Having a spouse, girlfriend, children, etc. are not prizes for being "good." On the same note, not having them is not punishment. God gives us everything we need. If we do not have the things we want, God has a reason. Trust Him! He knows way better than me, what I need. Maybe God wants me to be single my whole life, shall I be ungrateful? Shall I waste a single moment of gratitude and grace to indulge in my own version how I think things should be? I must admit sometimes I do... But I am surrounded by people that remind me I can choose otherwise. I hope you are too. Blessings.
