I've counseled many young women who have wasted so much time building something that God has rejected. They fight against the nudging of the Holy Spirit only to end up broken and weak. All because they invested their heart and soul into building up a relationship that shouldn't have started at all. What are you… Continue reading It’s time to build!
There are only a few seasons I look back on fondly, like my season of singleness. Prior to meeting my husband of two years now, I go beyond reminiscing. I yearn for the closeness I had with God during that time. I lovingly refer to it as my "Desert Years", because during that season it was… Continue reading My Divine Love Story
"When the time is right, I the Lord will make it happen." - (Isaiah 60:22) I am in my 30's and still waiting to be united with the man God designed to be my husband. To be honest, it’s not easy. There were (and still are) times I feel discouraged wondering if there is such… Continue reading Waiting in Anticipation
Meditate on 1 Samuel 2:12-36 & chapter 3 Have you ever taken a relationship for granted? They say, children are a gift from God but did you know, so are relationships. As children of God he sends us relationships, friendships and things as gifts. I recently heard someone say, I hate my house. I've been… Continue reading Make your second chance flourish!
Meditate on 2 Kings 4:8-37 There are so many good looking, satisfying things in this world that are so damaging for you. Sometimes I wonder, the tree of knowledge must of looked mighty tantalizing and appealing for Eve to have defied God. The repercussions of that flesh led decision were devastating, consequences of which we… Continue reading Discerning Godly from faux.
Read and meditate: Nehemiah 4 Singleness is a time to actively wait. Wait on God but actively pursue God's purpose for your life. This season is a once in a lifetime kind of season. The Lord is calling you to build up your life in preparation of the future. Your preparation will look different than… Continue reading Build towards your future
The world says, "love hurts". My past extensive dating experience would agree but it's appropriate to include a much needed caveat. Love hurts when it's not within God's will. God's will is for us to love one another. (John 13:34) Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world where love and pain go hand in hand… Continue reading Love hurts
There's a misconception that waiting is synonymous with wasting. Well I guess it depends on what you're waiting for. If you're waiting for the "perfect man", I'm afraid you're going to be waiting for a long time and quite frankly wasting your time. But if you're praying for your singleness and waiting on God's purpose… Continue reading Waiting?
In part 1, I discussed the ramifications of choosing to be unequally yoked with an unbeliever but did you know that you could be in a relationship with a believer and still be unequally yoked? Discerning this one is a little trickier because most of the time we are so focused on the "is this… Continue reading What if I decide to be unequally yoked? Part 2
As I share my past experiences, I pray my words be seasoned with grace and love. My hope and prayer is that my story touch the lives of women who are in dangerous relationships and on the brink of making a life altering decision like that of marriage. I counsel young women online and the… Continue reading What if I decide to be unequally yoked? Part 1
