YOU ARE WORTHY OF GODS VERY BEST! Believe it, receive it, walk like it.
Thank you for seeing us right where we are. Thank you for healing us of past hurt, trauma, and abuse. Thank you for making us over and making us whole as we willingly stay on the potters wheel. Thank you for covering us as we walk single and souled out, thank you for protecting us and girding us up as we will not compromise or lower our standards. Father have your way in us and through us. Lord wrap every single person parenting and believing for help and a spouse to journey and grow through life with, wrap them in your arms. Strengthen and encourage them to continue to trust you and not grow weary in well doing. Lord, open our eyes to see you, open our ears to hear you we need clarity in this loud and busy world- we desire to hear from you above all. May your voice be louder than the noise. Lord order our thoughts, direct our steps, and may your will be done in and through us.
In Jesus name,
