Life always turns out better when you submit to God

Posted by Justine Mfulama on October 24th, 2019

Have you ever felt like you needed a man's approval in order to feel good?

You want him to like you. You want him to see that you are a catch! You want him to agree with you that you are pretty, smart, popular, lovable, but most importantly, that you are worth his time.

As crazy as this sounds, a lot of times we want a man to claim us in order to feel more important, more beautiful, more desirable. More like a real woman!

And I get it. I totally do.

I long for the day my future husband professes how much he has been looking for me and that I am the blessing he has been waiting for all his life (I know I’m a little extra lol).

And while the feeling might be very true. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!

No man can add or subtract from your beauty, intelligence, worthiness or value. You already are all that and more, even as a single woman!

You see as single women we are no strangers to either, rejection and heartbreak. We go through the motions of dating, courting, and break-ups, but have we ever learned how to really heal afterward? Do you really know how to enjoy being single?

While it does hurt not to be where I thought I would be years ago, I do stress the fact that life always turns out better when I submit my plans to God.

There are so many instances in life where I thought I had it all figured out, just to find myself in the biggest challenge ever. And you know what, Jesus came through. 

I have yet to resent a detour.

So yes, even when it hurts and sucks. I pray to God daily that he may turn those tears of hurt and pain into tears of gratitude and worship. Today I pray that you all may:

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. - Romans 12:12
