I am writing this with tears in my eyes. Yep, it’s one of those nights. I am feeling sorry for myself. Why am I still single? What is wrong with me? Why is God seemingly withholding a blessing from me? Why do I feel so lonely and discontent?
BUT…Ya know what?…This is what I am gonna do about it:
I AM GONNA STOP.
STOP crying, STOP wondering if I am pretty enough, STOP wondering if I am too boring, STOP questioning God’s will for my life, STOP rerunning old relationships in my mind, STOP trying to figure out what I could be doing different, STOP looking for the man of my dreams, STOP focusing on myself, STOP trying to have my future planned, STOP comparing my life to my married friends, STOP fantasizing about my husband, STOP dreaming about my non-existent children, STOP allowing hurtful comments about my singlness get to me, STOP torturing myself with all this crazyness, and most importantly…
STOP ALLOWING SATAN TO HAVE THE UPPER HAND!
I AM GONNA STOP! Will you?
2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”.
Colossians 3:1-3 “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God”.
