Each age of singleness brings its own challenges. Since the category of “older singles” seems to be those in their 30s and 40s, I fall into the “ancient” category – on the outside, I guess. Inside, I have the same hopes and desires for a Godly marriage as when I was much younger. It’s my hope that my thoughts in this blog will speak to those of any age. And, I certainly welcome your comments to sharpen my discernment as to what a wide selection of singles face as they grow in their walk with God.
So, walk with me as I start into this blogging world through this developing site.
Why Another Blog on Singleness?
Walk through a Christian bookstore – or any bookstore for that matter – and you will see many books on marriage. How-to books and fix-it books abound. Marriage seminars abound to help people be successful in the hard work of building the closest relationship they will have on earth. Anniversaries are celebrated and long-lived marriages are honored.
When was the last time you heard someone celebrate and applaud the successful living out of a faithful Christian single life? My guess is that it is never.
As I share aspects of my own singleness journey, I look forward to hearing from many of you to help shape this blog as we talk about how best to live in faithfulness and fulness. Jesus said in Matthew 5:6 that those who hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled. Some translations use the word, satisfied.
I also decided to make this blog public as I am in the process of developing it. So, you will see my attempts to become better acquainted with all the details of WordPress.
Thank you for reading!
