What was your first thought when you read: Good Single Men Over 40 Still Left?
Was your first thought similar to one of the following:

1-     Yeah right, where are they?
2-     I don’t want a “good man” I want a godly/Christian man!
3-     No one is good except God!

I certainly agree with you that God is good. I understand that you want to marry a Christian man. However, you as well as I know there are Christian men who are not living what God considers a “good” life at this moment. They have abandoned the love they once had for Christ.  Sadly, at this very moment, they have left their first love (Revelation 2:4).

On the other hand, there are unsaved single men who are seeking a relationship with God and will come into a relationship with Christ on this very day!

When you/experts/researchers attempt to count how many single Christian men over 40 there are compared to the the number of single Christian women over 40, your numbers are always off....not on point. You see, it is impossible to factor in the “God math.”   

God’s math is seen in Judges 7 when He used Gideon’s army of 300 to defeat an army that biblical scholars believe were several hundred thousand. Although the bible does not provide a specific number of the defeated army, the scholars base their belief on the description given in Judges 7:12:  "the Midianites and Amalekites, all the people of the East, were lying in the valley as numerous as locusts; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the seashore in multitude."  This does not sound like a few hundred people to me!

Another example of God’s math is seen when Elisha’s servant is only able to see the vast enemy army that surrounds them.  Elisha prays for his servant, “O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” He prays that his servant might have eyes to see the myriad of God’s host surrounding them (cf. 2 Kings 6:15-17).  The servant is encouraged once he sees “God’s math” in action.

As a result of not being able to factor in “God’s math” in any statistical research, the results will always be flawed.  Even when you say, there are just a few, just a couple or no Christian men over 40 in your church or bible study group, you may be speaking the truth, as it is at that moment. Yet, while you are speaking, there are men, women and children choosing to follow Him!

I am praying that God will open your eyes that you will see and be encouraged by His math! Here's my personal invite to follow me on Facebook and on Twitter


  1. Thanks Crystal Mary for confirming: good single men STILL left!!!

  2. Crystal Mary your son states that he is in a relationship with Laura Dean on his facebook page.

  3. Tallartist, thanks for the update. Crystal Mary's son may have become involved in relationship since this post was written in May, but there are still other good men left.

  4. I just loved this post too much to not comment... I'm "only" almost 33, but definitely feel tremendous discouragement lately in my complete, utter, no-end-in-sight singleness. So awesome to recognize the truth that God's math and statistics are NOT limited in any way!! Thank you sister!

  5. Carol, thanks for encouraging me by commenting. On the days that you feel most discouraged, I want you to continue to remember God’s math doesn’t add up. His math is based on faith and not sight! Blessings to you, my sister!
