Single Ladies, You’re Worth The Wait

Single ladies, wait patiently on the Lord to act. 

I used to wonder when would he come. You know, “The One.” It felt like forever.  Dating had its ups, but it was surely exhausting knowing I was “wifey” material but, no one was trying to put a ring on it!  Many wanted the benefits of a wife, but not the commitment. I had my mind wrapped in endless possibilities, hoping that just maybe, if I stayed long enough to put up with just a little of what I didn’t want, then just maybe, I’ll possibly get what I really need. I was fooling myself and diminishing great parts of me.  Believe it or not, it felt like that was my best option, because running into a better man than the one I was settling for, felt far and few.  I was caught up in waiting for someone else to approve my worth, instead of me having the courage to claim my own power. Who would have ever thought, that what I imagined I could have would actually become a reality? It’s possible.

The wait seems long, but “you’re worth the wait!” You can have the one who rides with you, thinks of you before he thinks of himself; communicates his feelings and not forget yours; share his dreams and make sure he’s always building yours. Possibilities are always possible. And, what you dream of having can become a reality. Be willing to trust your emotions that tells you that you deserve better. Be willing to hold back from constantly putting your broken heart in the hands of someone new, who doesn’t have the capacity to heal it! Be willing to wait! You’re worth the wait! 

It’s a great feeling to see what I imagined is a living testimony. No facades. No bluffers. Real love. In the stillness of my wait, It’s great to see and be able to share that God does answers prayers. That He divinely connected me with a love that would heal my wounds and wipe my tears; that my dreams were worth dreaming and there’s someone who’ll dream them with me. 

Habakkuk 2:3 “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
