We can hold fast to the promise in Romans 8:1, that, “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
Sisters, your soul will find unending peace and joy as you learn how precious you are to your Father, and that is what will sanctify you, change your actions, and make you more tender, long-suffering, gracious, and wise toward your children.
My present singleness is one of God’s greatest gifts to me—not merely as a sanctifying force or as a season of life to weather successfully. Rather, my singleness is a celebrated assignment, through which the Lord is given glory by the unencumbered way I wield my time and energy for His renown.
