It can be hard to know your worth when you’re watching people around you are getting into relationships or have been with the same person for eight-plus years. Then there’s you, the single one that has not dated in several years or never has dated anyone like myself. I remember being in high school and I wanted to be in a relationship with someone. By the end of my senior year in high school, I begin to think maybe The Lord is not ready for me to be in a relationship. I was rejected a lot in high school by guys, and I learned those rejections might have kept me from making the wrong decisions.
When I started attending college, I realized that life did not revolve around boys. I begin building a relationship with Jesus and trusting that He will send the right person into my life at the right time. I learned how to have more confidence in myself and know that I am worth more than one-minute relationships and one night stands. I know who I am as a person and I do not need to change any of my qualities to fit any guy’s preference. Walking in God’s purpose taught me that I do not have to long for a guy’s attention because I am in my “lonely” season. I know that I serve a God that loves me more than any guy and I do not think anything can beat that.
Society shows that the idea of relationships is the best thing ever and gives us the idea that being single is dry and dull. Singleness can be a good thing at times to figure out who you are as a person and learning what you want to tolerate or not tolerate in a relationship. We have to understand that if we know our worth, then we can get through life not requiring validation from guys. You show that you know that you deserve better and you are worth more when you begin to learn that you don’t have to date a bunch of guys; you don’t have to lose your virginity with your friends, and you are becoming comfortable in who you are. When the time is right, God will add that special guy into your life. Any comments or questions? Let’s talk in the comment section!
Prayer: Lord I ask that You bless the women and girls that are reading this post. Help them to know their worth and guide them to understand their purpose on this Earth. If any of these women or girls are in an intoxicated relationship, remove them from it, Lord Jesus! Help them to know that when they build a relationship with You, You will show them the person that is truly meant for them. In Your name, Amen!
