Some thoughts about being single (1)


I think I will be speaking to the young ladies rather than the guys. Many girls struggle with singleness, because they think if they don't have a boyfriend or are not married, they aren't appreciated, valued, treasured, beautiful and worthy for a relationship. That's the biggest lie girls could ever believe. I know, it can be hard to be patient, but there are so many things in this world to enjoy... except for marriage with an earthly husband. There is another marriage, which is eternal. God loves you soooo much and you are His beautiful BRIDE! He showed you that big love He has for you by giving everything He had... there isn't a guy who would do that and not just that: He promised to always be with you and love you through every difficult time, mood and problems. Isn't that a great BRIDEGROOM?




When I didn't have this close relationship with God, I always thought about having a boyfriend, a husband... I've learnt from my parents that it isn't biblical to date a hundred boys and then find the right one, but I was looking around and I was seeing friends and colleagues with boyfriends and I was jealous. But after I've put Jesus on the first place in my life, I found the best boyfriend in the whole world: JESUS! In Him I found and still find everything I need and He's always there at my side. I think that if God wouldn't have found me, I would've been married now with someone I would've chosen, or who knows. God knew that I needed Him. How awesome! I'm so blessed and happy that I'm single and that I didn't have a boyfriend... I never had one; not that there weren't guys trying to woo me :p but I knew that my first boyfriend will be my husband and that's why I looked very carefully at each one who came into my way and asked God about what He thinks about them (that's the first thing I do). Perhaps it's shocking for you, I don't care, I know I haven't lost anything. I know for some of you it would be ridiculous if I told you: I didn't find dating in the Bible, so it's unbiblical for me. I even made a sort of 'promise' that there will be only one person who will kiss me and that will only be my husband at the engagement or nobody. I know, I know...you might think, I overreact, but that's what I want and I'm not in a haste to get married. I'm fine as I am, if I can be with the Lord with all my heart and being. How should I know that the guy is serious about the relationship till I'm not engaged? I don't want to give him that which isn't his. What I really want is to fully be in LOVE with God and to walk by His Spirit. I desire to reach to a high level in my relationship with the Lord.

Don't make such a big deal out of it... live your life, let it flow and let GOD be in control! Draw near to the Lord and He will draw near to you. And He will write the best story of your life. He can take you on a life journey you never imagined. I'm writing all these as a single and not as somebody who isn't going through the same thing you are going through with your feelings.

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
