The unmarried man [woman] is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:32

Living single can be a blessing or a curse depending on the perspective of the individual. It’s a blessing to those who search and find contentment even though their heart desires to be married one day. It’s a curse to those who make finding a partner in marriage the main focus of their lives—always searching, but never finding the right one.

Living as a single in a couple’s world can sometimes be different, but not strange, alone, but not lonely and hopeful, but not desperate. Gaining the broader perspective of God’s love for each of us leads to a place of peace and contentment. In our season of singleness, we may discover new gifts and talents that we didn’t know about ourselves. We also can experience the deeper and intense presence of God without interruption nor interference. Our perspective changes from solely finding a spouse to meet our needs and desires to discovering a partner in the building of God’s kingdom.

Living as a single man or woman in our culture of sexual immorality and uncleanliness can be daunting on our own. We aren’t supposed to live in isolation from the body of Christ. Instead, we are to be involved in ministry and serving others as the Spirit leads us. Our time is precious and we learn to fill it with meaningful conversations, deeper reflections of purpose, and expectations of eternal rewards.

Not everyone who’s single wants to be married—and this is their choice and place of peace. Living single should be a time of discovery and fulfillment regardless if one wants to be married or not. Our Father gives us one life to live and it’s our responsibility to make the most of it in every season of our lives. Live single. Live free. Live in peace.


Dear Lord, living single has its ups and downs. Yet, I seek Your peace and contentment every day in this season or time of singleness. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
