Yes, Yes I Am
You’re independent, they tell you. Independence seems to make singleness an attractive status, does it not? You can do whatever you want, whenever. What about the times you really want to be doing your “independent” thing with someone else? When you are hoping to share the adventure? More than that, you want to share laughter, ideas, and time.
This scene from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer describes independence eloquently… and also makes me smile, so I hope it does the same for you!
Does independence free you, or cage you? Do you make decisions to go out, do more and learn new things, regardless of who (if anyone) is by your side? Or do you wait around by yourself, hoping someone will remember you? When you seclude yourself, you open the door to letting your thoughts and the lies you’ve heard become more and more real. You start to convince yourself that this is how it will always be, and that you don’t deserve someone.
That’s not true. We were created to be in relationship with God, first of all. It’s important to remember that God made Adam… and then He made Eve. It wasn’t good for man to be alone, so God sent Eve to fill that need.
God Knows the Desires of Your Heart
We cannot fill each other’s emptiness. The ache for companionship and love is only truly filled by God. Once your heart belongs to God, you are in the right place. God knows the desires of your heart… and if you are willing to ask Him to make His desires your desires, you are going to have a full, wonderful life! If He placed the desire in your heart to be married, He will fulfill that desire. He knows your spouse, and you, better than you know yourself. He knows what you need to be learning while you are still single, so that you will be ready to be the best you for the love of your life. I have to remind myself not to get so caught up with my plans and my timing… because God holds time in His hands, and has the bigger picture.
Choose to Live!
I’m going to live this day fully, by being the spunky independent woman God made me to be. Being single and spending time alone isn’t the worst thing ever. That’s when God speaks to your heart. But… I’m definitely excited for being independent together someday!
