Celebrate Your Singleness

Celebrate Your Singleness - Celebrate the New YearSingleness is not a second-hand way of life -  Celebrate your singleness!  Come to terms with being single and learn to appreciate the value of your single life. 
What is God’s view of singleness?
I know for sure that He calls some of us to remain single for a life time and some for a season.  I certainly know that we are His treasured possessions and that we are invaluable to the advancement of His kingdom. How do I know that?  Take a quick look at John the Baptist and Paul, the well-known disciple of Christ.  They both took on the awesome responsibility to exalt either the coming of Christ or His teachings of salvation and the proclamation of His resurrection.  Now, if you can imagine – take away John and Paul.  Personally, I can’t.  Both men were single and without a doubt they were certainly invaluable to the advancement of the kingdom.
Clearly, many of us are not called as John and Paul to live single for a life time.  However, God does provide an abundant life to those who seek to follow Him.  As we wait for the right one to come along, His stamp of approval on our lives oftentimes result from our obedience and sacrifice.  Just as John sacrificed by living in the wilderness and Paul sacrificed by being imprisoned for spreading the gospel - - we may also encounter a measure of sacrifice.
So, if you whine about your singleness, let it go.  Come to the realization that what God has in store for you may not necessarily be about you.  Face it, everything in life is not personalized with your name and initials on it.  Do you love God for what He can do for you or do you love Him because HE IS?  If you choose to submit, your singleness places you in a unique position to be used by God to further the kingdom. Be obedient, God approves of our willingness to accept and receive His divine directions. 
In the Meantime Celebrate! 
Learn to celebrate your single life and embrace the joys of singleness.  Celebrating your singleness doesn’t mean that you have embraced it as an end result.  But rather, it means that you have a renewed understanding of your life as a Christian single.  Wherever you are in your singleness - never married, divorced, widowed, or a single parent – Celebrate!
For Starters, May I Suggest Cleansing -
•Strive to serve God – it pleases Him.
•Forgive others.  Meditate on Matthew 5:24 and 18:21-35.
•Forgive yourself.  Meditate on Hebrew 10:16-23. Receive God’s forgiving mercy.
•Make a health pack between you and the Lord.  Focus on a health concern or focus on maintaining good health; develop a plan and stick to it.
•Get smart with your finances!  Look at your spending patterns – work on redirecting and eliminating bad spending habits. 
•With a sincere heart, focus on others and devote time to a person in need.
•Define or redefine your passion.  What is it that you love?  Embrace it.
•And finally, make special plans for yourself.
Above all my brothers and sisters,
embrace God’s intentions. 
Be patient in your singleness!  Patience leads to a new understanding of what God expects of His precious treasures.

I do trust all of the concepts you have offered to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Thanks so much for writing. The articles are actually meant to be quick reads, much like our daily bread pamphlets that offer us inspiration as it is read each day. Are you new to the faith? If so, should you have any questions or need me to further expound upon a subject, please let me know. As a matter of interest, I am in the process of writing a series of e-books that will further delve into the subjects at hand and I am certain will be of interest to my readers. I look forward to hearing from you again. Many blessings.
