Being single and 33 years old is not all that bad. I mean I know that I’m anxiously (not desperately) waiting to get married but, in due time. Actually when I look back in my life, I thought that at the age of 18 I was ready to get married! Boy was I ever wrong. The type of relationships that I had was ok but not all that healthy.
Until I met the Lord and allowed him into my life back in May 1999, my whole life from that point on changed for the better. God has shown me and taught my through his Word and his servant (Pastor Taylor) that, I am special in his eyes, one to be treated as a precious stone.
Matter of fact, a lot of us are simply not ready for marriage because there are a few things we need to do ourselves, before we put ourselves in the market so to speak. We need to, be accountable; get out of debt; be disciplined and build character.
This is the making of a virtuous women read Proverbs 31:10-31. This is what makes us attractive to men, matter of fact it will draw the right man to you. It teaches you how to be industrious, how to make a home etc….
Next, in I Corinthians 7:25-34 this helps us to set a standard in which we beautiful single Christian women can live by as we are shaping ourselves to become that virtuous woman. Also, in Ephesians 5:22-24 this teaches us how to submit ourselves to people in authority. If you cannot submit to your Pastor, Cell group leader, or Intercessor leader then you will not be able to submit to your husband – submitting to your husband is as submitting to God (see verse 22).
Listen, when we wait upon the Lord, he will renew our strength, and besides look at all the things we have to do to prepare to be that virtuous person anyway, you won’t have time to worry about “when am I getting married?!”
