4 Things Single Christians Should Know

4. Your singleness does not limit you

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;  a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. – Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There’s a purpose for you being right where you are. So, whether you are happy being single or totally focused on getting married, ask God what’s His purpose for your singleness?

Maybe there are things He wants you to do now that would be a challenge to do when you’re married. Maybe He wants you to get your debt and spending under control. Or maybe He wants you to go back to school, start a business, or start a ministry.

Regardless of the purpose for your singleness, you should be living life to the fullest! Don’t allow this season to rob you of the abundant life that every Christian should have, regardless of their marital status.
