Dear Single in Love,   God is love. We could stop there, but God wants to share a special message with His daughters that are in this season of waiting for their divine purpose mate.   God shared some principles and wisdom for myself and women across the globe about our season of singleness – whether single, single and dating, single and courting, or single and engaged – either way, you are not married; therefore, God sees you as single.   In your season of singleness, God is aware you are ready for love with someone other than God and yourself, but there is some preparation you must endure. Here are 3 of the 8 principles God shared for single women waiting for her purpose mate:   1.      You Are Not Meant To Be Single Forever – God never intended for anyone to be single forever. Look at Adam, “It is not good for the man (Adam) to be alone. I will make a helper (Eve) suitable for him” (Genesis 2: 18). Adam had a season alone before God could bring Eve into his life. You are no different. 2.      Your Best Relationship Should Happen Right Now – We should be embarking and building our relationship with God before we can join forces with another person. Learn to hear and follow God’s instructions before He sends that man into your life. 3.      Start Healing NOW – Healing is an act to identify areas in your life where you were hurt and wounded. The healing process should start with forgiving yourself for choosing to be or stay in relationships you knew God did not ordain. Next, forgive others that hurt you. You were cheated on, lied to, rejected, neglected, or simply abandoned. No matter what happened in those past relationships – forgive them. God knew those relationships were not going to work, but He cannot and will not send your purpose mate if you are holding onto the pain and hurt.   I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ (Isaiah 46:10 NIV) Your relationships were apart of God’s plans, and you have to trust the plan designed for your life. Time to Pray. Listen. Obey. Bio: Tanisha Shanee is a Christ Ambassador, inspirational speaker, podcast host, and author. FHM 7
