I just finished writing an article titled ‘Why Are You Still Single?’. It captured the turn of events around me, making reference to the fact that there seems to be an internal pressure that gradually builds up when friends around you start getting engaged while its seems like you are left to explore the world of singleness. The article contained what I consider the antidote to that internal pressure – Patience. I mean I felt really happy with myself that I could put together something that encouraging to single folks out there who might be feeling discouraged and lonely.
Now, here I was encouraging my very close friend who had been crying and feeling very sad because her boo travelled to a state very far from hers and would be away for almost a month. I thought to myself ‘See me trying to figure out how to live on top of whatever situation I find myself; how to be just fine without a boyfriend yet my friend that has one is crying because she is missing him… Life sha’
What can I say? We have this really awesome Father who is always willing to grant our heart desires, meet us at the point of our needs and ensure we have our desires granted even though He knows we will come back with yet again more requests. From “Lord I want a husband/wife” to “Father I want a beautiful wedding” to “Daddy I wan born pikin” then later it is “money for “Junior’s’ school fees” and the list goes on.
So whatever situation you find yourself, always remember that you aren’t the first to be there, there are people in worse situations, God will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able and there is a way out (1 Cor 10: 13) most importantly never forget that you have this really amazing Father who knows your needs and is never tired of meeting them. Cheers!!!
