W.H.O.L.E SINGLES: ARE YOU A WHOLE SINGLE?
A whole single is a person who is complete in themselves and who they are in Christ, a person who is sufficient, entire, undivided, full and in one piece. A WHOLE single is a person of strength, dignity, unity and grace. WHOLE singles are men and women of tremendous worth who value themselves, own their personal value and are confident in themselves and their God. WHOLE singles are free people who live interesting lives; lives that are free from self-pity, regret, desperation, depression and low self-esteem. Whole singles are men and women who make a choice daily to honor God in their singleness, invest in the lives of others and live an abundant life. They are single men and women who act on purpose and with intentionality to impact their world and transform the lives of people in their sphere of influence - their children, relatives, future spouse, co-workers, friends etc. Whole singles are men and women who are comfortable in their own skin and live lives of purpose, passion and power.
Simply stated, a whole single is a person who does not have to look outside of themselves and Christ who lives in them, for their sense of self-worth, self-validation, confidence, affirmation and well-being. S/he knows that in Christ, s/he is enough! S/he is self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. Apostle Paul was a whole single! In Philippians 4:13 (AMP) he said: “I can do all things, which He has called me to do, through Him who strengthens and empowers me to fulfill His purpose. I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuse me with inner strength and confident peace.” What he is saying is that he finds his confidence, faith, strength, empowerment, purpose, peace and well-being in Christ. He was whole.
Whole people are dependable, steadfast and reliable. They have integrity and character. They are comfortable in their own skin and take responsibility and personal accountability for their lives, choices and decisions. You don’t have to do tricks or jump through hoops to keep a whole person happy. You don’t have to exhaust yourself to fill them up by constantly pouring praise, affirmation and recognition on them. They draw their confidence, self-definition, strength and identity from their relationship with Christ. That supply never runs out, so they are refilled as needed and have enough overflow to help others. A whole person always brings something of value to the table, themselves, and they always add value to any environment in which they engage. When you’ve been with a whole person, you walk away feeling that you have gained from that interaction. This is why wholeness is so important. Wholeness gives life!
