Some of the comments I’ve received from my readers has had me on the verge of tears. I’ve had comments from those who have even contemplated suicide because they’re tired of waiting for a husband. My usual response to them is “being single should not be a deal breaker for living”. What is wrong with this picture? Why is desperation taking hold of these women and making them feel as though their life isn’t worth living simply because they have no husband? My answer: a disconnection from God. You are not connected to your Power Source. Your Power Source will help sustain you through loneliness, depression, doubt…everything. When you’re connected properly, the Power Source is a beacon of light. Follow the Light to wholeness!
Disconnection from your Power Source creates a lack of
faith, no endurance, no patience. You
may be actively involved in your church-- on multiple ministries, but you may
just be doing church work as opposed to doing the work of the church. You’re going through the motions but your
heart is far from God. You’re working in your own strength and power instead of
working in the power of God.
Here are some of my tips to help you reconnect to your Power
Take the focus off of you and your situation. Jesus never focused on himself, he focused on others. He said not as I will, but Thy will be done. Can you say that?
Cultivate a reconnection to God. Read your Bible, pray and cry out to God DAILY! He may tell you you’re just not ready to get married . He may say there is another assignment for you and in order to fulfill it you must be single. If you don’t reconnect and listen, you’ll never know what’s on His mind. Caution: Be sure it is God’s voice and not yours!
Work on you! No one is perfect. Let the Lord show you areas in your life that need fixing. Marriage cannot fix brokenness. Only God can fix it. Let him make you more appealing and attractive by his powerful Hands. Let him work on your physical and emotional issues. Let him clean your house on the inside- unlock all doors. Let each room be open to Him. Your house was built for His dwelling. Allow Him to reign over your house because the house belongs to God.
