Being single when I turned thirty bordered on an identity crisis, for me. Now, I’m forty and I have a different outlook on life and singleness. God has shown me through His word that I was looking at my life from the wrong perspective. I had allowed myself to feel rejected by men as a whole because I was not only unmarried, but wasn’t garnering any interest from the opposite sex. God showed me that, in reality, I had been chosen by Him before the foundation of the earth was laid (Romans 8:29). The cup that I thought was half empty was actually overflowing with blessing. It isn’t always easy to keep a God-centered, eternal perspective, but I am committed staying in the Word and following after God in faith. I want to live out 1 Corinthians 7:34-35 by being “anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit” and striving for “undivided devotion to the Lord.” I want single women to know that God’s Word is for them, too. You can be single and still find joy, even in the midst of life’s disappointments.
I have wanted to be a writer since childhood, but God sent me on a few detours. I had a lot to learn, after all. Dreams of writing novels have been replaced with a desire to teach and share God’s Word. My hope and prayer for this blog is that my lessons and observations will lead people to Scripture and a deeper relationship with the Lord. I pray that God will help me not to seek glory or success for myself in this endeavor. Instead, it is my hope that God will be in this and glorified by this.
