At some point, we have all desired to be in a relationship and be in love. But being single should be celebrated because you have the ability to do whatever you want with your life and put yourself first. Being single does not mean that you aren’t loved nor does it mean that you are incomplete.
If you are feeling down about being single and want help to become happy and take full advantage of this season in your life; here are three things that helped me to enjoy my single season.
Be a better you.
“A woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and spirit.” 1 Cor. 7:34
Take your singleness as a valuable moment to learn who God created you to be. I always say that it is great to date yourself, figure out what you like and don’t like. Go after God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Taking this time to truly know you will benefit your future relationship. It is important to not allow your loneliness to blind you; putting you in a temporary satisfaction situation that could hinder what God is doing in your single season. Look at your time being single as an opportunity to do whatever you want without having to worry about someone else’s thoughts and opinions.
Past hurt is something that a lot of people push on the backburner and it ends up being a major issue in a new relationship. While you are in your single season, forgive those who hurt you and forgive yourself. Break soul-ties and free yourself from anything that has been holding you back. You want to go into a new relationship knowing that your partner is getting a renewed and positive you.
Have peace within your heart to know that God already planned everything out. He already created you for someone. Having the mindset of knowing that God has already set the date, location, and time for you both to meet. Knowing that alone should release any pressure you put on yourself.
So enjoy and love the given time you have by yourself!
