Single but… I NEED HEALING (PART 6)

We don’t always understand the reason we go through terrible relationships.  Some leave emotional scars, while others leave gaping gashes and terrible wounds.  When we experience something awful one thing is for sure – healing is needed.  I love that Jesus Christ is able and willing to set us free from the memories and wounds that attempt to hold us prisoner.  When people would flippantly suggest to me, “Give it to Jesus,” I would not my head and smile through the tears but my heart was screaming out, “HOW?”  Hang with me to learn HOW TO HAND IT OVER TO…

Single but…Moving In? (Part 5)

Our family used to live in an apartment building in the cross section of two suburbs of Cleveland.  When we moved there the building was very nice.  The clientele were respectable people.  There were some grad students, some doctors from a nearby hospital, some senior citizens, and a few young families like us.  The apartments were a great size even though it was a bit pricey, the atmosphere was conducive to the money.  But then they had a move in special…  (Long – drawn out  – dramatic – Siiiiiiiigh) In the matter of a couple of months the building experienced…

Single but… Ready to Find Him (and him) (Part 4)

After posting part 2 to this series, (check it out here if you missed it) I received a question for one of my good friends.  She said, ” Any suggestions on what a single woman should be doing in looking for her godly man? Since now I’m better educated on the difference.”  We thought her question would be echoed by many women, so we decided to write out some action steps for single women looking for her godly man.  Here we go. 1.  Focus on being/becoming a godly woman.   A scripture comes to mind from the book of John:  “I…

Single But…Involved (Part 3)

10 Things Men Say That Really Mean –  You are Not the One (or the Only.)

Single but… Being Pursued (Part 2)

So maybe you are single by choice.  Maybe there are men pursuing you so you feel like you have the upper hand.  Talking with my husband about the last blog post Single but…Looking  (if you missed it click here to read it)  he pointed out a few things to me that I think will be helpful to single women who are currently being pursued by men.   1. Who is after you? The “hunter” or the “farmer” I know you are thinking “Hunters and farmers are not exactly the kind of guys I’m looking for.”  Well just hang with this…

Single but… Looking (Part 1)

“Single but looking” is a category that includes many women.  Many women are looking for something.  Here is my question:  What are you looking for?  Defining your standards helps you find the one you are looking for, instead accepting what you are looking at.  I want to encourage every single woman who is preparing for marriage to be diligent in prayer and fasting for direction so that you will recognize the difference between God’s man and a good man (or good enough man).  Here are three ways to define what you are looking for: 1.  Look to the Word not…

Dream with me.

It makes sense to me.  Blurred vision becoming clear.   Sometimes I have dreams and when I wake up I recap the whole thing.  The details, as strange as they may be, replay in my head.  Movie – like.  Vivid.  Real.  I usually recount the details while asking questions.  Why did that happen?  Who is that person?  What did that mean?  And before I swing my legs off the bed and the soles of my feet hit the floor I am paralyzed with an interpretation.  God floods me with the meaning of one part of the dream, then another part….

FOCUS – What are you looking at!

When my dad picked me up one weekend, he made me a promise – that he would teach me how to drive.  I was 12 and I was overwhelmed with the thought of being behind the wheel.  I was convinced that it would be easy.  How hard could it be to steer a car?  I had plenty of practice watching people drive.  That counts as training.  Right?    This promise elevated my to a rock star status in my esteem.  I reminded him of the promise every few hours.  He assured me he did not forget.  We went out to an…

A Tribute to Georgia McCoy

Reading my devotional this morning, and the first line in all caps was, “THIS IS A TIME IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU MUST LEARN TO LET GO: of loved ones, of possessions, of control.”  I paused and stared at the sentence for a moment – had a little internal argument about not wanting to let go.  I kept reading and I knew exactly why God placed these words in  front of my eyes today.  On Friday I learned of the passing of a woman that blessed my life in many ways.  She hired me for my first job, took me…
