I would like to talk about singleness. I would like to talk about it because I am single. I also understand that singleness is a season God has appointed. He created marriage but He also created singleness. Singleness is not something that just happens because nothing else is happening in your life. God actually created singleness for a reason. There are things He has for you in this season that you can only do in this season. There are things you won’t be able to do when you married that you can do now.
I am writing about singleness because I have a friend who finds himself in a place where all his close friends are courting. He is the only one who is single and for him it is a challenge. When he does something with his friends he is the odd one out. I can relate to him. I had felt like that a few times until God showed me that singleness was something to be taken seriously. A lot of people are in that same situation. But what can you do about it?
Searching for someone to date is not the answer but understanding that God has created singleness will help.
Don’t despise your season of singleness. Embrace your season of singleness. It is not a curse so don’t look at it like that.
There are specific things God wants to teach you and accomplish through you in this season. Please understand every season you go through in life has challenges. Singleness has its fair amount of challenges to overcome as well.
But be guaranteed that those challenges are preparing you for the next season of your life – marriage.
I can’t wait for the time I meet the One God has for me. It will be a glorious and magical time. A time that only God could create. But until then, I will learn and grow in my season of singleness. God created singleness then He created marriage. And everything He creates is GOOD!
God created Adam. When He created him, He gave him a job. He was to look after the garden. He also had to name the animals and for a season that was good.
But there came a time after that when God saw Adam and said it was not good for him to be alone.
“Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficent, satisfactory) that man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him. Genesis 2:18
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24
Henceforth another season had been created – marriage.
But God didn’t create the season of marriage before singleness. Singleness came first.
In that season God gave him a job – “And the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and guard and keep it”. Genesis 2:15
Don’t despise your season of singleness. It is an amazing time that God has created for a purpose.
There are blessings in this season that you can’t get when you married.
Ask God to show you what He has for you in this season,
In this season called Singleness!
