Sorry for all the links posts recently! I’ve just been finding some really good articles that have been relating to my life a lot. I felt I couldn’t put it in words any better and admired what these people had to say, so I figured I’d share them with all of you! I am currently on Thanksgiving break and am enjoying some much needed time off. I am trying to find so many things to be thankful for and am just really trying to grow in my relationship with God. He has been doing so much work in my heart these past few days and I can’t wait to see where He takes me from here. I can’t wait for Christmas break and to celebrate the birth of the Jesus with family members!
If you have any prayer requests, suggestions, or just need someone to talk to, let me know!
When I was 16, I got a purity ring. And when I was 25, I took it off. I didnât tell anyone I was doing it â it wasnât a statement or an emotional thing. I just slipped it off my finger that day and…
I am astonished that, in the light of the clear biblical record, anyone would have the audacity to suggest that it is wrong for the afflicted in body or soul to couch their prayers for …
This has always been something I struggle with and this blog post has slightly opened things up for me. I always want to believe that it’s God’s will to spoil us and always make us happy, but the fact is, He is our joy, it should be He who makes us happy and not His great blessings. Sometimes our wills won’t match up with His and that is because He loves us and has greater things in mind for us. We just need to learn to accept the word “no.”
A list of 14 Bible verses for when I can’t understand God’s plan
Recently my heart has been very conflicted. I keep thinking where do I go from here? What does God have planned for me? Am I following the right path? The truth is I am not listening. I keep clouding my mind with thoughts and am not getting any peace from my own worrying. In order to discern what the Lord has in store for me, I need to listen in the first place. I am extremely anxious on this journey right now, but I know God will only draw me closer to Him and for this, I cannot wait. I have been blessed with a great many friends that keep encouraging me and pushing me along and God has used them in my life in so many ways. This weekend had a rough ending, but I intend to start this week in prayer for peace and guidance as I listen to discern what the Lord is asking of me.
I am so grateful for all my followers and I hope you know I love you all! I pray that God is really moving in your lives as well and I would love to hear about this! If you need to talk, have a prayer request, or just a praise post. Let me know! I would love to share on this with you!
Growing up in a Christian home everyone around me seemed to be about marriage and procreation. It seemed only a matter of time until I too was on the band wagon. I quickly watched couples around me pair off and by the time I was a freshmen in college all of my siblings had been married young and I was left to my own defenses. I thought I was messed up and no one could ever love me. I would seek out all my resources to try and fix what was not broken to get someone to love me and be in my life. I was told by a friend during a sincere moment of truth that my problem was, I was obsessed with marriage.
I have come a long way since then. I realized from that moment of truth on, that I needed to start focusing on my relationship with God and not hunting for a man to put in my life. It has been a struggle and I have quickly become bitter many times. I have even had my heart broken along the journey, but it was just that. I was putting my heart into the guy instead of my Lord. I was trying to fix what was broken and heal myself through a guy, when God was sitting right there with open arms loving me all the way.
He knows I am not a shame or a hopeless mess. He knows that yes I am broken, but everyone is. There is someone out there that is broken in the same way to fit perfectly with me. It is not so that we can come together to just be a blessing to each other, but to glorify God. I have come to the conclusion that while being single, I want to enjoy every moment God has blessed me with and know that right now it is just me and Him. I have been reading a lot of articles on single living right now and each one has been super encouraging to read. God’s really taken me from this misunderstanding girl to a woman of Him. I pray that one day He does bless me with a husband, but until then I will stop trying to fix what is not broken. I will seek God and not man. I will cherish all I have and every day I wake up on my own.
