  1. I tell girls and women all the time to wait for the right person. It is much better than having unhappy or unhealthy relation ships. God’s love keeps you as His beloved and He knows when to give you away.

    1. So true Rebecca! Patience is hard but so worth it as God’s timeline unfolds. Thanks for encouraging those girlies around ya!

  2. I am a single 39 year old woman who yearns deeply to be a wife and mother. It is a desire that I cannot shake, but I also realize that becoming a mother might happen for me in a different way; whether that be through fostering/adopting etc. Thanks for your honest vulnerable post. Blessed by you words today and blessed to be your neighbor at Coffee for your Heart.

    1. In the desires we cannot shake, our joy is found in their surrender into His faithful and capable hands! He’s got you, Tara! No matter how they unfold, so long as we stay enraptured by Him, we are where we were always meant to be. At 34, in this with you girl!

  3. In spite of 3, that’s right, I’m ashamed to admit THREE failed marriages, and being 56 years old, it saddens me to say I still long to be married. As long as I can remember, I’ve always desired to be married. But not in God’s plan for me after 6 years of being single – again.
    But, I’ve recently experienced times of peace. And less times of angst over my single status. That alone is a tremendous blessing and I thank my Lord for answering my cries for His help.

    1. Peace! Such an overlooked but super valuable guide to our most fulfilling lives. I have found His peace to be invaluable in decisions, large and small, and by it He has kept me in my hardest times. Keep your heart stayed upon Him and He will most certainly keep you there, in His peace. (Isaiah 26:3)
