In singleness, a lot of Christian women are more likely to complain in their season of waiting on god. their. I tend to see a lot of single woman geared up in what God has called them to do, and they are doing it well.
Here are some questions that a lot of woman think about, but are too afraid to speak out about!
1. How do you maintain your level of Commit to God in your season of waiting?
One way I maintain my level of commitment to God is by understanding this very simple principle, that in time of rejection that is God’s protection. There were so many times I thought, that okay, this time this job interview or this date or business opportunity is going to be the “YES”, I had been waiting for only to get a closed door in my face. And when those opportunities did not materialize, I felt heart broken, unwanted and not adequate.
But, what God has taught me is that, there is a time and season for everything under the sun (ecclesiastics 3:1). And when the door closes, that is quiet God whisper telling me daughter it not time. And that whisper gave me hope knowing God was protecting me from something that I did not need until I was absolutely ready for it. I challenge every woman reading this, to release all of your worries on God, who said, be anxious for nothing, but in all things, pray. Give God the desires of your heart, whether you are praying for mate, job, business, you name it; trust God with your hopes and dreams and you will never be disappointed.
2. How do you keep your focus off of sex?
As a young teenager, I am currently 37 years of old, I made a promise to God that I would save myself until marriage. I have a promise ring that I plan to give to my husband on my wedding day. This commitment has not been easy, as I have struggled in the area of sexual integrity. Putting myself in situations where my value has been compromised.
So, now what I do to keep focus, is renew my vow and commitment to God, pray and seek God daily in pray for my husband. I ask God to work on my heart and to transform me to be a better woman; so that when my husband comes along he will be able to recognize the God in me. Value the character of what I possess and cherish me as Christ loved the church; who sacrificed and gave himself for it.
3. If you are faced with temptation what do you do about it?
When faced with temptation, first thing I do is pray, there has been times when I have yield to temptation only to be ashamed like I failed God.
I presently have accountability sisters, who I share my struggles with. We meet every Friday and talk about our week and the areas that we want to improve both spiritual and personally. These conversations help us to and shape us to be women of Character and Integrity!
4. How Has God Kept you in your time of waiting on Him?
I am currently working on the vision God gave me, Ebony and Pink Pearls. This is an organization that empowers women to walk in purpose, purity and prayer. To encourage them to know who they are in Christ and to be unashamed of their past failures, and trust God for their triumphant future!
Getting to know yourself in the time of waiting is the beauty of healing in all areas of which needs healing. God is holding up His end of the bargain,but are you? Are you just sitting there waiting, and not working while you are waitnin? Think about all that you can be doing while you are waiting on God to show up for you. Is there something that you need to forgive? Is there someone that you need to forgive you?
Silence wrecked our marriage. Unhealed wounds divided us. Unkept vows separated us. Hello! My name is Jereè and I began this BLOG to share my journey as a wife as I start the process of mending the pieces of my broken marriage with God’s help by sharing my life #UnMended. God inspired the name “Mend The Vow” which means repair (something that is broken or damaged) Relationship with God and with our husbands. It is based on the Scripture in 2 Chronicles 24:12. My hope is to encourage other wives in the world who are, have been separated,and want to mend their marriage back together.
