Day 13|Tell us about your current relationship status.
This question is one that so often makes it's way into conversations and, like so many other topics, I try to avoid the answer. I'm currently single. Not to worry, I have the perfect milkshake recipe to change this. Sometimes, I'm also funny.
I would have to say that for the most part, I'm not bothered by my singleness. In fact, most weeks I have little time to even think on it. There are weeks that go by and I barely have enough time for my roommates and I think,"where would a boyfriend fit in all of this?"
But I would definitely say that there are times I wish to be in a relationship, to have a boyfriend. And when those thoughts come I find myself believing the lie that others have some prized gift from God that He refuses to grant to me. In one of my failed blogs I wrote about these feelings quoting Isaiah 54:1-5 and saying:
“Sing, O barren women, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman that of her who has a husband,” says the Lord.
When thoughts of mistrust of God in this area of my life pop into my head, this is the passage to which I turn. The fact of the matter is, my life is crazy right now, and I wouldn't even be a good date at this stage of my life. And although some days are tougher than others, I can say today, that I'm thankful I'm single.
I won't ask you to bare all in the comments. But what has been/is your perspective on being single? Married or not married, all thoughts welcome?
