Being Content For All The Wrong Reasons

Someone recently asked me, “Are you praying for a wife?” I answered honestly, “No, not really.” The person seemed surprised. “But why not?” My reply was something like: “Well, I’m young, and I just moved here and started a new life on my own. I don’t need to settle down right away.” It’s a nice line. One I’ve grown accustomed …

When You’re In The Waiting Process

A long-time friend recently confided to me that she and her husband are struggling to conceive a child. “Being patient is the hardest thing for me right now,” she said to me. “I believe I will get a baby, but my heart wants it now. I know it will be sweeter in God’s time, but it’s so hard to watch …

When God Doesn’t Meet Your Expectations

What happens when God doesn’t meet your relationship expectations? If you’ve been single for any amount of time, then you’ve probably had to face this question before.

Distracted By Singleness

In an attempt to encourage, people often like to share with singles the many “pros” to being single. I’ll admit, there are pros to singleness.

When You Feel Like You’re Sitting On The Bench

The football swished through the air and he leapt up as high as he could to meet it. As he grabbed it and tucked it close, a body flew at him, pinning him to the ground. Immediately I yelled at the top of my lungs, “Tommy, you’re done! You’re out of the game! Go sit down.” I work in a …

When You’re Stood Up

I sat there and waited. And I waited, and waited. I had made a coffee date for Saturday afternoon at 2:30 and arrived about 2:20 pm. I sent her a text saying I was there about five minutes before our meet time. No reply. Around 2:45, I sent another note asking if she was close. No reply. After 40 minutes of waiting, I decided …

When We Ask Ourselves Why Am I Not Enough?

I’m so tired of crying. I cried when my first girlfriend and I broke up and I cried when my second girlfriend and I broke up. I felt this deep sadness and despair. I contemplated what I could have done differently to keep the relationship going. I wrestled with those thoughts and tried to put together the jigsaw that seemed …

Why You’re Settling For The Wrong Person (And What To Do About It)

It was our second date. And quite honestly, one date too many. As I sat across from this man I’d known only a couple of weeks, a million reasons crossed my mind as to why I shouldn’t be there. I’d just witnessed him making fun of someone. He talked non-stop about the other women he’d recently dated. He was arrogant. …

Hello From The Other Side (Of Dating)

I once was so single that I saw love around every corner: I mistook nearly any new man I met for a heaven-sent husband. That included the man who loved God, but was still caught in serious addiction; the man who loved God, but was dating three other women; and of course the man who disliked God, but paid so …
