[CF Devotionals] 2009-05-04 - Surviving Singlehood

1 Corinthians 7:26-37

Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are. (1 Corinthians 7:26)

It all starts with a desire, the desire to be married or unmarried. Every person has the same two choices: to be single or to be married. Regardless of one's marital status, every person should be free of worry, and should do what will help you serve the Lord the best, with the least distractions.

If you are on the road of singleness, it's wise to trust God as the navigator, instead of resenting your current marital status. Perhaps the reason for being single is not to show how independent you can be, but rather how obedient you can be during the waiting period.

One's marital status doesn't define them. There comes a time when a person has to stop wondering when their path will cross with their future spouse's. It's best to abandon your own agenda for God's. The Lord knows everything about us. He has watched our steps, and has a grand future in store for each of us.

Lord, I pray that I can enjoy my life and see all the positive things around me. May I see this time as a season of preparation, preparing me to be the spouse You designed me to be. Thank You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
