To be single in this day and age where you are expected to live in a couple’s world as a Christain calls for being different which is very challenging. And it is difficult to be different – but YES you can be happy and thrive fully as a Single.
For most of us, being single we’re left wondering exactly what is God doing with our lives? Why doesn’t He give us what we want? Does He really love us? Why has He blessed most of our friends with the very thing we want? Why has He left us out?
Many Christian Singles face a lot of emotional struggles. They’re lonely. Sometimes they’re jealous. They feel abandoned. They aren’t content, and it seems impossible that they ever could be. Even though there are good days getting involved in their church activities and go to Bible studies, these difficult emotions continue to lurk in the corners and sometimes take over.
Some singles take it harder than others. Many of us are an emotional mess. And we think it’s impossible to feel any differently about being single — to lose the depression, the loneliness, the longing.
