In almost everything you want to find balance.
Whether it’s not overeating yet still enjoying your favorite foods every once in a while balanced with regular exercise or physical activity, maintaining a budget while still enjoying life and “fun time” at the same time, or even as a single believer, you want to find balance in this area as well.
You don’t want to be stuck on either side of the scale:
Side A where your every waking moment is consumed with thoughts of, “Lord when will I get married? Where is he, Lord? Why am I not married yet?”
Or Side B where you don’t think about marriage at all and have resolved in your mind the fact that your being married, which was a desire of yours
long ago, may never come to pass.
It’s okay to have a desire for marriage, as long as that desire doesn’t have YOU.
Instead, you want to maintain a nice balance and enjoy life now, as a single believer, and be content knowing that your desire for a mate will be met in
Instead of getting stuck on one side where your desire turns into a care, you want to instead cast that care on God, leave it in His hands and as the
saying goes, “Let God do it.”
Instead of giving up hope, which is the fuel which causes a Christian to continue on in the things of God, you want to continue in hope, knowing that
God loves you enough not to leave or forsake you in this area.
So stay in the middle, and maintain a nice balance as you wait on God with joy knowing:
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7
And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. (Psalm 9:10)
