The Single Girl Diaries-Freak Out


Ever have those moments where you kind of freak yourself out about being single?

"Oh my gosh, I am the only one in my group of friends who is single."
"My friends aren't just getting married anymore...they're having babies."
"I am {:insert your age here:} and still not married. I'm not just not married, I am not dating, and there isn't even a guy on the radar."
"I am going to live the life of 27 Dresses."

Sound familiar? I only thought of all of those things because I have said them all at least once {:once is definitely lowballing the number:}. Being single isn't a cake walk, but it doesn't have to be a source of anxiety or pain.

Think about it. Do you honestly think God is up in heaven pacing right now and FREAKING OUT right now thinking:
"Oh-em-gee! Amber is 26 and still single. I never saw that coming. What am I going to do? WHere am I going to find her husband at? Call in the angels we have to have a meeting about this ASAP!"
No He absolutely isn't, so why should I? And why should you for that matter?

Today I read a quote in my devotional by Henri Nouwen: "Make the conscious choice to move the attention of your anxious heart away from the waves and direct it to the One who walks on them and says 'It's me. Don't be afraid'."

Meditate on that today and in your quiet time read about David as he prepares to fight Goliath in 1 Samuel 17:31-40

Also if you are looking for prayer about singleness or anything for that matter, I would love to pray along side of you and believe with you. Just shoot me an e-mail at aemiller16@aol.com
