Who You Are

I thrive on inspiration, encouragement, words of affirmation, and quality time. Although I am fortunate enough to have a great circle of friends, there are times where I long for companionship and I wander, “Is there something wrong with me?” “Do I need to do something else Lord?” Because it seems like the one thing I long for (companionship) others get it with ease. But, isn’t that how it always works? We have to find a way to be ok without it, before we can appreciate having it.

I have spent many nights crying out to God to be ENOUGH for me and I can testify that he has filled that void. There are times, where I have that pang of loneliness, but it no longer takes over my life, and I am thankful for that.

I like this video, because it reminds me, that wherever I find myself in life, that I am right where God wants me to be, and if i want God’s best for my life, then I have to be ok with being single. As soon as I accepted that, I have found such peace in my spirit and while being single, I have been blessed to do many great things for the Lord.

It’s not often that I hear that I am doing a good job, but in my heart I know that everyday I am striving to be better than the day before. I know that I fall short, but I thank God for giving me the strength to carry on, and I know that I have a heart that was repaired by God to love again!!!

  1. As I read your post, memories came back of my struggles with being single. As the years passed, I asked God what was wrong with me. And it did not help that my family whispered statements like, “Too bad she NEVER got married.” I was determined that I would be content in whatever state The Lord had me in and that He would be enough. I began to disciple young ladies in my church and on my job and mentor my nieces. I took several seminary classes. Contentment began to flood my heart and spirit and I found myself planning for my life as a single woman. And at 39 years old, I married my husband. Today we celebrate 24 years of marriage!! Look up, seek Him and He will write your life story.

    • Thank you for your encouraging words. The struggle is real, as I’ve talked to you several times about it. But I have a peace that I have never felt before in regards to this situation and I’m so thankful.
