And what are all Christians, married or unmarried, called to do? Glorify God in whatever season He has us in. In this article, Segal writes, "My hope in reflecting on Paul’s words is to restore hope and ambition in the hearts of the not-yet married and set them solidly on mission in their singleness."
Many young people long for a spouse and pray that college will be the place that brings them to their mate. But while you're waiting (or learning that God has called you to be single), make the most of the opportunities God has given you now.

Calculating God's will is not a formula or magic equation. Knowing God's will for your life comes from knowing HIM intimately. When you are closely aligned with Him by studying His Word, praying for wisdom, praising His goodness, and keeping Him first in your life you will find it desirable to trust God for your next steps. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
