Saved And STILL Single

Pensive womanWhat’s wrong with me?  That’s often a question that single Christian women ask when it comes to dating or finding a mate.  After being a single widow for over five years, I started to ask myself the same question.  Friends say you are so pretty and smart.  Don’t worry God will send someone at just the right time.  Somehow those words just don’t seem to be so comforting when you are feeling lonely.

I’ve heard other women say, “There are just no good men out there.”  I beg to differ.  I’ve met a lot of extraordinary Christian men who would make someone a wonderful husband and be amazing fathers. They fit many checklists for several women handsome, educated, career focused and loving.  So, what is the problem?  Either they weren’t interested in me or I wasn’t interested in them.

To make matters worse, I began to see other single Christian women who were in relationships.  They were not necessarily the best choices.  However, the women were very content with having a man by their side.  They were either dating married men, unsaved men, or men without jobs. How could I knock that?  They seemed happy for the moment at least.

I began to pray one day. “Lord, what is going on?  I serve you faithfully.  I seek your word.  To the best of my abilities, I am trying to obey everything you tell me to do.  Why is it that I meet nice men but nothing happens. What’s the problem?”

I began to think to say to myself, “Maybe I should just settle and take any man. Maybe he doesn’t have to be ‘so spiritual.’ Maybe I need to lower my standards.”  I began to think about compromising the standards I have for a mate. Continue reading

Mary or Martha New Year

Are you starting your New Year’s off like Mary or like Martha?  Mary and Martha were two sisters who welcomed Jesus into their homes. (Luke 10:38-42)  Martha was busy making preparations for Jesus.  Mary was busy spending time with Jesus.

Have you ever spent so much time getting ready to do something that you never actually do it?  Every time I get ready to loose weight, I research the best gym. I look at new diet plans, buy new workout clothes and write a schedule to start on Monday.  Yet, when I actually get ready to do those things I seem to fall short.  I look at those people who just do it and I am in awe!

Why Am I Creating A Blog?

  14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not    believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of    peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”

Romans 10:14–15 (NKJV)

My heart’s desire is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.  Not radical, overly religious, snooty people who are so heavenly bound that they are no earthly good but real, everyday people who love Jesus and want to see his promises come to pass in their lives.  It is my call and passion to see people’s lives radically changed because of the gospel of Jesus.

This blog is really designed for real people who want to see a real change in their life.  It’s my thoughts, devotions, sermons, quotes, or scriptures that impact my life on a daily basis.  I pray that it will impact others as well.

Jesus said we should “Go into all the world and make disciples.”  Matthew 28:19. Social media, blogging and cyberspace is one way in which God has called me to GO into all the world.
