Singles can sometimes feel lonely or disappointed about not having met their perfect match yet. Our blog post today takes a slightly different approach on this. It’s about the impact of Jesus’ actions in the world and in our own lives. And, that we shouldn’t take for granted the plans He has for each one of us.
Given that our God is Love, when we find God, we also find love. We can love others better when we love God first. As the Bible says: “We love because He first loved us” (I John 4:19).
Easter is upon us, where we celebrate the death and resurrection of Our Lord and Savior. It’s also a great time to connect with family and fellow Christians. And, a time where singles can reflect on their lives and understand the importance of keeping strong in their faith, while in this singles phase.
This is because Easter is a family holiday for most of us, but also a time where singles can feel lonely and disappointed that their plans to meet someone haven’t yet happened. Being around married relatives and friends can a constant reminder of this.
When your emotions get in the way of not being able to connect yet with your true love, make sure you don’t let the “blues” of singleness hit you during an otherwise Happy Easter time.
Understanding God’s plans for you this Easter
Jesus had His plan for salvation for all of us when He offered His Life on that cross 2,000 years ago. If you think that you’re not important and feel that your prayers aren’t answered, consider that realization. When we reflect on the blessings we already have in our lives, it can put things into perspective.
This is not to say that any feelings of loneliness aren’t important. God cares about you! We can’t always see the big picture that the Lord has for our lives. Know, though, that He has your concerns close to His Heart.
Perhaps you’ve been waiting for a long time for that special someone to come into your life. However, our plans are not always His plans. Sometimes our prayers are answered, but not the way we expect. It comes down to faith and trusting Him.
When we spend time with the people we love and understand what Easter truly means for all mankind, we can appreciate more of this time of celebration, a celebration of the victory of our Lord over sin and death.
Like Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Valentine’sDay, Easter can be a lonely holiday for singles. Those of us who are Christians understand the importance of these holidays. That doesn’t always mean we’ll be happy, though. It’s okay to feel sad that you haven’t yet found someone to share your life with.
Some singles feel forgotten and prefer to spend this time alone, but we encourage you to celebrate Easter with others. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we share in His conquering of the grave. What else could be as exciting as being able to understand that our faith in our Lord gives us eternal life with Him?
Importance of Easter and why we should be happy
As we’ve already pointed out, Easter is such an amazing celebration and can be a great time for singles to be with family and fellow Christians. And also a great time to reflect on all that God has done for us.
When we truly understand the importance of that very first Easter 2,000 years ago and the joy of that first Easter Sunday and how the Resurrection shaped our faith, it can be an amazing experience. Every single Christian around the world, married or single, can readily celebrate this incredible journey that only Christ could have accomplished.
Jesus wants us to celebrate, not be unhappy. He understands our deepest heart’s desires. If they’re in line with the plans He has for us, it will all work out in His perfect timing. Even if marriage isn’t in His plans for us, we should still praise Him and ask Him to help us to accept with joyful hearts whatever He has in store for us.
There are several reasons some singles can feel lonely and isolated. However, we encourage them to find a way to enjoy and be joyful during this Happy Easter holiday. We should see it as a wonderful gift from God, Who in the Person of the Son laid down His life for all of us.
Why should we show appreciation and our thankfulness this Easter
Our wonderful God wants us to be happy and fulfilled and to know where our hope comes from. If we can show unbelievers why we’ve hopeful, why we’re happy, and why our lives are worth every second of life, we also can show them why that empty tomb is so important for us and for all of humanity.
If we reveal where our love comes from, and why we act the way we do, it’s the best way for us to share the Gospel.
Please don’t misunderstand us, as it is okay to feel lonely and want to be in a relationship with the right person for you. Millions of other singles around the world feel the same way, too. So, you’re not alone! Most singles go through these ‘solitude’ periods. It’s totally normal. But, make sure to not let your emotions take away your joy of being a part of God’s family.
Check out one of our previous blog post: Happy And Single
We pray that God gives you a heart of peace and trust. And, that you know that no one else can fill that place in your heart that belongs to Him. After all, your joy and happiness aren’t dependent on someone else. True completeness is only achieved when we understand that God is in control of our lives (we do have to let Him, though!).
Remember that you’re exactly in the right place at the right time He wants for you. If He has someone for you, He’ll reveal that person to you at the right time. Just make sure you’re available!
Be Joyful This Easter
Live life with the joy of knowing that God is all-powerful and can bless your life with His power. Make your joy and happiness independent of someone else’s. If you’re not happy as a single, you won’t be happy in a relationship. So, be happy and joyful especially at this time where we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Savior!
HAPPY EASTER DEAR SINGLE!
