T H I R T E E N // single.



your current relationship status.


  

i'm a single lady. [cue beyonce.]

most days, i am content with the single life. singleness is not a disease or ailment. it doesn't define me.

i'm not a walking cliche though. i'm not 'dating Jesus' or 'waiting for God to send me a husband'. God is not a means to an end. Jesus didn't die to give me a husband; He gave His life to save my soul.  

but i won't put up a front and pretend to be the queen of singleness. there are days when tearful prayers come easier than thankfulness. those are hard days. i open instagram to see a left hand adorned with a pretty engagement ring or a cute pregnancy announcement or a new, blossoming relationship. it's not that i am not happy for that person - but once again, i'm on the outside looking in. loneliness creeps in, threatening to cripple me. but in those moments, i find solace in Jesus. 

the way i see it, i have two choices: i can sit in my bedroom with a pint of ice cream and cry myself to sleep, or i can live this life to the fullest with Jesus. i cannot bank my future on anything or anyone but Jesus. He is the only one who can satisfy my needs.
