Hello ladies!! Summer school has ended and I'm back! So I was on social media the other day and kept seeing a lady that had proposed to her boyfriend. Most of the people on social media were saying that was crazy. It wasn't until I came across an IG comment from a girl saying she didn't see anything wrong with women proposing. That's when God sent me a word! In Proverbs 18:22, it says, "He who finds a wife finds a good thing". It DOES NOT STATE woman should be desperate and find a husband! My interpretation of of marriage is that husbands are supposed to be leaders. Today, while reading my bible, I discovered in 1 Corithians 11:3 it states, "But I want you to understand this: The head of every man is Christ. And the head of a woman is the man. And the head of Christ is God." We are supposed to be led by our husbands in marriage and before that be led by our boyfriends in courtships or relationships. If the guy you are dating is truly a Godly man, (not just a church boy lol) he will tell you his intentions (which should be marriage). People invest their time in what they truly see as important. If a guy is stringing you along and you feel like you should be proposing then LEAVE! The right guy that GOD has for you, will have the intention of marrying you! Stop looking for a man to fill the void in your life! Remember that you have Kingdom work to do! I also read today in 1 Corithians 7:28, 32-34 it says, But if you decide to marry, that is not a sin. And it is not a sin for a girl who has never married to get married. But those who marry will have trouble in this life, and I want you to be free from this trouble.32I want you to be free from worry. A man who is not married is busy with the Lord’s work. He is trying to please the Lord. 33But a man who is married is busy with things of the world. He is trying to please his wife. 34He must think about two things—pleasing his wife and pleasing the Lord. A woman who is not married or a girl who has never married is busy with the Lord’s work. She wants to give herself fully—body and spirit—to the Lord. But a married woman is busy with things of the world. She is trying to please her husband." This passage of scripture is saying that, marriage is a lot of work! I have not been married but just looking at my parent's lives and other married couples, its quite evident! I can understand, being a single woman myself, that it can feel like God is betraying us by not giving us our Husband when it seems like everyone else is getting engaged and married! But we have to realize that we have KINGDOM work to do! God has ordained a purpose in each of us and we will definitely be more productive in our purpose when we are single than married! The bible says to Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5). Trust that God will provide your husband to us in HIS timing; not ours! I can speak from experience that the times I wanted something and decided to take matters in my own hands, don't compare with the blessings I got from God when I waited! I remember just last summer, I was complaining that I never had a job then that same week, I got called to work at a radio station! This job was God-ordained! So ladies, stop searching for a man! Figure out your purpose and get busy working for God! Don't waste your season of singleness!
