"Marriage is a great desire to have, but not a reason for you to be found waiting and not becoming."
Are you waiting or are you becoming? I ask this only because I was once the girl waiting on my husband to start living. I was waiting on him to travel, make more money, and be happy. The reality was that I got so used to waiting that I was doing this in every area of my life. I would gladly tell myself, I will go hard for my dreams once I'm married…that was my mindset.
However, I learned something powerful while I was waiting…God never called me to wait, which means staying in one place until something happens. I was supposed to be becoming His bride.
In scripture, we are told unmarried women’s focus should be on the Lord (1 cor. 7:34). But for some reason, we think good deeds will equal God bringing a good man. When in reality, it may mean you growing, you healing, and you walking in purpose. Marriage is a great desire to have, but not a reason for you to be found waiting and not becoming. I personally wasted years in the mindset of waiting when God was calling me to become the woman He had called me to be.
I waited years for a man to come and save me when God was my savior. I waited years for a man to love me when God showered me with love daily. I waited years when I should've been becoming.
Becoming means to bring into existence, and that's exactly what God wants for us. To bring into existence everything He has for us. Your gifts, your talents, and your opportunities, God wants to bring that into your life. As you focus on becoming the woman God continues to show you that you are, then the waiting ceases, and living a full life begins.
Today, Daughter, stop waiting and start becoming!
"...An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband."
1 Corinthians 7:34
