Celebrating Singleness

Often times we as single saints are guilty of spending a vast amount of time wondering and praying to our Father to send us a mate so that we may marry. But I say to those single folk, stop, stop asking God for that mate for He knows the condition of your heart. Instead ask Him what is it you can do for Him until He sends the person He wants you to have. Ask Him to use you for the ongoing of His Kingdom, just say, “Use me Lord, until You use me up!!!”

There is much for a single person to do, to give our lives over to our Father. To receive all He wants us to receive, the callings and the gifts that He has for us. For us to say yes to all He wants us to do and all He wants us to receive and all that He has for us is right there, without worrying about how our mate (if we were married) would feel or react. Being able to run to Him and not to man or woman for anything is a beautiful thing to do.

To place God first in our lives is more than praying and worshipping. It is a matter of turning all of us over to Him. It is throwing open every door and allowing the Holy Spirit to come in and dwell. I know you are saying married folk can do the same thing and they can, to a certain point. But, it is us single folk that have the advantage of getting closer to God and doing more for Him than a married person can. Sure, some of us have children, but the amazing thing about that is if God wants us to relocate and provides the when, how, what and why and we present it to our child(ren) using the Words our Father gives us, children and teens are more resilient that we can ever imagine. We (adults) are pretty much the ones that are hesitant to make that step for we are “afraid” of the unknown. “Afraid” of stepping out there, not knowing what is going to happen. “Afraid”, we may not know anyone. That is our time to learn to trust our Father, who has already made a way for us long before He let us know there was anything He wanted us to do.

So I say to all the singles out there, focus on all our Father has for you. Focus on all He wants you to be doing. Focus on all He wants to give you, for if we spend all our time doing, learning and saying all our Father wants us to, there will be less time for us to get into stuff we have no business to get into.

Are there any out there up to the challenge?

If so, let us run on and see all our Father has in store for us.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
