Desperate Pursuit

Somewhere I must have stopped praying for a husband because when I caught myself pleading with God, recently, it felt as though I had regressed. It was all at once as though my faith was stronger because I was taking it to Him, but weaker that I wasn’t believing that He was enough. What is... Continue Reading →

Hidden Life

Somewhere along the path, I side-stepped having a normal life. I didn’t do it on purpose, and I don’t even know how it happened. Sometimes I think that if I could figure out where I went wrong, I might be able to do something to change it. Of course, there is really no such thing... Continue Reading →

The Highest Calling

When I first began writing this post, it was dripping with bitterness. I started again, but I still felt the influence of so many years of sadness and hurt. I was writing as Mother’s Day approached. On my mind were of all of exaggerated and sentimental statements I have heard at church, all because the... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Single Blogger

I didn’t wake up one day to find myself forty-something and single. I wrestled with God about it every step of the way. Desperation, anger, bitterness, and depression have all been a part of this journey toward accepting that God’s will for my life is entirely different from my desires and plans. But I can’t...

Chasing Contentment

Not long after completing last week’s blog, I purchased Chris Tomlin’s album Holy Roar,  to entertain me while driving to visit my parents. It wasn’t long before a new song was ringing in my head: Satisfied. It was another reminder that I have all I need in Jesus. Later on in the weekend, I began... Continue Reading →

Changing the Narrative

I remember once my grandpa telling me that he prayed for God to provide husbands for my sister and me, but only if it was in His will. Grandpa stressed the caveat. He wanted me to be aware that God’s will was the most important thing. This was a lesson that would take me years... Continue Reading →

What Am I Doing?

To blog or not to blog? That is the question. At its core, isn’t a blog a soliloquy? The longer I keep this blog, the more I ask myself what I am doing. I ask God that, too. Right around the first of the year, I knew that my WordPress subscription would be renewing, and... Continue Reading →
