Single in my 30s- How To Hold On To Hope

In Dating, Podcast, Single by Debra Fileta

What do you do when you find yourself single in your 30s – your mid 30s, in fact – with no prospect of love in sight?

I never imagined I’d be single in my 30s”. 

Today’s caller is looking for some encouragement and trying to assess whether or not she should continue to hold on to hope when she finds herself single at an age she never imagined. 

I’m not gonna lie, there are so many times when our life turns out different than we expected. Whether it’s with singleness, marriage, fertility issues, illness, jobs, or so many other ways that life can dissapoint. 

And in this world, there aren’t always answers as to why that is, but there are certainly truths we can hold on to, promises we can cling to, and lies we can make sure we’re demolishing as we move toward the desires God has placed in our heart. 

Single in my 30s
