Thinking about present-day society, one would think that single is a four-lettered word and marriage is the end-all-be-all really when we are all aligned with God’s purpose. There is no difference in Him because whatever season we are in in life, it is for a reason and for His glory.
Honestly, our mainstream society catalyzes our need for more or for what we do not have. But the way to counter that is to believe the opposite. Believe the opposite of what pop culture says is acceptable or the ‘the thing to do’ because nine times out of ten the opposite of the action/decision is better for us anyway—at least when it comes to having peace of mind, having our emotions intact, and having/maintaining health bodies. Believe the opposite and know that we all have different journeys.
You know, I can honestly say that I have wrestled with being single some days. Partly because my peers are married--this is weird because I have never been one to conform or adopt something because it seems like everyone is doing it. Maybe it is a sign of maturing and desiring one of the things that He placed within me-- and partly because it is expected of me: ‘Okay Jasmin, you have your education, now what about a husband and children?’
Spiritually, I pray for God’s will, but I have honestly allowed myself to be distracted by external factors that God is the least bit phased by. He is not moved by our circumstance. He is moved by our faith and knowing that we completely entrust our very lives including each and every aspect of it to His ever stable arms and loving care. He is moved by our faith because it shows Him that regardless of the questions from people, the statistics, the seemingly “right one” or “ones” we trust Him immeasurably. I mean is not that the least we can do with the infinite, omniscient God?
Trust, period. Believe, period. Know that He knows your amazing end and it is good, period. Trust it without question. Believe it without question. Know it without question.
Why not? His track record is impeccable.
