Hi ladies and gents ❤️
This blog was started to provide a voice for single men and women of God.
At the end of the day, a large percentage of us are wanting the husband or wife that God has created for us.
Are you ready?
How do you know if you’re ready?
And how do you know if she/he is the one that God has created for you.
First question: Are You Ready?
Well more than likely the answer is of course! I’ve been single a while. Lord what’s the plan? Where is he? Where is she? I know how to cook, clean, and provide a stable home.
Second question: How do you know if you are ready?
If your response is anything like the top question, I’m sorry to tell you that you’re probably not ready.
If that burst a bubble, I’m sorry!
However, the purpose of a mate is not to fill a void. It’s not to keep us from feeling lonely. It’s definitely not to make us feel whole.
A mate is created to help you in your purpose.
You should not, I repeat should not, enter into prayer for the sending in your spouse if you do not know your purpose.
Now sometimes, your spouse will be the one to encourage and establish the foundation of your purpose.
But if you don’t even know what your purpose of Earth, start there.
I promise you, when you learn your purpose and are living in or preparing for that purpose, that is when your spouse is sent.
While Adam was sleeping, God formed Eve from his rib.
Though very familiar, the prior verses are equally if not more important.
God knew 3 verses (Genesis 2:18) prior to the creation of Eve (Genesis 2:21) that it was not good for man to be alone.
However, God waited until Adam had been working in his purpose of naming every single creature before He sent Adam his helpmeet.
So ladies and gents, the question you must ask yourself before “why am I still single?” is “Am I truly living in my purpose and whole enough to accept my spouse?”
What in the world is that?
Well the Bible says “And the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh.” (Mark 10:8)
Not one and a half, but two. Now most believe it means two individuals become one. I believe it is two spirits become one.
How can you provide a whole spirit if you are not whole in God. Meaning you can’t be half flesh half spirit.
You must die to your flesh to receive your spouse ❤️
How do you know if she/he is the one that God has created for you?
Now, let’s say you’ve met someone and she/he gives you butterflies galore 😍
Well first question you should ask is are they a Christian?
Well thats probably an obvious yes.
But here’s the thing, it’s not.
Anyone could claim they are a Christian and know a few verses in the Bible, such as John 3:16.
Ladies, we all want a man who can lead. If they are leading you based on false pretenses, the relationship is headed for a crooked path.
Men, the woman was formed from the rib to protect the heart and lungs (the reason you breath and live) As a man, and human for that matter, your heart is a very vulnerable and sometimes hidden part of who you are. If you let someone who may think they are your rib protect the most vital parts of you, it may cause the very thing that you’re living and breathing (your purpose) to die.
Are you able to let them go?
This is a tough one.
Once we find someone who is literally the best thing that has happened to us, we don’t want to let it go.
However, I believe in having God’s hand on every aspect of the relationship (from meeting-death).
If you relinquish control and allow God to essentially work on the very thing that you have given value to, it keeps you from making the huge mistake of making someone your idol.
We know that God does not like idols.
By praying “Lord, although I truly care for this person that has entered in my life, if it is not of you, take it away. For your will is so much more important than mine.”
This prayer not only relinquishes control over this relationship, but allows for this relationship to be placed in God’s hands.
This allows for let God work. And when God works, everything is truly perfect in its own time ❤️
Grace to you and peace!
