Still Single in your 30s? Don’t Give Up Hope!

Are you, maybe, in your thirties and still haven’t found the life partner God has for you? Have you lost hope in finding your match for life?

“I’ve put a time limit on when I will stop looking for a suitable mate, but is this the wrong idea when the Bible says that there is a season for everything?”


Some advice?

    • Many other Christian singles have been in your very position — looking for a spouse at, what some would say is, a ‘late’ age — and have found that spouse and are now happily married!

 

    • The Bible does not suggest there is a ‘time limit’ on your search for a spouse — thus, don’t put one upon yourself.

 

    • Be on the look out for opportunities — and keep initiating for them!

 

    • Pray to God to help you spot opportunities… and to find a spouse!

 

    • In you search, prioritize ‘biblical characteristics’ in the spouse your persue – i.e. physical attraction (etc.) should not be the foremost factor.

 

    • Seek help from Elders in your church or others who you trust, in suggesting a potential godly spouse you may have overlooked, or don’t know about!

 

  • Don’t sit idly while you’re single! — Serve in your church, or other places, where you can continue to develop your healthy relationship with God and others.

This is just a quick summary of the full advice offered by Scott Croft over at Boundless. Be sure to read the entire article for more insight into this topic!
