One of my sisters gave me a ride several months ago and we got talking about her relationships and marriage. I tried as much as I could to encourage her to keep LIVING WHILE WAITING as she was still waiting to get married; she told me she still believed that it would happen and that she was still holding on and trusting. Then she sighed and told me of how difficult it can get sometimes when she is all alone and needing that companionship of a spouse, of a husband. So many secret painful tears, so many very lonely moments, so many heartaches…

You (who are single) hear it all too, don’t you?

“Wait on God, He will make it happen.”

“Don’t worry; God will make it beautiful in His time.”

“Don’t cry, we will soon gather for your own wedding.”

“Keep believing, don’t lose hope, God is faithful.”

“You are next in line for a miracle.”

All the above statements are true and powerful, and 100% worthy to believe and stand upon. But the fact remains that there are times when you are all alone and the loneliness comes rushing in on you. Emotions well up in you and you can’t help but just cry. And you think how very ignorant we who do all the talking to are. We are not there with you; we are probably snuggled up close with our spouses and enjoying good sleep, only to wake up in the morning not knowing what lonely night you just came through and start telling you to hold up and hold on and keep believing, and don’t lose faith… I can bet that sometimes you shake your head (even if inside) with a wry smile and think as you walk by nodding to us…if only you knew.
But the truth is, we only speak the truth when we speak those encouraging words to you, if we feed your emotions it wouldn’t do you any good. Words can be very strengthening, especially those from a loving heart and caring lips. Plus, it would help if you had a trusted friend who you could share tales of those moments with, it can help a lot. You know there are still genuine, trustworthy people out there who can be helpers in this season of your life.

But most importantly, there is God. He created you and He knows you by name and loves you more than anyone else or you could ever do. He wants so much for you to believe and know His love, He wants you to know that if you really reached out you could touch Him, you could feel His embrace, and you could hear Him whisper those sweet somethings to you. Yes you can! He is real, not a figment of your or my imagination. His love is as real as the air you breathe. And he walks with you through this season, He knows exactly how you feel and He does have you best in heart, His best which will come to pass as you keep trusting, keep believing and keep waiting, there I go again…

So next time when you feel those moments of loneliness, call out to Him, reach out to Him, cry to Him, run into His arms, He never leaves you, and He does truly, absolutely, completely love you.

Jeremiah 31:3 
… Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

Isaiah 49:16 (ERV)

I drew a picture of you on my hand. You are always before my eyes.

Ezekiel 36:9 

For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:

Hebrews 13:5 (GW)

…God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you.”

I thought to share this incredible reminder of God’s everlasting love for you. Please listen attentively to the words.

    What a beautiful post. I think there are so many people in these relationships feeling as if they are walking alone when they have God with them all along. I remember years back when I realized one day that I had the most beautiful relationship of all and it was with God…all the things I was searching for in a human person was the kind of relationship that God was giving me….he never let me down, he loved me unconditionally, he protected me and well, I could go on. Once I realized this, I knew I was expecting a God-like Man. Now, I realize, we are all human and make mistakes and we can only be our personal BEST.

    Following you back on Linky by the way. = ) Thanks for visiting Dedicated 2 life and am glad you enjoyed the Passionate People post. I’m looking forward to the next upcoming ones I am doing.

      We all can get satisfaction from God, leaning and trusting in His love. No one else can satisfy like He does. Thanks for coming by and following. It is always great to meet with family. Have a great weekend!
