I have written this in the past for my Church magazine.
The way which some of us are living is the way, in which some of us have to make do, with living. Perhaps even just for a little while.
Then, to be single, in some cases, that is how one may choose to live. The truth is we all deserve the right to live our lives the way, which we find it best for us live. In other words, we should live according to our own choice, yet righteously! Saying that however, keep in mind no one ever knows everything. There comes a time, when we should try and take all the first-rate advice from others, as much as possible.
I think a single young person should apt to listen to others, such as mature couples. They could have some fine suggestions about life. Then listening to them could be good for you to do. For even, if after when you’ve listened, you then, chosen not to follow what you have heard them said; it might still be good that at first you did take the time to have listened. Hardly any harm can come to you just by listening to suggestions. Taking them is what can make the difference, as they can even become sometimes real harmful. Then you just have to be careful from whom you take an advice.
The reason older people, they could be the best for you to listen to; it’s because they’ve been a long way through life. And so, they might have seen where they have made mistakes. Whereby, they can use to guide immature folks away from some pitfalls. Also, you are to bear this in mind, if some older people could live their lives anew, and having the same wisdom, which they’ve accumulated by old age; they would have perhaps make many changes in their lives. I know for sure that I would make some changes in my life. Mind you, saying all that! To be fair, whatever I have gained or, fail to have gained: I’m still willing to make myself happy, with thanks and some praises in my mouth for my God continually.
Mind you, how a single person can be living contentedly, I just can't understand. On the other hand, if one would be willing to share his/hers life living with someone else, and then, having to be living a life of misery with that person; then, to live single, I reckon that it would be better. Yet life is not without its problems; so, single people can have troubles, just as many couples that are having their share of troubles too. We are living into a worrying world that’s why it is so hard to find the right partner, and to settle down.
Trust these days might have been the root of all the problems. Due to the unfair treatment, which single people might have experienced, perhaps, even by the hardship, which they’ve seen their friends or their families that are in bond suffered. It scares them to decide on whether to take a partner, or not! It is really becoming much more difficult, to put confidence in anyone at present; all the same, it can be done, just be sensible with who you are choosing, “To be trusting in the Lord, is better than to put confidence in man.”
If you are a single person, allow the Lord to lead the way for you, as He is the only one, who knows the future. With God no one can go wrong. Take care when you’re choosing to share your life with another; but try your best not to decide on spending it being single; as, it is not God’s just will for you. “God says it not good for man to be alone.” In other place, it is written this way: “Two are better than one.” Ecclesiastes Chapter 4: 9 …. However, at the end of the day, your life is yours. And you should be free to spend it righteously as you desire. It’s my hope for God to bless you, and keep you so that you’ll never find yourself in great wants.
