#GodlyWomen I once had a single friend who would put on a brave face for a few months and then when the loneliness overtook her, she’d break down in heart-wrenching tears and just sob, “Why doesn’t anyone want me? I don’t understand! I have so much love in my heart to give!”
I think, as women, most of us can relate to that statement, “I have so much love to give!” Giving love is a good thing, right? We’re commanded to love one another, right? But I want to ask you to think about something. When you have so much love to give… when you LONG to give your love away, isn’t your body one of the first things that you give to him? Think about it.
I truly believe that God has a plan for every single one of our lives. He has said it’s not good for man to be alone (however, I think He made women a bit stronger in this department.) So if God has a plan but you are still longing for a mate, then doesn’t it make sense to figure out what God’s plan is for your life? Doesn’t it make sense that once you start working with The Kingdom in mind, that if He believes you’re going to need help in fulfilling that goal, he will bring your teammate to you?
Yes, many of my readers are young moms and I was you, once. Who has time to figure out God’s plan right now? You’re wiping snotty noses, running to the doctor and trying not get fired because your son has had 3 ear aches in 4 weeks and your boss is not happy. But I say to you that right now, God’s plan is to be the best Mom you can be and if other opportunities come along to be the hands and feet of Christ, that is a great thing for your children to see. Keep your eyes on the Kingdom! And just as an aside note, did you know that nobody will be married in Heaven? (Matthew 22:30-32)
So for right now, give to those who need it. Find a way to use your spiritual gifts, whether it’s for your kids or for those around you. You don’t know what your spiritual gifts are? This link is one of my favorite sites for a Spiritual Gift test. It takes about 45 minutes, but I love it: http://www.kodachrome.org/spiritgift/ So, give of yourself. It’s a great discipline to take with you into a marriage: giving to others without becoming a doormat.
Once you enter into the new life of giving and truly becoming Kingdom-minded, once you start feeling a true calling on your life, you may be amazed at the people that He’ll bring into your life. Maybe… maybe… Mr. Right?
