Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Knows What It Feels Like to Be Alone

On Being Hindered - Part 5

In Romans 12, Paul is telling us that the problem is in our minds. We sometimes have a hard time deciding whether to end a relationship because we are not thinking straight. I have been there on more than one occasion. Far too often I knew what to do, but my mind conjured other ideas that made me pause. The problem was in my mind.

Singles in the Church: Views from the Pulpit

If the whole point of going to church is to avoid "forsaking the assembling of ourselves together," should your church leadership develop programming to augment that which divides us?

On Being Hindered - Part 3

If someone is not drawing you deeper into fellowship with the Lord, that person is a hindrance. It may very well be that to live a life pleasing to the Lord you need to be somewhat ruthless. If this is why you are still single, no apology is needed.

On Being Hindered - Part 2

Being hindered by God may be unpleasant, may be painful, but it is the surest sign that we are loved. God just may introduce obstacles or obstructions in the path you choose. He may look to hinder a relationship, to prevent or stymie the relationship, and He does all this in love.

On Being Hindered - Part 1

Sometimes it all looks so good that it is the most miserable thing to find one thing that hinders. It all looks so good except for the qualities that do not fit the character you are looking for. If God is trying to hinder you, if the Lord has revealed reasons for pause—PAUSE! Be hindered!

On Being Hindered - Part 4

"He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things" (Rom. 8:32)? No one can promise you that "all things" includes a mate, but we can definitively say that he is a generous God who lavishes blessings on his children. Therefore, we can also say that the delay does not indicate a lack of love.
