Here’s a little reflection of what singleness has taught me.
I’d never regret my last six years of singleness, instead I grant it as extremely precious.
God used this little metaphor-story to show me what it really means to be single. This story helped me to embrace my current season. I hope that it will do the same for you...
How most single girls feel
There was this girl on a train station. She was waiting for the train to come, but seemed to wait for a really long time. People would show up on the station, get on a train and off they go. For her, this was not the case. When a train would enter the station, she would jump up and be ready to go, only to watch the train pass straight trough without even stopping.
At the very core of every girl’s heart is the desire to be fought for and pursued. This is the very reason little girls dream about being princesses. Apart from being able to twirl around in a beautiful dress, princesses are beautiful, worthy and adored. This is acknowledged by a prince who is willing to fight a fire-breathing dragon, in order to rescue her on his white horse. And how could any fairytale be complete without the lovely young couple living happily ever after?
Many women have given up on this dream along the way. Most of us have met a decent man and hoped he’d make a good prince, only to watch him run at the first sign of the dragon. Some of us have attempted to slay the dragon ourselves, in order to make the quest for our hearts a little bit more presentable. Some of us have settled for less than the prince we hoped for. Most of us have compromised the dream.
