True health and wellness comes from the Lord. To be truly well, we have to be complete and healthy in Jesus Christ alone.
Mathew 6:33 “ Seek ye first and kingdom of God and His righteousness and all theses things will be added unto you.”
Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “ For I know the plans I have for you declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope ad a future.”
These Bible verses are so beautiful but sometimes I forget God’s promises:
Complete in Jesus means not lacking. I am a single woman, and I have been most of my life. I have had a couple short marriages that were not Christ centered and thus they ended in divorce. When I choose both of these men, I was looking for someone to “fill the void”. Truly, I thought I loved them, but deep in my heart I knew I was latching on and not waiting for God’s plan.
In the beginning of these relationships it was nice to have someone pay attention to me and care. I easily mistook that for love. Feeling cared for, it was easy to give myself away, and then I felt I needed to marry to justify my infidelity. Then in both marriages I woke up and was lonelier then I had been when I was single.
Today, I need to remember this. I often sit in my kitchen reading His word and wish for a Husband to come join me for my Bible study and life. I truly do long for someone to be my life partner. I could use a bit of help making big life decisions. I would like someone to be my protector. I would really like someone to cherish me, like Christ cherishes the church. This is a desire of my heart. Yet it seems a bit silly since I have been so careless with two marriages already. To fight this longing, I try to remember that Jesus is my husband. I am His. His Holy Spirit is here to comfort me. He can help me in big life decisions. I just need to “Be still and know that He is God.”
I share this today, because I know I am not alone in this desire to have a spouse. There are many dating website making millions of dollars because so many of us are desperate for love. Encourage someone you know that may be feeling this way to remember, God is our Loving Father, Jesus is with us always and the Holy Spirit is our comforter.
Our Father loves each and every one of us so much, that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us. (John 3:16) His arm is not to short. He will give us the desires of our hearts, in His perfect timing. Today be encouraged that God does hear your prayers and is answering them. Be patient.
Trust Him on your path.
It’s OK to be single. Paul said, “If you can control your lusts, it is better to be single”
Desperately lonely is an unhealthy way to start a love relationship with a humane. It is the perfect way to start a relationship with Jesus!!
Be fit and be blessed,
