Hey Single People

by Danita Harris

Thank God I'm single! I'm happy to be saved and single. Singleness affords you the time to stay focused on the things of God and to develop a closer relationship with your Lord, Jesus Christ. To all of my "saved & single" brothers and sisters, who are reading this right now, I wrote this poem to encourage you in your walk with the Lord. God Bless You!

Hey Single People

Being single this long was not in your plan
You were hoping and praying that by now God would have hooked you up with your woman or your man
Where is she? Where is he? You consistently ask
And the father says before I join you to another you must take off your mask
No more hiding, shucking and jiving it's time to get real
You see because everything isn't always about how you feel
You can't unite and try to become one
Until you look at yourself and ask Lord what needs to be done
Then prepare yourself for the answer because the words may not be so easy to hear
You're so busy looking for the right one you've conveniently neglected to check yourself my dear
You see the skeletons in your closet won't stay silent forever
And by holding on to the pain from your past-hope for your future is what you sever
Are you living your life the way God is telling you to
Or do you only plug-in to the kingdom when the object of your affection no longer says, "I love you"
When you get tired of the game, you'll take off your mask
Being single affords you the time to perform this costly task
Oh yeah, it will cost you, but the reward is great
Once God develops your character, He'll begin preparing you for your mate
So before you adopt the "I'm all that and a bag of chips"
I suggest you do some "in-house" cleaning and that's on the real tip
A knight in shining armor wants a woman who is together
The way she handles her finances, her mental stability, her relationship with God cannot be summed up with "whatever"
And a Queen wants her King to be worthy of the throne
He is God fearing, spirit filled, loving and obedient
He's a man who desires a Godly woman to call his own
So be of good courage, have faith and wait
God knows the desires of your heart, just trust Him
He won't be late
Your singleness season is a time for you to grow
