So how did I get to my new perspective on singleness? I started to literally think of singleness as being a beautiful wrapped package, with a beautiful bow on it given to me my God. And when I open the gift, what I found was the freedom to know who God is, and as I developed a closer relationship with Him, God began to show me myself.
Me, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly… God began to take me through the process of truly healing. Sometimes when we get hurt in life, we want to put a Band-Aid on an open wound, cover it up and forget about it. However, with God that’s not always the case. God begin to show me that if I didn’t deal with the root of the problems, the root of the areas in my life that hurt, I could never truly heal. And without true healing, I would be good for no one. No longer would I be allowed to enter into a relationship, and cripple someone else with my pain. It’s a journey. One that I am proud to say I’m still on.
Everyday I learn something new about myself, and the destiny that God has for me. In fact brother Paul, advises a woman who is single to spend her time with God and in the service of others. These two things are actually very important because they prepare you for marriage. Ironic, how can spending time with God and serving others actually serve as a mean for marriage one day? Well, if you want a successful marriage you’re going to have to put God first in it, and secondly a big part of marriage is putting yourself aside to serve someone else. So, with reading this what is your perspective on being single? Do you still see it as a gift or a curse?
I Corinthians 7 :34
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.
