Being Single

Sometimes you just want to be touched by another human being. You just want to be held, to be told that you matter; not that you don’t know it already, but because you want to hear the echo.

Sometimes you wonder, “Where’s my happily ever after? Has God forgotten about me”?

We are social creatures, we were not meant to live isolated lives. It is totally normal and natural and acceptable to feel the need to be in the company of others, or with someone dear to our hearts. These sentiments must not be frown upon because they are innate.

In Genesis 2:18, we read, “And the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make an help meet for him’” (Genesis 2:18 KJV).

So there you have it, God puts it in our hearts to feel the need to be loved, to be longed for, to feel wanted…

So, what better person is there to ask for your ‘happily-ever-after’ than the One who implanted this desire in you, even before you were born?

And don’t think it’s just an adult thing to feel the need to be in relationships; it’s an every living creature thing; man and beast, even plants if you care to go that far.

So, next time you’re feeling down because of your single life, remember that you are not truly alone and that the person that God has for you will be for you no matter what life throws at you. It is okay to feel down some days, just don’t stay down there…Get up, show up, show out, and ask God for strength to wait for what you deserve.

    1. I Agree who God has for you will be for you. I do believe there are people who do not connect with the rest of society. All in all great blog. Harris Dee

  1. I would like to borrow the words from the song of KIM HILL to say: ” In you alone, is where I find my comfort… In you alone, because you are my hiding place…” You can listen to it in YouTube, readers! I just want to make one more point…. In your search for your other half Ladies and Gentlemen; you will experience this: ” being loved and feeling love” …. Be very careful, it is two different things. If you’re BEING LOVED, you are at the receiving end… But if you are FEELING LOVE, you’re just starting a journey! This statement is a word of wisdom to me from the Holy Spirit! Thanks for sharing Poet99! Nicely written piece!
