Dear single woman,
When I formed you I knew who I wanted you to be. I made you special and unique. I gave you gifts and talents that are peculiar to you alone. Your eyes were made specially by my hands. All the features of your face and your physique were beautifully constructed under my craftsmanship. You are my masterpiece and you are beautiful.
You are the apple of my eyes. I mean it. I love you... deeply. I never take my eyes away from watching you. I am a Father who gives good gifts to His children and you are no exception because I deeply love you.
I want you to be married more than you want you to be married. I don't want you to be married because society says so. Or because you feel like time is running out. I want you to be married because I created marriage to model something that is much deeper than a man and a woman coming together. It is a model of how deep your relationship with me should be.
That is why I want you to be fully connected to me first. I want you to rest in my arms and trust me fully. Fully. Do not lean on your own understanding. Accept my word fully and commit to it.
Be married to me. Be knee deep in your relationship with me. I won't always tell you to do the things that are pleasing to you but I will always lead you to the path that is right for you.
Your flesh will resist but you must learn to walk by the spirit. You must consciously bear the fruit of the spirit. I am here to help you. Just be open to me and be sincere.
Because the man I have for you has to claim you from me. Remember that I give good gifts to my children. Good gifts only. And I have a good man for you. You will soon unravel your gift.
*My dear ladies, I planned on focusing today's post on "things you should remind yourself of as a single lady" but when I came to my computer to type, the words that came to my spirit are those you see above. Hope this is life-changing for someone out there.
Thank you so much for being a part of this four-part series for single ladies with me. Here is a recap of what we have looked at in the past three weeks:
- How God prepares you for marriage- the formation process.
- How a good mentor influences your choice of a life-partner.
- How to wait for your husband.
We looked at three stories in the Bible, that of Eve, that of Ruth and that of Esther but focused more on the story of Ruth. This is what each woman represents:
Eve: God's molding process. He is the potter and you are the clay. Let Him form you.
Ruth: Hard work, loyalty to leadership and a woman with a reputable character.
Esther: Beauty and a radical commitment to God.
My final thoughts:
- Please read the book of Ruth. There's so much to learn from her story!

- This particular series is ended but I will continue to write on relationships under the "singles" and "love n marriage" sections of the blog. So hope to see you more often!
