No longer Waiting: Intentionally Preparing for the love that I deserve

Purposely Preparing for Love


Single, Preparing, & Trusting God


In the intricate tapestry of life, the single season is often viewed through the lens of waiting—a period suspended in anticipation of what lies ahead. However, for Christian single women, it's time to shift our perspective and recognize the single season as a sacred space of preparation rather than a mere waiting room.



The Danger of Seeing the Single Season as Waiting

When the single season is perceived as a prolonged wait for a life partner, it can inadvertently lead to frustration, doubt, and, ultimately, the temptation of sin. The weight of unmet expectations can cast shadows of discontentment, questioning God's timing, and even questioning one's self-worth.



Biblical Insight from Esther 2:12, KJV:

Esther's journey serves as a powerful illustration of the importance of preparation during a designated season. In Esther 2:12 (KJV), we read about the meticulous process of purification that every maiden underwent before entering the presence of King Ahasuerus. The twelve months were divided into six months with oil of myrrh and six months with sweet odors—a deliberate preparation period.


Significance of Preparation:

  • Spiritual Purification: The single season provides an opportunity for spiritual purification, aligning one's heart with God's purpose.

  • Personal Growth: It's a time for personal growth—discovering individual strengths, passions, and refining character.

  • Cultivating Contentment: Preparation fosters contentment, allowing singles to find joy and fulfillment in their current season while trusting God's plan.


Strategies for Navigating Frustration:

  • Focus on Personal Growth: Instead of fixating on the desire for a life partner, invest energy in personal growth and self-discovery.

  • Deepen Your Relationship with God: Use the single season to strengthen your relationship with God through prayer, studying Scripture, and cultivating spiritual disciplines.

  • Community Engagement: Surround yourself with a supportive community of friends and mentors who can provide encouragement and share experiences.

  • Set Realistic Expectations: Acknowledge that God's timing is perfect, and His plan for your life may differ from societal expectations.

  • Pursue Hobbies and Passions: Explore and indulge in activities that bring you joy and align with your interests.

Embracing the single season as a period of preparation transforms waiting into an active and purposeful journey. By aligning with God's timing and investing in personal and spiritual growth, Christian single women can navigate this season with grace, patience, and an unwavering trust in God's plan. Remember, you are not merely waiting; you are preparing for the extraordinary story that God is crafting for you.
