Single. It almost seems like I’m drumming a drum that’s ominous, and nobody quite wants to hear that drum. In a world where most people have a special someone, girlfriend or boyfriend, I’m almost 25 and not married. It’s not that I want to live by myself for ever or live for myself. I don’t actually have a huge desire to be a career woman, although I don’t think that’s necessarily wrong. I’ve just never quite fit into the typical. I love working, but I don’t always love making money. This blog post isn’t about over spiritualizing singleness or saying that marriage is bad, but this is me working through the thoughts, the journey that God has me on right at this moment.
I know. I’m odd.
But that’s beside what I think the Lord wants me to share.
Singlesness is not a bad thing.
I’ve been listening and relistening to 1 Corinthians 7, and these verses have been on my mind a lot these past few weeks.
