To my single sisters on valentines day
I know it’s cute for Christian girls to pretend like Jesus is your Valentine. That’s precious and everything but I know deep down a dozen roses and Ryan Gosling telling you you’re beautiful wouldn’t be bad either.
Your heart is made to be romanced. You crave for the hero rush in and tell you you’re worth fighting for. This is a beautiful thing and part of the way you are created. Don’t be ashamed of it. Be proud of your feminity. Woman was literally formed from man. We were made to compliment each other. It’s ok to want this in life….but don’t rush it.
Remember being single is just a season of life. Right now most of the country is covered in snow. Your toes are frozen and you have forgotten what it’s like to lay by the pool. But before you know it you will be cranking up the A/C longing for a cold day in the snow.
This is the same with singleness. It is a season of life. You can wish it away or you can make the most of it.
According to my calculations on an earlier post, there is a .0016 chance that you won’t get married. Chances are in your favor you WILL find your prince charming. But until then why not enjoy the season of being responsible for you and you only?
When you meet the man of your dreams there are some areas you hope he has figured out that you won’t have to work through together. And your dream man is hoping the same about you. Why not take this season of singleness to take the following 3 areas of life and sharpen yourself. Here are the areas you will look back and appreciate most:
Get out of debt
No one wants to say, “hey babe, guess what, I have thousands of dollars in bills that come with me!” When you get married that becomes BOTH of your debt. Do both of yourselves a favor and work on that now. Rachel Cruz has some excellent resources for college students to get out of debt.
Protect your body and your heart
If you have read any of my other blogs you know I am most passionate about this subject. I have never met someone my age who wishes they would have dated more guys or slept around more. Nothing good comes from sharing your body with multiple people. You were made to become ONE with ONE. When you step outside of those bounds, the scars follow you into marriage. There is no erase button to the decisions you make today. Sex is the concrete to a relationship. Concrete is not made to be moved, ever. Save your heart and body for your husband, you will both thank me later.
Pray for your future husband
Yet don’t you hope your future man is debt free, not sleeping around, and praying for you as well?
