But Everyone Else is Getting Married!


So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!” John 21:21-22

Another friend has announced his engagement. As much as you’re happy for your friend you wonder Lord when will it be my turn?

You look around to see that most of your friends and siblings are married and wonder why am I not married? Why have they got married and not me? what about them? why them? why?

But God is saying “What is that to you? You follow me!”

Comparing your life to anyone else’s is not wise.

Measuring your life’s timeline up against someone else’s is folly.

Because before you were formed in your mother’s womb God knew you and predestined you, God has a specific unique bespoke plan for your life.

Your own time will come if you believe, follow Jesus, follow His word and do what He has told you to do.

You may not understand it now; why you’ve had to wait longer, but faith is trusting God when we don’t know the “why“s and knowing when the time is right, all will be revealed and you will be glad that you chose to follow Jesus.
