Singleness Is Not a Problem to Be Solved
If you want to make the most of singleness, even while you long to be married, here are a few practical points I learned in my own season of waiting.

In whatever season of waiting God might have you in, choose to bloom where you’re planted. Embrace the life God has called you to, whether single or married. Trust that both callings are precious gifts of grace, both with painful and overwhelming hardships.

Happiness is not found through finding a soul mate, but through finding satisfaction in a loving Savior who has called you his own and made you a beloved son or daughter of the King.

The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet it is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: Small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.

Robert Fludd - Under Your Wings, “Utriusque Cosmi”, 1621.

King David kneels before the Highest saying: “Under the Shadow of your wings I rejoice” (Psalm 63:7). The theme recalls the Rosicrucian manifesto of 1614 that ended with similar words: “Sub umbra alarum tuarum Jehovah”. The clouds have parted to let David see directly the Tetragrammaton, the unpronounceable word that the Jews refer to as Adonai (Lord) or simply as Shem (The Word). Fludd generally used these Hebrew letters to represent God in his diagrams. Kabbalists are easily accommodated to the doctrine of the Trinity: the three different letters Yod, He and Vau, which are interpreted as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
