“…the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.”
Yesterday, myths about parenting…today, myths about marriage. In a post at the Girls Gone Wise blog, Sarah Bubar shares some of the myths she still battles as a single woman in her 30’s. I can remember all too well how these thoughts would easily destroy my contentment during my single years if I failed to confront them with truth.
- I’ll be happy if I’m married because I won’t be alone anymore.
- I’ll feel complete if I’m married. I’ll have accomplished something with my life.
- It must be God’s will for me to get married because I want it so badly.
- If I never get married, it must be a punishment of some kind.
Read the truths that contradict these myths in the article “Calling All Single Ladies.”
Whether you’re married or single now, have you been tempted to believe these myths? How are you finding (or how did you find) contentment during your single years?
