{"...and you have been filled in Him, who is the head of all rule and authority." -Colossians 2:10, ESV} 

For all you single ladies out there, I want you to know something.

No matter how down you may feel at times about finding a significant other, do not let your anxieties trump over your confidence and trust in God. The very gift of singleness is the freedom it offers to pursue the most meaningful relationship we could ever have; a relationship with our Heavenly Father. It is through our connection with God that we learn who we are, discover what our purpose is, realize what true life looks like, receive confidence in ourselves, and feel truly loved. God has so much to offer us, more than any human being ever could. 

If I could offer each and every one of you a piece of advice regarding your singleness, it would be the piece of advice I give myself everyday:

Do not be the woman who believes that by lounging around in patience, you will be rewarded with the real life version of the Prince Charming you have always dreamed of. Sitting around and doing nothing is not the solution or the call. Your life is not meant to be a pity party. 

Instead, be the woman of God that you are called to be. Rise up, and shine the light of your undivided attention on not only thriving in your relationship with the Lord, but also on performing work in the Kingdom as well. Your life was given to you by God and its important to acknowledge it for the true gift and beautiful honor that it is. Ladies, you do not need a man of God in order to live a Kingdom devoted life. You are a woman of God who is called and equipped by God and God alone. 

You have an important role in God's story, with or without a significant other. And you are also complete in God, whether married or not (Colossians 2:10). Focus on why you are here and pray for someone to join you on the journey all while doing so.
