Publisher's Description

Tired of feeling sorry for yourself? Sick of answering the same old questions about why you still haven't found your perfect match?

Despite what many people think, singleness is not a disease. It's not the lesser option. Singleness is God's gift to you today.

In Thrive, Lina AbuJamra - who has been single for over 40 years - will show you how you can make a difference with your life right now instead of sitting around waiting for something to happen to you. If you're ready to figure out what God has to say about singleness instead of relying on your own feelings and conclusions, this book is for you.

Isn't it time you get excited about your life in Christ and quit falling back into the same old pattern of thinking? Freedom. Joy. Abundance. Hope. All these are yours the moment you embrace all that God has for you right here right now.

Go ahead. It's ok to smile. Life as a single Christian is good.

    This review was written for Thrive: The Single Life as God Intended.
    Are you tired of the singles' scene? Do you feel you were made for something more than hoping, looking, and waiting? Abujamra writes, "You were made to thrive." (12) Jesus died for your sins and promised abundant life - not a life waiting for the right spouse.

    If you don't want another singles book on waiting but rather one on living, this one is for you. "You are not half a whole;" she writes, "you were made whole in Christ." (14) She wants you to live that life, to thrive.

    Singleness is a gift God has lovingly and purposefully given to you in order to thrive. (God really does know best.)

    Abujamra discusses five attitudes every single must have to thrive: learning contentment (four steps), choosing self-control (sex), embracing personal holiness as a lifestyle, understanding true freedom (from what you are set free), and pursuing undivided devotion with focus and energy.

    She then tackles four obstacles single Christians must overcome: self-pity (the teaching on this topic is so good and so convicting), bitterness, idolatry, and loneliness.

    She ends the book with practical ideas to get going, She adds short biographies of single people who have had tremendous impact for Christianity.

    I really like this book and highly recommend it. There are several reasons. First is Abujamra's honesty. She shares her struggles, her failures, her questions - her life. Second is her teaching on I Corinthians 7. She is bold in what that passage really says. The single life is a good life (v. 8), a life of purpose (v. 32), and a happier life (v. 40). She has written this whole book from a very biblical viewpoint, something I appreciate very much. She also deals with issues singles face in a very practical way. A great book all around.

    Food for thought: "If God's promises are true, then you were made to thrive no matter what your marital status." (14) "If you're a single Christian _ you get to spend all of the time married people spend on each other to simply focus on the Lord!" (104) "...[Y]our entire purpose and goal, single Christian, if you call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ, is to be utterly and completely devoted to the Lord." (131)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    Great resource for singles, especially those who have been single for years. Very straight-forward and helpful insights into God's plan for the single life.
