Bible Verse of the Day for Struggling Singles

Bible Verse of the Day for Struggling Singles

Our Bible verse of the day is pertinent for many Christian singles struggling with lustful desires. What I find encouraging in our Bible verse of the day is that even faithful Timothy, to whom St. Paul was writing, suffered through some of the same temptations we do battle with in our lives.

So on this Lord’s Day, let His Spirit speak to you, and give you hope as you meditate on this Bible verse of the day:

-Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart- 2 Timothy 2:22

Do you have something to share about this Bible verse of the day?

    i am so angry
    do you know why?
    because for some reason it is presumed that only men suffer the temptation to have sex and lust
    for goodness sake
    did god only make men to be sexual beings ??
    its so rediculous
    in fact i believe that most women are just as sexually motivated if not more than men
    men want sex yes
    but so do women
    god didnt make women less sexual
    oh this attitude makes me so mad
    i myself am a christian female who gets incredibly tempted and frustrated
    i have the temptation to look at porn
    fantasy
    lust lust and lust
    this world is so out of proportion with its beliefs about female desire for sex

    I’m struggling… I feel fearful and discouraged and I hate when I fall for lust. May the Holy Spirit of God be merciful of us and renew our hearts.

    I BELIEVE THAT IT IS HARD FOR ALL HUMANS WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUAL DESIRES, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT I HAVE LEARNED IN MY LIFETIME AS A CHRISTIAN IS THAT GOD DoES NOT CARE HOW MANY TIMES WE SIN, BUT RATHER HOW MANY TIMES WE ARE WILLING TO STAND BACK UP AGAIN AND LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES…JUST LOOK AT THE LIFE OF KING DAVID. HE WAS PLEASING GOD IN MANY WAYS BUT NEVER STOPPED SINNING, GOD STILL LOVED HIM BECAUSE HIS DESIRE WAS TO PLEASE THE LORD. LETS TRY TO DO THE SAME…GOD BLESS!

    I am a christian woman and I think this world is couple orientated. Every where you see couples, most of the sermons in church about relationships are about married couples. What about us, the single men and women who are tempted and have desires. I think that those who are married forget what being single, tempted and sometimes lonely is like.

    I do agree that its hard for us all when it comes to sexual desires. But I want to point out something important that is unless we try to overcome the evil desires by the strength and the grace of the Lord it is going to be very difficult. Because it is the Lord who gives us the strength and the desire to follow Him and to defeat the evil one. We are nothing without His grace and mercy…. Let us ask the Lord for His Spirit to strengthen us and guide us. This is my experience…. After I met the Lord my whole life was changed… I could easily control my evil desires… Praise the Lord! God bless u all…

    4 starters when the bible uses the word men it refers 2 the entire human race, all men & women. Men just play a much larger responsibility in the BIBLE. I also struggle but we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. Married folk have a more difficult time than us singles cuz we have no excuse why we arent getting closer 2 God.

    I am a woman who has really struggled in this area, because I wanted to do things my way. I know God will strenghten us in time of temptation if we ask Him to. As bad as things get, He did say He’d always provide a way out.

    I am a woman who was married and is now single. I disagree that married people have it more difficult. Of course it depends on the person but i find I am struggling now more than ever. I feel that there is no excuse for not being closer to God, married or single. I am finding that it has to do with focus…and is God the center of our focus.

    Temptation is something we will all deal with, and take comfort in knowing that everyone out there is like you in that struggle. We do live in a world created for couples and sexuality, from our movies and books to the married women of the Bible. Yet, I know it’s been said over and over again but singleness is a gift. It says to us that God isn’t ready to share our affection yet and He’s jealous for our love. Singleness shouldn’t be a battle of constant waiting for the mr. or mrs. right of your life to come by. Singleness should be a joyful experience. It’s not a time to be sexual with everyone and it’s not a time to pity yourself when you are lonesome. Singleness is a beautiful span of time where you live in close relationship with the Lord. It’s a time for God to do great works in your life. It’s God’s way of entrusting you with time-laden works for his kingdom. Rejoice in your time as a single. Love others with the love you have been saving for a significant other and you’ll find greater fulfillment than you will in waiting. Love others with abundance.
    “Eat, friends, drink,
    and be drunk with love.” Song of Solomon 5:1
    Do not awaken love until it is ready. Please.

    I am woman who was once married but now a widow. Its indeed very hard to leave a single life. When you have that lust for men you even fail to pray. So those people who c ome around to propose you are married men. There are some times when you need to be close to a man. Though as a single woman you have more time to pray and do other heavenly things.
