One of the most important responsibilities we have as women is to guard our hearts.
Our goals, hopes and dreams all flow from the well-spring of our hearts (Proverbs 4:23).
For this reason, it’s no surprise that we often lose our focus when going through a breakup or when dealing with relational challenges.
It’s difficult to stay focused on the right things when your heart is hurt from something the wrong person said or did to you.
The best way to stay away from the wrong things or people is to simply be patient and continuously seek God’s face for his guidance and wisdom.
Is it easy to do those things? No. Is it even convenient to do those things? HUGE NO. Is it expedient and worthwhile? Resounding YES!
It is always fruitful to seek God concerning the matters of your heart. Why? Because no one knows the ins and outs of your heart the way your Creator does. He knows what you need. He knows what you can handle. He knows who can handle you. Moreover, He knows who’s deserving of the privilege to handle you.
If being single seems a bit daunting & exhausting, that’s a good thing. It shows you are actively working hard to live the best life you can while single. This walk should never be a breeze or a whimsical walk in the park.
You should constantly feel stretched and challenged. You should often feel exhausted by the weight and size of your relentless prayers to God as you ask him to fulfill your colossal-sized dreams.
Your life as a single woman is the only time you’ll ever have to work on yourself and prepare yourself for your future spouse.
After all, what does it profit us to dream greatly but to live lowly, small and unaware of our greatness? What does it profit us to pray for God’s very best but allow average men into the most intimate parts of our hearts?
It’s impossible to experience God’s unimaginable if we’re entertaining the ignoble and unworthy (i.e. dating men who have no direction or purpose).
Use your time as a single woman wisely. Protect your heart. Value yourself. Be mindful of the company you keep. Pursue your goals & dreams relentlessly and without limits.
Protect the precious cargo that God has entrusted to you.
