So, it’s Valentine’s Day, or as I like to call it, Single’s Awareness Day. As always, I am single as heck on Valentine’s Day, and I have to wade through ridiculous amounts of sappy couple posts. You know the type: “So grateful for this girl. #blessed”; “This man is my favorite. #love”; and so on and so forth.
Anyway, this year, I found myself getting a little bitter. Why don’t I have a boyfriend? How can she get a man and I can’t? Why does everyone have somebody except me? I was thinking about this and getting kind of upset, and then I remembered a phrase that I’ve seen quite a lot recently:
And if not, He is still good.
And it hit me like a truck.
He never promised me a man. Nowhere in the Bible did He say, “Delight thyself also in the Lord, and thou shalt get a significant other.” He doesn’t owe me anything. He’s already done so much more than I deserve. But more than that, I can be happy as a single because I serve a good God. He is always good, all the time. He’s good if I win the lottery tomorrow. He’s good if I die tomorrow. He is always good, even if I’m single.
Maybe someday I will find someone to grow old with. But if not, He is still good.
