I can’t believe I’m turning 31 next month. Next year, my age is off the calendar month days. 🙂 🙂 🙂
But, it doesn’t really bother me. To have another year added is a milestone, a blessing. But for some it could be dreadful, especially to singles like me. Right? Right? Com’n… 🙂
You feel like you’ve waited for so long? I do. Let’s be real. And you know what I’m talking about. For sure, if you were at my age, you’ve been bugging God more often than before on when you will really meet that person that He has prepared for you. Well, maybe you have already. God is not just telling you, yet. 🙂
Well, anyway, so how has waiting been for you? Have you been very impatient? Are you almost giving up that you want to take ahead of God? Or, giving up and just really decided to remain single for the rest of your life?
I hear you, sister. Waiting for me recently hasn’t been easy as well. Especially that I just moved to another country, building relationships and meeting new people. Being away from family and my friends didn’t help at all at this time of waiting for me.
However, God has remained faithful. His love continues to sustain me that I can only remain joyful despite of going through this season with little loneliness sometimes. I know that God is at work at this aspect of my life. And if I take ahead of Him, I will totally mess up what He has been preparing ahead of time. And I don’t want to do that. I can only trust His timing.
I mean, life is meant to be lived fully as Jesus desired us to have. Regardless of how difficult this kind of waiting can be at times, life can still be lived abundantly. Because my life doesn’t revolve around me and what’s happening to me. My life revolves around Jesus who is the very reason why I wake up each morning even if at times I don’t feel like going to work. He gives me reason to take care of myself because of the purpose that He gave to my life. He pushes me to go beyond my comfort zone so that He may reveal Himself to me more and see how much He can do more. He is my reason for living.
As I wait and prepare for God to bring me to that person He has for me, I want not just to wait and prepare for that reason but all the more for the time that Jesus will come back.
That’s what makes waiting more purposeful and meaningful. Waiting not just for somebody but waiting for the One who is really worth the wait. Jesus Christ.
Happy Waiting! 🙂
