Celebrating the gift of singleness

Hey, girls!

When you think or talk about singleness, do you use words like “celebrate,” “delicious freedom,” and “gift”?

Susan Yates, Janet Parshall, and Pastor Ligon Duncan do! Hear their refreshing take on this particular moment in your life from this True Woman Video:

It may be hard to do, but would you join me today in thanking God for the gift of singleness? Would you ask Him for His perspective on your singleness?

Abba, thank you that You know what I need. That You give good gifts to your kids. Let me taste and see that You are better than life itself. Teach me to entrust my love life to You, and throw all my energy into walking closely with You. Thank You for the energy and trouble and pain You went to in order to make a way for me to have a relationship with You. I love You. Thank You for loving me more!
