Topic: The Beauty of Singlehood

“I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:” – 1 Corinthians 7:32

When I was still single, there were some of my colleagues whose only aim in life was to be married. They saw marriage as an achievement, thus made it their priority. Nothing else had meaning or was attractive to them except marriage. For this reason they failed to develop themselves in other areas of life. They had completely misplaced priorities and as a result, they don’t have much to show for it now.

Life is much more than marriage. In fact, it is important to get your bearing in life as a single because at this time, it is much easier to be focused. As singles, you must understand that God seeks a closer and more intimate relationship with you. This closeness is the bedrock of your future. Personally, I have found out that the closer you are to God, the more you see the need to draw yet closer to Him.

Also, while single, your strength seems to be at its peak; this is why it is the best time to discover self and your purpose on this earth. You have to be careful at this stage because it is the time that many get “lost”. You have the opportunity to accomplish personal goals, develop skills, and make life- altering decisions.

It is the time you have the most freedom to serve God with all of your being- spirit, soul, and body. You don’t have to give yourself emotionally and physically to another man but wholeheartedly to God. You can be involved in as many Christian activities: fastings, fellowships, seminars, help ministries, etc. The truth is, if you cannot serve God while you are single, it will be difficult to do so when you are married because of the various marital responsibilities. Therefore, do not spend your single years wishing and waiting to be married, make it count so you can make impact that will last for generations.

Remain blessed!
