Friday Encouragement!

I just want to tell you to hold on. Don’t give up in a dark place. As long as you keep walking, eventually you will see the light and step right into it. God has given promises to those who love and serve him. As long as you abide in him he will take care of you. Do not carry your stressful week into your weekend. Trust God, turn your worries over to him, and keep it movin’!! Happy Friday!

God’s Timing

God told me to do something, and I did not move. Has this ever been you? God’s timing is key. Failing to move when God instructs you to, can cause problems and cost you many blessings. God may show you an open door, but if you walk in it too late, there’s no guarantee that your blessing will still be there. You should also know that open doors can eventually close. When God sends you on an assignment, make sure you complete the assignment. Do not try to prolong your stay. Never be too afraid or too attached to move on to the next assignment. Some assignments include: ministering to specific people, being on a particular job, and being a part of a particular ministry. When you become comfortable in a place God wants you to move on from, he will allow uncomfortable things to happen just to get you to move. It is so much better to follow his lead the first time. Be clear in what your assignment is. Be obedient when it ends. Continue to move forward because God is always in your latter. But what if I don’t know my assignment? Glad you asked.😁 In the mean time, serve God, worship him, study his word, and tell others about Christ. God will eventually speak, and you will know exactly what you should do.

Being Single is not a Curse!

Our perspective of being single and being married is hilarious. Single people are dying to get married and married people are wishing they were still single! Either life is wonderful with God and miserable without him. Some equate single to being lonely. If you think you’re lonely now, wait until you are married. Having a husband does not cure loneliness, it magnifies it. It’s a miserable thing to have a mate that doesn’t make you their priority. You are hungry for all this ATTENTION from the man you’re married to and you don’t get it…..deal with your loneliness first. Only God can fill your void. But here are some amazing things about being single!

  1. Single people, you can come and go without answering to anyone. (I’m running to the store, be right back!)
  2. You can spend your money on anything you want without “Making a decision together.”
  3. You can come home from work and not have to worry about cooking for anyone. (Thank God for Zaxby’s lol)
  4. You don’t have to deal with another personality or mood swings, and trying to please somebody else. .
  5. You can lay out prostrate in the Lord, uninterrupted in any room of your house at any given time (Unless of course, you have children 😁) Mommy, why is your door locked? lol
  6. You can travel where you want! (If you have time off)
  7. You can live where you want! (eeny meeny miny moe)
  8. You can hang out with your girls all night long. As a matter of fact, you can have sleepovers and watch chick flicks like Baggage Claim, Just Wright, and Mother’s Day while eating a bunch of unnecessary calories! (From my lips to my hips, yay!!)

But seriously, singleness is what you make it to be. It can be amazing or it can me miserable! Enjoy it to the fullest because if you don’t, you will find yourself being one of those married people looking back at your single life, wishing you were single again. Being Single is not a curse, it’s a blessing! And once you master the art of singleness, you will move on to the ministry of marriage. Then you will want me to blog, “Being married is not a Curse!” Just kidding. All smiles and have a Happy Friday!
