While I'm Waiting

Dear Single Mom,

I’ll be the first to say that I have been mad at God because I feel like He’s taking too long to give me the man that I have been praying and preparing for. When I catch myself being mad at God, I think of myself as having a tantrum just as a child has. Waiting can be hard and makes it difficult to see the plan God has for you while being in the middle of it.

Being single and having single friends has often been a topic of discussion. We all want God to give us the person we are supposed to marry, create a family, and grow old with. But, what if you looked at being single as a good thing. One of my married friends shared that the one thing she missed out about being single was that she was able to give God all her time and told me to enjoy singleness and just get closer to Him (God).

I am NOT saying to get comfortable with being single. I believe that God has a man specifically designed for every one of us. What I am really trying to say is that I am going to praise and love Him, while I'm waiting even if... Pretty contradicting, right? In Matthew 6:33 it says, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.”

While I'm waiting, my prayer will be that my entire life aligns with God's will. While I'm waiting, my prayer will be that my future husband is seeking God and His Kingdom first in his life. Temptation and distractions are constantly being thrown at every angle. So while I'm waiting, my prayer will be that God helps him run away from any situation that can cause him to sin. While I'm waiting, my prayer will be that he is in good health and for God to be protecting him always. While I'm waiting, my prayer will be that he is completely becoming bold for Jesus and that his heart is always willing to serve and share the gospel.

Dear single mom, start praying for your future husband before you even meet him. If you are a future wife in the waiting, I hope this has encouraged you to start lifting your future husband in prayer long before you say, “I do.” There is so much power in prayer!

Signed with patience,

Julie Cruz
