“No. There’s another obstacle. I am about to be 40 years old. The Lord has me in this state where He ministered to me years ago. He said, “Take advantage of this state because it’s a gift that I give you.”
“It’s not that being married is not a gift. That is a different gift. But He said, ‘This time that you will be single is a gift that I give you so that you can do for Me what I ask of you. You can give Me your maximum without having to hear your heart, and without having distractions.
“So, I’ve given the best of my 20s and the best of my 30s to the Lord. And I would do it in a heartbeat. I know that the Lord has my prince somewhere. In fact, in one of my albums I wrote him a love song. It is called, ‘I Wait For You.’
But, I know he’s out there somewhere. I’m not in a hurry. I’m just waiting on God’s time.”What is your view of women in ministry?
“I think it’s great. … There is a pro and a con. … I think that women were made by God to be sensitive, to be sensible and to be passionate about everything they do. That is the pro.
“But the pro can be turned into a con. Because women are passionate, women can be emotional. … For me, someone leaving the church is, Ooooh! It’s like they killed me. Because I have that mother’s heart. I’m thinking, ‘Oh, my God, my kids. How are they going to eat? Where are they going to go?’
“Men just see things differently. They react differently. And of course, I’m learning to balance that. … I think that as women of God … we need that Joyce Meyer quality where “I went through all this … I’m strong and I can do this, and I’m invincible, and here we go!’ That kind of thing!”
