I hope this message meets you well.
As is my usual way of doing, I am back with another post. Today, I want to talk about the single years. The single years are the years where you are not yet married. My hope and faith is that every one of you who is looking for love would find a suitable and Godly partner to marry, and soon. However, in the meantime, what should you be doing while you are waiting on God to send you your kingdom spouse? You should be immersed in the work of the Lord. You see, life gets busier after marriage, you have to be present and committed to your partner, at some point, you have to be committed to your children as well. Being committed does not mean simply being present, it means also trying your best to make sure you can provide your children with the best resources and a comfortable lifestyle. Indeed, it is an added layer of responsibility. However, now in your single years, you do not have that added layer of responsibility. Now is the time to serve God fiercely and be all about your Father in Heaven’s business. Be involved with ministry work, learn a lot about God, spend time in his presence, etc. When you do get married, you still have to spend time with God and be a righteous Christian, however, with the added responsibilities you have, sometimes, your family becomes your ministry. Sometimes a strong woman of God might decide that her next line of action is to focus not on outreach work but on her children and on raising them to become God-fearing adults. A door-to-door evangelist might decide to become an online evangelist when they have children, so that they can stay at home with their children more often. Yes, married people believe in God, but they do factor in their responsibilities as well. Trust me, when you are married (which you would be, by the Grace of God), you would look back at the single years and say “wow, we were so free then“. I have seen many single people who are pre-occupied with worrying about who they will marry, what their wedding will be like etc. However, that time will come, for now, focus on God and enjoy this moment.
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:32-34
32 I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord’s work and thinking how to please him. 33 But a married man has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. 34 His interests are divided. In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.
