Lamentations 3:25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.
You are a single Christian Woman. You value marriage and children and long to be a Godly wife and mother. However, God has not yet fulfilled those desires in your life. Married or single unfulfilled desire is a life long problem. Sometimes we desire things in opposition to God. Why would God impress upon our hearts the value and worth of a God centered marriage without also fulfilling that desire by giving us a God honoring spouse? What should single Christians do with this unfulfilled desire? Trust GOD! What do singles do in waiting? Be at peace while waiting on the Lord’s perfect timing.
I know. It’s hard to wait on God. The last thing you want to do is get ahead of God and pick the wrong man and waste more of your precious life getting rid of the mess and getting back on track again. I had the same thoughts of “Will it ever Happen? Are there any good Godly men left?” but like you I had to exercise the fruit of the spirit of patience. While you are waiting, the trick is to not become bitter and to keep a good attitude. Because little do you know your husband may be right around the corner. But if he see’s you with a sour face, he may not approach you. Pray. Let God know the desires of your heart, which in reality He already knows what and who you need better than you. But go ahead and give Him your wish list and let it go!
Proceed with the life that God has given you to the fullest at this level. Give your all to your career right now and make it flourish. Keep a laugh in your heart and a smile on your face. Do the things that you enjoy. Sometimes we think God is taking too long to bless us with a husband but often times God is waiting on us to be ready for the blessing He has prepared. So you’re waiting on God and God is waiting on you to grow up in certain areas. God had to work with me in a lot of different areas in order to get me ready for the blessing and it doesn’t stop once you are joined with someone.
God continues to work on us throughout outer life. Remember He who has done a good work in you shall bring it to completion. It’s a process. Life is a process. And you will go through different stages. The difference in marriage is you won’t be alone. So instead of always saying when God when? Pray that He shows you the areas of your life and character that need improving to prepare you for the blessing. It’s important for you to know that you’re not going to rush God along by your worrying, He’s not in a hurry. Luke 12:25 who can add one day to your life by worrying?
Waiting is not easy. You never know what God has in store or when. When I came out to California, I thought I was coming here to continue my education. I had no idea I was going to meet the love of my life here. In fact when I came out I was living in the beach community of Santa Monica and I looked around at the men and thought to myself, “I will never meet him here because these men were into surfing, wearing flip-flops daily, and dressing very casually even if they were very wealthy which a lot of people here are. They are just comfortable with casual dress.”
Now me, being an east coast girl, that doesn’t work for me. I’m interested in suit and tie professionals. Men looking sharp and all about business. So I saw these men as frivolous minded. I’m attracted to smart men! I like intellectual conversations. A man needs to be able to stimulate my mind first before he has a snowball’s chance of keeping my attention. So I just kind of put it out of my mind and kept doing my thing. But lo and behold I did meet the type of man I wanted.
Complete with suit and tie, educated, super smart, a serious-minded computer genius no less, cute as a button, and a Christian man to boot! Wow God!! I trust you!!! HE GAVE ME EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED IN A PLACE I DIDN’T THINK I WOULD FIND IT. “MY WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS, MY THOUGHTS ARE HIGHER THAN YOUR THOUGHTS!” GOD IS SAYING I’M SMARTER THAN YOU! Indeed you are God and what a good thing. Your blessing is anywhere God wants you to be. Our nature is to fret and worry and try to figure things out. God calls us to confidence and peace. But you may say I don’t “feel” confident. It’s okay, don’t look at confidence and peace as feelings. They are positions! Take the position of confidence and peace. God is in charge and He knows what He’s doing. His plan for your life reflects His all surpassing wisdom and His tireless love for you. Trust in his timing and be at peace.

Isaiah 46:10-11, “My counsel shall stand. And I will accomplish all my purpose. Calling a bird of prey from the east. And the man of my counsel from a far country. I have spoken and I will bring it to pass. I have purposed it and I will do it.”
Psalms 103:13, “As a father shows compassion for his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those that fear him.”
Philippians 4 :11-13, “I have learned whatever state I’m in to be content. I know how to be abased and how to be abound. In any and every circumstance. I have learned the secret of facing plenty, hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”

There is strength in numbers. Ban together with your single Christian sisters and support each other.
