It almost seems like unless you’re married the church has nothing to say to you. They don’t tell you how to thrive in your single season. They don’t tap into those broken parts of you that need healing in order for you to be a good wife/mother. It feels like you’re overlooked most times because you’re single.
Reality check. Single people have problems too.
I’m honestly sad at the fact that so many women love God but are so broken. They want to walk in Gods will, they want to thrive in life , but have no idea how. How have you been in church your whole life and healing hasn’t touched you? Did we honestly just tell people not to have sex until marriage , love God with all your heart and everything is going to be okay? I’m so confused.
I honestly don’t know what’s going on in churches but I know what’s not going on…. healing.
Jesus Christ did not die on the cross for you just for you to go to heaven. He died so you can live a life full of freedom here on earth, too. How Do we have access to freedom but choose bondage? Easy. We don’t know any better. All we know is bondage, it’s comfortable… so we stay.
Single people are broken. Married people are broken. We have to stop telling people to just pray. Yes, God delivers through prayer . But , we have to stop being lazy. When do we actually disciple people out of bondage? When do we step up and show people how to thrive in God? How do we preach bible and follow it up with action? How do we heal from our past? How do women forgive their rapist? How does a woman forgive the parent that abandoned her? How does a woman thrive when all she knows is pain? I’m honestly tired of seeing so many Christians stuck. The same power that rose Jesus Christ from the dead lives within us , yet , we don’t own that truth.
Church girl. I see you. I hear you. I get your pain.
I know you feel alone. I know you wish you had someone to talk to . I know you want to be free.
I know you’re tired of being single . I know your marriage isn’t what you thought it would be. I know you feel misunderstood. I know it’s hard. I feel your pain.
Nothing is wrong with you because you’re still single. You are still fearfully and wonderfully made. You are not a failure because you got divorced. You are not any less than because you don’t have a child. You are a good mom even if you lose your patience. God loves you like crazy and it’s okay not to be okay. I know you’re frustrated, but, you are not alone. God hears you! Keep reaching out to him, cry out to him! Find at least one woman you can confide in that can pray for you and give you wise counsel.
Church girl, you are the daughter of a King. Before he formed you , he knew you. Ask God to help you forgive the ones that hurt you. Ask God to reveal the parts of you that need healing. Cry ! There’s a healing that only comes from crying. Clean out your soul so you can walk in freedom. YOU DESERVE IT!!!
Jesus didn’t come to judge the world but to save the world!
I pray that we can all be open and transparent in our church homes. I pray that God changes the heart of his people . I pray that we love one another even when we share our deepest secrets, hurts, and experiences. I pray that no matter what , we love our brothers and sisters unconditionally, not only in encouragement but in action as well .♥️✝️
