Today, I got the book I have long waited for. :)
As I start this journey, let me share a beautiful poem written by a woman who as Kendall and Jones put it, "chose to take advantage of her singleness."
The Single Gift
How blessed you are, you single one,
Don't talk of care and woes.
You've got too much to be thankful for,
Oh what, you'd like to know.
It's no mistake, no misdirection
Of God's perfect plan
That you've not found your special lady
Or you, that certain man.
God loves you so and has much more
To give than you've ever received.
That He's giving His best to you right now,
You really must believe.
His best is Himself, do you have it in full
Or only a bit on the side.
No man can meet your needs like God,
Nor can a lovely bride.
If your life's not complete, you know that Jesus is
And your life He will fill
If you'll only put Him first each day
And live to do His will.
He's gifted you for undistracted
Devotion to the Lord.
There should be nothing that can interfere
With Him and prayer and the Word.
Unless you let down the guard of your heart
And let others take His place,
Then you'll lack joy and peace and hope
And not experience His grace.
So give your heart right back to God,
Let Him keep it safe for you.
And when it's better than His best,
He'll make your one into two.
Donna L. Mihura
Because after all, it's not about finding the right man (woman) but becoming the right woman (man). :)
Happily waiting. ♥
