Being in a relationship especially a romantic one is really a big deal to the millenials. If you don’t have a romantic partner at the age of 20 or more, people will start to say that you should start finding someone who will be with you for the rest of your life. They will pressure you to get rush and open your heart for a lover.
But they don’t know that there is a very important lesson that God wants to teach us in this wonderful season. If you want to love somebody else, you need to learn first what love is all about, and you can only find it in the arms of God. After you will learn to love God, you will then learn how to love yourself and other people.
If you don’t know how to love God and yourself first, the tendency is you will start to put unrealistic expectation to another human being and at the end of the day, you will learn that they can never fill the emptiness that you feel inside because only God can do such thing. That’s why in your season of singleness, allow God to mold you. Give Him the time to create your character, your work ethic, and allow him to fix your emotional health first.
Your state of singleness is not only important to you but also to God. Because it’s the time when He wants to give you vision and a purpose. He wants you to know who you are without a person because if you won’t discover it, you will be put in a situation where you will be validating your identity to someone else.
Remember that there’s nothing wrong with the season that you are in. Use this season to know more about God and yourself. And when you are ready, you will meet the right person in the right time.
