As a single mom of two, dating can come to be quite a challenge. In the end, you are dating for not just one, but three. The special someone you choose to come into your life must be the best for not just yourself but for your kids also.
As I have been in the dating pool for many years, there have been days I just don't want to do it anymore. Days I feel discouraged,lonely, and that Mr Right will never come through that door. Yes, I am content and at peace with where I am, but there has always been the desire
for the companionship that God created inside us. It's ok to want this. People tend to be discouraging at times, not understanding why there are moments where I am not happy. They don't understand why I feel alone when I have my two kids and a busy house. Before, I thought there must be something wrong with me that I felt this way still..but, as time has gone on, and my Lord has worked into my heart, He has shown me why I feel this way.
To know that God designed us especially for companionship and unity. Over and over in the Bible it shares the importance of companionship,marriage,family.
In Ecclesiastes it goes share the values of why two is better then one.
One must of course tread carefully in choosing that special someone in your life..for me, marriage will be final..so though I am lonely at times, I trust my Lord to bring my soulmate to me.
A special reminder last night was when I saw my vita-mix blender I won, sitting on the counter.
To me, it's a special reminder that God is listening. He knew how much I wanted one of those blenders but couldn't afford it. At just the moment I was feeling really discouraged, I found an email saying I had won one.
A special pick me up to remind me that He's there...so if my God could care about me in such little things as a blender, how much more does He care about my desire for a soulmate.
So yes, it's ok to desire unity, for in creating us, He designed that and so much more. Don't be discouraged, just remember, that He is listening and He has a great plan for you and for me :)
Greater then we could even imagine..
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).
