The power of singleness

To all of the singles of the world I will lead off by saying “to all things there is a season and a specific time.” Relax, you’re not behind and you’re not going to miss anything that is assigned for your life if you tap into God and His purpose and intent for your existence. You may not have all of the details, but get a clue! This is apart of what I believe singleness is for. As a single myself, I was guilty of living fast and looking too far ahead. You know what I mean. Kind of like, putting the cart before the horse, or like rushing out to buy furniture without a home to put it in. I liken those scenarios to any single person that’s seriously pressing to enter a relationship without having a clue of who you are or why you are?“ And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being. The lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man He hadformed formed.” Genesis 2:7-8 Form: To fashion, shape, cultivate or develop into: something. God started with the singled in Genesis. Before Eve a appeared it was just Adam. He was the first single God personally formed. Much like Adam, I believe God desires our singleness to be a time of personal development and self-discovery. He desires to form you and plant you into something that brings significance and value to your life while positively impacting others. Don’t be guilty of waiting for someone to complete you and make you whole.Wholeness and completeness should be settled during our singleness. Coming into relationship with God through Christ iswhat activates mankind for the revelation of purposes which cause the faith and hope in us to come alive. Eve didn’t bring Adam wholeness. She brought him partnership in the fulfilment of purpose, support, fellowship, and accountability. His identity was already complete. Before Adam met Eve he tapped into God and His purpose and intent for his life. It’s my intent to enlighten any single that truly desires to live a fruitful and progressive life. If that is you I challenge to look at your singleness a little different.
