“I returned and saw under the sun that—
The race is not to the swift,
Nor the battle to the strong,
Nor bread to the wise,
Nor riches to men of understanding,
Nor favor to men of skill;
But time and chance happen to them all.” Ecclesiastes 9:11 (NKJV)
Will I ever get married? Will he ever propose to me? Am I marriage material? Am I loveable?
These are questions you can begin to ask when you have been single for so long, you keep breaking up or seeing everyone around you get married except you!
This can lead to you trying to find the reasons and in the process kill your self-esteem but the verse above says time and chance (or opportunity) happens to all.
It’s not the fastest person that always wins the race or it’s not always the most beautiful size 0 woman who gets the man.
It’s not always the strong warrior who wins the battle or it’s not always the richest man who gets the girl! Time and opportunity happens to us all.
If you ever find yourself asking am I really marriage material? The answer is simple.
Time and Chance.
