How to Live With Purpose As Single Christian Women
I am convinced that this generation of single christian women aren’t thriving because they do not understand their purpose.
Think about it. If you knew your purpose and chased after it wholeheartedly, you would thrive because you are doing what you were made to do. Would your life be perfect? Definitely not. But a meaningful, purposeful life is so much more important than a perfect life. Agree??
Today I want to share with you 6 ways you can live with purpose as a single woman, so that you can thrive, and not just survive, during this season of your life!
1| Know What Your Purpose in Life Is
I believe that our purpose in life comes from Matthew 6:33 which says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Everything that we do should be under the banner of “seek first the Kingdom of God!” If you realize that your purpose in life is not to get married or even to be single, but to seek first the Kingdom, your life will reflect that.
Pray and seek wisdom (James 1:5) about what God has specifically planned for your life!
2| Cling to Jesus
Your life will never be the same if you truly cling to Jesus!
He can be your biggest confidant, best friend, comforter, and safe spot. So go to Him with everything. Trust Him with your life. Seek His guidance.
And just a tip: worship music is a key way to increase intimacy with God!
3| Debunk the Lies You Believe
I know that I’ve totally believed lies about my singleness. I knew I couldn’t be the only one, and when I asked the single christian ladies in my community if they believed the lies as well, my thoughts were confirmed.
It is almost impossible to truly live a purposeful life if you are clinging to lies. Truth sets us free and gives us freedom to walk with purpose!
With the help of my Instagram community and a few of my own experiences, I was able to make a list of quite a few lies single christian women believe and even wrote a blog post debunking them.
4| Cultivate an Others-Focused Mentality
It is hard to focus on feeling sorry for yourself or finding a partner when you are focusing on others! I have found this to be so true in my own life. That is why I try to be intentional about focusing on others.
Does that mean you should neglect your own well-being? Of course not! But focusing on others is Biblical and it helps us to live a purposeful life.
Find ways to serve in your community, church, neighborhood, or even just serving your family and friends! If done with a good attitude, it will bless you more than it blesses them.
5| Live in Community
Finding friends and community isn’t easy, I know. However, it is worth the effort! So maybe find a church with a good young adults Bible study, try out a new hobby where you can meet new people, and just reach out to people that you’d love to be friends with!
6| Have fun!
I always love to include this tip when talking about thriving and purpose as single christian women! Singleness does not have to equal boring. It can be so fun!
Don’t put off bucket-list items for when you are married. You don’t know when or if that will happen. Instead, go on that trip you’ve always wanted to take. Go skydiving if that’s your thing (I’ll watch from the ground haha). Take a class you would enjoy or benefit from. Treat yourself to a nice meal once in a while.
You don’t have to feel deprived as a single woman!
Ladies, I hope that these tips help you to truly live out your purpose! I know being single isn’t always easy, but the effort to thrive is always worth it.
I just wanted to end with one of my all time favorite blog posts (and a reader favorite!) to hopefully encourage you: A Heartfelt Letter to All the Single Girls (From a Single Girl).
