If you go by the latest reports concerning single women (single black women in particular), according to them, your chances of getting married are slim to none. As you go along in your single journey, it's important that you keep your eyes focused on the One who has known the story of your love life before you were even created. The statistics are not God. The reports are not God. Even the close girlfriends you may hang out with who believe the statistics and reports are not God. If you are allowing anything other than what God says to be the final authority over your future married life, it's time to let it go. Here are some things that may help:

  • Stop reading and BELIEVING the reports and statistics or any other "source" that contradicts your desire to be married. (Isaiah 55:9)
  • Let God's Word be your anchor. (Jeremiah 29:11, Proverbs 3:5)
  • Read things that uplift marriage and good men (yes, they are out there). >>>Your future husband is looking for you. (Proverbs 18:22)
  • Be mindful of the company you keep. (Psalm 1: 1-3)
Stay encouraged as you go along this journey. It's not always easy waiting or even believing God for your future husband, but as long as He's put that desire on your heart or made that promise to you, your love story is already signed, sealed, and delivered no matter what anyone says. BELIEVE IT.

Have a safe and happy weekend.

The Future Wife,


  1. Great post and I love the concept of your blog

  2. Though you posted this many months ago, the information is timeless. The media bombards single women (especially black single women) with stats that say the majority of us will never get married. I am glad that there are others that KNOW that God knows the desires of our hearts and our faith lies in Him and not in what the world may lead us to believe. Love your blog!
