Day 293: Relationships

The sermon at church this morning was about the importance of having relationships with people, and how we weren’t meant to be alone. Everyone has relationships, it’s pretty hard not to unless you’re a hermit, but not everyone makes them a priority. I’m very grateful for the various relationships I have with family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc.

I’m an introvert but I enjoy spending time with people and talking with them or just listening. While I enjoy spending time alone, I couldn’t stand being alone all the time, and it’s nice to be able to spend time with and build relationships with people. At times I feel lonely even in a group of people, but I’m glad when there’s at least one person I have a good relationship with that I can go talk to. But the most important relationship I have is with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and with him I am never alone.

Day 293: Thank you Lord that we have relationships so we’re not alone in the world.

Day 118: Being Single

This morning at church the sermon was about being single; how it is a gift that singles can use to bless the body of Christ. It was such a great reminder for me. I’ve never been married, never even had a boyfriend, because I believe that if God wills he will bring the right man along, and if not I’m ok with it. But that doesn’t mean I don’t struggle at times with being single. I’d love to be in a relationship, but my beliefs on the subject are stronger than my personal desires.

I do see the benefits of being single. I can devote time that I would not have if I were married or in a relationship to God’s work. If God wants me to get married someday so be it, but I am happy to serve him like I am while I’m single.

Day 118: Thank you Lord that I can serve you like I can while I’m single.
