Trusting God with your future
The following quote in wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarlowGirl from the Barlow sisters caught my attention:
"We believe that God has one perfect man already chosen for us; therefore we have no need to worry ourselves in searching for him. When the time is right, we know God will bring us together. In the mean time, we are not hiding in a closet avoiding all males, we are still living our lives, just without the pressure of having to have a boyfriend."
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 7:32-35 that unmarried life makes it easier for us to focus on the most important thing in life - God.
32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord's affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord's affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.
However if God does choose to provide a husband for each of you (Alyssa, Becca and Lauren), it will all be part of his plan. Whatever happens, have comfort in the knowledge that God is in control, and that He is with you every step of the way, ready to help you up when you fall, with you in every joyful moment, constantly showering blessings on you. There is nothing more comforting than knowing that the creator of the entire universe, and everything in it, cares so deeply for us all that He sent His one and only son Jesus to die on the cross to pay for our sins, our burden that we no longer have to bear on our own.
For you three, and all that are reading this comment, I hope that this serves as a comforting reminder that whether we are single or married there is no better place to put our trust than in God. Whether we are single or married, each has its joys and challenges through which God will guide us.
