why

As you scroll through your social media feeds, it’s very common to see engagement photos, proposals and wedding pictures. It seems like so many people are getting married. Your friends, cousins, siblings and classmates all seem to be getting married. Naturally, you’re happy for them b/c you are in love with love. However, why does it seem like so many are meeting that special 1 and you haven’t yet?

I’m Going To Go and Get My Life

Some of you are living as in being alive, but you don’t have your life. For some of you, parts of your life are still left behind with someone from your past. A good part of you may have been left in a past relationship, but it’s time to take it back and live! Your life should be held hostage by no one. They may not be physically doing it, but you could be emotionally bound. Your soul could still be tied to someone in your past.

Finding The Pieces To My Heart

May 26, 2016 at 9:00 am

heart puzzle

Heartbreak is never a good feeling. The thought of starting over again doesn’t always seem fun when you think about it. You wanted what you had to work. You wanted who you liked or loved to be it. You invested so much into them! You gave so much of yourself but walked away feeling like you lost something.

If I Were You, I Would Marry Me

marry me 3

For starters, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you having a desire to get married and not being shy about it. I’m not saying that you’re running up to singles of the opposite sex screaming that you want to get married. I’m talking about the confidence of knowing that it will happen. I’m talking about talking about it with confidence and being unapologetic about your desire to be married. 

I Want and Deserve Your Love

I Love You 5

It may feel like you’ve been waiting forever to truly be loved by someone you want to be loved by. You have waited patiently and perhaps sometimes not so patiently. Of course, some of it has nothing to do with waiting on God, but quite often it’s the enemy who has been blocking what God released.

 

Your heart has been waiting for the day to receive the love from the 1. You have been waiting to give your love to the one. Perhaps you had some close calls, but it didn’t quite get to the place you had hope or expected. You should want love b/c God is love.

 

You don’t want love from just anyone, but you want love from the 1 that God has for you. You should not feel bad for wanting. God expects you to ask Him for what you want. He said, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4).  In other words, make God your happy place and He will give you the desires of your heart.

 

For too long, some of you have been made to feel guilty for talking about what you actually want in a mate not what you need. What you need is already covered, but you should be telling God what you want. When being in a relationship with God is your happy place, your wants being fulfilled becomes easy b/c you are so in tune with His will for your life.

 

So, you should want to be loved by the right one. You should expect to be treated a certain way. You should want certain things, and you should be unapologetic about it. Too many people have settled because a couple of needs were met, but God wants you to have what you want and need!

 

Don’t feel bad another day in your life for your wants. Ask God for more. You want more, ask for more. Don’t be ashamed to ask. Don’t be ashamed of your wants b/c God wants to fulfill them.

 

You deserve to be loved unconditionally. You’re supposed to be loved unconditionally. Anything less is not of God! Don’t listen to the noise in the crowd. You don’t need to compromise. You don’t need to scale back on your wants. God is a God who supplies your needs and gives you your wants!

 

So start back asking! Love is not just on the way, but love is here. Love is already in your heart, and more is coming to overtake you. The right 1 will shower you with levels of love you didn’t know you could experience! It’s the truth, so you should start believing it.

 

God is waiting for you to ask and ask in faith! Ask bigger than what you’ve asked. Perhaps you have said that you really don’t ask God for much, but you just want Him to do this or that. Well, let me tell you this, you need to start asking Him for more b/c saying you don’t ask Him for much isn’t as great as it sounds.

 

He wants you to ask. He expects you to ask. Scripture even says, “We have not because we ask not” (James 4:2). So, ask and ask big. You deserve love because Christ died and rose so you could have it all. Love does come easy when it’s real love b/c real love is from God.

 

In the meantime, stop watering down. Stop shrinking back. Stop being cute about your wants, and stop allowing others make you feel bad for wants. You deserve love, and I’m glad that it will find you in the right 1 for you!

 

As always, remember that you are Single For 1! That is all for now.

The Best Love You’ve Ever Had Is Coming

love is coming soon

 

Am I talking about a dream? No, I’m talking about what will become your reality. The best love you’ve ever had is coming and there’s nothing you can do about it unless you choose to reject it. Of course you wouldn’t do that.

Stop Asking Me When I’m Getting Married

July 9, 2015 at 9:00 am

 

heart question mark

The golden question that many experiences as a single is, “When are you getting married?” If they don’t ask that then it’s, “Why aren’t you married yet?” I experience it as well. My response has been, “When the Lord is ready, I’m ready.” For some of you, you may be thinking, if I knew the answer to that, I would tell you. It can be even more frustrating when a guy uses it as some type of pickup line. I know it’s lame!

You may still wonder when things will change with your love life. You may still be wondering when you will meet the 1 God has. Your love life is important for many reasons. It is something that you should care about a great deal.
