Today on Singling Out Saturday I wanted to share this quote from Mandy Hale, author of The Single Woman. With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, I thought it might serve as a good reminder of who we are and not what our marital status is at present.
What we are waiting for
is not as important as
what happens to us
while we are waiting.
Trust the process.
I don’t know about you, but I often don’t trust the process. I think it’s something many of us have ingrained in us from an early age…question the process, doubt any feeling that is uncomfortable, be wary of what you are learning.
In the waiting of meeting someone, in the waiting of healing from a broken heart, in the waiting of a new adventure to begin…what if we relish the waiting room we are in? What if we chose to see waiting as a good thing that is perfecting us, refining us, and growing us?
Waiting doesn’t mean doing nothing, but it does mean trusting God’s process regardless of our desires and wants. It means finding who we are in relation to Him and recalibrating to be in His will for our lives.
So as we approach Valentine’s Day, let’s enjoy the wait and all that it affords us as singles.
