I think it’s funny that this came up last for two reasons: 1. it’s just the perfect way to end this series, and 2. it just happens to be the day before Valentine’s Day which means I need to yell at the single women again LOL. I swear I did not plan this, but this is the order I wrote them in TWO days ago lol 🙂 Anyhoo!
We all know what waiting actively is! Waiting actively is how you should wait patiently. Just because you’re trying to be patient doesn’t mean you sit around and try to keep a good disposition until it happens. Waiting patiently needs that you need to move, act, occupy your time while you wait. After all, it’s kinda hard to be patient if all you’re doing is sitting around trying NOT to think about the thing you’re trying to be patient about. So, single women (and don’t forget I’m numbered with you!), while you’re waiting on Mr. Wonderful to come and sweep you off your feet…DO SOMETHING! Enhance your own life some kind of way. He doesn’t want some ol’ desperate, uneducated, clingy, “whatever you like,” broad that has no life and nothing going on! Go to school! Join a ministry! Find a hobby! Help some kids! Exercise! Go out with your friends! Feed the homeless! FIND SOMETHING TO DO!!! Amen 🙂
II Peter 3:14 (NLT)
And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight.
Jude 1:21 (MSG)
But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God’s love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life!
I hope you all have enjoyed this series! More importantly I hope someone out there found it useful. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Happy Valentine’s day!
