Growing in godliness is a strong statement. Do you know what it means? According to Linda Odolofin, it’s to grow in faith, live righteously and follow the footsteps of Jesus, among other things.
She sums it up by saying,”Growing in godliness is growing and increasing in the things of God. It’s all about growth, and there are many ways to grow in the things of God, like acting in love, not only speaking in love…”
There are lots of reasons why you may well want to start a relationship. Nevertheless, sometimes you let your heart guide you in the wrong direction. So, you start one for the wrong reasons.
Let’s be honest. It’s appealing when you’re tired of living the single life.
You want to feel loved. You want to feel wanted. You want loneliness to go away. You want to fit in with your friends. You want to have sex. You want to be wrapped in the arms of a man. You want people to stop pressuring you.
I’m going to be real with you. The single lifestyle can be challenging at times. I should know. I’ve been single for nearly 10 years. Looking back, I wonder how I made it this far. But I did and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Do you know why? Because I have achieved a lot in that time. But I didn’t do it alone. God was by my side every step of the way.
Last week we looked at five things you can do while waiting on God for your prince. After the article went live, one of my readers left a comment. Her words touched my heart.
She said, “I have been single now for about 14 years after my second divorce. I like my time alone, but now I’m feeling like my life doesn’t have any meaning. I believe in God and I’m a Christian, but sometimes I feel this way. I know that I need to study God’s word more and meditate daily, but I get some distractions in my day so I go about doing other things.
Single women, it’s wonderful being single. Don’t you agree? This is the perfect time to get close to God, depend on Him and get to know the real you, while waiting with excitement – in faith – to meet your prince.
And let me tell you, he’s in for a treat. “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord.” ~ Proverbs 18:22.
