The beauty of living for today

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. Corrie Ten Boom

I love to wish away my single years and fantasize about a life where I am Mrs. So-and-So. That time has not yet come, therefore, I need to live for today. It is fun to live in another time and place, because you do not have to worry about the problems you are facing today. I encourage you not to because as long “as long as it is called “Today,” we will should be encouraged in the Lord for our strength.

I am focusing on my singleness because I have come to realize that I have been wishing it away, but truth be told, I need to embrace it and all that God wants to do through it. Through you he might want you to turn your workplace into the mission field, for you to turn your classroom into the place where you make disciples of all nations.

As a women, this is going to be hard. If we are honest, men have an easier time dealing with their singleness because they do ( or at least we want them to) do the initiating.

How you handle your singleness is very important to God, and I am challenging myself as a daughter of the King to use it well and to redeem the time I have wasted loathing over what I do not have.

I want to restore my garden, rip up all of the weeds and lies I have believed and come to terms with that fact that I am single, but I am not alone.
