Jesus was not born into a perfect family, but that still didn’t lessen who He was, who He is, and how many lives He continues to change. Christmas is not about having everything perfect with perfect people in their perfect house eating a perfect meal opening gifts under a perfect tree. Christmas is about not thinking of who you don’t have, but rather a reminder to you as singles about the HOPE of an expected future. Maybe you will not celebrate Christmas with your future wife or husband physically, but who says you can’t do it in the spirit? If you trust God, then you know His word is true so walk in what you’re believing as though it is already so (Romans 4:17).
There are plenty of people who would like to be your friend. When was the last time you made some new friends? When was the last time you paid for someone’s meal just because? See the list is endless if you happen to be looking for examples of things to do at Christmas that can occupy your time as you continue to wait on the Lord. Hey, you never know, maybe this is your season, and like Ruth, you might just hap upon your Boaz (Ruth 2:3). Until then look at it this way, one day in the future you will celebrate Christmas with your future wife or husband by your side, and your singleness will be but a mere distant memory. So relax and enjoy your life where you are this Christmas, because Jesus is the reason for the season, and there is also purpose for this season of your life. Go show yourself friendly!!
