Oh! We know ourselves na. The only genre of sermons we have on our phones are on marriage! O’ boy! Different sermons by different pastors/teachers/preachers! We are over fed that constipation sef is happening
But still, THE ONE isn’t coming/No where to be found
Marriage seminars, we are there
Singles conference, we are there
Weddings we were invited to and the ones we were not invited to, we go show face😋
But still THE ONE isn’t coming/No where to be found
Chill, I’m not saying preparing for marriage by going for marriage/singles conference or listening to sermons is bad. No! It’s very good and advisable.
My point is, our focus!
Our focus has shifted from the Creator of Marriage, God!
Our focus has been placed in our search for THE ONE, so any churchy/Christian ish things that has to do with growing in Christ is avoided, but anything that has to do with Getting the One is very much embraced.
Matthew 6:33 says to Seek FIRST the Kingdom of God and all other things will be added.
Matthew 6:8 says God knows our heart desires even before we recognise the need for them
Proverbs 3:5 says to Trust in the Lord with all your heart, commit your ways to Him and He will direct your path.
In a chapter in Lady in Waiting by Debby Jones & Jackie Kendall, ” Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances may be, whether divorced, widowed, or single and getting older every day, be assured that God has not lost your address or your file” (IF He wills for you to marry, I know some of us are scared of dying a single, on a lowkey level, I am too, but I’m trusting Him to take care of it) He knows exactly what our needs are. Trust me! But we’ve got to let Him work us through the process.
Our focus has to change back to Our First Love.
Remember the story of Peter walking on water towards Jesus, yeah? While his eyes were on Jesus, he was walking on water, Bro must have felt so good. But then, for a moment he took his eyes off Jesus and guess what, you know it, he began to sink!
When we shift our focus off Jesus, sinking begins to occur. We become troubled and worried by/about everything that’s not going right in our life. Remember that when our eyes were on Jesus, we were worry-free. Not because the problems were not there, but because our focus is on Jesus and we trust Him enough to take care of us.
Let’s Shift our focus back to GOD! Shift our focus back to Jesus! Shift our focus back to the Holy Spirit!
Psalms 37:4 AMP says: Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
Seek God First!
The One will come… (If it’s God’s will😀)
Marriage is a beautiful thing, ignore what the world is saying about marriage. We Christians are to follow God’s manual of Marriage.
Be about in your Father’s Business and watch Him work things out for your good. Remember Romans 8:28☺
PS: I’m a single! I wrote this as a reminder and encouragement to you and also to myself. We all are a Work In Progress (WIP) Don’t beat yourself too much ehn. Enjoy this process! It’s gonna be worth it!
The FOCUS should be on GOD
Watch Him take care of You
