      Maximize your singleness

      Matt. 6:33 and he will give you all you need from day to day if you
      live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. NLT

      Being single is not a curse, it’s a blessing. You must realize that while you
      are single, you can do more for the Kingdom of God than you can while you are
      married. You answer to God alone and you can move and go as you please. Paul was
      teaching how good it is to be married, but how much better it is to be single
      for a season of growth. Plus, as a single, you can focus on finding God and your
      purpose without having to please God and a spouse. This is a time for you to
      move into your calling and then find or be found by that special person that
      fits into the plan of God for your life. But if you don’t know God’s plan for
      you, then you are dangerous to others and you should not even consider marriage!
      Allow God to use you before you begin to pray for a spouse. Serve God while you
      are single and realize that it is an opportune time to grow in him.

      Tips to being an empowered single Christian in 2009:

      - Don’t hang out with married people all the time!!! (that will only make you
      feel odd and long for a partner)

      - Stop listening to, reading, and watching movies, books, videos, and music that
      promote sex and sexual relations. (you don’t need that)

      - Seek the Kingdom of God by reading the word, praying for others, and being
      active in your fellowship.

      - Be careful in developing relationships with the opposite sex. (if you aren’t
      ready to marry, don’t get close!)

      - Pick your friends carefully. Don’t hang around folks that are deadbeats and
      aren’t going anywhere in life. (surround yourself with people that are already
      where you are trying go! That will only boost your drive!)

      - Don’t settle! (if he or she isn’t sent from God to you then don’t accept it!
      if you do, you may find yourself lowering your standards for the sake of love.
      that’s a big mistake! )

      - Spend time investing in yourself. While you are single, you can do this and
      not be selfish. Take advantage of that.  

      - Learn who you are in Christ and appreciate who he made you to be.

      - Don’t listen to negative talk about youself, but know in your heart how
      special you are to God and how special you will be to someone in the future.
      Anyone that does not consider you special does not deserve your friendship or
      your time.
