Single isn't alone

Self-completeness isn't a matter of having a human companion; it's a matter of seeing that our relationship to God supplies our every need.

Recently I spent some time with old friends who are single, just as I am. Most were involved, in one way or another, in relationships that weren't going smoothly. They are all good people with much to offer. But somehow they seemed to be "unlucky in love." The person who would be right for each of them just wasn't on the scene. And so they were feeling frustrated.

Companionship is a basic human need. We grow through sharing with others, and we feel more secure when we know that we aren't facing the world all on our own. But we're not limited merely to hoping we'll find someone to make us happy, because God Himself gives us the love we need. And not in an otherworldly way, but with a tangible immediacy.
