Singleness is a Blessing

896 views

Published on

It's important that we understand God's amazing single design regarding our blessed singleness. We love to crack jokes about love and talk about it. Marriage has sometimes been a pursuit in life, but it is not just a means to an end in this single life.

We cannot get too caught up in Marriage. Yes, it is important but there are also other concerns we need to deal with ourselves. That's why it's important for us to establish a good foundation first regarding our singleness.

Being single happens only once whether it's just a permanent or temporary state. It happens very fast and it happens to be a gift as well. Singleness is a Blessing.

For the majority, they will get married and it's important to prepare for the journey towards that chapter. But for certain individuals God might have really blessed them to remain single
