Why The Wait?

You are here

Sometime in 2012

Me: Why am I still single?

God: Silence

Me: Why am I still single? Am I not pretty enough? I am ready for marriage.

God: Silence

Me: Why is she the one getting married? She is my little sister's age, it's not fair! What does she know about marriage that I don't? I've read so many books, I've listened to so many messages. I watch couples and I am making notes, what else do I need to do to show You I am ready?!

God: Silence

February 2014 in a singles prayer meeting

'Let us pray that God in heaven will settle us in the right homes. Homes where we are the answer to someone's prayers' (people start praying in tongues).

Me: Father in heaven, settle me in home You want me in.

God: Baby, do you know why you are still single?

Me: No Daddy but I am sure You are about to tell me.

God: See Your older sister from Mrs so and so?

Me: Yes?

God: See the other one from Mama Femi?

Me: Yes?

God: What is peculiar to both of them?

Me: (slightly confused) I don't know.

God: They are both single mothers.

Me: Right!

God: Well I don't want that for you my darling so I am sorting out that curse in your family. Oh and by the way, see your aunties? Can you see the same trait?

Me: Yes.

God: The ones that are married that don't know Me, what are they in their marriages?

Me: Second wives.

God: See why I am taking my time with you?

Me: Yes daddy I do. Thank you. (Thinking to myself) you see yourself? Aren't you glad you aren't married now? You are always saying you don't want to be like your mum and aunties. God, thank You for keeping me single, I had no clue what You were protecting me from. I will wait for You to finish what You've started. Thank You so much Daddy.
