A recent article in Christianity Today discusses a growing number of single Christian women who may be [sinfully?] “dating” Jesus Christ and hence, running the danger of not opening themselves up emotionally to real human beings — aka potential partners. Hmm. Interesting. Naturally, it propelled me to examine my own walk in this rather complex 21st century post-dating world.
I can’t deny that the write up is squarely describing someone like me. I’m a self-sufficient woman who is finding satisfaction and contentment in the season that God has me in at this time — among many things, that includes being single.
But wait, let me repeat that because I don’t want you to miss an important point — I’m finding satisfaction in the season of life I’m in — and among many things, that includes being single. I draw attention to that particular point because I believe that our marital status doesn’t (and shouldn’t) be the sole defining factor of our lives. And I find that society sometimes puts a tad bit too much emphasis on whether someone is married or single. Without fail, it is always a top question during dinners with friends and family get-togethers. Are you dating anyone?
From time to time, I like to take a step back and ponder on how I got to where I am today. No, I’m not just talking about my career, marital status or how much money I have in the bank. I’m talking about my character — my soul. As a woman who is finding more of her existence strongly driven by Christian values, I now operate based on a different set of standards. Let’s just say that receiving God caused the ultimate transformation — and soon after, my world began to look very differently. In my pursuit to understand life under a new lens, I recall past experiences and people who have come in and out of my life that help put the world in context. And somehow, I believe that remembering those life accounts serves a meaningful purpose — it’s so that every now and then, my consciousness can reverse itself, flash the I that once was and be humbly reminded of how far I’ve come. Sounds like a productive walk, yes? Yes, if my thoughts stopped there, where the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. But going down this road also resurfaces unfinished business that I have worked hard to convince myself is a chapter in my book long closed. Oh you know, we all have those regrets — the kind that we wish we’d forgotten, but are still an issue? And on a deep (like, I’m talking really deep here) level, they actually still affect our decisions today.
