Corinthians 7:25-26. Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are.
I love music. In a sense, music is my life….or a big part of my life is musical. My love for music slowly began at the early stages of childhood during my Sunday school attendance years. My sister, Alice and I were members of the Sunday school choir. After school, we spent hours and hours practicising for the inter-parishes choir competition in our diocese. Then the day before the D-day, on the eve of the competition, we were all set. Our throats were now silky smooth, the choir uniform was already distributed, the standing arrangements were all in place. Finally, for the last time before we could stand before an audience, we watched out for our choirmaster’s hand. At the first struck of his hand, the angellic melody begins flowing powerfully from our mouths filling the air with life and purpose. THE REHEARSAL, the choirmaster told us, was more important than the competition itself. Before we dismissed, we knew victory was already ours for the taking!
Singlehood like music can also be a source of joy and a big part of one’s life. You see, for some of us…singlehood is a short period of time, for others it takes a long time before we move on to the next stage in life. And for a chosen few, singlehood is a lifetime call, a gift of grace. But no matter what stage of singlehood you may be in, like good music…singlehood can be enjoyed. In fact, like the good old days of my choir practice…singlehood is YOUR REHEARSAL for whatever calling the Lord has for you, be it as a lifetime single or a married person. SINGLES OUT THERE…Keep the rehearsal going and God will show up in HIS GOOD TIME.
