Single and Trusting in God's Plan

Back to Growth Plan List

When you are single, you are presented with unique opportunities and challenges that many other people don’t have. You can live with freedom and flexibility. You don’t have to share your income, and you can generally do what you want.

However, there are also real challenges that come with being single. You can feel lonely and out of place. You might find yourself desperate for an intimate relationship. You might feel like you are in a constant state of transition. And you just get so tired of everyone asking if you have a special person in your life!

 Whether you have been in this season for a while, or you are newly single, God has a special and specific plan for your life—right now, in the middle of your singleness. That is why we have gathered some of our best content with advice to help you navigate the path of singleness while you search for meaning in your life and grow closer to God.

Waiting on God

When we get impatient and try to move ahead of God’s plan for us, we have a tendency to sin or to settle for something less than His will. God is not a God of settling. He wants to give us His best.

God Has a Plan

God wants to reveal the person He has for you, but He wants to do it in His timing and by His rules. As you wait, He wants you to focus on the internal and eternal things instead of on the external things the world says to look for in a relationship.
