2. Don’t believe the enemy’s lies
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. – Philippians 4:11
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to get married, as long as you don’t want it more than you want God. Because, there is a difference between having a healthy desire for a spouse and being consumed by the desire of having a spouse.
When you have a healthy desire, you are in God’s will for your life. He created and ordained marriage for multiple reasons. You may not like being single, but you haven’t allowed those desires to stop you from living a healthy, happy, productive life.
You’re still dreaming, hoping, praying and trusting. But you’re satisfied being where God has placed you in this season of life.
Be careful not to let mixed messages from well-intended Christians, who don’t remember what it’s like to be single, make you feel like you’re less than a Christian for desiring a spouse. Even though others may look down on your desire, God does not judge you for having it.
You’re not wrong for wanting to get married. You’re human and that’s the way God made you.
