Single Season- All the Glory Belongs to God!

Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. "

This is the 3rd installment of the Single Season blog. I felt compelled to complete it before the end of the year. This scripture says it all. You may wonder, what does this have to do with the single season? A LOT!

Sometimes our desire to be married can become an idol if we are not careful and in our single season, we are so worried about when or if we will ever get married, that we don't maximize all that God has for us in this season. One of my biggest breakthroughs this year is reaching contentment. Of course the desire is still there and I actually look forward to being married, but it's no longer on the forefront of my mind. I now realize that I must give my all in EVERY season!

The reason for this scripture in this post is that it is a reminder to us that God has an assignment for us right now. He loves us SO much! Could you imagine our Father, trying to get our attention and show us all these wonderful things that he desires to do in and through our lives and here we are staring at one situation we want to change and missing out on all the other great things he has given us now!

We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth, people need what you have! There are souls to be saved, sicknesses to be healed, children to be raised, families to be set free, books to be written, businesses to be started, we could go on and on.

People are indeed watching us and not everybody is going to step up in a church to get saved. We are the church and God has called us to let our light shine in dark places! He called us out of darkness and into His wonderful light, so that others could receive that light too!

Brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you:


Be encouraged and know that Almighty has not forgotten you. He promises when we Seek first His Kingdom and Righteousness that All these things shall be added unto us. He promises no good thing will he withhold from those whose walk is uprightly, He promises that you will not suffer shame, nor will you be humiliated! I am praying for you dear heart and I love you, but Jesus loves you SO much more!

God bless and Happy New Year!
