As a singleton, I've heard over and over that I need to be ok with being single. "If you get comfortable with who you are, then Mr. Right will come along". "You need to be content in your singleness, that's when it happened for me" I'm not a big fan of these statements, not because I think they are false, but because the people stating them are not me. I understand the concept but my story is not your story and just because things worked out that way for you doesn't mean it will for me.
I was talking with my counselor the other day and she mentioned how she had to die to the idea of marriage as a single person and as a wife. We tend to put marriage on a pedestal and then we fall off and are bruised. There is a lot of recovery time. Some days it is painful to let go of desires and entrust Christ.
Whether your single or married--I think this verse in Psalm is a prayer that God will honor. Its not every day that I can honestly say I want Him more than anything else in the world, but I can say that almost every day I have the want to want Him more than anything.
Teach me your way, O LORD,
and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.
