Don’t Waste Your Singleness

Most of us have all being single at some point in our life. Joining your friends as the third wheel or fifth wheel etc. ,the feeling of loneliness begins to creep in and for some of us we feel like the clock is ticking and we are still single. God has placed so many desires in our hearts and the desire to get married is one of them hence its not bad to have that desire. Don’t feel anxious or feel depressed when you are single, its actually not worth it. Remember, the bible tells us in Philippians 4 verse 6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. I was once like that. Single-hood made me feel quite lonely sometimes and I felt like I needed to be with someone and settle down when am still young. Sometimes we think we have fallen for the man or woman whom we think is “the one”, and when the relationship hits rock bottom and terminates, the cycle begins all over again. We start to despair, hook up with rebounds and randoms. My friend, its not worth it. I have come to realize that all of us who are guilty of such have been wasting our single hood. Gods timing is the best, so like I mentioned earlier in Philippians 4;6, stop being anxious. Those are thoughts brought by the devil and not God, for all that comes from God is good, for in John 10:10 we see that the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. God gives us life and he gives it abundantly so lets not waste our lives by worrying on what God has already planned for us. Its not just a matter o surrendering all to God, but you have to accomplish a requirement. Mathew 6:33,But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Do not despise this season for preparation, use your time to spend with God. The moment you do that, am telling you, you will not feel the loneliness or start comparing yourself with your friends who are hitched, married etc. I like what 1 Corinthians verse 7 says about single-hood;just an excerpt- An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.

In short, use your single hood to give undivided attention to God. Its so worth it, you will be surprised.
