We happen to live in a world that seems be becoming crazier and crazier about love, marriage and fleeing from the single zone.
Once upon a time we were encouraged to take our time before tying the knot. Nowadays, side-eyes seem to come if five years have passed and the couple still hasn’t announced their engagement.
Being single is now viewed as a ‘waiting period’. An ‘awkward’ season. A ‘searching’ season. Searching for a spouse. Full stop.
The beauty of this phase/season/moment (call it what you’d like to call it) has been masked. Clouded. Covered. We don’t see this period as the amazing time it is.
A season to grow, develop and move in Christ. A season of unravelling – God continuously unravelling what He has planned for us.
A season filled with so much of His love we have no reason to fear. Being single isn’t a situation. It’s a season. A sign. A reminder that God’s got us. That He’s using this time before many of us make that step into a bigger season, to prepare us in ways we don’t even know; to experience amazing things.
Your position in life right now? Not a mistake. Regardless of what the circumstances are. God is still there and He is moving in your life. If you are in a tight/terrible situation, we just pray for His grace to pull you out. If you’re loving where you are, keep loving it and keep trusting in God, knowing that He knows what He is doing.
Some of you may be over the ‘expected’ marriage age. Some may be on your way there. Some of you might not be over the age of 20 but for some reason, you feel like you need to find yourself the ‘One’. Some of you may be at peace with being alone. Some of you are tired and wish they would come already. God is with every single one of you and all He wants is for you to hear Him, trust Him and move with Him.
Some of you may be in relationships, on your way to marriage. Some…not so much. Maybe some of you aren’t even sure if you can call your union a relationship. We pray that you hear God through the words here and find the clarity, assurance and/or guidance you need.
Fact of the matter is, there are so many cases. Everyone here is at one point of life or another. Some are certain. Some are not. It’s endless.
But what we can rely on, the One we know for sure is a constant, is God. Our Father. Our Shepherd. The original ‘The One’.
He is the reason this blog is here. He is the reason you’re here – we pray. The only One who can never let us down.
This blog will be full of laughs, a few tears here and there, and lots and lots of love.
We started this post with the image above to remind you, amazing one who loves God, that He is there for you, He has covered you and this season of yours is not a mistake. It is not a curse.
It is part of the beautiful, amazing plan God has orchestrated for you.
God’s got you
He loves you.
We love you too.
