For My Singletons, Pt. 22

As a Singleton, the most resounding advice that I've been given recently is to wait on the Lord.  To wait on Him in all things, especially concerning a relationship and what it entails.  To me, this is a reflection of Paul's words in Philippians 4:11:
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I'm learning that many people aren't this: content. But also in this learning, I know that there's a reason & purpose for why God has each of us in the seasons we're in.  Most of this deals with His timing & His preparation of what's to come.  Sometimes we're just not ready yet, sometimes there's something (or some things) still left for us to learn, & other times, it's just as simple as Him preparing that other person as well.  Regardless, have we truly taken this time to develop our relationship with God, to listen to Him, to build upon His words?  The relationship with Him should be first & foremost. 
Don't worry about what hasn't happened or what may happen.  Live today for what it is & grow in God.  In the meantime, He'll leave no stone unturned as part of His preparation & timing.  Also, we mustn't lose sight of "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord." (Proverbs 18:22)  It isn't the other way around.  Ladies, he will find you.  Fellas, you will find her. 
Allow God to work.  No one can do this better than He can!
Until next time.
