We were made for love. The issue isn’t whether you should love someone, but whom you should love! Our hearts were created with a hole in them that can only be filled by God. It doesn’t matter if you stay single the rest of your life or find yourself married by the end of this day: in order to live the satisfied life, you’re going to have to love Jesus with all of your heart. The good news is that you will find in Him everything you need to thrive!
Hey we’re on day 7 of the “Are you a Satisfied Single?” challenge and I trust you’re finding this resource beneficial to help you live the life that thrives. I’d like us to finish strong today with a clear sense of purpose and commitment. People joke that single people can’t commit. I don’t agree with them. I believe every single Christian commits to what he/she finds worthy of commitment. The life that thrives is what we’re after. By God’s grace and together, let’s make it happen.
You should be well on the road to the satisfied life that thrives by now! One of the toughest steps for the single Christian to overcome is to quit looking at the past and wonder what could have been. It’s time to stop living in the past. It’s time to get over self-pity and make the jump into the life that thrives. Are you ready to do it?
We’re on day 4 of the “are you a satisfied single?” challenge. Nothing will bring you greater satisfaction than living your life with single- minded focus. The apostle Paul understood it and I hope that by the end of today’s devotional you will too. Life is short. It’s time to quit wasting your time on what will not satisfy and live the life that thrives in focus.
We live in a sex-saturated culture and we’re told that without a great sex life we will never be satisfied. Every single Christian must make a decision: listen to the culture and live a life that lacks in true satisfaction, or heed God’s word on the topic and live fully satisfied in him. In today’s devotional, let’s talk about how to live satisfied in Christ. The best way to do it is to get over the sin in your life! If you’re like me, you can’t wait to start. So let’s hit the ground running!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve heard pastors and Bible study teachers tell me that singleness is a gift. My initial instinct is to punch a wall. Seriously? Singleness, a gift? But as I’ve studied God’s word, the truth is that singleness is in fact described as a gift. As you begin day 2 of the “are you a satisfied single” Challenge, ask yourself whether you have ever accepted your singleness as a gift from God. Then be willing to own up to the answer. It could be your secret to thriving as a single Christian
