Joys of Being Single - Timing

There are days that I want to be in a relationship. There are days that I'm frustrated because I'm not in one. Most of my friends are either in a serious relationship, engaged, or married. I don't understand why I'm not in one. I'm a smart girl, who works out, takes care of her body, is pretty smart, can carry a conversation, can cook, and somewhat physically attractive. I dress nicely...what's the deal?

While there are some guys that I might find interesting, there isn't anyone pursuing me. But tonight, I at least had some understanding that for right now, God has me in a season of others. One of my small group girls is going through a really rough family situation and while I was visiting with some of the girls tonight...they suggested a sleepover. So, twenty-four hours from now, I'll have possibly 7 high school girls here and I'll be trying to get some sleep.

Yes, I'm excited that I have the chance to invest in these girls' lives...but my heart still longs for a relationship that, hopefully, someday, God will bring together.

I'm right there with you! Totally. And we just have to rest in knowing that God's timing is perfect and that is why we are where we are right now. Invest in those relationships that HE has blessed you with. And thanks for this's nice to know I'm not alone in this struggle. :)

Ah, yes, being single is a journey - some days are a walk on a flowered path with a gentle breeze, while others are a journey up an icy mountain with little more than a sweatshirt to keep you warm - but no matter what the path looks like that day if we can look for how God is moving in the midst of it, what He wants to teach us through it, or who He wants us to minister to through it we can see a glimpse of His greater purpose for us. Keep serving Him and then, whether you are single or married, your life will have fulfillment. Blessings.
