Dear single ladies and gentlemen,
I’m so sorry that today’s letter’s coming to you a bit late, I have had a whirlwind of a day today.
I wanted to spend my day on the hill alone but ended up having 3fellow corpers coming along for the ride.
Talk about a total burst of the “alone bubble” but it’s been fun.
I had lots of lessons on relationships that God has been teaching me to write to you about today but as usual, I always love to write about the one that’s really impressed on my heart to write about.
I was walking down my street a few days ago when I just started thinking about the “almost relationships” that I have had this year alone.
Relationships that for one reason or the other never saw the light of day.
I couldn’t help but see God through it all.
Like, there were just some so-called friendships that I had clear warnings about. eg, “don’t go there Frances, it’s the same trap, different person”
They have been some that I felt I had go -ahead about, then something just happens to show that the go-ahead was from my own thoughts, and not from God.
I mean, how awesome is it that God directs my footsteps marital wise?
That He doesn’t want me to make mistakes?
I do not regret the day I made the decision to let God take charge of my love story, it’s been awesome so far.
I haven’t had to waste time in a relationship that’s not for me, it literally feels like God is preserving me for His own chosen son…
And as I thought about it that day, I just had to say “thank You Lord”
I see you Lord, through all the so-called disappointments, I see You.
And that’s what I want us to do today.
Stop all the complaints about the man/woman not being here yet.
Stop the worries about the relationship you thought was “it” not working out AGAIN.
Stop the sadness at 2015 passing you by without a man/woman to call your own.
Just take a moment with me and thank God for every “almost relationship” that never saw the light of day.
Thank God for all the “No” He told you.
Thank God for all the stuff that happened that made you see that that guy/girl isn’t the one for you.
Thank God for the direction He has been giving to you in the area of relationships.
Just say “Father thank You for every relationship that hasn’t worked out so far.
I see You through it all still Lord.
I see You through it all, thank You Lord!”
It’s been days since I thought about this but I have gratitude in my heart as I type this, I have immense gratitude in my heart.
It’s awesome to know that God takes interest in everything that happens in our lives – including our love life.
And we may not know who He has for us yet, but lets thank Him for everyone that He has shown us isn’t for us.
He is awesome and this our soul knows well.
Till my next Love letter,
