16 Exclusive Spiritual Confessions To Make While Single
For those of us that are single, sometimes it can be a bit challenging living a life of purity. It is especially harder among teenagers who are constantly under peer pressure to indulge in things just so they can fit it and be accepted by their peers.
Now purity is by no means referring to just sex or sexual indulgence, rather it is keeping ourselves free from anything that debases, contaminates, pollutes, is inferior or that is contaminating in nature [thought, word, action].
For Christians, purity is keeping out of your life anything that is not of God or that which is outside of God’s plan and will for you.
Today’s post is to encourage and strengthen your spiritual walk so that you may experience victory in your life.

I really enjoyed reading through your post. I’m single and it does not bother me at all in the slightest. I don’t want a partner for the sake of it. I will wait until I find the man that is right for me. That is not to say in the past I have not felt self conscious over being single. .
Although I have struggled with other people seeing me as a threat being single. That is always tiresome. It used to really affect me. Woman seeing me as a threat, men thinking my happy go lucky demeanor is flirty. It used to confuse me no end. I was going about my business and conversing. Then I used to quieten down. Now if people want to misinterpret me being approachable as a come on they will certainly have to face rejection.
As I have gotten older my intuition is louder than it has ever been. Even it I was tempted in anyway, my body takes over. And the reason I know it is great because it only happens when I maybe thinking temptation. Like going on a binge drink.
Oh the young people. The pressures they under. So much confusion. Finding themselves, knowing right front wrong. Experimentation. Fitting in. The list is endless. As we get older we are not as easily hurt by the disapproval of others or saying NO to things that as a young person we may have felt pressured to do.
Great topic. I could speak endlessly about being single in the middle ages.
So happy to see you on board sharing your thoughts on this topic/post. I can certainly identify with those things that you have gone through of how other people, both men and women view your singleness and your approach in life. I can’t recall a day when someone did not misunderstand or misinterpret my demeanor towards them.
Like you it bothered me initially but I found out that the only reason they feel threatened by me had nothing to do with my being single but because they see the power and the dream I carry around daily inside of me.
Generally speaking though, women tend to be jealous of women who appear to be strong and confident while men are intimidated by the single woman’s strength, her power and her level of confidence and her independance. Hope that make sense to you of where I am coming from. 🙂 Initially I thought something was wrong with me, but not anymore.
I thank God for the way He has kept me and for bringing my flesh under control. I know that He will keep you also. 🙂 Have a great day.
