How to embrace singleness

Hello beautiful friends!

WOW! I can’t believe we’re already half way through February.  It amazes me how quickly time passes by.  It feels as if the older we get the faster it goes, so why not make the best of it, right?!?

Valentines Day is coming up in a couple of days and commercials, radio stations, and new movies love to remind us of it as much as possible.  In fact, I feel like stores take out all the Valentines decor and stuffed animals a day after Christmas has passed. How crazy!

My mind recently went back to my high school days and I remembered how much I hated Valentines.  I never dated anyone actually in my high school which meant I wouldn’t receive a beautiful bright red rose delivered to my classroom like almost all the other girls would. I think I almost wanted to pretend I would get one by simply purchasing one myself and sending it to me as “unknown.” That would have been very funny if I actually did and decided to confess it to you right now.  Seriously though, I promise I didn’t…

This month will be exactly a year after I broke off an engagement and although it was a painful decision for me, I can honestly say that it has blessed me tremendously. I have never really enjoyed a season of singleness as much as I have been now and honestly, I wouldn’t be experiencing such a feeling of completeness, peace, and joy if it wasn’t for God and all of the people He has placed in my life. This doesn’t mean I don’t long for a relationship because I do, but while being single God is continuously teaching me to choose happiness right now in this season as well. God alone completes and fulfills me and it took me twenty-six years (I just turned 27 last month LOL) to figure that out. I went from a mindset of “I won’t be happy until I meet the one.” Or, “I can’t ….. until he is in my life.”  To now choosing to find joy in everything God brings into my life and to explore and act on new ideas as He provides for me to grow and become the woman He needs me to be.

For God said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear….”

~Hebrews 13:5b-6

God knows best for us and we can trust that He will provide what we need at the right time. If He has placed the desire in you to be a wife or husband one day then believe He will bring that person into your life in His way and His timing. Believe, trust, and pray for him/her right now and that person will come, but in the mean time keep enjoying this season to the fullest…

Trust God, and Do Good… 🙂
