There’s a Reason for Your Season: The World is Your Stage
Consider this… There once was a young girl filled with dreams and hopes to be a movie star. She prayed every night to grow up and be someone the world will know. As time passed and life resumed that little girl grew into a woman who harbored resentment, bitterness and was disenchanted at what all her prayers had ultimately produced. She wanted to make a difference in the world she wanted her name written among the stars. But, instead she led a humble life that she felt no one knew of. She also felt guilty for her ill-mannered dreams for she had not much to complain about. She was a passionate author who relished in her love of literature and shared her heart’s wealth with others. She showed her appreciation of word by teaching others how to read. She was a modern-day heroine, fit to be the model for a proper leading role in any academy award-winning movie. What she didn’t yet realize was that unlike a make-believe character, whose life expectancy is short, she in real life became immortal helping the lives of many and someone the world did know and could never ignore.
While contemplating the lesson plans for the next following day, it suddenly was revealed to her the lesson meant for her today. Her eyes filled moist as her heart was overjoyed, for at that moment she realized that God had listened to her voice. The little girl in her rejoiced as she looked out of her home’s living room window and noticed the written words on the side of a truck. The words were her lesson, the word was a gift, a message just for her sent from up above. As she sat in wonder and as the tears fell down for once she could not find a word to describe her gratitude none seemed appropriate not a one. The words from the side of the truck read – “IT IS DONE.”
The short story above is just an illustration to help you understand that nothing is a coincidence and all is in God’s plan. Many times we don’t understand or clearly see the benefits of God’s plan, but that is because God thinks on a much bigger scale than we do. Just because things are not done your way does not mean that it is not being done in the best and grandest way. Be patient and trust in God for all things and reasons will be revealed in due season.
Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Lonely and Single
There is no such thing as being lonely and single. You should never feel lonely for you are never alone in this world. There is a Heavenly Father that is always willing to keep you company if you should choose him to. Single is impossible for you to be for you are a part of nature and not a separate entity, so being single simply doesn’t exist. Embrace the fact that you are a member of the Universal family of nature. It’s all a matter of perception.
You should feel gratitude that you are able to concentrate on self. Many people would kill for your opportunity. Perhaps prince charming or princess lovely is right around the corner. The love of your life deserves for you to greet them with a good attitude.
Perhaps you are on a journey towards your life’s mission and purpose. You are being trained to fulfill the goals that you always desired and your goals require your full concentration. The system of nature is a give and take relationship. You have to give an offering of sacrifice to take your bow of glory and receive all your heart’s desires. It’s a system designed to keep your ego in check and maintain your humility, your humanity. Being without a life partner at the moment is not a downfall but an opportunity. Rejoice and give thanks for the present moment of blessed possibilities.
Bride of Christ
When you are single it is a great time to get to know Christ. You can give him your full attention and get to know what a true partnership should resemble. In a wonderful and loving relationship with Christ, you learn to develop the skill to love and accept love without being dependent on the physical. The reason why the divorce rates in modern society are at an all time high is because many people have grown to base their entire relationship on physicality. A solid relationship can only withstand the test of time if grounded on the foundation of mutual respect and spiritual love. Get to know Christ in your time of solitude he is the best partner you could ever have. Love him and be cherished and you will never feel Lonely and Single ever again.
“The monstrosity of sexual intercourse outside marriage is that those who indulge in it are trying to isolate one kind of union (the sexual) from all the other kinds of union which were intended to go along with it and make up the total union.” ~ C.S. Lewis
Revelation 19:7-9 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
