When did we start this year and we are already in August? Indeed time flies. Before we know it, the year has run out and we are not who or where we used to be.
For some, many actually, they will not be singles anymore. Yes, it may look like nothing is happening, but time determines a lot of things.
Even if you are still going to be single, you are definitely either a better or a worse single. You choose what you want, but remaining exactly the same is not an option.
That is why it is important that you enjoy and value the moments you have at hand now.
Do not want a relationship so badly that you fail to appreciate the good things happening in your life right now?
Phillipians 4:4 (TLB) Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again, rejoice!
You are still alive? It is a miracle.
You can see, read and understand this devotional? God is definitely good to you.
You have a supportive family and a circle of influence that have sense? God is just too good to you my friend.
You have something that you are doing and the works of your hands are being blessed? Don’t even let me hear you say that one thing is doing you.
You are not moving from pillar to post or worrying over your health? It is because your bread and basket bowl are blessed!
Even as one who is in a relationship, you are enjoying every moment of it, the peace of God distinguishing yours from others? Then you will be of all men miserable if you are not grateful!
Dear singles, no matter what, no matter the challenges you might be facing now, make sure you know that God is too good to fail you; as long as you are walking in His purpose.
Romans 8:28 (TLB) And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.
Know it in the core of your being that God loves you too much and He is good to you at all times. Yes, you heard me. God is good to you at all times. Don’t let no devil tell you otherwise.
No matter how it sounds, this is not some motivational speech o. Lol. This is real o.
You have to count your blessings every single day. Not just for yourself alone. For your family, friends, and even the vicinity, state, or nation where you live in. I mean if they are not at peace, will you?
Personally, I have heard a lot of good and beautiful things happening to my friends in the last few months and it’s just been good news for me (meanwhile, if you are living for yourself alone, praying for yourself alone or doing things by yourself alone, just know that there is God o!) Situations have been miraculously turned around. And you know what?
In all these, I have learnt to take delight in every moment that God has given me the privilege to have. Because it does not take forever for things to turn around beautifully.
So there is no point being bitter, angry, judgemental, or having a sense of worthlessness just because things are not looking like what you want them to be at the moment.
Just know that, in all, as a child of God, He has got your back always!
Stay blessed and have a wonderful month. Yay! I’m excited already!
