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.
Have you been looking for ways to develop your faith? Are you confused about the word faith? Or are you yet to discover the unlimited access of faith? If that is the case, then this is for you.
A lot of ministers, Christian writers and men of God of different languages have made a lot of effort in defining the word faith. Here are some of the definitions given:
A few weeks ago, my life was extra busy. I was working seven days a week including late into the nights. I didn’t have any spare time for God. Do you know how God got my attention? I’m going to share my story about a painful tooth infection that changed the direction of my life.
For a long time I thought God was punishing me. Why did I have to go through this? Did I do something wrong? Or do you just not love me? I need answers because I can’t take this anymore.
These are the kind of thoughts that would flash through my mind, day in and day out. And they still do.
Let me tell you why…
Let me take you back to the beginning…
It must have all started from 15.
Yes, we know that fornication is wrong. We know that sex before marriage is a sin and against God. But how can you help me? It’s not enough saying that which is wrong when you haven’t told me how to make things right and deal with it.
It is very easy to get attached to someone. Spend enough time with them, enjoy their company and join in communication long enough that he knows everything about you; you will begin to ‘fall in love’.
Are you brave enough to use your hidden talents? Or have you buried yours like the man in the bible? He was too scared to use the one he was given. Sometimes, you stay in a job that’s not giving you any fulfillment. Why? Because you’re scared of stepping out of your comfort zone, identifying your talent or talents, and using them.
But is that what you’re supposed to do? What if you lose out on a better quality of life by not taking action?
If God has a plan for your life, death cannot take you away. Marian Adejokun, a teenager from Croydon, can testify to that.
In January 2011, on her way home from college, Marian developed severe pain in her eyes. She used over the counter eye drops from the chemist to help ease the pain. Instead of relief, she ended up in intensive care at the Royal London Hospital for more than three weeks. Her skin peeled off, and blisters covered her from head to toe. She almost died.
