Singles, Here's How to Let Go of those 'Married-With-Children' Dreams

As a child, I developed a fantasy of being married with children. I kept this with me up until now. This is my season for deliverance. In my head, I thought I could create such a life for myself. I thought it would make me happy and fulfill many voids.

Throughout my journey with God, my experience has been a lot of peeling away layers of disappointments, hurt and pain. I often wondered why God wouldn't just cut it all out of me in one setting. If I knew how to get to it, I would have cut it out myself. Yet, I'm still standing, trusting God for my complete deliverance.

God wants to fill my voids. He wants to be my everything. He wants to get all of the glory in every area of my life. I had to come to the end of my desires and surrender them all to God. What desires have you placed before God?

Every day, when I think of loneliness, I surrender it to God. Anything I have concerns about, I have learned to surrender it to God. I have chosen not to place anything of me before God. It is not always easy. The battle with your flesh is real. I understand this completely. The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy, but God gave us Jesus so we would have life (see John 10:10).

There is nothing we can or have gone through Jesus has not conquered (1 Cor. 15:55-57). Whom the Son has set free is free indeed (John 8:36). So whenever loneliness or fear of being alone comes knocking at my thoughts. I fight! I have chosen to run to Jesus and not stand there in the devil's lies. I believe God. I want to walk fulfilled with His glory. Maybe today you have been challenged by God to let go?

Take it from me, He won't force you, but He will continue to love on you until you give in. His Word over your life will not return to Him void (Isa. 56:11).

He will complete the good work He has started in you (see Phil. 1:6).
