Have you ever found yourself in a place where you felt as though you had been forgotten about or as though the promises of God would never become manifested in your life? Well, I’m sure at one time or another we all have felt this way but the good news is that feelings are just that “feelings”. They are not always truth, in fact if we are not careful our feelings will often cause us to believe things which are the furthest from the truth.
As a single woman, I have found myself living in misery many days of my life operating in uncertainty not sure if God really had a “Boaz” just for me. You see, I knew because of the anointing that was upon my life that I couldn’t have just any type of guy but that he had to be uniquely designed and equipped to be able to put up with me and all of my stuff!
Come on! Don’t you dare think for a second that you are not a tough cookie to deal with. Truth is women are complex creatures as it is and Lord knows we must pray for our men who we expect to have the ability to “figure us out!”
I want to encourage you to know that no matter what your issue, baggage or pain from your past that God has someone who will either love you through it or in spite of it. But in order to receive what rightfully belongs to you, know that you first deserve it and that you are not damaged goods!
I don’t care how bad or dark it looks God has someone who will love you through every ounce of pain if you will commit now to the process of preparation and positioning. There are key things you must do as a single woman who desires a husband and they are:
(1) Take time to get healed: Hurt people Do Hurt People. Wounded women are very dangerous woman. Take time for you and get the help you need to not tuck away the pain but to face your fears to overcome your past so you can embrace a bright future the Lord has just for you!
(2) Take time to get to know Yourself: You will never know the type of man you desire if you don’t take time to get to know you as it relates to what it is you really desire and long for in a relationship versus what you have chosen to settle for.
(3) Fall in Love with Jesus: Your time of singleness are the most precious for it is a time you can commit all you have unto the Lord without distractions or having to worry about dividing your time. God is also a jealous God therefore He will not send a man to you until He knows that you will not use Him to fill areas in your life which were designed only for Christ to fill.
If you would take the above nuggets and apply them to your life I promise you will receive the joy, happiness and fulfillment you are seeking. We often make the mistake of thinking a man is the answer to all of our problems when the truth is the ultimate and final answer to every crisis or call is Jesus.
Now is the time to be truthful about where you currently reside in your relationship with Christ, evaluate how you arrived there and identify where it is you desire to be and get to work. Do not allow yourself to become overwhelmed but take it one step at a time and before you know it you will be in total alignment with His plan for your life and your Boaz will meet you while you are focused on serving the Lord wholeheartedly.
Peace & Blessings!
