Not Unredeemed

… living the beautiful tension between what is, and what will be …

A Fulfilled Singleness

Leave a comment

I’m quickly approaching a new age bracket. Next month I cross over into a different age category on the check boxes in every church bulletin and doctor’s office. It’s caused me to ponder a few things. Where I am right now – is this what I thought my life would look like, or what I dreamed of when I was growing up? No. I’d thought I would be married with a parcel of kids by now. Over at YLCF, we did a survey of our readers and I heard many of our girls crying out in their singleness – I understand their questions and longings. Is it possible to be fulfilled as a single person?

“One of my deepest longings is still to be married and work alongside my husband in ministry someday. But the Lord has called me to something that doesn’t cancel out my wish to be married. In fact, what He’s called me to enhances and fulfills the desire I have to be married because it encompasses it: He has called me to glorify Him.”
