St. Paul wrote: "I wish everyone could get along without marrying, just as I do. But we are not all the same. God gives some the gift of marriage and others He gives the gift of being able to stay happily unmarried."
Some people have been chosen and graced by the Lord to be single. Paul was one of them.
Paul spent all but seven years of his ministry in prison, where he wrote the epistles. His God-given assignment in life was suited to singleness. No person should ever be ashamed or embarrassed because he or she is single.
As my Grandma used to always lovingly counsel me even until she was 105: "es mucho mejor estar solo que mal acompañado" ~ which in Spanish means it is much better to be alone than accompanied by the wrong person.
In today's world of incessant social media approval, there has never been more pressure for people to be "hooked-up" than ever before. To be a part of the "in" crowd, way too many humans SETTLE for just anybody not to be alone; rather than to 1st work on themselves, self-actualize and then attract the partner of their dreams.
That opposites attract is total nonsense! As 4th dimensional vibrational energy magnets, like attracts like. To enhance these spiritual mathematics, folks can choose to ask Abba Yahweh (Father God in Hebrew) to be the 3rd person in the equation creating Divine Intimacy.
With Yahweh walking hand-in-hand with us, life's obstacles are so much easier to overcome.
The key to self actualization is to TRULY KNOW oneself. Daily conducting a Soul MRI, I examine myself spiritually to assure that I am on the right track. If I am in the psychopathy of wanting approval, control or perceived safety at any cost, I immediately repent knowing that I am instantly forgiven ~ and then forgive myself and move on turning and closing the page.
Eschewing pornography, marathon NETFLIX streaming, non-stop cell phone use and to really, really be comfortable in one's own skin is Nirvana. The need for just ANY companionship diminishes as a person is totally joyful being alone living in Divine Allowance.
Then the embracing of the "like attracts like" formula creates the opportunity for serendipitous occurrences. It's when we force ourselves and another to participate in an unthought relationship that all hell can break out, leaving each partner worse off than before they met.
An Edenic life is meant to be a shared experience. What's better, taking a solitary selfie at The Golden Gate Bridge or walking the span with the love of your life and asking a fellow tourist to snap a pic of both of you?
Bottom_______take your time and enjoy the freedom of living alone while doing the necessary work on yourself to become the very best version of YOU!
Christ Yeshua comforts us by saying:
"Behold, the hour is coming ~ indeed it has come, when you will be scattered each to his own home and will leave me alone.
Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart ~ I have overcome the world.”
And so should all of us!
