If you’ve been single for a while, the words “thankful” and “singleness” may not come out of your mouth in the same sentence very often. I can fall down the slippery slope of negativity on the subject of dating and waiting with the best of them, but God has really convicted me to think more positively about my life. Since my relationship status can feel like a big chunk of my life, I decided to follow His lead and write out some of the reasons singleness can be pretty awesome.
As a disclaimer, some of you may see these “positives” as “negatives” but that’s the point of this list, really. My job here is to take what may be viewed as a “pain in my side” and turn it into a “blessing in disguise.” I hope you can look at singleness in a fresh way and remember that you are not alone in what can be viewed and felt as a very lonely road.
