Many times Christian singles have a rough time just maneuvering through the relationship part of life. I for one think that it shouldn’t be rough at all especially if God is a top priority. Below is some good advice for singles about meeting that special someone you dream of.
Feeling guilty for wanting to be with someone.
You must realize that it’s not a sin to want to be in a relationship. The desire to want to be loved and taken care of is normal. It isn’t healthy to put pressure on yourself to be with someone, as this can cause you to rush into the wrong relationship. Try and work through the rush and the overwhelming emotions lest you fall into the trap of: “ the first person to come is the first one to take”.
God’s plans for marriage and singleness.
Marriage is God’s plan, it was designed by God. Yes it is true that Paul teaches that it is better for a man to remain single so he can focus on serving God but for most of us and with so much pressure to be with someone (especially from our churches), it isn’t easy.
Leaving it to God to “drop” that special someone into your lap isn’t the way, either (we have to make ourselves available). The Bible tells us: Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4
We should pray for our heart’s desire, in His Will.
If this is God’s plan for us, the right person will come into our lives at the right time, as God has perfect timing . Also, be sure of this: Don’t give deadlines to God, as He doesn’t work that way. He wants the best for you and giving Him a deadline will just disappoint you.
