Whole self worth
If you’re looking for the core remedy to the core problem of being lonely as a single, this is a great book for you to discover. However, if you’re not willing to be teachable through a scriptural context, this book probably isn’t for you, as it deals with identity as a child of the King, Jesus Christ.
The foundational issue in singleness is identity in your Creator, not your potential partner. Everyone in some fashion, wants to be pursued and wooed. Yet, scripture from cover to cover holds to this theme of being pursued by God and reconciled to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. When you understand this truth, contentment becomes the theme of your life, rather than loneliness.
But, will there be seasons and moments of loneliness, still? Yes, because the enemy is waging war on our identity constantly and desires for singles to see God as one who does not care, has not provided and has ultimately forsaken us. This is absolutely untrue, but often listened to and believed.
A single who desires to be whole, must seek God continually through His Word and be reminded of His pursuit after them, constantly. When your identity becomes strong in Christ, the rest of your life files suit and abundant joy becomes the experience.
If you’re single, you are free to serve God. If you’re married, you are free to serve God, mainly through your spouse and family. If you’re single, the lives of others becomes your priority to serve. No matter if you’re married or single, life isn’t about you.
Seek wholeness in Christ whether you are married or not. Find the return of His joy and love poured into your life as you sit at His fountain of constant love.
