How was your Valentine’s Day?
Surprisingly enough, whether you are single or married, I bet your Valentine’s Day was filled with lots of mixed emotions. The day set aside to declare love in our world is a great day, and yet a hard day for so many.
So, today, I want to talk to the singles in the room because V-day has a way of coming in with stealth fighters aimed at hurting hearts.
Not sure if you all knew that lonely used to be my middle name.
I thought flowers and chocolates were the fix all for the fog to lift off my life.
I was wrong. I was looking for the true relationship only God offers – the creator of LOVE.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR TODAY DEAREST SINGLE?
If you are a youngen single, (yes, I make up words) – hang in there.
There is a whole lot more life coming your way. Ask God for purposeful living…don’t put your life on hold.
If you are an older single, and the days keep adding up, keep declaring that Mr. Right is not lost…and keep becoming the best version of you.
Continue to go after the things you value knowing that Mr. Right is not the master key to those things. You and God are already a winning team.
If you are single because of divorce, God knows the D word was not in your dream plan. No woman gets married to be left holding her crushed heart.
Remember this: You don’t need to have a significant other to be significant. The prize isn’t marriage.
The prize is you stepping into the person God calls you to be in this season.
I was a bit older when I met Carl, and I remember the days when the beautiful bouquets were delivered to my peers at work. Deep down I knew there wouldn’t be anything coming for me. I’d smile and share something like this: You are so loved. Then I would go back to my office and put my head toward my computer and work harder.
I fell hard for the juicy lies the enemy offered me on the silver platter.
Today, I recognize that flowers and chocolate will never be enough to define my significance.
SINGLE FRIENDS, I’M CALLING YOU OUT TODAY.
YOU ARE LOVED BEYOND MEASURE BY THE GOD WHO DOESN’T NEED ANYTHING FROM YOU – HE SIMPLY WANTS TO REMIND YOU THAT YOU ARE CHOSEN, LOVED, SEEN…and SIGNICANT.
We are going to continue the conversation next week.
Invite your single friends to join you.
