So being single actually does have perks after all. For me, it has allowed me to give every little piece of my heart to God. Which is what I strive to do daily. When you're honoring him & making him the love of your life its the best feeling in the world! I love getting up each new day giving reverence & honor to the KING of kings & the LORD of lords. Thanking him for all that he has done.
The beauty of this thing called life is that to some degree we all can give him a piece of our hearts. Single or not. That's what its all about giving him glory & honor. Essentially that's why we were created, to uplift his Holy name.
"Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth."
"My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long."
I think just as much as we should be infatuated with him he's just as equally happy to capture our hearts. He says that if we draw near to him he will draw near to us. And don't forget he's a jealous God. He's madly in love with each of us. So much so, that he created us in his likeness & image how dope is that?
"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded."
"You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me."
It's so sad that many of us don't have the time of day for God anymore. We're so busy living "our lives" he's simply an after thought, if that. Can you imagine what this world would be like if each of us gave God just a tiny piece of our heart? I'd imagine that depression, low self esteem, suicidal thoughts, etc would all be a thing of the past. Our confidence would skyrocket knowing that God is showering down his love on us daily & we too are reciprocating. I think that all this worldly stuff that we idolize today would be non existent. You do know that being friends with the world actually means you're an enemy of God, right?
"You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God."
So here's a thought. Although we can't rewind the hands of time i want to encourage each of you going forward to make a space in your heart for God. He's waiting with open arms. He absolutely loves praise and adoration. He is certainly worthy of that, and so much more! To God be the Glory forever & ever.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
