I need to preface this blog with a few words. 1st, despite the title, this is not a romantic blog. 2nd, this blog post reflects my personal views on my personal relationship. I by no means believe my ideas are for everyone, or believe everyone should conform to my ideas. I am simply sharing my thoughts.
“One day a knight in shining armor will come riding to my rescue. He will dismount from his noble steed and storm the castle doors to discover, I’ve already slain the dragon.”
This is not to scream “I am woman, hear me roar.” It is not a campaign to support feminism, nor is it designed as a man bashing statement.
I say I do not need a knight to come to my rescue because I am not a damsel in distress. There can be a stigma that single women desire or need to be rescued from the life of solitude, loneliness, or singlehood itself. Many single women themselves believe they need a man to provide for them and to love them like no one else.
My life is full of family, friends, and people who enhance my life, people whose company I enjoy. I am not lonely and I enjoy the solitude afforded me as a single woman.
All my needs and provisions have already been met through my Heavenly Father. If God chooses to use a man to provide for me then that is His choice, however, it is not required, as my Father owns all things.
God loves me in a way no one else can. The love God has for me is the most satisfying and fulfilling love I will ever experience. No love from a man can equal the love God has for me.
See, I do not need to be rescued. I am single and very happy to live the life I am living. I am uncertain if I will ever marry and I can say with all sincerity I am comfortable with whatever God chooses for me, in fact, I can say with confidence, I have no preference. I trust God. I know He has the best plan for my life and I am happy to walk the path He has for me.
If God chooses for me to married in the future, I know I will be just as happy as I am now being single because I will be in the Will of God. And that is a different blog for a different day. 🙂
