Jesus, surprise me.

Society's perception is that if you're single, you're unhappy — and if you're in a relationship, you're automatically happy. Given how many people live fulfilling single lives.


Being single doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you —it just means you’ve chosen a different path.


The greatest gift the church offers to single people is a place to belong. God calls us and takes us as we are, and singles need to be reminded that our presence among the body of Christ is sufficient on its own. For single people in particular, there is great comfort in knowing that God beholds the entirety of our lives. We each bring a unique set of gifts, passions, personal history, and a myriad of relationships. There is so much more to a single person than their state in life.


Maybe someday, you will meet someone who is worthy of your time; of your love. Someone who can grow in faith with you.


Until then, keep grounded. Pray and discern.


Amen.
