Have you ever thought that you’ll be single forever? If you haven’t, think about it. Just kidding, don’t do that, it’s a waste of time.
So many of my friends are either in relationships or getting married and I’m just here. Like way out here, if you know what I mean.
There are times that I feel glad that I’m not in a relationship because I see how it is with other couples. But then again I feel as though that would be better than being alone?
But again I don’t really know.
Some of us have never been in an actual relationship and would prefer one even if it came with a breakup, as long as it means they won’t be alone. We get to the point were we start to think that singleness is what we’ll just have to settle for.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re the person who desperately wants to be in a relationship or someone who is just tired of it, you shouldn’t ever have settle. That isn’t what God would want you to do.
God wants us to be successful in relationships.
God wants us to keep trying.
When you settle for singleness, you are saying that God CAN’T find someone who would be good for you.
Umm, what God are you talking about? My God, the God of the Bible, has the power to do the impossible. So for Him to find someone who would be good for us, is not a difficult task. Though sometimes, like many many times, we tend to forget. We forget that we serve a God who can do the impossible.
Do you trust God enough to know that He has a plan for your singleness, that there IS a purpose behind it?
Many of us today have it backwards. We see marriage as the goals and think of singleness as something we have to survive.
Singleness is not a curse, it’s a BLESSING!
When we are single, we don’t have to worry about anyone else. We have some much free time to ourselves. That free time is what is key in singleness.
What do you do with that free time?
A lot of us are single so that we can utilize that time to focus on God and grow in our relationship with Him. When we spend all of our time focusing on surviving singleness, we miss the point of it. Honestly you may even prolong it.
This is the time for you to realize that that void you feel inside can only be filled by one person. That person is God. Not the relationship you so desperately want.
The relationship you’re really looking for it the one between you and God, not between you and another human being. That relationship will come later when you’re ready.
Think about it, when you’re in a relationship, you don’t have as much free time as you use too. You spend that time going out with your significant other, thus meaning you don’t really have as much free time to spend with God.
Relationships are not a bad thing if you enter one with your priorities straight. If you get into a relationship just so you won’t have to be single anymore, God will intervene and that might lead to a breakup.
What we fail to understand is that God is not against us being in a relationship. HE’S ACTUALLY ALL FOR IT. He wants our relationships to work, but first He has to prepare us for them.
God can only prepare us when He fully has our attention, when you’re single.
Our singleness isn’t a period of our life that we need to survive. It’s a time to grow. It a time to learn. It a time we need to cherish because when it’s gone, you need to apply all the things you learned to your relationships.
In a relationships, you both have to put in effort and both be ready to be in one, because if one of you is ready and the other isn’t; your relationship isn’t going to go anywhere.
