Does Getting Married Seem Hopeless?
- Wednesday, November 30, 2005
“God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
Divorced, never married, widowed, whatever the reason for your singleness, you can trust God that He can use you where you are today for good.
“I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his Word I put my hope
He is your only hope. Cling to His Word. Don’t give up. Don’t lose heart. Don’t waste any more time feeling sorry for yourself. Live for today; live in the moment. I love what Jim Elliott said, “Wherever you are be all there.” Too often many singles miss life, simply waiting for the day they’ll get married. You’re missing too much life if you’re doing this. You’ve been given a purpose. You’ve been given gifts. You’ve been given life. Live it. Live it believing God for the impossible, for His best.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26).
Will you ever get married? Is it hopeless? Absolutely not. Nothing is impossible with God. No matter your age, your situation, your fears, trust Him. Put your hope in Him. And believe Him moment by moment, day by day. Joy will be back in your life as you continue to walk with Him, believing He knows what’s best for your life today.
