Do Your Part And Let God Do The Rest

Be The Unique Woman God Created
At the beginning of 2016, I wanted to write a post to single women.  I didn’t want it to be your typical post about going here and there and trying something different to meet a man.  I’d read enough of those.  I wanted this post to encourage her to be the unique woman God created.  Nothing came to me.  Couldn’t figure out what to write until today.

Would You Be Content In A Dungeon?
I’ve been reading through The Streams In The Desert devotional with my church.  I grew up on this devotional so I was excited when my pastor suggested we read it together. Today’s devotional gave me the inspiration I needed to write an encouraging post to all my single ladies.  Each devotional starts out with a verse then a reading and closes with a final thought.  Today’s verse was Philippians 4:11 which says, “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Paul wrote that verse from a dungeon.  Would you be content in a dungeon?

You’re Not A Peach Tree
The reading talked about a garden and how each item in the garden compared itself to the other.  The vine stood out to me because we had a grapevine in our backyard that bent and grew all over the side wall. Here’s a bit of what it says about the vine, “The vine was going to throw its life away because it could not stand erect and have as fine fruit as the peach tree.”  While reading that, I said out loud, you’re not a peach tree.  You’re a vine.  A vine bends.  That’s what it’s supposed to do.  Stop comparing yourself to a peach tree! It continued with this:

Others may do a greater work,
But you have your part to do;
And no one in all God’s heritage
Can do it so well as you.

Do It With All Your Might
Single lady, you have your part to do.  Do you know what your part is? In 2016, I want you to make it your business to find out what your part is, then do it, with all your might.  There is no one on this planet who can do what you were created to do.  I don’t want you to spend one more second comparing yourself to someone else.  I don’t want you to spend one more second thinking about throwing your life away because you’re not in a relationship, or you’re not married or you’re not a mother yet.  Guess what, perhaps doing your part will lead you to that relationship.  Even if it doesn’t, I guarantee you will be content and you will find 100% fulfillment doing your part.  I am and I do.

Something to think about…
