For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
- Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
Hello, ladies. I am a Christian Single Woman without any children still living at home. Are you Single and Childless and still live with your parents or other relatives? Or are you living with other Christian Single women? I'm not sure how many of us fit this category here in the States. I know recently I've meet at least a few ladies that fit that description. Did you know that it's Biblical that unmarried Single women still live at home? They don't move out until marriage or some other situation that is part of God's will. I just want to write this short letter to encourage you all. It's okay to still live at home or with other Christian women. Don't let society or your community or your cultural norms around you to push you to move away from where God has placed you already. Read this encouraging article as you live in your season of Singleness.
I'm blessed that I can live at home. My mom gives me the freedom of independence and privacy. While at home, I'm able to assist her if she needs help. I know when it's time for me to move out, God will lead the way. For now, I know I need to stay where our Lord has placed me. I am thankful that I get a chance to live with my mom longer. I know I won't always have her around forever.
If your home situation isn't ideal, it's okay to live with other Christian Single ladies. Why do I need to live at home or with other women? I don't know your situations. I know that God loves you dearly and he knows you inside and out. You are his princess. He wants you safe. In my personal experiences, I know how I live pleases God. Living at home or living with other Christian Single women is a safety thing as well as a space where God can fully work in you. You will have others supporting you that is closer in proximity as well as you can support them too.
I just want to share an example of what is pleasing to our Lord from the Bible. Below was Apostle Paul praise of a godly woman:
I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deaconess of the church in Cenchreae. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me," said Apostle Paul.
Thank you for what you've done for me. I lift up all of the unmarried Daughters of yours. May you give them peace of mind that it's okay where they are at. For those who aren't living in an ideal situation, may you place them in a safe place where you can best fully prepare them for whatever future you set for them. If they are a bit lost, Jesus, bring them back to our heavenly Father's grace and love. May these ladies have a deep relationship with you. May we all grow deeper in our faith. May we continue to serve you Lord. In what we say and do, we bring glorify to you, Abba. Thank you Holy Spirit for your assistance when many times when I needed you. May we not lean on our understanding but in yours always. Amen!
