Being Esther

1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Esther 2:12-13
Before a young woman’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics. [13] And this is how she would go to the king: Anything she wanted was given her to take with her from the harem to the king’s palace.
A precious time to cultivate beauty to make an investment in strengthening virtues and build character.
A precious time between the awakening of desire in a young woman’s heart to share her life with a man to the moment she walks down the aisle to be married to the perfect man that God destined.
For many it’s a time where they just sit on a bench and wait till life passes by them
They don’t realise they are wasting the most important time of their lives, they are robbing themselves of great blessing and reward.
They are robbing their future husbands of more virtuous woman.
They are robbing God of a servant through whom He desires to do great things.
Esther prepared herself for 12 months.A woman must be prepared before she embarks on one of the most important and difficult callings in life-Marriage and Motherhood.
Esther had to let herself bloom from a young lady to a woman , to a queen before she could wear the title and fulfill the role.
We, young Christian women need to know the ways of our Kingdom ie Kingdom of God.. before we unite with the one God is preparing for us.
We must be prepared intellectually, emotionally and spiritually by God himself by His Word, His spirit and other godly woman.
Singleness is not a waste of time, but a time that God sets aside especially for a woman to mould her the way HE wants her to be.
Will use her in a certain way that might be impossible after marriage.
Singleness is a time in which she cultivates the virtues, character a woman of God must have.
So she can offer herself to her future husband and the world something more than a pretty face or body.
Best part is that your husband is also passing through the same thing… 🙂
It would cut a bad image , if your husband has been preparing and you haven’t let God mould you.
That special someone who is “JUST PERFECT” for you , has been CAREFULLYAND THOUGHTFULLY designed by God to be united as one as you. 🙂
It’s an awesome joy for her to look back on how God had enabled her to wait on Him and HE was faithful to bless.
Her only desire was to trust in God and wait upon him.
One of the greatest lie is single woman should be dating or looking for someone in a mall.
We should never be looking for a man of our choice but should be waiting for a man of God’s choice.
And when he comes it will not be past experiences from past relationships but chastity, purity and godliness.
God  knows exactly what we need and the desires of our heart better than we do !!!!! 🙂
He does not want you to be looking for your husband .He wants to bring him to you,A time or place least expected.
Two reasons why someone is desperately need someone..
1. They don’t know God as they should know,a God of comfort .
2. Selfish life.
Marriage cannot fulfill the emptiness we have …,only God can!
Marriage is not an opportunity to have our selfish needs and our desires met but an opportunity to meet others needs.
If we don’t learn to take our needs to God., We will overwhelm our man… We would be so absorbed and lamenting on our needs and fail to hear him out.
Being single is special and enjoyable time with God, a time to discover who we are in Christ and grow in his likeness.
It’s magical and has a beauty of its own.
My beloved sister in Christ be demanding and not to settle for anything less than perfect will of God.
This time is precious where God makes you beautiful on the inside and out. !! 🙂

In Christ,
Lincy Hepsiba.
