Single Ladies, Rock Your Single Life!
Single ladies our time is NOW! Too many times we, as singles, sit back in the shadows. We have a tendency to allow our single status to define us instead of relishing our whole selves. Singleness is only a part of who we are. As Christian singles, we REALLY have something to shout about. God is using our episode of ‘The Single Life’ for His purpose. We have a HUGE reason to celebrate singleness. We celebrate because this is the time God has given to us to be what He wants us to be. God has given us this season to learn how to surrender completely to Him. When in a relationship, it is easy to become wrapped up in our mate, that God can become a distant second…or even third in our life. Right now, our concentration is NOT divided, so our obedient response to His call is not hindered. Right now, we have the enthusiasm to be devoted servants. God teaches us to serve and to become mature in spiritual things. As single ladies, this is a great benefit. And on a side note, being mature in Christ, is very appealing to the RIGHT man!
So now that we know that there are more than a few reasons to celebrate our single life, how do we celebrate it?
- With Extreme Self Care
We can’t do much of ANYTHING if we don’t take great care of ourselves! God gave us this body and this time. We are a steward of both, so we must be wise in caring for them. Let us get enough sleep, and to eat well. It’s good for the body! Exercise.
- Spending Time With God.
Spending time with God is essential if we want to grow in our faith. By reading and meditating on His word. We will not be easily shaken by the swift changes in life. Life changes quickly.
- Spending Time With Yourself
So maybe this sounds like a recipe for loneliness , but I assure you that it’s a prerequisite as single ladies. (For Some reason, I hear Beyoncé! ) Knowing who we are and what we want from life is necessary for personal growth.
- Spending Time with Family and Friends
Romantic relationships have a tendency to take up lots of time. As single-in-Christ women we have the opportunity to delve deeper into other significant relationships. Remember, the people who have always been there for us…will always be there for us.
- Being Spontaneous
Spontaneity is an awesome thing! We can do we want without the prior approval of a significant other. That’s pretty liberating! Go get that Gucci, girl!
- Committing To Ministry
This is pretty important. All of us should take part in ministry as Christ followers. It is essential for spiritual growth, needed for personal growth, it is commanded in scripture. Matthew 28:19, tells us that we have a duty to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are so many people who don’t know Jesus. This is our chance to help those who are hurting and need the Risen Savior.
Let’s go exploring! The world is our oyster! This a great time to explore new and different opportunities. None can know what’s out there in the great unknown until we take a step forward.
Volunteering is a wonderful way to stretch ourselves and a way to help people. It is also an opportunity to experience life through different lenses.
- Get A Hobby
Get creative! As single women, we have to get all the wheels turning and creative juices flowing! By getting a hobby, we can relieve stress, meet new accomplishments, and just plain have fun!
Sometimes we block our own blessings by holding on to things that should have been released long ago. By letting go of past hurt caused by others, we allow blessings to flow into our lives. Forgiving others allow us to overcome feelings of anger and bitterness. Letting go of those feelings gives God room to be God for us.
