Question: Is it possible to be a single, Christian woman and be content?
Yes, it’s possible.
I can imagine you’re reading this and rolling your eyes. Wait a minute, I’ll explain. My life is a living testimony.
Honestly, I’ve not always been like this and it is not because I don’t want to get married one day. If you know me personally, you’ll know how much I value marriage but I’ve refused to let my emotions and desires to get married control me. I’m too engaged living my life and walking in the path that Christ called me.
You see, 5 years ago, I was in the ‘panic zone’ looking over my shoulders wondering if any Christian guy that’s asking me out is my husband. Truth be told; I wasn’t content with my life. A lot was going on and marriage felt like my escape ticket. I almost ruined this precious and “short-term” season in my life working myself up about marriage. God helped me to see that while He’s busy writing my love story I needed to get engaged doing something besides waiting for my “future spouse” to cross my path.
Beloved, God will show you the PURPOSE and the REASON for your existence, if you let Him. He has things for you to do, amazing people for you to meet, and places for you to go NOW! Not 5 years from now but NOW! Start serving and God will show you new gifts you don’t even know you have and you’ll be amazed at how different your life will be.
However, this will not all happen by chance. You’ll have to seek for God’s guidance and direction and make up your mind to maximize your single season.
Contentment is possible. So while you wait, prepare yourself by learning how to submit to God FIRST and make Him a priority. Even after you do get married your relationship with God must still come FIRST.
My advice; You need to fully recognize that the man God has prepared for you is supposed to move you closer to Him and never for you to replace Him with the man. God must always remain NUMBER ONE.
A great passage in the Bible about singleness is found in 1 Corinthians 7:32-35.
Jesus loves you more than anyone in this world.
