I’m sure everyone is familiar with the Capital One credit card commercial..”Who’s in your wallet.” Well, here’s my question, “Who’s in your spiritual circle?” We all need a set of really good wise, praying and loving friends. These friends also are your cheering section, your confidants but they “check” you when your out of order…and vice versa. I’ve found it’s really important ..paramount even to seek God for Godly relationships, especially in my singleness. The enemy will try to tell you all sorts of lies: you’ll never have anyone, your lonely, your not good enough, no one will accept you etc etc etc…..all these thoughts can bring about depression, low self esteem, low confidence which can lead to all sorts of things that wreak havoc in our lives. Knowing God’s word helps combat the enemy. When you know your a child of God and He wants nothing but the best for you including healthy relationships, you can start allowing Him to transform your mind and ENJOY being single.
One particular scripture stands out the most to me when I first got saved and was seeking God for Christian friends: Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother KJV (this is one my Mom always used on me)
Although I prayed for Godly relationships, my first request was “God fix me…show me how to be friendly and open to people.” Allowing God to search and cleanse my heart and mind is the first step to being whole in Him. Our relationship with God is the first and most important relationship. As I allow Him to heal me, I’m becoming more trusting and receptive to people. God has placed some wonderful men and women in my life to walk this Christian journey with me…..don’t limit your thinking to just praying for a mate..that will come in God’s timing…there is soooo much more to life…JUST ASK THE FATHER< He’ll tell YOU!!
Well is time to officially get this blog up and going. October has many special meanings to me. My Mother’s birthday is today…RIH, its by birthday month 🙂 along with several of my family members. But most importantly its Fall–Harvest time. I’m not particularly a Fall kinda person….less sun light but this October is very different. I’m launching this blog and singles ministry that God has placed in my heart. God has soooo much more for me/us to do, YES EVEN IN OUR SINGLENESS. When we allow HIM to heal, deliver, and complete us….LIFE IS SOOOO MUCH SWEETER. I know the pain of living a single life and wishing and hoping for someone to love you. I know the pain of not knowing your purpose….always feeling like there is more to life but not really knowing how and where to find it. The pain of trying to make people complete you when only GOD can fulfill that role.
Well, my journey to wholeness started two years ago when I gave my life to God….BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!!! There is an old song by James Cleveland called, GOD IS…He is my ALL AND ALL. That song often comes to my mind because its powerful and true. When you decide to live for the Lord, He fills all the empty spaces in your life, gives you true joy and shows you how to walk in His good and perfect plan for your life. I’m so glad Jesus died for me and didn’t give up on me even when I wasn’t thinking about Him.
This ministry blog is dedicated to helping you find your true identity in Christ…you won’t regret a life with Him. It doesn’t matter why you’re single, just know God has a purpose and plan for you now….not after you get a mate. Seeking HIM for everything in life will GIVE YOU LIFE!!!
I haven’t been writing but I have been busy perfecting this website and getting things ready. I finally approved the final version of my business card and ordered them. I’m embarking on new territory…..GOD-led all the way!!! TTYL
I think I have completed the website/blog pages to the best of my abilities….of course with inspiration from THE Holy Spirit. I do realize I am nothing without HIM and couldn’t or wouldn’t have ever thought of pursuing this ministry all on my own. Taking self out the way so GOD can lead and guide and fulfill me…ADVANCING KINGDOM WORK!!
Last night I attended a women’s conference service and Jekalyn Carr was the guest speaker. OMG!!! when I say God will always send you confirmation…His Word is THE TRUTH!!! God is launching me into a new season…as you can see with this blog and webpage…WHO KNEW…MY GOD knew…I’m just trying to be obedient and stay in the right path. You want to know your purpose in life…build your personal relationship with God…repent and turn from sin and SEEK His face—wholeheartedly. I assure you won’t be disappointed…stretched but you won’t snap!! TTYL PEACE OUT!!
This is the post excerpt.
This is definitely a labor of love. I never would have thought in a million years I would be doing God’s work…a singles ministry and blogging. But you know you can’t keep running from God or the call on your life…NO PEACE IN RUNNING!! I must admit this is scary, fun, frightening, frustrating and exhilarating…TOO MURCH..LOL..but if I keep my mind stayed on Him, He will keep me in perfect peace and strengthen me for the work He has called me to do.
