Feeling Left Behind?
How to have Victory in Your Singleness
by Valerie Clayton
There was a season in my single life in which I was miserable.
Unfortunately that season lasted for manyyears.
One feeling that I struggled with was the sensation of being left behind as girlfriends
married. Instead of being married, fulfilling a logical
step in my life plan, I was still dodging questions from
well-meaning relatives as to why I had not met that special
someone. Although I was happy for my friends, I also felt
envious of their progress, fearful of a future alone, and
out-of-step with the rest of society.
To turn my life around, I had to embrace these life-affirming
God had a plan for my life and that He
was always working to bring that plan forth.
I am unique. I discovered, embraced and
developed talents, gifts and interests which caused me
to move towards my dreams and fulfill my purpose
I needed good friends. I developed a network
of supportive friends who I could go out with, talk to,
and share my feelings.
Anchoring ourselves to God, discovering
who weare, and fellowshipping with good friends leads
us to live a fulfilling life.
