Wow Rebecca, such wisdom is held in your comment. I believe you are spot on. Contentment comes from being a whole person & learning to accept and love yourself first. If you want to find the right person you must first BE the right person. Tha
Thank you for your thoughts. A whole person who has learned to love and care for themselves will have much to offer their beloved should they marry.
Jenna, You are a very wise young woman. It is clear you have learned the secret of contentment. I am pleased to hear you turn to Christ for fulfillment. I agree with your statement that you need to be whole before inviting someone into your life.
In a book I just read and hubbed about, there was a good quote that related to this: " Why was she thinking of choosing a man who could make her whole? How could she do that when she didn’t yet know who she was in the world?"
teacherjoe, Actually I am married but have been asked to speak to singles about contentment in Christ. You have learned the secret I see. Marriage requires humility and very hard work. Most are not willing .. so are miserable.
I'm married & have joy in my relationship with my husband. I think many married couples are miserable because they marry before they find contentment as a single person first...and marriage takes dedication. I'm glad you've found joy in Jesus.
JBrumett, first of all thank you for your sacrifice in serving our country. Our soldiers pay a huge price and there are so many going through what you describe here. I commend your wisdom in waiting on a relationship for time to heal.
It is good that you can see the positives of being single. Life is less complicated and you can pretty much make your own decisions without having to consider how it would affect your spouse or children ... I get it! Thanks for your comment.
You are not alone Free .. Thanks for your input.
Good Morning Jay, God does have good plans for our future. Thanks!
