Michelle McKinney Hammond: Our Singleness is a Destiny Call
by A Voice of Hope
OUR SINGLENESS IS A DESTINY CALL
Michelle says you got to know that you know that you are dedicated and committed to waiting on God’s choice as well as His timing. While this is easier said than done for most singles, Michelle says singles can walk in that place of contentment.
“You have to proactively decide that you want to be happy single or not,” says Michelle. Every single should decide that they want that because they’re not going to be a happy married person unless they are a happy single person.
You have to be a whole person on your own first. It helps you make better choices. It helps you clarify what you want and what you don’t want, and it helps you not have unrealistic expectations once you do find your mate.
It is important for the single person to “Get a Life.” Michelle says too many single people put their lives on hold waiting for their spouse and idolizing the institution of marriage. The real truth is that there are just as many miserable people married as there are single. So marriage is not the end all. “Marriage should be the inspiration when you meet the right person, that you want to wake up with every day,” says Michelle.
You need to have your act together. Hopefully you will then become what you want to attract. If you have your life together, that dismisses all the people that don’t have their life together. So you need to think about what you want and then become what you want to attract. Michelle states, “I’m waiting on God’s timing for my life. But in the meantime, I’m having a blast.”
Many singles have bought into the idea that there’s something that’s going to make us complete. “I’m only complete if someone else loves me. Jesus loves me. I’m only complete if someone else needs me. Look around…there’s a million people who need you,” says Michelle.
God strategically aligned people in Scripture to reflect Him, to glorify Him, to hold down specific areas and regions. We have to become kingdom minded in every aspect, in every choice that we make. Michelle challenges each person to ask, “Am I glorifying God to the ultimate in the decision that I’m making? How is this helping the kingdom? This is not just about me.”
