Single & Happy

It’s interesting to come across things you’ve written awhile back but have forgotten. Often times, when people ask are you dating and you say no, they act like that’s a problem. It could be for various reasons that you have chosen not to be involved with someone. Whatever the reason may be, never allow your status to define you. Being single, married, divorced, or widowed are all relationship status titles but they do not define who you are as an individual. Never forget that. So although this post/poem is dedicated to all my single sisters, be content and happy (although not always easy) in your status. You are not cursed but simply in preparation season and it will all be worth it if you don’t settle and wait for the best.

What makes you think that just because I am an attractive woman of Godly intelligence and confidence that I’m incomplete without a mate?

Who told you that

Without a man

Something’s missing from my life?

And if so,

What would that be?

Love?

I love myself and more importantly I love the Lord. He told me that when I delight in Him, He will give me the desires of my heart.

Security?

I have everything I need according to His riches in glory.

Intimacy?

Now, how’s a man going to get to know me when he doesn’t even know he is in the Lord. See my Father told me I’m above a ruby’s worth and a gem does not seek it is sought.

I’m single and that’s alright with me

See, it’s not that I oppose relationships. It’s that I detest co-dependency. As a woman, I know it’s not my role to chase after ANY man.

Esther 2:14 reads that I am to wait on my king and when he’s delighted in me, he will call me by my name.

My Lord does not intend for me to be needy or desperate. I am to be cherished, relished, valued, and honored. It’s not my job to convince or convict him of that. My mate will already know it and consistently show it. He will stay on his knees daily not just to adore me But to praise the Lord for the virtuous woman he has found.

So, when you see me by myself. I’m not alone. I know what I have coming to me. I’m single and saved, and right now that’s all I need to be.
